IPextreme teams with TSMC, Atrenta, and Sonics to focus on IP quality at DAC 2014
Online PR News – 14-May-2014 – Campbell, CA – IPextreme, Inc. today announced that it will again team with TSMC, Atrenta, and Sonics to present an IP workshop on Sunday, June 1, 2014 from 1:00 to 5:00 PM at the 51st Design Automation Conference (DAC) in San Francisco, California. This in-depth, interactive workshop will demonstrate a complete flow, using de facto industry standards, for designing, packaging, and integrating semiconductor IP, ensuring that quality metrics are observed and preserved throughout the flow on the engineer’s desktop.
The quartet of companies delivered a similar workshop last year at 50th DAC in Austin, Texas and, in response to customer demand, will reprise it with updated content. As before, the companies will present how their individual products work together in a cohesive fashion for the benefit of the SoC designer:
• TSMC will explain the TSMC9000 quality standards and how they benefit both IP providers and IP consumers;
• Atrenta will demonstrate the use of SpyGlass® and the Atrenta IP Kit for the analysis of IP against a set of standard quality metrics;
• Sonics will demonstrate the creation of configurable IP and the manner in which it is validated and checked against quality metrics using the TSMC Soft IP Kit 2.0 flow;
• IPextreme will demonstrate the use of Xena™ for storing and managing completed IP products, showcase how users can configure IP on the fly, and re-verify the quality metrics produced from the IP Kit in the Cloud.
The workshop will realistically demonstrate how engineers from different companies use their proprietary tools and technology to work together to produce high quality, first-time-correct IP products. Ample time will be allocated throughout the workshop for open discussion and technical questions from the audience. Attendees are encouraged to engage the presenters at all stages of the workshop.
