Growth of IP Industry Collective Continues as SoC Solutions Joins IPextreme’s Constellations™

New member brings Subsystems, Internet of Things (IoT), Machine to Machine (M2M) devices to the fore

Campbell, Calif. – June 2, 2015 – IPextreme Inc. today welcomed SoC Solutions as the newest member of its Constellations initiative, which brings together like-minded companies to advance the state of the global semiconductor intellectual property (IP) ecosystem. SoC Solutions is headquartered in the Atlanta, Georgia area and boasts a broad offering of pre-configured IP subsystems, proven IP cores, embedded software, and custom platforms.

“IoT and M2M devices are driving the semiconductor IP market at present,” said Jim Bruister, CEO, SoC Solutions. “Our selection of silicon-proven products, coupled with our depth of system and design knowledge, make us a smart choice for chip designers looking to minimize risk and cost while whittling down time to market. We are excited about this closer partnership with IPextreme and the other Constellations companies. I am optimistic that together we will accomplish great things.”  

Warren Savage, President and CEO, IPextreme, stressed the importance of relationships with companies that help customers to address real design challenges in today’s industry: “SoC Solutions’ deep background as system designers is evidence that the IP industry has evolved from just hardware to include software and services. Their expertise in these areas empowers them to customize the solutions they provide to customers, enabling them, in turn, to offer differentiated products for their end customers. With their offerings of IP, software, and design services, SoC Solutions is a great addition to the Constellations community.”

SoC Solutions experts will make daily guest appearances alongside IPextreme and other Constellations member companies in the Constellations IP Community (Booth #3501) at the upcoming 52nd Design Automation Conference (DAC) in San Francisco. The conference takes place at the Moscone Center, June 7 – 11, 2015. Conference attendees are encouraged to seize this opportunity to speak with the SoC Solutions team and the other Constellations members to discover ways to advance their next chip designs.

Constellations member companies currently include: Adapt-IP; Atrenta Inc.; Certus Semiconductor; IPextreme, Inc.; Methods2Business B.V.; SoC Solutions, LLC; Sonics, Inc.; and UltraSoC Technologies Ltd.

Companies participating in Constellations offer complementary products, creating a comprehensive portfolio of semiconductor IP from which customers can develop complete SoC solutions. The program is open only to non-competing companies to encourage teamwork and cooperation—member companies work together, share resources to promote mutual success, and participate in collective events.

Products of Constellations companies are featured in the Constellations Semiconductor IP Center, powered by IPextreme’s Xena™ IP management system. The IP Center enables members to easily catalog, distribute, and support their products. Each member company is given a private area on the Xena cloud with full access to all capabilities of Xena. The IP Center also provides a convenient method for member companies and their customers to recommend IP products from other member companies to colleagues and other customers. Registered guests can browse all available IP and services in the Constellations Semiconductor IP Center for free at https://constellations.xena-cloud.com.
