Webinar Watch - Synopsys, A Structured Methodology for Verifying Low Power Designs

An in-depth technical webinar focusing on low power verification methodology.

On Tuesday, March 31, 2009 5:00 pm, Pacific Daylight Time (GMT -07:00, San Francisco)
Panelist(s) Info: Krishna Balachandran, Director of Low Power Verification Marketing, Srikanth Jadcherla, Group R&D Director, Janick Bergeron, Synopsys Fellow
Duration: 1 hour
Description: Power management and low power design bring a whole new assortment of bugs and failure mechanisms to IC designs. The task of verification, already a critical path in the delivery of the chip, now needs to take on additional tests and flows to ensure that the power management scheme is functional.

The complexity of power management and the broad spectrum of design scenarios could easily lead to escaped bugs without a rigorous methodology in place. In this webinar, we will focus first on the complexities and changes brought about in the low power era and the bugs types that are new to low power design. We will then cover the process of rigorous verification for low power and present a structured and reusable methodology for low power. The webinar will highlight the VMM extensions to base classes for low power that can be quickly used to replicate an efficient verification environment for low power designs. All the concepts covered in this webinar are detailed in the recently published "Verification Methodology Manual for Low Power" (VMM-LP), which customers of Synopsys can download in a PDF form from

9 am Pacific (9:30 PM IST)
Length: 1 hour
Presenter: Drew Taussig

Custom Processor / Programmable Accelerator Design and Implementation
As companies are looking to improve their competitive advantage, the need for programmable hardware accelerators, ASIPs and custom processors is growing rapidly. They provide the solution to performance and flexibility challenges electronic system designers are facing today. But, in today s economy where there are fewer resources and everyone has cost reduction on their mind, how can you design them efficiently? How can you generate efficient RTL? How can you equip the software developers with the right linker, assembler, compiler, simulator and debugger?

What you will learn:
* Concepts and reasons behind developing custom processors and hardware programmable accelerators.
* Design and implementation steps and how these steps can be streamlined using efficient and powerful design tools that automate the exploration, RTL implementation and software development tools.
* How the generated processor can be used for development and verification in a Virtual Platform for Software Development, an FPGA or an RTL emulation environment.

Getting Started with Virtual Platforms: A Software Developer Perspective
The ability to debug and analyze software defects efficiently is a key requirement in order to complete a software project successfully and on time. Especially when porting legacy software such as an OS or migrating sequential code to multi-core platforms, powerful debugging tools and methods are indispensable. This one hour webinar gives a technical overview and various practical examples on the usage of virtual platforms for debugging. Virtual platforms enable a whole new world of software analysis and debugging solutions. An OS-aware software analysis framework eases the understanding of the history and interaction between multiple parallel software stacks. The controllability and visibility of virtual platforms enables engineers to trigger and analyze multi-processing defects such as dead-locks and race conditions. Correctness and performance of complex shared-memory communication, task scheduling and control can be asserted which results in a significant quality and productivity gain for the software engineer.

What you will learn:
* Overview of the debugging infrastructure provided by a virtual platform
* Practical examples for applying virtual platforms for embedded software debugging based on real world software and hardware configurations
* How the OS-aware analysis and debug framework can be used and customized to debug typical problems that appear during OS porting
* How domain integration problems in an asymmetric, multi-processing platform can be identified
* How virtual platforms can be used to debug shared memory communication problems based on a multi-core video driver
* How virtual platforms can be used to spot an existing bug in the Linux kernel for the ARM11 MPcore configuration

Challenges for LTE Wireless Systems Design
Long-Term Evolution (LTE) wireless systems have 5-10x higher processing complexity than currently-deployed 3G wireless systems. This creates a unique pressure across all aspects of the handsets, the basestation and the network. Previous product platforms have to be significantly re-architected and entirely new software applications have to be developed to take advantage of the much higher bandwidth that LTE is targeted to provide. In this webinar, we will explain those design challenges and offer different approaches that design teams can take to deliver advanced products. The webinar targets development managers across the supply chain that are developing LTE products today or are planning to get involved in the near future. Whether you are a manager inside a network operator, basestation or handset OEM or you are in a semiconductor company, you should participate and learn about how you can meet your LTE product roll-out schedule within your tight development budgets.

What you will learn:
* How network operators can leverage the LTE standard to optimize their network throughput
* How chip architects will extract maximum application performance from their architectures
* How programmability of signal processing accelerators does not come at the expense of too much power
* How application or baseband processing software is developed if it is spread across multiple processor cores
