Reuse of IP and virtual components can support both bridging the "design gap" and realizing reuse-based System-on-Chip design. As a fundamental effort, design of common interface standards for virtual components provide features required to accommodate IP and to transfer IP in a virtual market place, i.e., introducing a methodological shift from intracompany reuse to intercompany application. IPs are described and categorized and the most common types are presented by their distinctive

The viewpoint of designers, providers and users is sketched and related to the roadmap and IP business models, in order to visualize the requirements for an IP market. From the large number of ongoing research work, two developments have been selected to show the shift to a new paradigm: An IP protection methodology that is part of a standardization initiative, and a concrete implementation of a reuse management system that supports intercompany reuse of IP.
