OCP-IP Transfers Assets to Accellera

OCP-IP is pleased to announce the transfer of all practical assets including the current OCP standard and supporting infrastructure to Accellera Systems Initiative.  The OCP standard and infrastructure facilitate reuse of IP blocks used in the design of semiconductor products. The OCP standard complements other IP interoperability standards developed by Accellera.  The combination of these standards under one organization will result in more efficient ways to address the need for interoperability of IP design and will improve reuse, ultimately increasing designer productivity and reducing development costs.

Accellera and OCP-IP have a rich history of working closely together on standards such as SystemC for transaction-level modeling and IP-XACT. The primary motivation of the acquisition is to leverage the OCP standard to work in concert with Accellera standards and support common markets.  Accellera will continue to deploy the OCP 3.0 standard and other Accellera standards for the benefit of its members and the electronics industry. 

A comprehensive list of FAQs about the asset acquisition is available.  Please also visit the new Accellera OCP community for further information.

OCP-IP is dedicated to proliferating a common standard for intellectual property (IP) core interfaces, or sockets, that facilitate "plug and play" System-on-Chip (SoC) design. Making complex SoC design more efficient for the widest audience, the industry strongly supports the Open Core Protocol as the universal complete socket standard, regardless of on chip architecture or which processor cores are featured.
