Download Soft IP Tagging
The purpose of this standard is to tag soft Intellectual Property (IP) to enable date-driven tracking of soft IP usage. The standard supports the tracking of soft design IP through the development process such that it can be readily identified in a final GDSII database. This facilitates a data-driven method to track IP "where used" for applications such as ownership, royalty calculations and recognition; implemented version identification for applicable bug fixes and errata; and others.
The standard aligns with the VSIA-developed Virtual Component Identification Physical Tagging Standard, (Hard IP Tagging Standard).
The IP Tagging 1.0 Standard was developed by the IP Tagging Working Group.
