Design And Reuse

Collaboration and knowledge sharing in a company are mandatory for reaching time to market. This sharing process is to day badly needed for many reasons such as globalization of design services, the decentralization of design teams, the use of external IPs, the system complexity requiring co-design, etc…

The author states that a revolution was necessary in Reuse / Collaboration infrastructure so that sharing Designs and Design Knowledge can be effective in a company without overhead and design methodology intrusion.

It will be shown that the key ingredients (Java, XML and Web features) have made design and kKnowledge modeling and sharing possible to day.


Gabriele Saucier received her PhD from the University of Grenoble, where she was a professor and headed a research lab on Integrated System Design. She has published more than 350 papers in the design and EDA fields. Dr. Saucier is an IEEE fellow for her contributions in synthesis, test generation and fault tolerance. Leaving her university career, in the 1990s she founded a synthesis company, IST (Innovative Synthesis Technologies), mainly dedicated to FPGA synthesis, and in 1997 Design and Reuse, dedicated to IP-based design. She has launched two successful conferences – Euroasic and IP/SoC.
