“The IP industry continues to fuel and enable the emerging markets and DAC is where the who’s who of the IP industry comes to present the latest technologies”, said Claude Moughanni of Lattice Semiconductor and the 54th DAC IP Chairman. “This year, the IP track committee will be inviting industry thought leaders to present on topics such as: Unique Requirements Facing IP Providers for the Automotive Market; Security IP for IOT from Sensors to Cloud and Silicon IP on the Cutting Edge of technology. The DAC IP Track is a great meeting spot for IP providers and SoC integrators to meet and discuss respective opportunities and challenges.”
The IP Track provides an opportunity for experts in the field to deliver presentations and/or poster sessions on IP related topics; and to host panels and invited talks on timely IP related issues. The DAC IP Track Committee will consider favorably proposals that fit into our session matrix which address some part of the Internet of Things (IoT) marketplace.
The 2017 DAC IP track will include sessions, panels and a combined Designer and IP Poster Session, as follows:
- Low Power IP
- IP Implementation
- IP Subsystems and Integration
- Verification IP
- IP Strategies and Management
- IP Poster Session
IP Track Submissions
The IP Track specifically seeks contributions from system engineers, hardware designers, embedded software developers, application engineers, and vendor/customer teams. Documented tool use may target electronic design and system design at all levels of abstraction and across all application domains.
Submissions may describe any aspect of the design, use, verification, selection process, assembly process and export process of intellectual property cores. Tools can be from EDA vendors or developed in-house, while flows can be built around a single tool or multiple tools:
1. IP Provider (IPP): Providers of third-party IP and are invited to propose a panel including themselves, other IP providers, and IP users to discuss the process of choosing what IP to use in an SoC or FPGA. Target audience is SoC designers and systems companies that would purchase IP and incorporate it into their products.
2. IP Ecosystem (IPE): Providers of tools and/or methodologies designed to help the producers and users of IP perform their tasks more efficiently are invited to propose a panel including themselves and other providers to discuss the design and implementation concerns that IP producers and users should consider as a part of their design process. Target audience is SoC designers and systems companies that would purchase IP and incorporate it into their products.
3. IP User (IPU): Users of IP cores are invited to present slides or a poster describing their experiences incorporating IP into their design, challenges encountered, and the way those challenges were overcome. Target audience is other SoC designers who would like to understand an experienced user’s process and learn from it.
The submission site is now open. The deadline for IP Track submissions is January 24, 2017. For additional submission information and deadlines, please visit http://www.dac.com.
The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier event for the design of electronic circuits and systems and for electronic design automation (EDA) and silicon solutions. Since 1964, a diverse worldwide community of many thousands of professionals has attended DAC. They include system designers and architects, logic and circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior managers and executives as well as researchers and academicians from leading universities. Close to 60 technical sessions selected by a committee of electronic design experts offer information on recent developments and trends, management practices and new products, and methodologies and technologies. A highlight of DAC is its exhibition and suite area featuring leading and emerging EDA, silicon, intellectual property (IP) automotive, security and design services providers. The conference is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDA Consortium), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and is supported by ACM's Special Interest Group on Design Automation (ACM SIGDA).
Design Automation Conference acknowledges trademarks or registered trademarks of other organizations for their respective products and services.
