IP business, How to protect FPGA configuration PROM.
I am developing IP core.
Generally, IP core price is too expensive to small company. So I would like to sell the FPGA configuration PROM with bitstream of my IP core. But PROM copy protection is a problem. I want to know how to protect IP core and PROM copy. If it is possible, I could sell the PROM with adding some royalty. I think that this business model is good for IP core provider and IP user.
