OCP-IP Sponsors 2nd International SoC Conference
PORTLAND, ORE. — September 22, 2004 — Open Core Protocol International Partnership (OCP-IP) is co-sponsoring the 2nd International System-on-Chip (SoC) Conference, a highly targeted and focused conference addressing the entire SoC-related chain, including semiconductor vendors, chip foundries, EDA-tool and IP vendors and vendors of CPU and DSP cores.
The 2nd Annual International System-on-Chip (SoC) Conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Silicon Valley Milpitas, November 3rd and 4th. It provides opportunities for design engineers and developers to share their knowledge with an international audience of engineering colleagues. The show brings together leading companies from all over the world and provides opportunity to review the very latest information on SoC-related technologies. The expo keeps developers, engineers, designers, project managers, and executives abreast of recent advances and future demands.
“Our members are industry leaders in building complex SoCs that integrate multiple CPUs, DSPs and other IP through high performance interfaces,” said Ian Mackintosh, president of OCP-IP. “We are pleased to provide our leadership to endorse and promote the 2nd International SoC Conference.”
“With today’s complex SoC designs, the importance of OCP-IP in creating a complete socket standard that ensures rapid creation and integration of interoperable virtual components is becoming more evident.
