HCM CITY — A laboratory for testing intellectual property cores opened at the National University of HCM City in Thu Duc District last week.
An IP core refers to a chip layout design that may be licesed to one or more chip makers but whose IP rights ves with the owner.
The VND9.2 billion (US$440,000) public lab, which will support the integrated circuit (IC) design industry, has been built by the university's IC Design Research & Education Centre.
Initially, it will help verify small and medium IP cores designed by the centre and its partners. — VNS
