System-Level Tool Interoperability in the Supply Chain

Posted by Darcy Pierce on October 22nd, 2010

Conversation Central was broadcast in front of a live audience at the 23rd Interoperability forum in Santa Clara, CA today. Our host, Karen Bartleson, had the pleasure of interviewing our knowledgeable guests, Jose Corleto and Will Strauss. Jose Corleto is the Sr. Director of Engineering at Qualcomm’s CDMA Technologies Chipset Division, where he is responsible for wireless chipset architecture definition; system tools and methodologies for architecture exploration, early SW development and HW/SW co-verification; virtual platform development, integration and test. Will Strauss is the Principal Analyst at Forward Concepts and is an internationally-known semiconductor industry analyst and is considered the leading authority on digital signal processing (DSP) market trends. He is also an authority on semiconductor trends in wireless, audio and VoIP markets

The three discussed on stage in a living-room-like setting the wireless market: its explosive growth, collaboration in the supply chain, the components that make up a smart phone, and the need for interoperable models and the tools for designing the chips inside today’s advanced wireless devices. We had a nice turnout for this Forum and the live audience found the discussion engaging.

    As I had asked at the very end of the above conversation with Jose Corleto and Will Strauss at the Interoperability Forum :

    How soon can it be before an Open Forum community such as Linux or some such entity would provide Interoperable Language tools that would operate on both the iPhone as well as Android – ( and for that measure Blackberry or Nokia Smartphones as well ) – so that users do not have to buy separate versions for the same App, when friends or family want to use interactive applications that will allow them to communicate and dynamically interperate between their mobile devices of different makes?

    Comments from the panelists as well as the general community would be enlightening and welcome !

    Java allow developers to write applications that run on more than one platform. However, it has the disadvantage that in certain cases, it may compromise the performance.

    In general, it is not just about the language, it also has to do with the Operating System and the APIs that are supported in different phones.
