The OCP promotes IP core reusability and reduces design time, design risk, and manufacturing costs for SOC designs. The OCP is focused exclusively on the needs of an IP core ; nothing about the OCP is bus or application specific.

  • Enables IP core creation to be independent of system architecture and application design

  • Describes all intercore communications

  • Optimizes die area by configuring into the OCP only those features needed by the core

  • Uses timing guidelines to assure IP core interoperability:

    Level 2 ” highest performance interface timing

    Level 1 ” conservative timing for effortless core connect

    Level 0 ” protocol without timing specified ( especially useful for verification and simulation tools)
