The first DVCon China will take place next Wednesday (April 19th) at the Parkyard Hotel in Shanghai.
The program for the Accellera-sponsored event includes a range of tutorials, technical sessions and keynotes. An exhibition will run alongside these throughout the day, hosting a networking session in the late afternoon.
Highlights include keynotes from Wally Rhines, chairman and CEO of Mentor, A Siemens Business, and Yong Fu, group director of the Verification Group at Synopsys. Both will look at the challenges facing verification and how their companies and the industry are moving to address them.
In the technical program, tutorials will explore ESL, the upcoming standard for portable stimulus, formal verification, practical strategies for low power verification and debug, and more. One will specifically look at how to move an ESL specification to a virtual prototype in a single day.
Paper-session topics include UVM (following formal adoption of the IEEE 1800.2 standard earlier this week), GPU modeling, low power techniques and simulation.
IEEE 1800.2 establishes a set of application programming interfaces (APIs) for the definition of base class libraries in the development of modular, scalable, and reusable components for functional verification.
The inaugural DVCon China has already secured more than 140 attendees. You can still register online to join them. Registration will also be available on site. The event begins at 9:15AM and the technical program is set to conclude at 7:15PM.
As before, the venue for DVCon Europe will be the Holiday Inn Munich City Center.
