Think Silicon announces IP Partnership programme

Patras, Greece ? February 28th, 2008 ? Think Silicon Ltd, a design services and IP core provider company introduces an IP Partnership programme through the on-line IPGenius parametrization platform. Think Silicon targets captive IP in companies and contractors who have no IP business model and can provide them with additional revenues by commercializing internal IP designs to market.

-- Think Silicon, located in Patras, Greece was founded in 2007 with the aim to provide ESL system level design solutions via web-based IP and system level configuration tools. The company provides fabless semiconductor companies and integrated device manufacturers a solution to immediately obtain cores and subsystems tailored to their needs without spending time and effort customizing them to suit their application.

The IP Partnership programme is aimed towards companies and contractors who have developed cores for internal use, but are unable or unwilling to sell and support their designs in the market. Think Silicon works closely with those companies to allow them to commercialize their designs by utilizing the IPGenius platform API and providing them with live usage status. Furthermore, a clear and transparent business model is provided where IPs are obtained in source code form with simple licensing terms and an online IP shop to facilitate the ordering process.

?We believe there is a lot of core competency in companies and contractors who develop cores for internal use, but these valuable designs never reach the open market. We work closely with them to bring IPs up to quality and configurability standards that are expected in the market.? said Dr. Iakovos Stamoulis, Director of Technology of Think Silicon.

?Think Silicon's solution allowed us to leverage our internal IP to higher level of configurability, generate additional revenues and provided us with a transparent interface towards licensees of our design.? said E. Mariatos, CEO of Diaplous Ltd, a Machine Vision solution provider and an IP Partner of Think Silicon.

Independent contractors who have retained rights to their designs are also welcomed to join the programme and benefit from joint marketing efforts.

"The IP Partnership program made it possible to commercialize advanced research in Galois Field Arithmetic. Chip designers will no longer be constrained by a lack understanding of this esoteric branch of mathematics which is the foundation of commercial coding and cryptography algorithms. The IPGenius generator creates the Galois Field hardware for you" said Rajesh Pathak, an independent contractor.

IPGenius portfolio of IP is extended with a Multichannel DMA Engine Think IP core, a CMOS Camera Sensor Interface, a Galois Field Multiplier and a JTAG TAP Boundary wrapper provided by external companies and contractors.

No engineer could spout garbage like that! I think a warning should go out to non-native English speakers that drivel like this is not something to which one should aspire. It looks like someone has written a paragraph of what they intend to say, found a list of marketing bolleaux buzz-words and inserted them at seemingly appropriate places instead of where ..... cont p.94

You neglected to mention that it is usually directed to a technically incompetent audience. Of course there are many posers in engineering as well.
