OK, DAC Monday is here. There are a couple of events to watch today from an system design perspective. First, it looks like Gary Smith will kick things off at 9:30 at the Pavilion with the “Trends and What’s Hot at DAC” presentation. I’ll try to swing by there.
From the Synopsys side we are running a luncheon on System Prototyping at 11:30 in the SF Marriott in the Yerba Buena Salons 4-6.
Showcasing Embedded Software for verification we will demonstrate at 1pm in our demo suite at the Synopsys Booth 1120 how software driven verification improves your overall productivity, shaving months off your product schedules.
The North American SystemC User Group starts at 1pm also in the San Francisco Marriott in Salon 10, Lower B-2 Level. Especially interesting there will be a “Townhall Meeting” at 4pm during which users can give immediate live feedback to questions on the different directions SystemC could take.
Finally, the System-Level Catalyst partners will showcase and present today at the Standards Booth (# 1016):
|10:30am||JEDA: “Troubleshooting TLM2.0 Models”, Andrea Kroll, VP Marketing and Business Development|
|11:30am||CEBAtech: “Reach New Levels of Virtual Prototyping with CebaTech IP Cores”, Joe Rash, CebaTech IP Cores|
|4:00pm||Imperas: “Fast OVP Processor Models for TLM-2.0-Based Virtual Platforms”, Simon Davidmann, CEO and Founder, Imperas|
And for the last time – big promise, “Indianer Ehrenwort” as we say in Germany – there are about 14 ours left to vote for me in the EDA’s Next Top Blogger contest. What’s in it for you? I promise if you vote for my Blog that I will stop bugging … 🙂
See you on the show floor!
