Canada’s Space Codesign: Calm, Cool and Collected

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

 

Montreal is not a place that normally comes to mind when you think of EDA. Space Codesign Systems, however, is on a fast track to change that in a classically Canadian way – calm, cool, and collected.

When I spoke with General Manager Dr. Gary Dare on a beautiful afternoon in Southern France at SAME Forum in early October, he explained how the company started in Canada, and the road map they have set out for themselves: “We’re an EDA company, an EDA startup, and we are definitely based in Montreal. If you doubt that EDA has a place in Canada, we will soon convince you otherwise.

“Space Codesign comes from the acronym, SystemC Partition of ACE, which was the 2004 research project at the Ecole Polytechnique [University of Montreal] that our technology is based on. In 2008, Professor Guy Bois and various graduate students associated with the project decided to do a spin-out, and in 2010 Space Codesign Systems went into operation.”

He laughed and added, “Our company has nothing to do with space, however. But it has everything to do with hardware/software co-design – doing it simultaneously, rather than the usual way of ESL hardware design followed by software design. The audience we are targeting is the systems architects who are looking at the algorithmic level and need a route to design exploration and implementation. Our tools give them that route.

SAME Forum: Startup Panel showcases promising organizations, ideas

Thursday, October 11th, 2012

 

Once again this year, SAME Forum in Sophia Antipolis demonstrated what it does best: Bring technologists together in a collegial atmosphere to discuss and debate the latest trends in technology. Always a key part of the agenda, this year’s Startup Panel was even better than the 2011 event because it was held in the several hours before cocktails and the conference dinner.

Moderated by Intel’s Steven Klinger from 5:30 to 7:30 pm on October 2nd, six companies had the opportunity to stand up in front of an SRO crowd of over 100 to describe their ideas, vision, and business plans. At the end of the two hours, a panel of judges met to determine which of the six companies would receive the annual Most Promising Startup Award. In the eyes of many, however, just appearing on the panel was reward enough.

Following the two hours of presentations, the Startup company representatives had a chance to sit and talk one-on-one at tables near the cocktails and hors d’oeuvres with those interested in their nascent product offerings. It was an ebullient event full of substantive conversation, start to finish.
