verification is the biggest challenge our industry faces today. It's also the
biggest opportunity for both design teams and EDA vendors.
the productivity and time-to-market improvements that we could yield in the
coming years if everything goes according to plan. (In fact, it has to if we're going to cut the ratio of engineers per million gates-designed four fold in the next eight years as predicted by the ITRS roadmap). Verification remains the
biggest chunk of the design process, but new technologies and methodologies are
conspiring to whittle that down.
the same time, customer needs are getting more complex (see image, right, of major system and SoC development tasks

focused solely on computing and communications-infrastructure devices. There's
a burgeoning new world of consumer electronics and mobile devices that demand
high performance with miserly power consumption in tiny footprints to satisfy
consumer tastes. Think Google Glass. Think the Pebble watch.
then there's also the relentless innovation in larger systems: medical devices,
games platforms, electric vehicles, and electric smart grid utility
infrastructure and display technology.
markets pop-up all the time and the rate of change has never been faster. Take automotive
electronics for example: 15 million cars are produced every year, and in-vehicle
networks have 10-100 end points. More than 100 million tablets ship every year,
and millions more smart phones. And the then there's the Internet of Things: The
total available market for this staggeringly huge machine-to-machine world is
estimated to be in the trillions of units in the coming decade.
give electronics design engineers a sense for the challenges and some solutions that are on the horizon, Cadence is hosting a System-to-Silicon Verification Summit Thursday at its San Jose campus.
this content-packed day-long event, we'll hear about verification challenges
and solutions across the system-to-silicon design spectrum.
the questions we'll explore:
Beginning at 9:30am Thursday, these
and a host of other questions will be fielded by a number of industry experts, including:
