Silicon is rarely delivered on schedule, and this challenge is near and dear to all the hearts in the industry. Open-Silicon has a goal of getting their chips in on time 90% of the time so Naveed Sherwani has spent a lot of time discovering what causes the delays. He defines what “on time” really means, helps you to examine how to set a realistic schedule, and shares how to achieve it. Learn how Naveed has figured out what the delays are in the scheduling process, why they happen, and what the team at Open-Silicon does to monitor, implement and carry out a successful schedule. Naveed also discusses how to overcome verification challenges that affect the silicon schedule and the unwillingness of the industry to change the design process.
