The Spirit Consortium

The SPIRIT Consortium supplies, and will further develop, specifications that enable increased design automation for IP re-use methodologies built on multi-vendor tool flows. This is achieved through unifying ways to describe and provide IP to enable rapid import into tools, automated design configuration and integration, and consistent architectural design refinement from system-level design through to chip layout. By adhering to the specifications, IP suppliers will be able to target their designs automatically to multiple tools, tool vendors will have the ability to rapidly import IP-libraries and designs, and systems-on-chip designers will be able to develop complex 'first-time-right' designs on multi-vendor tool and IP flows customized to their specific needs.
