IP strategies in the semiconductor industry have often been determined by the rapidly developing technology.
Different IP strategies have been applied over the past six decades with development models such as fabless and foundry concepts. Unique IP strategies arise from these techniques.
The modern day technological landscape for the semiconductor industry is relatively fragmented into specialist areas. However, within these areas and the interfaces between these areas, there are significant opportunities for patent protection. Beck Greener has significant experience advising clients in both semiconductor fabrication and chip design.
