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 email@example.com.
