Atrenta has joined as new member of 'Constellations initiative' formed by IPextreme to bring together like-minded companies in the global semiconductor IP ecosystem domain.
"Finding quality third-party IP is a major challenge for system-on-chip designers. The Constellations program is a powerful example of what teamwork in the supply chain can accomplish to address this challenge," said Mike Gianfagna, vice president of corporate marketing at Atrenta. “We look forward to working with IPextreme and the rest of the Constellations membership to make the SpyGlass platform part of the Constellations initiative.”
Ipextreme says Constellations is a collective of independent IP companies collaborating at both the marketing and engineering levels. Companies participating in Constellations offer complementary products; membership is open only to non-competing companies to encourage teamwork. Within Constellations, companies work together and share resources to promote mutual success.
Products and services offered by member companies are featured on IPextreme’s Xena IP management system. Each member is given a private area on the Xena cloud with full access to all capabilities of Xena, including: cataloging, product management, and customer support. Xena also provides a convenient method for member companies and their customers to recommend IP products from other member companies to colleagues and other customers. Visitors may go to https://xena.ip-extreme.com to view the available products from each of the member companies.
Examples of the type of collaboration can be seen in videos available on IPextreme’s “IP WATCH” video channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/watchipextreme.
“We have been working with the Atrenta team and SpyGlass for years and are continually impressed with their technological leadership in this important area of IP quality,” said Warren Savage, President & CEO of IPextreme. “With the addition of Atrenta to Constellations, we now bring together not only the best-of-breed IP companies, but also critical ecosystem partners that are committed to collaborations that push the industry forward to new levels of quality standards that benefit both the buyers and suppliers of semiconductor IP.”
