Get the Specifications

The New Open Core Protocol (OCP) Specification 3.0 is available. To receive a copy of the specification, non-members must submit contact information and accept the terms of our Research License Agreement (RLA). This process takes a few seconds and can be done online. Once the agreement is received, you will have access to the specification within two business days. 

This Research License Agreement is meant solely for research purposes. If you or your company is interested in Commercial use of the OCP-IP standard, it is necessary that you pursue membership (either paid or free) within OCP-IP which grants you the rights to Commercial usage of the OCP specification. To learn more about how to become a member, please visit our Membership Information Page. 

NoC and Debug Specifications

To access the NoC Benchmarking Specifications, download the NoC RLA.  For the Debug Specifications, download the Debug RLA.  Fill out the agreement and fax it back to OCPIP at 503-644-6708.  

The specifications are then available to you as a non-member at no charge. Once you have submitted your information, you will receive the specifications via e-mail within approximately one business day. 

Please note that OCP-IP will not fulfill an OCP Specification request originating from a "personal" email account (i.e., Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.).  Please contact if you have any questions.

The OCP 2.2 Specification is still available. OCP-IP will continue to fully support previous versions of the OCP Specification with tools and training.
