Mipi Alliance is a global, collaborative organization comprised of companies that span the mobile ecosystem and are committed to defining and promoting interface specifications for mobile devices.

As technology innovation marches forward, new kinds of devices, media formats, and large inexpensive storage are converging. They require significantly more bus bandwidth to maintain the interactive experience users have come to expect. In addition, user applications demand a higher performance connection between the PC and these increasingly sophisticated peripherals. USB 3.0 addresses this need by adding an even higher transfer rate to match these new usage and devices.

To establish and proliferate Advanced Switching as the communications, storage, server and embedded system industries fabric and switched interconnect standard. The ASI-SIG strives to provide the highest quality technical and marketing support to enable the marketplace to create unique and interoperable sets of building blocks for communication, storage, server and embedded platforms

The PCI-SIG provides a forum for its 800+ member companies who develop differentiated, interoperable products based on its specifications.
These are exciting times for the PCI development community. With the release of three new specifications, PCI Express™, PCI- X 2.0 and PCI 2.3, the I/O environment as we know it will be radically changed

Membership in the Intel Developer Network for PCI Express Architecture provides your company with technical data, marketing support and industry connections needed to accelerate the innovation and marketing of your PCI Express-based solutions.

RapidIO Trade Association delivers parallel and serial interconnect specifications Serial RapidIO extends the capability of the RapidIO interconnect technology by offering a fully serial, link protocol for those applications that require a memory-mapped protocol but with absolute minimal signal pins. Further, Serial RapidIO allows longer transmission distances using AC-coupled differential current mode signaling

The HyperTransport Technology Consortium is a membership-based non-profit organization in charge of managing and promoting HyperTransport Technology. It has successfully managed the swift transition of HyperTransport technology from a proprietary technology to a widely adopted and royalty-free industry standard I/O technology. HyperTransport technology is now deployed in high performance personal computers, mobile computers, servers, network equipment, communication systems and embedded products.

The VSI Alliance was formed in September 1996 with the goal of establishing a unifying vision for the system-chip industry by developing the technical standards required to enable the most critical component of the vision: the mix and match of Virtual Components (IP) from multiple sources. VSIA more recently took on the task of identifying and providing solutions to the business barriers to the adoption of standards

OCP International Partnership (OCP-IP) is a non-profit semiconductor industry consortium formed to administer the support, promotion and enhancement of the Open Core Protocol (OCP) specification. OCP is the only fully supported, openly licensed, complete interface socket for intellectual property (IP) cores. OCP addresses design, verification and testing issues common to IP core reuse in "plug-and-play" system-on-chip (SOC) products. Additional information is available at

A part of the University of New Hampshire's Research Computing Center, the InterOperability Laboratory (IOL) has the dual mission to foster interoperability within the data communications industry and to provide students with a detailed education in data communications technologies. These two mission goals have been combined in a unique partnership between academia and industry where the first goal is actually the mechanism for achieving the second goal, while the second goal fulfills the first. By bringing together parties working on standard technologies the IOL helps to improve the state of interoperability within the industry.

To advance global prosperity by fostering technological innovation, enabling members' careers and promoting community worldwide. The IEEE promotes the engineering process of creating, developing, integrating, sharing, and applying knowledge about electro and information technologies and sciences for the benefit of humanity and the profession.

The Fabless Semiconductor Association (FSA) is an industry organization established in 1994 to achieve a more optimal balance between wafer supply and demand. Today, our mission has expanded to be the global voice of for fabless and hybrid semiconductor companies and their supply chain partners. Our success can be measured in the dramatic evolution of the attitude toward fabless - from criticized, to respected, and to preferred.

PICMG (PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group) is a consortium of over 600 companies who collaboratively develop open specifications for high performance telecommunications and industrial computing applications. The members of the consortium have a long history of developing leading edge products for these industries. PICMG specifications include CompactPCI® for Eurocard, rackmount applications and PCI/ISA for passive backplane, standard format cards.

The world's largest directory of Silicon IP (Intellectual Property) and SoC Design Platforms from more than 350 vendors. The IPs from GDA Technologies are listed here.

SIPAC IP Trading System is for trading and managing IPs (Intellectual Properties). It provides an IP transaction and management service to IP Seller and Buyer. IP Seller can register IPs at SIPAC IP Trading System and update registered IP information through the Internet. IP Buyer can search and purchase IPs registered at SIPAC IP Trading System conveniently through the Internet.

All the News on IP, Tools, Services & SoC.

The Arapahoe Work Group will deliver a draft 1.0 specification to the PCI-SIG in the first quarter of 2002, with final specification approval anticipated around mid-2002. Upon completion of the draft 1.0 specification by the Arapahoe Work Group, it will be transferred to the PCI-SIG members for final review, and then released to the industry at large. Products based on third-generation I/O architecture are expected to begin emerging in the marketplace in the second half of 2003

The RapidChip® Platform ASIC Partner Program is a cooperative effort between LSI Logic and third-party providers of intellectual property (IP), design services and EDA tools. LSI Logic and its partners will provide you with best-in-class, ready-to-use and verified products and services to reduce time-to-revenue, minimize design risk and lower costs for its RapidChip Platform ASIC customers. GDA Technologies, Inc.., one of the leading Silicon IP supplier, joined the program recently.
