Arasan Chip Systems to Deliver a Keynote at Design & Reuse’s IP-SoC Day Seminar in Santa Cla

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Arasan Chip Systems, Inc. ("Arasan"), a leading provider of Total Semiconductor IP Solutions, announced that it is participating in the IP – SoC Day World Tour event organized by Design & Reuse (D&R), Grenoble, France. This first-of-a-kind, unique event brings together leading Semiconductor IP providers with industry specialists and key members of the design community who are focused on maximizing IP integration with minimal effort in complex SoC designs.

The World-wide tour will be kicked off with the first event to be held on March 23-24, 2010 at the Hilton, Santa Clara, California, where Ram Gopalan, Senior Director of Corporate Marketing at Arasan, is presenting a keynote talk, "Designing with IP in the 21st century – Think Total!" Arasan Chip Systems is also moderating a panel discussion on the "Role of Software and System Tools in IP integration" at this event. This panel will address the need for software, hardware platforms and system tools in integrating complex IP into SoCs.

Preparing to deliver the talk, Ram Gopalan commented, "The increasing complexity of SoC designs has translated into a growing need for additional components that are necessary to successfully integrate an IP. Arasan has responded to this challenge by providing a consultative approach starting with IP selection and optimization, combined with vIP, software and hardware platforms as part of its Total IP Solutions offering to mitigate the risks and simplify the process of IP integration into SoCs."

"This forum addresses the growing complexity and sophistication of the Semiconductor IP ecosystem," commented Gabriele Saucier, Chairperson and CEO of Design & Reuse and organizer of IP-SoC Days. "Sponsoring companies such as Arasan will be presenting their perspective on industry evolution and later showcase their portfolio to interested customers, all in one venue."

The event consisting of keynote talks, panel discussions, product presentations and pre-arranged customer meetings, provides an innovative approach for participants to showcase their latest products and for customers to interact with these providers versus the traditional approaches of conferences with exhibits. In addition to Santa Clara, the IP-SoC Days are scheduled to be conducted in Tel-Aviv (Israel), Bangalore (India), Tokyo (Japan), Shanghai (China) and will conclude with the annual conference in Grenoble (France).

Arasan will be participating in multiple venues, presenting its product portfolio in addition to hosting panels and delivering keynote talks. Arasan provides all of the supporting collateral to enable the rapid integration of interface IP into SoCs, chipsets and application processors.
