We are interested in the problem of improving ipreuse in SoC design. This paper presents an MDE based approach based on a proposed IP-XACT standard extension. This approach combines the benefits of using MDE techniques in SoC design such as abstraction levels definition and model transformation for code generation, and the benefits of the IPXACT standard such as a unique exchange format of packaged IPs (Intellectual Property) with reuse capabilities.
