SoCIP 2012 Conference Addressed Next Generation SoC Challenges

Shanghai, China - July 23, 2012 - S2C Inc., the organizer of the SoCIP show, announced that the SoCIP 2012 show held in Shanghai and Beijing was a success, with over 300 qualified attendees. The conference addressed many new design and verification challenges arising from building the next generation SoC such as for mobile computing, consumer electronics and communication systems. A series of seminar sessions were presented throughout the day by SpringSoft, Tensilica, Algotochip, CAST, Cosmic, Mindtree, IP Goal and S2C. Conference attendee also had opportunities to discuss challenges and solutions face-to-face with experts from the participating EDA and IP suppliers.

Toshio Nakama, CEO of S2C said, “SoCIP conference’s mission is to provide the latest SoC IP and design technology updates in a friendly and fun environment. We are delighted from both the attendee’s feedbacks as well as the sponsors’”. According to the statistics, over 75% of the visitors are engaged in engineering research, development and design and 19% in sales, marketing and management of ASIC/SoC products. 53% of attendees were involved with consumer electronics, 19% with communication electronics, and the rest with industrial electronics, medical technology, auto electronics, computer/information technology, aviation technology, military industry, research institutes and universities. An impressive 99% of the audience mentioned that they liked the conference and were satisfied with the content of the presentations.

Under the theme “Partnering for SoC Success”, the exhibition stressed the importance of cooperation between SoC designers, silicon IP suppliers and EDA tool suppliers to build the best SoC products. Many IP suppliers have joined hands with S2C to deliver Prototype Ready™ IP on S2C’s rapid FPGA-based SoC/ASIC platforms. These pre-engineered solutions help SoC designers to establish SoC prototypes rapidly and reduce the time required for SoC development.

SoCIP2012 Roadshow Seminars

This year, the half day seminars will be held in October in the following 4 cities in China: Tianjin, Xi’An, ChengDu and Shenzhen. Details will be announced on as soon as the schedules are finalized.

About S2C

Founded and headquartered in San Jose, California, S2C has been successfully delivering rapid SoC prototyping solutions since 2003. S2C provides:

  • Rapid FPGA-based SoC prototyping hardware and automation software
  • Prototype Ready™ IP, Platforms, and Accessories
  • System-level design verification and acceleration

S2C's value is our singular focus on SoC/ASIC development. Our highly qualified engineering team and customer-focused sales force understands our customers’ SoC development needs. S2C’s unique FPGA-based solution, using our patented TAI IP technology, enables designers to quickly assemble FPGA-based SoC prototypes on S2C FPGA boards. This gives customers an early start on software development, typically the long pole item in development schedules. Combining rapid prototyping methodologies with a comprehensive portfolio of Prototype Ready IP and advanced verification and acceleration solutions, S2C solutions greatly reduces the SoC design cycle.

In addition to the headquarters in San Jose, CA, S2C currently has 4 direct offices located in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen China and HsinChu, Taiwan. S2C is also the organizer of the annual SoCIP conference and exhibition in China, which brings together SoC designers from the Asia-Pacific region with international silicon IP and SoC solution vendors.
