This week (February 25th 2013) is a busy one for system development and the Cadence System Development Suite in particular. For mobility, the place to be is Barcelona -- the Mobile World Congress will show the latest in everything mobile and connected. For Embedded Systems development the place to be is Nuremberg, Germany, where Embedded World opens its doors as one of the biggest events in the world for embedded developments in both software and hardware. In San Jose, California, DVCon will be the place to be for everything related to verification, including hardware/software verification in the context of each other.
Personally I will be in Nuremberg. It seems like I drew the short straw considering that it is predicted to be 39 degrees F there on Tuesday, compared to 53 degrees F in Barcelana and 64 degrees F in San Jose. Still, I'll agree with Alan Tringham of ARM that Nuremberg was the right choice. In his Blog post he points out that the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as Embedded Software Development will be two key themes. And I had already previously pointed to same theme in an article on the IoT for Electronics Weekly.
What made this year fun was that the System Development Suite demo preparations for Embedded World and DVCon could leverage each other -- a clear sign that system-level design and verification are tightly interrelated. So what are we showing?
At Embedded World automotive is one of the key target application domains we are covering. From an electronics perspective, four key themes are in focus, as shown in the graph above:
Given that the distinction between application domains become more and more blurry, it was easy for our demo teams to leverage of each other. A summary of demos is shown in the graphic below.
The key themes from a tool perspective are links to implementation and links to the environment. The latter occurs with analog-mixed signal simulation and connections from Palladium XP emulation and RPP FPGA based prototyping via SpeedBridges, as well smarter combinations of the different engines, such as the combination of virtual platforms with accelerated or simulated RTL.
We look forward to seeing you in Nuremberg at Embedded World or San Jose at DVCon. If you are in Nuremberg, find me at the Cadence booth or the ECSI workshop "Embedded Software Development on Virtual Platforms - Are We Ready For Industrial Deployment?" at which I will present on Tuesday at 16:30 together with Methods2Business on development since DAC last year. See you there!
