IPextreme to Present CoReUse/QCore IP Design Methodology at DesignCon

At DesignCon 2009 in Santa Clara, CA from February 2-5, 2009, IPextreme®, Inc., the company bringing famous IP (intellectual property) to system-on-chip designers worldwide, is giving a CoReUse tutorial; featuring licensable, technology-independent Power Architecture processors in the Power.Org booth; and exhibiting.

“CoReUse/QCore – Industry’s First IP-based Design Methodology and IP Compliance-checking Tool,” will give attendees a good understanding of the CoReUse IP-based design methodology and QCore CoReUse Compliance tool. Developed and used at NXP Semiconductors over the last 10 years, CoReUse represents not only the industry’s leading example of IP reuse at work, but is a living and practical IP-based design methodology that can adapt to changing technologies, standards, and EDA flows and that provides a proven framework for companies to develop and use semiconductor intellectual property. Since maintaining compliance to any methodology is difficult, NXP also developed QCore, a tool that is used for checking an IP’s compliance with the CoReUse standard.

Each attendee will receive one free printed copy of the CoReUse manual.

Track: TF-MP1
Taught by Pierre Thomas, Vice President, Engineering, IPextreme, Inc.
Monday, February 2nd, from 1:30 to 4:30 pm
