Abstract: In this paper we will review how the IP Reuse SoC design methodology has evolved from its first introduction, heavily based on IP Reuse to a state-of-the-art design flow based on soft and hard IP block and floorplanning tools. This will be illustrated in one complex SoC present in the broadband communication market today, which is a Set Top Box IC containing a proprietary 64-bits processor and some general-purpose blocks, along with dedicated functions specifically designed by STMicroelectronics. In order to …
