From its infancy 20 years ago, the semiconductor IP industry has evolved into the major driving force of today’s semiconductor landscape. This talk will take a historical view of the changes in the industry over the past twenty years, looking at how the landscape (environment) has changed and how individual companies either adapted or simply went away. What will the IP industry and players in the future look like?
