Duolog Technologies, the Collaborative Design Automation[tm] Company, and OCP-IP announce that Duolog will provide its OCP-Conductor Professional transaction analysis tool free of charge to members of OCP-IP. The Tool is an innovative, detailed OCP transaction viewer that enables fine-grained analysis of bus transactions. A complete transaction sequence can be traced from request to response along with a host of related information about the transaction, permitting instant, powerful, high-level OCP transaction analysis and debug.
“Duolog’s OCP toolset offers comprehensive transaction and performance analysis of the Open Core Protocol (OCP) socket,” said Ray Bulger, co-founder and CEO of Duolog Technologies. “OCP forms part of a collaborative methodology that reduces design cycle time, errors and time to market. For OCP-based systems, integration and deterministic transaction analysis are key enablers for getting products to market quickly, with quality. We are happy to provide a complimentary version of OCP Conductor Professional to OCP-IP members so they can harness its powerful capabilities.”
OCP-Conductor forms part of Duolog’s OCP Toolkit, which includes OCP-Tracker, a performance analysis and performance regression tool that graphically analyses user-definable bandwidths and latencies of OCP transactions from single OCP ports to sophisticated bus structures deployed across the SoC. In addition, bandwidth and latency measurements are used in Tracker’s validation regression environment where events throughout the SoC trigger user-defined bandwidth and latency measurements.
“Our members receive free training, support, and tools, allowing them to focus on the challenges of SoC design. Leveraging OCP-IP’s infrastructure eliminates the need to internally design, develop, train and evolve a proprietary standard and accompanying support tools, freeing up critical resources for the real design work,” said Ian Mackintosh President OCP-IP. “Tools such as OCP Conductor enable smoother system integration and transaction-level debug, and we are pleased that Duolog has graciously offered to provide OCP-IP members with this powerful tool as part of our vast infrastructure.”
Members can request copies of OCP Conductor beginning in June 2008 as part of their benefits of membership by visiting the OCP-IP website.
The OCP International Partnership Association, Inc. (OCP-IP), formed in 2001, promotes and supports the Open Core Protocol (OCP) as the complete socket standard ensuring rapid creation and integration of interoperable virtual components. OCP-IP’s Governing Steering Committee participants include: Nokia [NYSE:NOK], Sonics Inc., Synopsys [SNPS], Texas Instruments [NYSE:TXN], and Toshiba Semiconductor Group (including Toshiba America TAEC). OCP-IP is a non-profit corporation delivering the first fully supported, openly licensed, core-centric protocol comprehensively fulfilling system-level integration requirements. The OCP facilitates IP core reusability and reduces design time, risk, and manufacturing costs for SoC designs.
