Featured Technical Sessions
IC Design Technical Session | 10:00am - 10:45am
Enabling VLSI design and implementation using Industry leading tools and Technologies
VLSI design flow has evolved over past 3 decades from Schematic entry, manual checking of Design & manufacturing rules to high level modelling and most advanced automated design and manufacturing rules. But, with technologies shrinking from um to nm nodes, VLSI design continues to face new challenges and EDA tools have to keep up pace for addressing these new challenges. Mentor Graphics always been working at the cutting edge technology and providing best in class solutions, continues to invent new solutions to address nm technology challenges. In this session, you you will be exposed to the VLSI design flows and some of the current industry challenges. You will learn how Mentor Graphics tools & technologies will help you address these challenges.
Functional Verification Technical Session | 11:30am - 1:00pm
Accelerating FPGA Verification
Introduction, 7-Steps to Advanced Verification and Accelerating FPGA Verification with Mentor technologies
The definition of what FPGA really means has changed dramatically over the last two decades. Whether blazing the trail or being on the trailing edge of Moore’s Law, this is an exciting time to be an FPGA Designer. New opportunities bring new challenges for the FPGA market. As devices grow and become more complex resembling complete systems, the task of verifying such a system becomes daunting. How Can Mentor Graphics help? By providing the latest technology for improving debugging, providing coverage, and improving verification throughput, we have the needed tools and expertise to get your customers products out the door faster and with higher quality.

Managing Embedded Software Development Complexities
Due to lack of computing power to handle day by day growing users feature demand, traditional 8bit and 16bit controllers are gradually being replaced by 32-bit controllers. As developers upgrade their bare metal applications using an RTOS, the 32-bit controllers will be able to meet increased software requirements. There are so many options for an operating system and tools for application development. The increased diversity has made embedded development more complex.
This session introduces Mentor Embedded products to help engineering teams address the many challenges faced throughout the development life cycle. Mentor Embedded provides a complete development ecosystems that includes customer support, which ultimately helps teams deliver innovative products to market faster and with greater confidence
