Synopsys will hold their Electronic Design Automation (EDA) Interoperability Forum in Santa Clara, California on Thursday, October 21, 2010 from 9:30 am to 4:30pm. As you can guess from the name of the event, Forum focuses on the latest developments in EDA interoperability. The forum is ideal for EDA tool developers, IC design and verification engineers, IP providers and members of the press to discuss the industry-critical topics of interoperability and standards. The EDA Interoperability Forum is free and lunch and a light breakfast are included.
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. The event is recommended for EDA tool developers, IC design engineers, and IP providers to discuss the industry-critical topics of interoperability and standards.
SynaptiCAD’s Gates-on-the-Fly (GOF) Verilog netlist editor and incremental schematic viewer now features schematic back annotation and waveform viewer cross-probing. Using one of SynaptiCAD’s waveform viewers, designers can view waveforms from a simulation (e.g. a VCD file) or a logic analyzer and show specific logic states annotated on GOF schematic windows. The schematic and the waveform displays are linked so that engineers can quickly control the simulation time that is displayed from either the schematic or the waveform windows.
The Communications Platforms Trade Association (CP-TA) introduced a self-testing program for the interoperability of xTCA (AdvancedTCA, MicroTCA, AMC) building blocks. Companies can now utilize the interoperability criteria, test procedures, and test tools developed by CP-TA and its members to perform self-testing in order to verify xTCA product interoperability. CP-TA empowers the xTCA ecosystem by providing standardized, proven guidance, and tools to lower integration costs without the added expense of a formal third party certification program.
