IPextreme to Accelerate Power Architecture Adoption by Making Valuable Member IP Widely Available

MONTEREY, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Feb. 27, 2006— IPextreme Inc, a value-added reseller of semiconductor intellectual property (IP), is working with Power.org to accelerate the adoption of the Power Architecture(TM) by making important member IP available. Power.org's mission is to develop, enable and promote the Power Architecture as the preferred open standard hardware development platform for the electronics industry, and IPextreme will assist by enabling key member technology to benefit the broader semiconductor design community.

Today's high-volume System-on-Chip (SOC) devices are created by assembling large pre-existing functional blocks of IP, often from outside the company. Power.org members can complete SOC devices much faster if they can take advantage of high-value, silicon-proven IP that other members have already completed -- but until now there was no easy mechanism for them to do so. IPextreme will upgrade key designs into commercially viable IP, license that IP and most importantly provide the support necessary for its successful integration.

Juan Antonio Carballo, partner in the IBM venture capital group, commented, "I'm excited to have a new VC-backed Power.org member, IPextreme, as their business offering may contribute to accelerate Power-based SOC design. Power is becoming a disruptive play in the semiconductor market with its enormous flexibility ranging from consumer gaming devices to high-end supercomputers, together with its world-class venture capital community participation."

Warren Savage, IPextreme CEO, added, "Power.org counts among its members some of the world's most capable chip design companies and we are pleased to work with them to make those designs available to the semiconductor design community to speed their developments."
