The deadline to submit a paper for the Asia Symposium on Quality Electronic Design (ASQED) is April 23. ASQED accepts and promotes papers related to circuit and system design (digital, analog, RF, and mixed-signal), semiconductor manufacturing, advanced IC packaging, test, Electronic Design Automation (EDA), as well as emerging semiconductor nano/bio-technologies, and photovoltaic electronics. The conference is produced by the International Society for Quality Electronic Design (ISQED). ASQED will be held in Penang, Malaysia, August 3-4, 2010.
Nangate has released the 45nm Open Cell MegaLibrary. It supports the existing 45nm Open Cell Library that has become a standard for university research programs and in EDA and fabless organizations since it was first released in 2008. The 45nm Open Cell MegaLibrary helps designers explore extra design performance gains before implementing with a foundry specific MegaLibrary on their production process node.
OneSpin Solutions’ 360 MV formal assertion-based verification (ABV) solution has been integrated with Platform Computing’s LSF infrastructure. The customizable integration between 360 MV and Platform LSF enables engineers to adapt job scheduling and resource utilization to their needs. Designers can track named proof tasks using LSF monitoring tools, which report progress directly into the 360 MV graphical environment.
AWR launched version 9.01 of the AWR Design Environment (AWRDE). The latest release of AWRDE features over 100 enhancements that increase productivity. The new features include enhancements to AWR’s APLAC harmonic balance engine and AXIEM 3D planar electromagnetic (EM) simulator.
Synfora is oferring an on-demand webinar that describes the Fundamentals of ESL Synthesis. The webcast will provide RTL designers, systems engineers, and design managers with technical insight into the benefits of high level synthesis, how it operates, and the kinds of transformations that can be made. The online course is presented by Brian Bailey, who is an independent consultant working in the areas of functional verification and ESL. He provides methodology guidance and technical insights to both the EDA industry and the systems industry.
The 22nd electronic design automation (EDA) Interoperability Forum will take place Thursday, November 5th in Santa Clara, California from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm in the Sun Conference Center at Agnews Historic Park. The Forum is open to all who wish to attend at no cost. Lunch and a light breakfast are included.
