11:45am Panel: "Are SystemC- and TLM-Driven Design Ready to Replace RTL?"

Sponsors: Cadence, Calypto, and Forte

Join Cadence, Calypto, and Forte Design Systems for an informative System-level luncheon at DAC. This event includes a mix of presentations and an informative panel discussion intended to stir up debate on how SystemC and TLM-driven design techniques have evolved to a point where they are mounting a credible challenge to traditional RTL-based design. Hear for yourself from the companies driving this evolution as they describe the productivity gains and real-world challenges they face as they migrate to this new approach.

(Lunch will be provided at this event.)

1:00pm Panel: "Are You Ready for 32nm?"

Sponsors: ARM, Cadence and Common Platform

With 32nm and 28nm setting a new bar for leading edge chip designs, are you ready? Reducing the risk in designing for advanced manufacturing process requires an industry collaboration. ARM, Cadence and Common Platform partners, Chartered, IBM, and Samsung have been working together to develop tools, design flows, and IP capabilities for 32/28nm Common Platform technology. If you are considering designing at the 32/28nm node, join us for an in-depth discussion on enablement of the industry’s first HKMG technology offering. Common Platform partners will describe the 32/38nm High-K Metal Gate process which enables continued technology scaling in the tradition of Moore’s Law. Technologists from ARM and Cadence will detail their results-to-date in integrating advanced design flows and IP on the Common Platform technology.
