DVCon Munich: IP Integration, Automotive, Smart Cities, System Design

October 13th, 2016 by Peggy Aycinena

Next week, DVCon is once again in Europe, October 19-20 in Munich
. A marvelous agenda has been laid out for this year’s 2-day conference, including three keynoters that pretty much sum up the state of things in the industry here in 2016. If you want to know where to apply your resources – both human and material – over the next decade, look no farther than these three talks.

It’s a tiring trip from Silicon Valley to Bavaria, but the quality of these presentations, combined with the rest of the content at DVCon Europe, will make the trip well worth the effort. Hope you’re going.

ARM’s Hobson Bullman will be speaking about the focus on design and verification in ARM’s Technology Services Group.

“As the world leader in semiconductor IP, ARM supplies technology that’s at the heart of billions of new devices manufactured every year.

“In order to make that possible, ARM has enabled an engineering infrastructure and workflow group to support the compute and tooling needs of ARM, called Technology Services Group, which enables and develops best practice and promotes effectiveness, understanding and continuous improvement.

“TSG tools and services are used by ARM engineers across all regions and functions, across software, process and system design, and physical implementation.

“In this Keynote, Hobson will address some of the methodology and infrastructure challenges faced, and solutions delivered by TSG, for delivering IP into a demanding partner base, across a wide variety of markets.”

NXP Semiconductors’ Juergen Weyer will be speaking about the securely connected, self-driving car. Today’s absolute favorite topic at every semiconductor technology conference, it’s hard not to catch the enthusiasm.

“Few industries are as primed for radical change in the years ahead as the worldwide automotive market. Advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) features are increasingly common in entry-level new car models, and today’s high-end vehicles commonly receive over-the-air software updates and feature semi-autonomous driving functionality.

“Meanwhile, Silicon Valley start-ups and established auto OEMs alike are rushing to deliver the first true ‘self-driving’ cars, thereby ushering a new era in transportation based on some of the most profound technical advancements this mature industry has seen since its inception more than 100 years ago.

“The U.S. is taking bold steps towards implementing V2X technologies with a planned mandate and a Smart City Challenge that fosters the rapid introduction of latest mobility innovations.

“Among the most critical technologies driving this revolution towards secure connected mobility and self-driving cars are:

– Highly integrated CMOS-based radar solutions
– Advancements in vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) technologies
– Sensor fusion
– Gigabit Ethernet for real-time transport of massive data sets”

ESD Alliance’s Bob Smith will be speaking about Moore’s Law and the transition from chip-centric design to system-level design.

“The semiconductor design ecosystem is evolving from a chip-centric focus to a system-centric worldview. While SoCs and other complex semiconductor devices remain as critical building blocks, the design emphasis is shifting to system

“Moore’s Law remains a key driver, although there are roadblocks in the path and it is clear that the industry is beginning a transition from integration at the transistor level to integration at the functional (block) level.

“The Electronic System Design Alliance (formerly EDAC) recognizes these major changes and has acknowledged them by upgrading its mission to recognize the breadth of activity across the entire design ecosystem.”


DVCon Europe Sponsors …

It is refreshing to see the sponsors this year include the Big Three – Synopsys, Cadence, and Mentor Graphics – as well as AMIQ.
