Specman/e users in India were very excited to see the first two ClubT events hosted in Noida and Bengaluru, India on May 10th and May 13th respectively. Overall, there were nearly 125 Specman/e users who attended these two "highly interactive and technology rich" ClubTs.
Customers like TI, Samsung and others presented technical articles on how they've used Specman/e in their advanced verification environments. These papers naturally led to very interactive discussions among users, as well as the R&D and Marketing teams staffing the events. It was really great to see such an interactive dialog among all concerned.
Several customers also presented how they've used Specman/e in their advanced verification environments to address their most complex verification challenges. For example, Harsh Setia from Texas Instruments presented a highly interactive presentation on Intelligent Stimulus Driver for Cache Verification. The presentation highlighted creation of an intelligent stimuli driver using e that helped reduce the verification cycle-time of an extremely complex next generation unified cache by 30%. Here are some specific highlights:
Another presentation from Samsung was also widely appreciated by the audience. Samsung presented how Specman/e was use to address the "Challenges in verifying complicated SoC IP's". Highlights:
Cadence R&D and Marketing also presented product roadmaps as well as new features and functionalities in the current product release. Several positive quotes were received by customers like the one from Balaji Veenu from Wipro. He came over and casually said "Specman/e is an awesome tool, I love it." He also added "it's great to see all these Specman users in India in the same room interacting with each other."
Overall, it was a great event in India and there's more to come in 2010. There was no question in anyone's mind after the session about the future of e. They all were very excited to hear about all the investment that Cadence is pouring into Specman/e and were looking forward to new "performance related" enhancements in the 2010 release....hint, hint..
