Intellectual Property Ownership Manager
Yotta's Intellectual Property (IP) Ownership Auditor is similar to the technology that we're offering as our Hard IP Royalty Auditor and Identity Manager. The use-model, though, is different / the reporting is different. There are situations where a company questions whether its IP is in use by others who've not a license. Or, there have been situations where a company suspects that its IP part of a device in manufacturing at a Foundry. Unless the IP is an exact copy, the determination can be costly and the outcome; especially when the suspected IP has been obfuscated in some way that apparently masks its identity, uncertain.

Yotta's Ownership Auditor creates a snapshot of all of the cell views from their source through cell, block and chip level design. It stores a versioned history of the cell views that had been used to create the IP. This signature database can be compared against the signatures created for the suspected IP. A complete mapping of matches will be reported including partial matches where there have been attempts to obfuscate the use of the IP.

The Master Database and Ownership Auditor Point Tool can be stored and invoked from a laptop. The owner's IP remains with the owner. The audit is secure for both parties. Only the signatures are stored compared for matching cell views. The technology can be used, by concerned parties in litigation, mediation or informal audits. Rather than a manual audit taking days, weeks or even months, Yotta's technology reports matches within billions of cell views in multiple data formats in a matter of minutes.
