Accellera-Sponsored Luncheon: "Tackling SoC Integration Challenges"

Event sold out: Registration has closed

As SoC design becomes more widespread, the challenge of integration of design IP created and verified by tools from different suppliers becomes much more of an issue. To tackle these challenges, Accellera working groups have introduced new standardization initiatives such as the Security Annotation for Electronic Design Integration (SA-EDI) 1.0 Standard focused on helping IP providers identify security concerns, and the new Clock Domain Crossing (CDC) Working Group focused on creating a standard for CDC abstraction models to facilitate faster design IP integration. 

The Accellera luncheon will begin with an update from Chair Lu Dai, followed by a panel focused on the efforts of the CDC Working Group to define a standard CDC collateral specification. The standard is aimed at easing SoC integration, enabling teams to integrate IPs verified using various CDC tools without sacrificing quality and design time. The 85 current members of the working group represent 20 companies, including a variety of users and tool vendors. Panel members from the working group will share the key work in progress and look toward deliverables in the coming year. There will be an opportunity for questions from attendees.

The luncheon is free to DAC attendees, but registration is required.
