Starting IP company

Hi all,

I was wondering what does it get to start an IP company in the world of FPGA's? What does a company need to get started?

How to search for partners to get the company started up? How to search clients,...
Do you have to create first an IP and fill a catalog that you publish or do you need to get a contract from a customer and start developing the IP?

Thanks.

The IP world is overcrowded and is hardly worth the effort....

Have the a look at the R&D website with IP catalogue.... about 1/3 or half of the companies do not exist anymore...

Guys who work with FPGA get most of the stuff from the FPGA vendors (CoreGen, MegaCores etc) and the guys who do ASIC get their stuff from Synopsys, the Fab or other major vendors with the tools. There isn't really a market for little bits and piece.

Only if you design something major, one big core, e.g. (A complete solution for.. e.g. USB3) you have some chances
