Semiconductor IP platform moves to the cloud
It is based on IPextreme’s existing technology that has been developed and refined over the last seven years in supporting more than 100 customers in more than 20 countries and now takes advantage of the latest technology in cloud computing to provide a complete infrastructure for managing IP with employees and customers.
Xena includes a searchable IP catalogue for companies to organize and categorize their IP according to their own specifications, making it easy for employees and customers to locate IP and ensure that the right IP is used in the right designs that is also linked to lead generation and sales tools such as salesforce.com.
Xena comes in two product offerings: Xena Cloud and Xena Enterprise. In the Xena Cloud model, IPextreme provides a private Xena server for a company. The server is hosted in the cloud with IPextreme handling the administration of the host server and the company buys subscriptions for its Xena users. With Xena Enterprise, companies host Xena on their own internal servers, handle administration of the server, and have unlimited numbers of users.
“Over the years, we have had many requests to license our Xena technology for internal use within large semiconductor companies and today we are showing that we have heard them,” said Warren Savage, president and CEO of IPextreme. “We feel that these two product offerings make Xena available to all companies, large and small, with a business model that works for everyone.”
Subscriptions for Xena Cloud start at $200 per month for each user token which can include several functions in small company.
