Design re-use has often been a major part of software development. We apply the same principles to hardware and FPGA IP.
As we continually build our library of re-usable hardware, software and IP we find our customers benefit from at least 30% re-use on our projects. This reduces development time and cost but also reduces development risk as design components are pre-qualified by other projects.
On some occasions this approach can lead to reductions in BoM cost as we can leverage larger volumes and purchasing relationships we have built for previous customers.
