Objectives and Approach

This project, together with project 2270, was a forerunner to the main IDPS project, 5075. Projects 2426 and 2270 were each active for 12 months, and established the viability of the IDPS concept. The ongoing IDPS project (5075) includes the same key partners and has as its basis the work carried out in each of these earlier projects.

The IDPS project's aim is to provide to the European IT industry the basis of a full service for designing systems integrated on silicon, and for producing them in various foundries. IDPS aims to achieve a total turnaround from the behavioural specification of a system to the corresponding tested working chip in approximately one month.
