When & Where
“Cooperate. Collaborate. Win.”
Constellations is a collective of independent IP companies working together at both the marketing and engineering levels to develop and promote advanced IP solutions. The program offers designers a broad IP portfolio in a central IP catalog. IPextreme initiated Constellations in 2010 and is the driving force behind the collective, serving as program organizer and facilitator.
Companies participating in Constellations offer complementary products, creating a comprehensive portfolio of semiconductor IP from which customers can develop complete SoC solutions. The program is open only to non-competing companies to encourage teamwork and cooperation—member companies work together and share resources to promote mutual success. Constellations member companies currently include: Atrenta Inc.; Certus Semiconductor; IPextreme, Inc.; Sonics, Inc.; and Recore Systems.
Products of Constellations companies are featured on the Constellations Semiconductor IP Center, powered by IPextreme’s Xena™ IP management system. The IP Center enables members to easily catalog, distribute, and support their products. Please visit https://constellations.xena-cloud.com.
