Deliver Your News to the World Announces New IP Partners


20,000 Registered Users, Leading IP Portal Offers a Broad Catalog of IP from More Than 200 Companies

SAN JOSE, Calif., announced today that more than a dozen IP companies recently have joined or upgraded their memberships to the chip planning and IP portal.

New members joining at the Prime partner level are Cypress Semiconductor, provider of high-performance mixed-signal, programmable solutions; eMemory, provider of logic-compatible embedded non-volatile memory (NVM) IP; and nSys, which offers a large portfolio of verification IP used to accelerate design schedules of customers developing ASICs and FPGAs. Twelve additional companies are being added at the Choice partner level.

“We are pleased to have these great companies join the IP partner community,” said Sean O’Kane, marketing director, Chip Planning Solutions. “They join an ever-expanding group of IP vendors who have teamed up with to address the universal need of design teams to simplify and accelerate the process of planning their next successful chip project. helps bring focus to our IP partner products and services, allowing them greater visibility for their IP offerings. This newly added IP enhances the options SoC design teams can consider when seeking IP for a broad set of applications.”
