  • Keynote: Organizing by Design
    Toggle Abstract

    KEYNOTE Winning products are rarely the result of optimizing only one aspect of a design. Innovators generate success because they find ways to cross organizational and functional boundaries to optimize a product in multiple disciplines. Mature companies try to solve this problem by creating cross-disciplinary teams while start-up companies do it naturally due to lack of enough resources to allow specialization. Meanwhile, products targeted at customers in different disciplines rarely appeal to more than one.

  • Keynote: Integrated Systems Design for Industries in Transition
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION As product complexity has increased, organizations have been under constant pressure to meet their business drivers while bringing competitive products to the market-place. These pressures are compounded by a significant demographic shift in heritage PCB design and engineering. In the western world, new entrants into the PCB design workplace is in decline, this is happening when engineering graduates as a whole are also in decline. Meanwhile, products are becoming more complex where, what was once isolated processes are now very much integrated. To ensure the viability of the next generation of engineering, there is a drive to lower the barriers to perform core engineering and design activities while enabling organizations to take a systems approach in their development strategies. This keynote will cover these trends and introduce Mentor’s view of integrated systems design for an industry in transition by showcasing specific technologies that will enable next generation of PCB development.

  • Questa Verification Platform – Achieving Coverage Closure
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Recent industry surveys show that two-thirds of new design projects fall behind schedule due to verification. In addition, 70% of these designs fail at least once after verification is completed. With over half of these failures attributable to logic and functional errors, it makes sense that coverage closure is consistently identified as one of the most difficult challenge faced by verification teams. During this presentation we’re going to be referring to several technologies that are part of the Questa Verification Platform. In fact, the Questa platform was architected for the express purpose of bringing together advanced technologies to solve the industry’s toughest verification problems, with coverage closure being one of the toughest.
