March 18, 2009 —We are very glad to finally present the new website of OpenCores (
During the last couple of months ORSoC (maintainer of OpenCores) has completely re-designed the OpenCores website – primarily concerning the technology/platform but also including some layout upgrades. The new platform provides much greater flexibility and enables us to continuously add new features.
Marcus Erlandsson, CTO at ORSoC has been responsible for the upgrade work and describes the news:
“The first thing you will notice when visiting the new OpenCores is a new design and logo, but soon you realize that the big improvements are within the services supported by OpenCores, they include:
- The CVS has been replaced with SVN (Subversion is a more modern/better revision control system).
- The Forum has been replaced giving a better overview making it easier to follow the discussions within different “threads”.
- Statistic improvements - we can now present much better statistical information from all the activities within the community. This includes real time statistics of the overall visitors/users experience as well as statistics for all projects available at OpenCores.”
OpenCores is continually growing; more and more companies and engineers visit the site and use the cores as well as discussing design and verification solutions at the forum. Therefore this update was timely and we are very glad to now have a platform which can support all the users and also handle all the future services we will add to the site/community.
The work load to build the new site has been huge, due to the large number of users together with over 600 projects in the repository. Now we have released the new site we will continue to add more functionality that will make it even easier for engineers to develop and distribute open source hardware IP cores on OpenCores.
We hope all users, advertisers and partners will be pleased with the updated version of site and that we soon will be back with more news regarding OpenCores and the services attached to it, says Johan Rilegård CEO at ORSoC.
OpenCores ( www.opencores.org) is the world’s largest site/community for development of hardware IP cores as open source. The site holds all the IPs and supports the users with different forums and information. OpenCores are visited by approx 75.000 unique users every month, viewing almost 1 000 000 pages. The community has+40.000 registered users.
ORSoC is an expert consultancy in FPGA and ASIC design. We have significant experience conducting complex SoC design including FPGA and ASIC development. ORSoC is also the owner and maintainer of OpenCores. ORSoC has unique knowledge and experience of SoC design based on open source IPs.
