“I have been impressed not only by my own evaluation of Semifore’s offering but by customer response,” McKenna observed. “Semifore has identified a much more powerful approach to keeping register specification in sync across hardware, software, and documentation teams collaborating on SOC designs. When you combine that with their commitment to current and emerging standards you have a solution that companies can embrace for higher productivity and fewer errors without fear of becoming stranded in a proprietary format.”
