You are invited to participate in a short survey on IP Integration and its impact on Chip and System on a chip (SoC) design. 

We would greatly appreciate it if you could provide us some feedback on this important topic. The survey will only take about 3 minutes to complete. Please answer all questions so we have a comprehensive data set.  

All respondents will be entered into a prize drawing to win a $500 Amazon Gift Card, and all will receive an Executive Summary of the report.

This survey is being hosted by Chip Design, Embedded Systems Engineering and Embedded Intel® Solutions. 

Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you –  Vince Ridley, Group Publisher
