ARM CEO Simon Segars at ARM Techcon 2013

Posted by – November 3, 2013

ARM CEO talks about some of the things he does as CEO of ARM, spending a lot of time talking to people about what they are doing, and then going back to the office to make sure ARM is doing the right thing to support it all. The ARM ecosystem is growing. The breadth of end markets ARM is being designed into is increasing. After powering virtually every mobile device on the planet, ARM is getting into Servers and also looking into the Internet of Things, which is a very different computing problem. It’s still about getting the right amount of compute power, making it as low power as possible, as small and as low cost as possible.

Calypto high-level synthesis, RTL power optimization and functional verification

Posted by – November 3, 2013

Calypto Design Systems family of products enables ASIC, SOC and FPGA designers to quickly create fully-verified, power-optimized RTL for downstream synthesis and physical design. With Calypto’s Catapult High-Level Synthesis products, designers have the option of using SystemC or C++ to dramatically shorten the design cycle by producing correct-by-construction, error-free, PPA optimized RTL. Calypto’s PowerPro product line enables users to analyze both static and dynamic power usage at RTL and either automatically or manually create a power optimized RTL that includes memory and leakage power optimization. The SLEC family of products formally verifies the complete RTL without the need for time consuming simulation and complex testbenches. The end result is dramatic reduction in time to market with up to 60% reduction in power usage.
