About Design and Reuse
Design & Reuse (D&R) was founded in October, 1997 by
Gabriele Saucier and Philippe Coeurdevey as a web portal for
disseminating value-added information on electronic virtual
components, specifically IP (intellectual property) and
SoCís (systems-on-chips). Shortly thereafter, D&R extended its
scope to also include providing enterprise-level IP management
D&R as a Web Portal
D&R launched its industry leading web and B2B portal (www.design-reuse.com) for the IP/SoC market in 1997. Today, with 15,000 IP/SOC product descriptions updated daily and an average of 70,000 absolute unique visitors to the site per month (source: Google Analytics), plus Design & Reuse News email broadcasts enjoyed by 35,000 subscribers and its client to IP and service provider matching capabilities,
the Design-Reuse.com site provides important services to the IP industry. More recently D&R launched a sister site,
www.dr-embedded.com, to address the interest in resources specifically required for the Embedded design space such as software, OSís, and platforms.
Customers have come to expect that D&R will always keep them up to date on IP industry related news and new product launches through the announcements and marketing campaigns published on the
Design-Reuse.com website. Recognizing Design-Reuse.com as the ďgo-toĒ website for IP information and D&Rís reputation for industry leading services and B2B matching capabilities, over 400 companies around the world use D&Rís website and electronic newsletter channels to provide the latest information on their products to current and prospective customers.
The mission of D&R Services is to enable the efficient
operation of IP businesses. As part of that mission, D&R
provides IP cataloguing services on its public web portal that are
updated in real time and available worldwide, 24 hours a day. It
also provides ďprivateĒ catalogs where data from 3rd party IP
vendors is automatically sent to client company intranets through
their firewalls to support their internal designers. D&R also
provides Foundry Gateways for disseminating accurate IP maturity
information on hard IP for specific process nodes.
