IPextreme® Takes Semiconductor IP to New Heights at DAC 2015 in San Francisco

IPextreme and Constellations partners band together in IP community and support IP-related programming at the 52nd Design Automation Conference in San Francisco, California

Campbell, Calif. – April 23, 2015 – IPextreme Inc. today announced extensive involvement in the 52nd annual Design Automation Conference (DAC), which will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California from June 7 – 11, 2015. The company and its Constellations™ constituents will participate to an unprecedented level in support of DAC’s continuing initiative to broaden the traditionally EDA-centric conference’s focus to include a greater emphasis on semiconductor intellectual property (IP).

“We look forward to seeing our customers and partners at DAC this year,” said Warren Savage, President and CEO, IPextreme. “With more IP providers and content than ever before, it is a great opportunity for everyone to take a fresh look at DAC. We saw an enthusiastic response to the new IP-centric programming last year and are pleased to continue supporting it.”

“Last year’s new focus on IP at DAC was a tremendous success, and the outlook for this year is equally rosy,” said McKenzie Mortensen, Director of Marketing, IPextreme. “I am honored to be serving again as DAC IP Technical Programming Committee Co-Chair. IP-related submissions have increased dramatically in both volume and quality this year; as a committee, we were truly spoiled for choice when it came to making our selections. Customers rely on both EDA and IP companies to bring their products to market—it is only logical to modify DAC to offer a more well-rounded body of content so that the conference mirrors the landscape of the industry.”
