The winners from the IPextreme Constellations 2010 conference in Silicon Valley on March 31, 2010 stopped by the IPextreme office in downtown Campbell to claim their price. Zhao Wu of Cisco and Alex Tesler of IP Cores were the two winners.

The IP industry like the rest of the semiconductor ecosystem has been under significant stress in the last year and the worldwide economy has collapsed and now is slowly crawling back to life.

We are seeing increasing very creative business proposals as a result of cash-strapped customers looking for ways to get very valuable IP for the lowest price. I found this very... Continue reading

Simply put, Constellations is a group of IP companies that collaborate with one another by helping those companies find customers who need their IP. By teaming up with each other, the Constellations forms... Continue reading
