What’s the DVContinuum?
For more than 25 years, DVCon is the premier conference to discuss challenges and achievements for Functional Design and Verification of Electronic Systems and Integrated Circuits. The DVContinuum includes the well-established DVCon United States in March, augmented with DVCon India in September and DVCon Europe in November (Munich, Nov 11 – 12, 2015).
For each region, DVCon provides a well-chosen mixture of technical paper sessions, tutorials, key notes, posters and exhibits. Sponsored by Accellera Systems Initiative, DVCon attendees get access to the latest information on various Accellera Standards and its application for system-level design, modelling and verification (including UVM, SystemC, SystemVerilog, IP-XACT and many more). The topics include system-level virtual prototyping, IP reuse, design automation, mixed-signal design, low power design and verification. Facilitating DVCon not only in the US but also in Asia and Europe allow networking and discussions in a much broader audience and expand DVCon’s value to wider community than those only who have the opportunity to travel to the US.
If you like to share your experience with the DVContinuum, submit your paper: DVCon Europe deadlines are May 11th for your draft paper and June 1st for your Tutorial submission. More info: http://dvcon-europe.org (India: http://dvcon-india.org/ US: http://dvcon.org/ )
The DVContinuum Anno 2015 – a Historic Perspective
As DVCon attendee, you will hear a lot about “shift left” and early verification of complex systems. This is not a new concept at all, even it may look like today. A very epic example for a historic shift left had been called out by John F Kennedy in May 1961: “I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth.” At that time, the required technologies and procedures for a moon landing did not even exist.
