Texas Instruments Wins OCP-IP Contributor of the Year Award

Open Core Protocol International Partnership (OCP-IP) today announced that Texas Instruments (TI) is the recipient of the coveted annual Outstanding Contributor of the Year Award for 2012. The OCP-IP Governing Steering Committee grants this award each year to a member who has made key contributions to the further advancement of the OCP specification or supporting infrastructure.

The committee specifically acknowledged Prashant Karandikar, lead software engineer of TI for his leadership, commitment and contributions to OCP-IP’s Metadata Working Group (MDWG). Karandikar played a key role in driving the efforts to migrate OCP metadata capture to IP-XACT and advancing extensions supporting configurable interfaces into Accellera IP-XACT.

IEEE 1685 IP-XACT provides for a machine-readable XML structure for IP modules and systems databooks. The XML data documents many different aspects of electronic design elements, enabling designers using IP-XACT tools to automatically create different expressions of a design in a consistent and correlated form. Design and verification engineers benefit from using IP-XACT by the automation of testbench creation and exploration. The OCP Vendor Extensions package created by the MDWG provide a way to describe configurable bus interfaces (like Open Core Protocol) in machine-readable XML structure and as an IEEE standard format.

"We are pleased to be named Contributor of the Year by the OCP-IP," said Zoran Mladenovic, general manager, software development organization, TI. "Working with other leading companies in the OCP-IP community, we are creating standard interfaces that are critical for the next generation of heterogeneous processor, multicore designs while simultaneously delivering the tools needed to help our customers bring products to market more quickly.”

Work on OCP-IP’s Metadata package was executed by members of the OCP-IP Metadata Working Group including: TI, Magillem, Sonics Inc, and Synopsys along with other industry-leading companies.

“The work of the Metadata Working Group is an excellent example of the productive collaboration we achieve between member companies which ensures best-in-class deliverables. We are grateful for the tremendous effort and contributions provided by Prashant and TI, and we thank them for their efforts,” said Ian Mackintosh, president OCP-IP. “We are pleased to present them with the 2012 Outstanding Contributor Award and look forward to their continued partnership in the future.”

The OCP-IP Metadata Package is available to both OCP-IP members and non-members alike. Members may access the OCP Metadata Vendor Extension package by completing the online click-through Commercial Metadata Vendor Extension License. Non-Members may access the package via online click-through research license.
