Fremont, CA – Sep 24, 2019
11:30 AM – 4:00 PM US/Pacific


Data Center whales are changing the industry. With the unprecedented growth in the data center industry, the semiconductor market is pushing its boundaries. This lunch and learn session provides an overview on how various vertical market segments are driving the key IP growth. With introduction of emerging standards and reduced time to market, verification becomes the center of the problem. Come experience this opportunity to learn about key vertical segments driving the growth of industry along with special focus on PCIe Gen 5 and DDR 5 targeted solutions. We have also invited our partner, Northwest Logic, A Rambus Company to share their perspective and experience in the market.


11:30–12:15 Lunch and check-in
12:15–12:30 Welcome and Overview of the Mentor Verification Platform
12:30–01:15 Evolution of new vertical markets and implication to protocol standards – This session will target the shift in the semiconductor market and how certain standards are emerging in spite of various existing standards.
