Accellera: Applications for the UVM-AMS Standard

Monday, February 27, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Power and Energy Efficient System Design using PowerPro

Monday, February 27, 1:30 pm – 5:00 pm (T4.2)
Mahmud Ullah, Application Engineer

In this workshop, we will be demonstrating why early RTL power and energy estimations are key metrics and how the two metrics have taken a center stage lately in performance-sensitive system design considerations.​ we will be talking about the RTL Power Analysis as a solution and the challenges associated with it.​ Also, proposing a regression-ready, error-correcting and fully seamless methodology for an early Power closure at RTL level. We will discuss the key aspects of this methodology like vectorless power linting, Power Analysis, Energy Calculations and the Inputs Qualification for a more reliable power and energy reporting. ​​

Democratizing digital-centric mixed-signal verification methodologies

Monday, February 27, 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

Verification of inferencing algorithm accelerators

Thursday, March 2, 1:30 pm – 5:00 pm (T2.3)
Russel Klein, Program Director

This workshop will show how to go from Python code in a machine learning framework, like TensorFlow or Caffe, to RTL. As the algorithm is successively refined, at each stage it is necessary to show that both the refinement goals have been achieved and that the implementation has not deviated from the prior design stage. The algorithm will be migrated from Python, to C++, and finally to RTL using High-Level Synthesis (HLS).

Lunch & Keynote

Harry Foster, Chief Scientist

Data-Driven Escape from the Verification Pit of Despair

Sponsored Lunch 12:30–13:30 - Pine Cedar

Harry will present the state of verificatiotoday based on the findings from the 2022 Wilson Research Group study and then proposes a novel solution to today’s verification crisis.

What Do Farming, Steel, and Space Have in Common?

Keynote 13:30–14:30 - Oak/Fir

With examples from Space Perspective, 80 Acres Farms, and others, we will show you how the new wave of digitalization is driving huge transformations and inspiration for every industry.

It’s about connecting the real and the digital worlds to help everyone innovate faster and adapt to the world better than ever by turning complexity into competitive advantage.
