PORTLAND, Ore.--Feb. 1, 2006--The Open Core Protocol International Partnership (OCP-IP) will again feature a conference-within-conference program at the Design Automation and Test Europe (DATE) held 6-10 March 2006 in Munich, Germany. The Pavilion will host exhibits from several OCP-IP member companies including CAST, Jeda Technologies, Nascentric, Sonics, TransEDA and Yogitech. The Pavilion is an open discussion forum in the midst of Europe's largest electronic system design exhibition. The pavilion program will combine expert panel sessions and papers, offering visitors a view into key technical trends and insight into the SoC market of the future.
Papers and panels will encompass the diverse issues surrounding re-usable IP, such as: IP development, purchasing, interconnect, verification and testing, IP quality, network on chip (NOC) and more.
Presentations will be given by many OCP-IP member companies including: CAST, CoWare, First Silicon Solutions, Jeda Technologies, Mentor Graphics, Nascentric, Nokia, OnDemand, Sonics, Summit Design, TransEDA, Yogitech, and many more. Panels will include: "It's physics, not logic: Raising abstraction back to the transistor," "Reviving Productivity with ESL and FPGA Platforms," "Competition vs. Partnership: Turning partnerships into improved business results" and others.
