San Jose, CALIF.–– Sep. 8, 2016 –– C-Sky Microsystems, a leading supplier of 32-bit embedded CPU cores from Hangzhou, China, today became a voting member of the Electronic System Design (ESD) Alliance, an international association of companies providing goods and services throughout the semiconductor design ecosystem.
As the first intellectual property (IP) company from China to join the ESD Alliance, C-Sky intends to become an active member of the Semiconductor IP Working Group, helping develop a common methodology and best practices for IP fingerprinting. Other initiatives of interest to C-Sky include the Multi-Die Working Group and the Market Statistics Service (MSS) as well.
"The ESD Alliance's broadened international reach and expanded focus to include IP is welcome news to C-Sky," notes Xiaolang Yan, C-Sky's chairman. "China's burgeoning semiconductor industry will benefit from an active and engaged organization that supports the entire design ecosystem worldwide. With a deep collaboration with Alibaba on YunOS YoC™ (Yun-on-Chip) in the Internet of Things, our goal is to be a contributing member of the Alliance to further develop international involvement."
"We welcome C-Sky Microsystems into the ESD Alliance and look forward to its participation in our committees," observes Bob Smith, the ESD Alliance's executive director. "The insights that Xiaolang Yan and others at C-Sky have on the rapidly growing semiconductor design ecosystem in China will offer us an invaluable perspective as we continue to grow our membership and expand our charter."
