Los Gatos, California–The Virtual Socket Interface Alliance (VSIA), an international organization that includes representatives from all segments of the SOC industry, today published ‘VSIA Adoption and Use.’ Twenty-four system houses, semiconductor vendors, electronic design automation (EDA), and intellectual property (IP) companies describe their use of VSIA standards and specifications in this document.
“The adoption of VSIA standards and specifications is rapidly picking up steam,” says Tim O’Donnell, VSIA president and ARM Inc. president. “Developed by some of the best engineering talent in the industry, these standards can help jump-start the design and use of IP for systems-on-chip. Additionally, these standards and specifications provide a solid first step toward addressing the bigger issues of system-level design.”
Use of VSIA documents are described by Alcatel; Aristo Technology, Inc.; ARM; Cadence Design Systems, Inc.; Fujitsu Ltd.; Hewlett Packard; Infineon Technologies AG; Intel Corp.; inSilicon Corp.; LogicVision; LSI Logic Corp.; Mentor Graphics Corp.; Motorola’s Semiconductor Products Sector; Nokia; Oki Electric Industry Co.; Palmchip Corp.; Philips Semiconductor; Schlumberger Semiconductor Solutions; sci-worx GmbH; STMicroelectronics; Synopsys, Inc.; United Microelectronics Corp., Virtual Component Exchange; and Xentec, Inc.
