Special DAC Session on MPSoC Design Tools Includes Talks by Imperas, Tensilica Representatives; Special Session Intended to Focus on Emerging Challenges Related to MPSoC Design

PALO ALTO, Calif. & SANTA CLARA, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 18, 2006— Representatives of Imperas Inc. and Tensilica,(R) Inc. will participate in a special session titled, "Multi-Processor System-on-Chip (MPSoC) Design Tools," during the 43rd Design Automation Conference (DAC) Wednesday, July 26, from 8:30-10 a.m. at San Francisco's Moscone Center.

Session 16, to be held in Room 306-308, will describe problems associated with the design and verification of SoCs that use multiple processors. It will cover system-level modeling and application partitioning and mapping as it pertains to challenges faced by MPSoC designers. Presenters will show how software design tools can help alleviate some of these problems, what parts of the design flow can be fully automated, and what parts can be assisted by design tools.

Speakers include Grant E. Martin, Tensilica's chief scientist, who will present a paper titled, "Overview of the MPSoC Design Challenge." Peter Flake, chief scientist of Imperas, will describe "System-Level Automation Tools for MPSoC Designs." Professor Ahmed A. Jerraya of TIMA/CNRS will offer a look at "Programming Models and Hardware/Software Interface Abstraction for MPSoC." Pierre Paulin of STMicroelctronics is the session chair.

Imperas will hold select meetings with MPSoC designers and users during DAC in Booth #336. To schedule a meeting, contact Frank Schirrmeister, Imperas' vice president of marketing, at (408) 983-1260 or via email at franks@imperas.com.
