There are multiple techniques such as simulation, emulation, FPGA prototyping, formal verification, post-silicon testing, and so on which gain prominence in different situations and at different… Read More
Mentor has a webinar on Model Driven Development (MDD) for Systems Engineering, presented by Bill Chown. It is actually the first of 15 webinars. This first one is just over 30 minutes long and I assume the others will be too. The webinar focuses on embedded system development, which historically has largely been validated using… Read More
The EDAC Emerging Companies Comittee (would that be the EDACECC?) is organizing a free panel session one evening at DVCon. It is Monday February 27th from 6pm to 8.30pm. I don’t yet have a room but it will be at the DoubleTree Hotel where DVCon is being held.
EDA companies often address hardware/software co-design from a hardware… Read More
