New website allows Chinese members to access material in local language
SSIPEX was formed in August 2003 through an initiative of the Shanghai Information Commission & Shanghai Technology Commission and was funded with capital of over RMB 30 million as a not-for-profit organization.
SSIPEX customers are seeking new and unique IP products. The Exchange helps develop IC products faster, better and less expensively, thereby reducing the development cycle.
The Group’s mission is to bring together buyers and sellers of Silicon Intellectual Property (SIP) to help companies maximize their return on R&D investment and deliver IC products to market in timely manner. They also organize and coordinate SIP research & development in China. SSIPEX is positioned to become the headquarters for IP transactions between trading parties as well as helping them complete IP transactions and provide a clear audit trail that protects patent, royalty and other IP-related issues.
SSIPEX believes in the proven power of both technological and transactional standards. As a result the missions of both SSIPEX and OCP-IP are strongly aligned and form a powerful partnership.
"OCP-IP is providing the tools and infrastructure demanded by our rapidly growing base of members.,” said Ian Mackintosh, president OCP-IP. “Local language accessibility drives the globalization of the OCP standard so that both members and visitors can do their jobs efficiently and effectively. We look forward to even deeper collaboration with SSIPEX in the future.”
OCP-IP members receive free training, support, software tools, and documentation, enabling members to focus on the challenges of SoC design. Leveraging OCP-IP’s powerful free infrastructure eliminates the need to design, document, train and evolve a proprietary standard and support tools, thus opening up critical resources for the real design work and providing enormous cost savings.
