Join Actel and Avnet Memec at the System-on-Chip: Designing Next Generation SoCs Virtual Conference

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Learn how to make designing SoCs easier from Actel and Avnet Memec at the System-on-Chip: Designing Next Generation SoCs virtual conference on Wednesday, September 16, 2009. Through presentations and webinars, Actel and distribution partner Avnet Memec will demonstrate how FPGAs provide a compelling design alternative compared to costly ASIC development.

The conference will explore the challenges faced by developers of ASIC- and FPGA-based SoCs, including an in-depth look at the state of chip design economics, the quest for plug-and-play intellectual property (IP) the state of the verification bottleneck, and the need for better integration between analog and digital design flows.

Additional conference involvement:

Panel Session: Integrating Analog and Digital IP onto an SoC

Time: 3:30- 4:30 pm EDT

Moderator: Clive (Max) Maxfield, Vice President, TechBites Interactive

Actel's Jim Davis, vice president, software and systems engineering, will participate and discuss how ASIC- and FPGA-based SoC design flows differ, various analog/digital simulators and how effectively they communicate with each other, how designers can take full advantage of available tools for the intricately specific applications they are designing and other design flow integration issues.

Scheduled Chat: Mixed-Signal Embedded System Design Challenges

Time: 1:30 - 2:00 pm EDT

Moderator: Venkatesh Narayan, Director of Software & Systems Engineering, Actel
