DUBLIN & BEAVERTON, Ore.--October 12, 2010--Duolog Technologies and OCP-IP today announced that Duolog will provide its OCP-Tracker performance analysis tool free of charge to members of OCP-IP. The Open Core Protocol (OCP) is an openly-licensed bus protocol for on-chip communications. Duolog’s OCP-Tracker tool allows designers of OCP-based systems to tune their system architectures to maximize performance.
OCP-Tracker is a software tool that provides graphical performance, statistical and transaction analysis of OCP interfaces and fabrics. It also enables validation of performance metrics via a built-in regression manager. OCP-Tracker seamlessly interfaces with OCP-IP’s CoreCreator II trace files to allow bandwidth, latency and other types of performance metrics to be analyzed. OCP-Tracker’s 3D 360° navigation engine allows these metrics to be visualized in an intuitive way so that even the most complex scenarios can be easily understood. With its ease of use, OCP-Tracker allows designers to comprehensively diagnose the performance of OCP-based systems in a predictable and intuitive manner.
“We are delighted to be able to deliver a complimentary version of OCP-Tracker to OCP-IP members,” said Ray Bulger, co-founder and CEO of Duolog Technologies. “There was a tremendous response when we previously provided our OCP-Conductor transaction analysis tool to OCP-IP members. We have now decided to also make OCP-Tracker available so that OCP-IP members can harness the powerful array of features from both tools.”
“OCP-IP continues to deliver best-of-breed products to our members,” said Ian Mackintosh, president and chairman of OCP-IP. “OCP-Tracker gives the OCP-IP community access to a sophisticated graphical performance analysis solution. We are pleased to partner with Duolog again to enable the expansion of our extensive infrastructure of solutions that we provide to our members.”
OCP-IP paying members can request OCP-Tracker and OCP Conductor immediately as part of their benefits of membership. Details are available by visiting the OCP-IP website at www.ocpip.org.
