BEAVERTON, USA: Open Core Protocol International Partnership (OCP-IP) is pleased to announce that Renesas Mobile Corp, has become a sponsor-level member of the organization through its parent company Renesas Electronics Corp.
Sponsor-level membership allows Renesas Mobile and Renesas Electronics, to contribute to OCP enhancements and early access to specifications. Leveraging OCP-IP’s infrastructure eliminates the need to internally design, document, train and evolve a proprietary standard and accompanying support tools, freeing up critical resources for real design work, while providing enormous cost savings.
Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, Renesas Mobile integrates the former Mobile Multimedia Business Unit of Renesas Electronics with the former Wireless Modem Business Unit of Nokia Corporation. The Company focuses on platforms for smartphones, feature phones, car infotainment and embedded connected devices enabling people to stay connected in the Cloud Computing Era.
“Joining OCP-IP allows Renesas Mobile to benefit from the standardization of the SoC backbone infrastructure as this enables rapid reuse in new designs of our core building blocks,” said Shinichi Yoshioka, senior executive VP and COO, Renesas Mobile. “We look forward to bringing our expertise in highly complex SoC design to further the goals of OCP-IP.”
“OCP-IP is dedicated to proliferating a common standard for intellectual property core interfaces that facilitate ‘plug and play’ SoC design,” said Ian Mackintosh, president and chairman of OCP-IP. “Leveraging the existing infrastructure and tools surrounding the OCP specification allows Renesas Mobile to focus on real design work. We welcome them to the organization, and look forward to working with them in the future.”
