Imagination Technologies Joins Open Core Protocol International Partnership

London, UK: Imagination Technologies, a leader in system-on-chip intellectual property (SoC IP), and Open Core Protocol International Partnership (OCP-IP), the association providing a common standard for intellectual property core interfaces, or sockets, that facilitate “”plug and play”” SoC design, today announce that Imagination Technologies has joined the Open Core Protocol International Partnership.

OCP-IP is a groundbreaking industry association dedicated to making a common standard for IP core interfaces, or sockets, that facilitate ‘plug and play’ SoC design. Imagination Technologies supports the Open Core Protocol with graphics, video and display IP cores from its PowerVR division. As a provider of semiconductor IP for the SoC market, membership in OCP-IP allows Imagination Technologies’ customers to integrate IP into chip products while maintaining short design cycles, lowering design costs and bringing products to market faster.

John Metcalfe, VP PowerVR Business Development, Imagination Technologies says: OCP-IP’s industry standard socket enhances IP core reusability and reduces design time for complex SoCs while also lowering both cost and risk. This can be of major impact in the competitive SoC IP market where design time and cost effective utilization of IP are highly important.

Ian Mackintosh, President, OCP-IP says: “”The support for OCP by the PowerVR IP cores is a recognition of the significance of our standard. We are delighted to have Imagination Technologies, a leader in SoC IP, as a member of OCP-IP.
