Suported and licensed the Open Core Protocol


OCP-IP delivered the first fully supported, openly licensed core-centric protocol that enabled system-level integration.
Founded in December 2001 to promote and support the Open Core Protocol (OCP) as the complete socket standard that ensures rapid creation and integration of interoperable virtual components. The OCP facilitates IP core reusability, reduces design time and risk, and reduces manufacturing costs for SoC designs.

VSIA endorsed the OCP socket in 2001, and OCP-IP is an Adoption Group of the VSI Alliance.

In 2003 OCP-IP received stewardship of the previously developed VSIA Bus Attributes Specification and VCI Bus Interface Standard.

OCP uses the interface concept of SoC sockets. The goal was that the SoC designer would then be able to concentrate on the system-level capabilities and interconnect.

In 2013, OCP transferred all of its assets to Accellera.
