India’s Mentor Forum 2012
To continue to innovate and succeed, design engineers need a trusted resource for information and analysis to help them make the correct technology decisions. The Mentor Forum provides this opportunity, bringing together EDA industry experts, the EE design community, and solution providers – to collectively address the hottest issues, trends and products that affect the EDA industry. We’ve packed each day full of exciting activities focused on the latest in cutting-edge design. You won’t want to miss a thing!
Organizing by Design
Keynote The first keynote will be presented by Wesley Ryder, Mentor Graphics. As the Worldwide Technical Director of one of the "Big 3" EDA companies, Wesley will offer insights into emerging design trends and the impact on the India's growing role in the global high tech community.
Presented by: Wesley Ryder, Worldwide Technical Director, Mentor Graphics
The Promise of 2.5D & 3D ASIC Design
Keynote Several factors are causing the ASIC market and design landscape to change rapidly. Where deeper submicron CMOS process technologies continue to provide power, performance and area advantages for digital circuitry, technologies like analog, embedded flash, embedded DRAM and RF do not scale as well. In addition to this, the integration of more and more CPUs into the SoC is putting more and more strain on the interfaces to main memory becoming the performance bottleneck.
Presented by: Hans Bouwmeester, Sr. Director of IP, ARM Center-of-Excellence, Open-Silicon
