It’s all about the software; getting to tapeout is often not the biggest problem anymore! Software has started to dominate development costs and schedules; it has become a product differentiator and, if done right, a competitive advantage. Therefore, it’s critical to get a head-start on software development and hardware/software integration, long before the actual silicon is available. How critical? A recent IBS survey estimates that a 9-12–month delay in system integration and bring-up will result in a revenue loss of $50-100M.

Does System-Level Design and Validation Really Have to be So Hard?

In this seminar, we will provide a fresh perspective on how using the right methodologies and tools, at the right time, will speed up system development and validation by 50% or more.

The FPGA-based prototyping methodology is used widely as a platform for early software development, but has earned the reputation of being difficult to do. You will learn first-hand that it doesn’t have to be difficult at all. The new Cadence Rapid Prototyping Platform can dramatically improve prototyping bring-up time and make FPGA-based prototyping much easier to use and to deploy.
