Soft IP

Soft IP Task force

The SoftIP taskforce prepares for this by performing a gap analysis and scope definition for evaluation of SoftIP cores. The work builds on the methodologies that are in use for Secure Element (Smartcard chips) and the 3S in SoC. We identify the similarities and differences in the evaluation processes, the risks inherent to the SoftIP supplier/consumer relationship and create a gap analysis of differences with the current evaluation processes.

The taskforce provides recommendations to the Eurosmart board for next steps, such as creating a new working group to develop a methodology for evaluating SoftIP Cores and for using the results of such evaluation for the certification of silicon products.
