Design Automation Conference – Embedded SOC Enablement Day

The 47th Design Automation Conference (DAC) will include three sessions focused on embedded processor-based systems-on-chip (SOCs) and their enablement on Thursday, June 17th. The Embedded/SOC Enablement Day is a day-long track of sessions dedicated to bringing industry stakeholders together in one room to shed light on where SOC design is headed. The 47th DAC will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center, in Anaheim, CA, from June 13-18, 2010.

Integrated circuit (IC) design engineers, embedded systems designers, intellectual property (IP) integrators, FPGA designers, design services companies, investors, foundry reps, and the media will hear from market leaders and network with each other. Presenters will focus on the optimization of embedded and application-domain specific operating systems, system architectures for future SOCs, application-specific architectures based on embedded processors, and technical/business decision-making in this domain.

The Embedded SOC Enablement Day Program

  • Enabling Tomorrow’s Complex SOCs
    Moderated by Peggy Aycinena of EDA Confidential, runs from 9:00am until 11:00am. In this session, participants from leading SOC enabling sectors such as embedded processors, semiconductor investments, IP and EDA providers will cover the state-of-the-art in enablement solutions for embedded systems and complex SOCs.

  • Trade-Offs and Choices for Embedded Solutions
    Chaired by Bryon Moyer, Techfocus Media, runs from 2:00pm until 4:00pm. Participants will discuss how moving to new embedded SOC solutions can significantly affect the choices of suppliers.

  • Leveraging a Diverse Design Eco-System for Emerging SOC Development
    Moderated by Lucio Lanza of Lanza Tech Ventures, runs from 4:30pm until 6:00pm. This session will cover the state of the art in enablement solutions for embedded systems and complex SOCs. Such solutions often require tight collaboration between diverse players in this design eco-system.
