Abstracts sought for ARM TechCon


Abstracts are being accepted for the technical program at the ARM Technology Conference 2011, to be held October 25 – 27 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, California.

The technical program will be presented over three days. On October 25, we will offer tracks on Chip Design . On October 26 and 27 the tracks will cover Software and System Design . Presentations will be in either 50 or 100 minute sessions.

The deadline to submit abstracts Friday, June 3, 2011

The proposed tracks for Chip Design Day , October 25, are show below and visit:

SoC Architecture & Analysis

SoC Design begins with architectural concepts and analysis. Sessions in this track will describe the architectural choices, IP integration issues, and system analyses that define the front end of ARMIP-based SoC design.

SoC Design & Verification
These sessions will cover key aspects of the design and verification flow for ARM processor-based SoCs, from conceptual frameworks to best practices.

SoC Design for Power & Performance
As technology scales for increased circuit density and performance, the need to reduce power consumption increases in significance as designers strive to utilize the advancing silicon capabilities.  In these sessions the focus will be on the techniques than can be used to match performance or power targets.

SoC design depends upon reusable silicon IP. These sessions will focus on both the IP qualification process and some novel new alternatives in IP for ARM processor-based SoCs.

SoC Verification of Challenging Structures
Modern verification methodology has developed primarily in the pure-digital space. But there are many IP blocks in ARMprocessor-based SoCs, from interconnect structures to tightly-integrated mixed-signal functions, that require extensions of the existing verification orthodoxy. Sessions here will examine some of these cases.

The tracks for the the Software and Systems Design Days , October 26 & 27 are shown below visit http://e.eetimes.com/ee-armsystemdesign/index.html to submit an abstract.
