IP Talks! Features IP Suppliers at Design Automation Conference

Semiconductor IP will take center stage at IP Talks! 2008, a showcase for the latest IP technology at this year’s Design Automation Conference (DAC). Sponsored by the ChipEstimate.com chip planning portal, IP Talks! provides an opportunity for DAC attendees to meet with leading IP suppliers and learn about how the latest in semiconductor IP can help them accelerate their design success. Now in its second year, IP Talks! can be seen June 9-11 at booth 2358.

This year’s IP Talks! will include live presentations from Algotronix, ARM, Cadence, The Common Platform, Denali, Elliptic, eSilicon, IPextreme, GSA, Kilopass, Mixel, Mosys, Rambus, Sarnoff Europe, Silicon & Software Systems (S3 Group), Sidense, Synopsys, True Circuits and Virage Logic. A schedule of presenters — which is being updated often — is available.

The ChipEstimate.com chip-planning portal hosts a collaborative partnership of over 175 IP suppliers and foundries featuring over 6,000 IP components. This partnership enables customers to access a wide range of design and verification IP and to explore and quantify the IP within their specific design context. IP quality and technical characteristics are accessible to assist design teams in performing what-if analysis and driving the IP exploration process.

“IP Talks! is a fantastic service for semiconductor designers,” said Lisa Tafoya, vice president of Global Research for the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA). “It provides a unique opportunity to learn and ask questions about developments in IP that can help ensure the IP industry meets the ambitious quality and time-to-market demands of the semiconductor community.”
