Biggest Hits and Trends from ARM TechCon

November 6th, 2013 by Bill Jason

The recent ARM® TechCon Conference in Santa Clara was definitely the front-runner of my favorite conferences that I attended this year. Fun, informative and filled with software engineers, physical designers, design verification teams, and hardware engineers – ARM TechCon was the place to be to learn about the latest innovations from the embedded industry. Aldec was there showcasing our HES-DVM™ and HES-7™ platforms, which enable engineers to utilize emulation and FPGA-based prototyping to verify the latest ARM designs.

One of the biggest trends I observed from EDA vendors at TechCon was Emulation with the latest and greatest ARM processors (bigLittle, Cortex, etc.). A major issue designers are facing is OS bootup – so incorporating Virtual Platforms and ARM models with emulation platforms was definitely a hot topic at the Aldec booth.  Also, In-Circuit Emulation (ICE) was gaining recognition for allowing verification teams to utilize real-time interfaces with their emulation platforms. Aldec showcased the HES-7 SoC DB, which utilizes a Xilinx® Zynq™ SoC with dual-core ARM Cortex®-A9 processors, and demod a Linux bootup running a simple Hello World to the user.
