Intellectual property modules for chip manufacturers
IP (Intellectual property) modules represent an assembly plan to implement complete function blocks in hardware. Typical applications include, e.g. electric control units for engine, transmission and safety systems. Bosch is one of the pioneers in automotive IP business.
IP modules allow chipmakers to quickly adopt complete ranges of functions in standard products such as microcontrollers, FPGAs and automotive ASSPs, thus significantly reducing development times and costs.
We constantly develop IP modules and transfer functional updates to standards. Numerous suppliers and OEMs appreciate this system expertise and rely on processors with built-in IP modules from Bosch for their electronic control units.
