Stocks in this article: SMI

SAN JOSE, Calif. and SHANGHAI, Nov. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- ChipEstimate.com, the world's largest online IP repository, and Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation ("SMIC"; NYSE: SMI; SEHK: 0981.HK), China's largest and most advanced semiconductor foundry, today 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 ChipEstimate.com portal highlights our ongoing effort to expand the SMIC IP ecosystem," said Steven Chen, Senior Director of 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. Our work with ChipEstimate.com clearly demonstrates our ongoing commitment to provide value-added service, helping SMIC's customers select best-in-class IP and enabling quick and easy design decisions and successful IP integration."

"Our dedicated SMIC portal brings IP vendors and integrators that much closer," said Sean O'Kane, director of ChipEstimate.com. "Together, we enable IP integrators to streamline their selection process and give IP vendors a targeted forum for evangelizing their solutions."

The site is live, and immediately available at www.ChipEstimate.com/smic. Users can also benefit from the site's link to the Cadence InCyte Chip Estimator tool, which enables architectural exploration of IP targeted for SMIC processes.
