!!! לשנה טובה ומתוקה

Dear Colleagues,


Greetings from IPro!  It's time for our quarterly IPRO NEWS.  Starting of course with our best New Year wishes, provided that Rosh Hashana will come before our next IPro News issue.  All members of the IPro Group hope that you had an outstanding תשע"ז, and that תשע"ח will be even better.
 

IPro - onward and forward!

It is now one and a half years that the IPro Group is operating in Israel. I am proud to say that IPro has already 10 Licensee Partners among our very best companies in the country.

No names, you know who you are. Let me just say this:

We are very proud to work with each of you and will always do our very best to keep you happy with your choice of IPro Group solutions - THANK YOU!


Moving forward, it is our intention to continue to expand our service to our Chip Design community by offering additional compelling solutions by the members of the IPro Group. We look forward to engaging with each of you.

As a side note, we have a new web, at our same old address: www.ipro-great-ip.com.  A better design and more functionality. You are welcome to visit us, please let know of any suggestions.


The NetSpeed Technology Day, 2017 

... is coming to us shortly.  We all gather on September 25th, 2017 at the Herods Herzelia for an in-depth update about NetSpeed.  


NetSpeed's CEO, Sundari Mitra, is coming to Israel to meet all of us and address our Chip Design community. Let's extend a warm welcome to Sundari and show her the very best of our Industry!  Hope to see you all with us.

On our program:

  • A CEO Keynote, delivered by Sundari.

  • A glance into NetSpeed's future developments, delivered by NetSpeed's VP of Marketing and Business Development, Anush Mohandass.

  • Hands-on demonstrations of the power of the NetSpeed design approach, conducted by NetSpeed's Europe FAE, Rocco Jonack.

 

It will be a remarkable day and we will be honored to have you as our guest. For full program, lectures' abstracts, visitors' bios and registration, please visit our Tech Day web page: CLICK HERE.


For those of you who don't know yet NetSpeed:  
 

NetSpeed offers a fresh look into a complex SoC's design flow. One in which timing closure is kept in high focus and tight control - from Architecture Definition and all the way to Tapeout. The result is: NO SURPRISES!  You will be able to monitor your design at all times and keep your performance on target and your power under control. This will save you WEEKS AND MONTHS of timing closure effort at a critical time - your tapeout!

Thanks & see you all at the NetSpeed Technology Day!

 

Visitors - Ron Keidar:

 

We will have Inside Secure's Ron Keidar, from the San Diego office, visiting us by the end of this month.  Ron is Inside's Sr. Field Architect and is deeply involved with both Inside Secure's customers and R&D, thus becoming the ideal person to listen to your needs and translate them into Inside Secure's solutions.

Ron's mission is to solve your security problems in simple and innovative ways and to create value and strategic advantage for you company by engaging with Inside Secure. Prior to Inside, Ron was in charge of all IoT security at Qualcomm.

It is the second time that Ron visits us in the past year.  If you would like to arrange a meeting with Ron, just drop me a note.


Highlights:

Here are a few highlights from our Group during the period.  For a full listing of Press Releases and articles, please visit our web.

Performance-IP's MRO momentum

Performance-IP is undergoing a great momentum with respect to its Memory Request Optimizer (MRO) IP block.  The MRO is unique in its sense of non-competition with any existing IP block, as it connects and augments the functionality of your favorite DDR controller, providing intelligent data pre-fetch and thus boosting significantly – and systematically – your performance. On these grounds, there is NO REASON whatsoever why you shouldn't use the MRO, if you are using a DDR memory or any other high-latency memory device.

During this period, Performance-IP has also announced a recurring license by Inomize, thus strengthening its position in the Israeli market as well.

Inside Secure's 400G MACsec IP for Datacenters & Cloud!


With IP solutions for IPsec, MACsec, crypto & hash accelerators, and VaultIP for secure boot and secure assets management, Inside Secure is best equipped to support you on all your on-chip security needs.

Andes reaches the 2 Billion Parts Shipped Milestone!


Earlier in 2017, Andes has reported the cumulative shipments of Andes cores by its customers to be in excess of two billion. In 2016, the company reported 430 million SoCs shipped worldwide containing its CPU IP. The 2016 shipments alone represented over 20 percent of the total SoCs shipped. From 2013 to 2016, the company has enjoyed a 10 fold growth in shipment volume of IP cores in SoC devices.

 

Andes also made its debut in the RISC-V arena during this period, having announced the NX25 core, with more details available soon. Additionally, the Dual Issue Superscalar N15F and D15F cores are going to be widely announced in the next few days - stay tuned!

About the IPro Group Member Companies:


Andes a leading microprocessor IP supplier, devoted to develop and market high-performance AND low-power 32/64-bits processors and associated SoC platforms.  Andes' innovative configurable platform solution allows our customers to construct unique system architectures that provide a competitive advantage due to their high levels of optimization. Andes works closely with their partners to shorten their time-to-market with high-quality designs.
 

Inside Secure is at the heart of security solutions for mobile and connected devices, providing software, silicon IP, tools and know-how needed to protect customers’ transactions, content, applications, and communications. With its deep security expertise and experience, the company delivers IP products that span the entire range of security requirement levels to serve the demanding markets of network security, IoT security, content & application protection, mobile payment & banking.

NetSpeed offers a fresh look into a complex SoC's design flow. One in which timing closure is kept in high focus and tight control - from Architecture Definition and all the way to Tapeout. The result is: NO SURPRISES!  You will be able to monitor your design at all times and keep your performance on target and your power under control. This will save you WEEKS AND MONTHS of timing closure effort at a critical time - your tapeout!

Performance-IP boosts your chip's memory interface by understanding the patterns of its communication to external, high-latency memories and performing intelligent pre-fetches, thus saving unecessary latencies and increasing dramatically memory throughput. As a side effect, it saves precious power in the memory interface by reducing the number of memory transactions which consume a significant amount of power. There is NO REASON why a design that incorporates a DDR memory should not use the Memory Request Optimizer.

That's all folks!

 

Thanks for listening and looking forward to talking to you again in our next IPro News. Feel free to forward this Newsletter to your colleagues. Likewise, feel free to call or write any time - always glad to serve.
