Usage of Tensilica's Trademarks and Logos

Tensilica's Philosophy on Trademarks and Logos

Tensilica's trademarks and logos are Tensilica intellectual property and are important and valuable assets for the corporation. We want to encourage our partners, customers, and university program members who have current licenses with Tensilica to use our trademarks and logos, but they must be used properly. Here are the guidelines for the proper use of Tensilica's trademarks and logos in internal and external communications.

Tensilica's Trademarks

Tensilica, Sea of Processors, and Xtensa are registered trademarks of Tensilica, Inc.

The following terms are trademarks of Tensilica, Inc.: FLIX, OSKit, TurboXim, Vectra, Xenergy, Xplorer, and XPRES.

Usage Guidelines for Tensilica's Trademarks

Use the appropriate trademark symbol upon first occurance in a document. ® is the symbol used after our registered trademarks. ™ is the symbol used after our trademarked names. For example: The Xplorer™ IDE.

Acknowledge Tensilica's ownership of the trademark at the end of the document. For example: Tensilica is a registered trademark of Tensilica, Inc.

Always use the trademark as an adjective, accompanied by a noun. For example: the TurboXim™ simulator. Do not use a trademark as a noun or make it plural or possessive.

Tensilica's Logos

Besides the company logo, Tensilica also has created some product logos. Here are the guidelines for the use of any of Tensilica's logos:

You may not use the Tensilica logo in such a way as to indicate there is a relationship between you and Tensilica that does not exist or to indicate that Tensilica itself provides your goods or services.

Do not alter or deform the shape of the mark. Any of our marks must be used in its entirety and exactly as depicted. Do not stretch the graphic image to distort it.

Do not replace the logotype with a different typeface or attempt to mimic the logotype typeface.

Do not set type near to the mark that could be construed as a corporate slogan or motto.
