| SAN FRANCISCO — Design and Reuse (D&R), a global collaboration network for sharing system-on-chip (SoC) design resources, said Friday that it has formed a partnership with China Software and Integrated Circuit Platform (CSIP). |
The agreement includes a secure entry portal from CSIP to D&R. The agreement also includes a cooperation plan for completing a database, enhancing provider visibility, organizing common events and training.
"I am delighted to see that intellectual property in electronic design contributes to create a connected world," said Gabriele Saucier chair of D&R, in a statement. "We hope to open more market opportunities to D&R partner companies and enlarge the community of 37,000 registered users of our portal."
Yanhui Wang, general manager of CSIP's IC business division, said the agreement with D&R would contribute to establishing appropriate links between CSIP and mature SoC players.
CSIP is an institution through which the Chinese government guides the development of the software and IC industries and provides resources and technical services for innovation.
D&R is partly owned by CMP Media LLC, which also owns EE Times.
