In this guest blog Markus Winterholer, R&D engineer at Cadence, explains why he's attending the University Booth at the DATE Conference in Grenoble, France March 14-18.
I’m getting ready for
a busy upcoming week with DATE conference in Grenoble, France. Besides organizing a workshop and a panel about embedded system debug and test, presenting Cadence ESL tools at the Europractice
event and helping representing Cadence at GlobalFoundries (booth 1& 2), I’m
squeezing customer visits into my tight schedule. I’m already created a short
list of presentations I will attend at this always worth visiting conference.
Despite a busy day, however, I’m already planning ahead to spend enough time at the
University Booth on the exhibition floor. This is not only because Cadence is a co-sponsor of this
event, which I found out lately, but because it is a great opportunity to
discuss upcoming solutions and to get in contact with the people behind these
Since a visit at DATE has to be
planned ahead, I already know when I will stop by at the University Booth.
This year I picked three topics. First, power estimations and optimizations;
second, methods to shorten time to market for multi-threaded and multi-core
applications; and last but not least, a very interesting high level approach to
combine simulation and formal verification. Starting with the later
presentation titled “Demonstration of a Coverage Driven Verification
Environment for UML Models of Systems-on-Chip” I’m interested in learning
how the authors enhanced simulation with static analysis of UML models and model
Two presentations are promising
solutions if your design complexity increased lately due to the usage of
hundreds of processors, instead of just one as in the good old single core
SoC days. The first one presents “Daedalus” – a system-level flow that does
auto-parallelization of sequential programs as well as system-level simulation
and high level synthesis. The second presentation is from TIMA, in Grenoble, about their solution “VOCIS” -- a simulation model that enables quantitative
comparison of interconnect architectures regarding power, performance and reliability.
Power and energy optimization is an
important topic for Cadence R&D, so hopefully will have time to
chat with Kyushu University to learn how memory access optimizations in
embedded systems can improve power consumption. If I miss the booth of
Open-PEOPLE to learn how their power and energy optimization platform and
estimator is working I can check that later on their home page.
So take the chance to say hello
next week in Grenoble, France and leave a comment if you visited University
Booth at DATE.
