Chip/IP Migration Offer


Process migration is key to extending the lifespan and optimizing the business value of existing chip designs and semiconductor intellectual property (IP). And as part of chip or IP design best practices, it can also hold the key to dramatically lower risk of supply chain disruption that are a normal part of any global business.

The benefits of process migration are simple and clear, but the task itself is rather complex. Business goals must be clear, technology impacts/choices aligned to those goals. Once a path forward is established, companies must have the expertise and resources available to migrate and validate the efficiently.


Capgemini engineering provides global and fully automated Validation & Verification (V&V) platform, and a full training journey solution thanks to its Global Training Center to upskill and train engineers. We support as well function development, on turnkey mode and as an integrator partner.
