Digital IP Core Modules

Digital IP Cores

The Data Communication and Computing (DCC) division of Fraunhofer IPMS specializes in the development and licensing of platform-independent and silicon-proven IP core modules that can be seamlessly integrated into all FPGA types and ASIC technologies. Our IP cores and services enable developers to accelerate the integration of complete functional areas into SoCs, microcontrollers, FPGAs and ASICs, significantly reducing both development time and cost.

In addition, our commitment goes beyond the existing IP core portfolio. We offer customization services to develop tailored solutions based on your specific requirements. Once licensed, our IP core support ensures seamless integration into your overall system. We also offer further implementation services to enhance your design results. Additionally, a significant portion of our IP cores are pre-certified for safety-critical applications.

With over two decades of experience in IP core development and licensing, we have established partnerships with several hundred licensees worldwide. Most of our customers operate in demanding automotive, aerospace and automation sectors.
