Ghislain Kaiser, CEO of Docea Power was my last vendor interview at DAC and one of my favorites because, well, he’s a new face in EDA and he has such a great name. It’s nice to see someone other than the usual suspects.
Docea tools help designers explore low-power architecture, with a focus on hardware/software partitioning and “support of the modern and powerful power management techniques,” whatever that means. It’s a cool technology and addresses a significant issue in engineering efficiency for SoC design.
Unfortunately, Kaiser was not able to give me a hard, bottom line accounting of what the tool does for profitability. It’s still just about the engineer and not the bottom line. Here’s the interview.
