Eureka Technology Embraces FPGA Core Common License Initiative

Los Altos, Calif., (September 11, 2001) -- Eureka Technology, Inc., a Xilinx AllianceCORE 3rd-party IP provider today announces it has joined the Common License Consortium and will make its semiconductor intellectual property available for license under the terms of the SignOnce IP License.

"FPGA customers demand very short time-to-market, which is one of the main reasons why our customers choose Eureka's IP cores," said Simon Lau, President of Eureka Technology. "The SignOnce IP License is an innovative way to simplify the legal and procurement process for these customers. It is an important tool for us and for the industry."

"We welcome the addition of an established IP provider such as Eureka Technology to the Common License Consortium," said Mark Bowlby, AllianceCORE program manager at Xilinx. "Their participation provides further evidence that the industry is ready for a solution to the IP licensing challenge."

All cores from Eureka Technology are now available for license under the terms of the SignOnce IP License. Information on Eureka's products and services can be found on the Eureka web site at and the Xilinx IP center at

About the Common License Consortium

Xilinx and members of its AllianceCORE third-party IP provider program have joined together to form the Common License Consortium. All consortium members have agreed to accept a single set of common IP licensing terms, called the SignOnce IP License, for acquiring FPGA-based IP cores. The result is a first for the IP industry - a single set of licensing terms, giving customers access to IP cores from multiple vendors for use in Xilinx programmable logic.
