ORSoC, representing OpenCores, were invited to the “Electronics For You”-expo (EFY-expo) as Key-Note speaker, to present our view on open-source hardware development. We did a presentation that covered the OpenCores ecosystem and why we strongly believe that “Open Source hardware IP development is the only efficient method going forward”. It was truly a great exhibition with allot of visitors and exhibitors, and there was a strong feeling of innovation talking with engineers and exhibitors and we were impressed by their ideas/knowledge and motivation. We encourage all OpenCores users to visit EFY Expo next year, you will not regret it!

The EFY Group
Over the last 42 years, the EFY group has become synonymous with cutting-edge technology. Today, this renowned media group is spread across 8 locations catering to the intellectual needs of a diverse readership across India and abroad.
Starting with its flagship publication Electronics For You, South Asia’a most popular electronics magazine, the group now offers a bouquet of specialized publications to answer the needs of a technology-hungry nation. The Electronics For You magazine, symbolizing the company’s vision, is the source of enlightenment for an elite electronics fraternity, in India and abroad. Surprisingly, the appeal of the subsequent publications – Linux For You, BenefIT, Facts for You and Electronics Bazaar, spilled much beyond the targeted audience – penetrating non-technical readership with rich content and easy-on-the-eye design.
The group also publishes directories and books and is behind several leading technological events. Recently, it also launched web-portals, including Electronicsforu.com, EFYTimes.com, BPOTimes.com and linuxforu.com, which have become leaders in their respective categories.
The EFY Group has also been producing some elite events, some of which include: EFY Awards, EFY Summit, Open Source India (aka LinuxAsia), and EduTech
