Point 1: The Need for quality IP.The chart depicts the rise in the percentage of SoC development costs that are focused on the procurement and integration of semiconductor IP. Note that IP in this context includes third party as well as internally developed IP. Since a rising amount of SoC cost is associated with IP, it becomes important to be more efficient at the task of choosing and integrating IP. A critical aspect of this is to understand the quality and integration risks of IP *before* it is implemented in the chip. If you start with good quality raw materials, the project will go smoother. This is true for any project, not just an SoC.On the other hand, if you discover you have chosen poor raw materials during implementation, the project will be in big trouble.
