Atrenta Inc., a leading provider of SoC Realization solutions for the semiconductor and electronic systems industries, announced that 10 intellectual property (IP) providers including Digital Media Professionals Inc. have qualified their soft IP for inclusion in the TSMC9000 IP library using Atrenta IP Handoff Package.
They quoted comment of Tatsuo Yamamoto, President & CEO, Digital Media Professionals Inc.;
“In support of our advanced graphics IP technology based on industry-standard OpenGL ES and DMP’s proprietary Maestro extension, we are able to leverage excellent semiconductor process technology from TSMC and comprehensive assessment metrics from Atrenta. With a wide-range of leading-edge technologies and eco-system support, DMP will provide highly optimized and validated graphics IPs for embedded markets.”
DMP announced a two day getting start GLSL Programming training course. The
OpenGL ES roadmap has been tailored to the diverse needs of the embedded
industry and contains two tracks with “1.X” and “2.X” specification roadmaps that will evolve in parallel. The 1.X roadmap will continue to be developed for new-generation fixed function 3D accelerators while the 2.X roadmap will enable emerging programmable 3D pipelines.This course introduce the world of programmable pipeline by explaining basic topics of the GLSL(OpenGL Shading Language) which is a core feature of OpenGL ES 2.x and OpenGL 2.x.
(* This course is held in Japanese )
DMP’s "PICA" 3D graphics IP core won the Excellent IP Prize which is the best prize of 9th LSI IP Dsign Award. The LSI Design Award Committee* evaluated not only high-speed and the high-quality drawing performance of PICA but also practicality, and reliability of PICA as hardware IP product.

DMP announced one day of Advanced OpenGL ES Programming Training in Tokyo. This
course demonstrates the more sophisticated techniques possible using the OpenGL
ES 1.1. By explaining the techniques required to generate images of greater
realism, the course provides deeper insights into OpenGL ES functionality. Also,
this course refer to performance aspects of OpenGL ES application and basic
concept of OpenGL ES 2.x. Participants must have programming knowledge
(especially C), a good grasp of computer graphics concepts as well as a
familiarity with the basic topics of the OpenGL ES 1.1.
( *This course is held in Japanese.)
Visit us at SIGGRAPH 2006, Boston Convention Center, Booth #409 to see the PICA Graphics IP Core for embedded systems. DMP will demonstrate its MAESTRO-2G Technology that enables high-quality and high-performance visual effects for embedded devices.
