San Jose, CA - March 17, 2003 - Finding accurate information about IP to help design managers make the right choices is a real challenge and many large companies design groups may have difficulties getting fast, accurate information about what is available worldwide
To address such an issue D&R proposes easy mechanisms for accessing D&R strategic information across a company. Members of a "corporate D&R user group" get an unique simple corporate wide login and password for accessing D&R's large set of well established and continually updated resource catalogs ranging from silicon IPs to embedded software, design platform and design services. Thus these designers easily become members of the large community of 25 000 D&R registered users.
Via the IP Search/Find Club, D&R helps these members find in a short time the most accurate answer to a design need, and establish a reliable dialog with potential IP providers. Leveraged by its 100.00 page views per month, this service commits to find worldwide the best solution for SOC designers.
In addition D&R provides a weekly IP/SOC News Alert and a quarterly IP/SOC market analysis.
"The up-to-date information about IP cores and IP companies that D&R gathers daily is valuable to anyone whose business depends on IP cores. We set up a private users group with D&R to make this type information instantly available to our design engineers and business people to support them in closing deals and delivering ASICs. This also supports our goal of propagating the IP re-use culture within our company," said Richard Tobias, Vice President of the ASIC and Foundry Business Unit at TAEC.
"We are glad to leverage the huge effort that D&R provides in updating daily all the SoC resources available in the market. This is another way for helping the SoC business" said Gabriele Saucier chair of the board of D&R.
If D&R is well known for its programs dedicated to IP providers D&R is less known for its user group program granting a valuable set of privileges to large IP consumers.
Please contact D&R to learn more about its user program.
