Prosilog will deliver a configurable adapter, to bridge the gap between IP and any AMBA or CoreConnect bus. Cergy, France, and Portland, ORE. – August 18, 2003 –
Prosilog SA, the leading provider of innovative solutions for SoC design and verification, and Open Core Protocol International Partnership (OCP-IP) announce the availability of a family of OCP compliant bridges for the AMBA and CoreConnect protocols. The bridges support integration and analysis of heterogeneous systems with multiple processors and buses. As a result, for a given OCP compliant IP, Prosilog delivers a configurable adapter, to bridge between the IP and any AMBA or CoreConnect bus.
As an active member of the System Level Design Working Group in OCP-IP, Prosilog works with other members such as Nokia, Sonics, Synopsys and Texas Instruments to address problems relating to design, verification and testing which are common to IP core reuse in "plug and play" system-on-chip (SoC) products and make “bus-independent IP” a reality.
“Prosilog’s adapters are part of a robust infrastructure surrounding OCP, ensuring a complete socket standard that everyone can use, no matter what their on-chip architecture is, or whose processor cores they're using,” said Ian Mackintosh, president, OCP-IP. “We are extremely proud of the work done by Prosilog as part of OCP-IP’s System Level Design Working Group.”
This set of bridges from Prosilog is included into the Magillem environment (platform generation and IP integration tool) as well as into Prosilog’s IP portfolio. About OCP-IP
The OCP International Partnership Association, Inc. (OCP-IP) was announced in December 2001 to promote and support the open core protocol (OCP) as the complete socket standard that ensures rapid creation and integration of interoperable virtual components. OCP-IP's Governing Steering
Committee participants are: Nokia [NYSE: NOK,], Texas Instruments [NYSE: TXN], ST Microelectronics [NYSE: STM], United Microelectronics Corporation [NYSE: UMC], Sonics, and other industry leading companies. OCP-IP is a non-profit corporation delivering the first fully supported, openly licensed core-centric protocol that comprehensively fulfills system-level integration requirements. The OCP facilitates IP core reusability and reduces design time and risk, along with manufacturing costs for SoC designs. For additional background and membership information, visit www.OCPIP.org
