BANGALORE, USA:, the world’s largest online IP repository, and Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp., China’s largest and most advanced semiconductor foundry, announced the launch of a new intellectual property (IP) portal that aggregates SMIC process-compatible third-party IP cores.

The SMIC portal contains a growing list of over 500 pieces of IP from more than 20 IP vendors, including Synopsys, Kilopass, Dolphin Integration, VeriSilicon and others – all designed for fabrication in SMIC processes ranging from 40/45 nanometer (nm) to 65/55 nm and 0.25 micron. The site enables both IP providers and integrators to easily leverage the SMIC IP ecosystem.

“This new portal highlights our ongoing effort to expand the SMIC IP ecosystem,” said Steven Chen, senior director, Product Marketing of SMIC. “Deploying the IP offered by SMIC through an intuitive portal allows our customers to work more efficiently and productively toward improving silicon quality and time-to-market.
