Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Evatronix IP Business (Jun 13, 2013)
Gliwice & Bielsko-Biala, Poland & Portland, OR, USA, October 19th 2007 - Evatronix SA, the silicon Intellectual Property (IP) provider, and Open Core Protocol International Partnership (OCP-IP) announced today that Evatronix has upgraded its membership from a participant to an OCP-IP community member status. Evatronix plans to extend application of OCP-IP standards in its IP cores, providing an interface which will allow customers to seamlessly integrate Evatronix’ products in their applications.
OCP International Partnership promotes and supports Open Core Protocol as an industry standard for SoC design community to address problems relating to design, verification and testing which are common to IP core reuse in SoC products. This complete socket standard ensures rapid merging of interoperable virtual components in complex integrated systems.
“The verification tools and support Evatronix receives from OCP-IP as its member definitely help us to ensure strict compliance of our IP core interfaces to the OCP standard. Company’s strategic commitment to its customers is to allow smooth integration of our IP cores into SoCs in which they are used” said Wojciech Sakowski, Evatronix co-President. “This is what OCP is about - it makes IP cores easily adoptable to various on-chip bus architectures. Our NANDFLASH controller core version equipped with OCP socket, which will confirm our endorsement to OCP, will be available for licensing in the first quarter of 2008.” he concluded.
“We are pleased to see a new IP developer that adopts and supports OCP and to welcome Evatronix to our community,” said Ian Mackintosh, President of OCP-IP.
“OCP plays a major role as an IP core interface because it enables SoC designers to integrate IP blocks into their applications in a fast and effective way, which is essential to keep up with the market growth as well as ever-shortening time-to-market.”
The OCP International Partnership Association, Inc. (OCP-IP), formed in 2001, promotes and supports the Open Core Protocol (OCP) as the complete socket standard ensuring rapid creation and integration of interoperable virtual components. OCP-IP's Governing Steering Committee participants include: Nokia, Texas Instruments, Toshiba Semiconductor Group (including Toshiba America TAEC), and Sonics. OCP-IP is a non-profit semiconductor industry consortium delivering the first fully supported, openly licensed, core-centric protocol comprehensively fulfilling system-level integration requirements. The OCP facilitates IP core reusability and reduces design time, risk, and manufacturing costs for SoC designs. For additional background and membership information, visit http://www.OCPIP.org
