Imperas CEO Simon Davidmann Speaks at DVCon 2016

DVCon 2016 Panel Addresses Redefining ESL

OXFORD, United Kingdom, February 9, 2016 -- Imperas Software Ltd., leader in high-performance software simulation and virtual prototyping, today announced that its CEO, Simon Davidmann, will speak on an Electronic System Level (ESL) panel at DVCon 2016. DVCon is the premier conference for discussion of the functional design and verification of electronic systems. 

This DVCon panel, “Redefining ESL”, is moderated by Brian Bailey of Semiconductor Engineering, who recently wrote an article titled, “What ESL Is Really About.” There are many views on the role of ESL (Electronic System Level) in design and verification, so panelists will have plenty to consider as they discuss raising the level of abstraction from the Register Transfer Level (RTL) to ESL for both hardware and software.

DVCon attendees are invited to join Brian Bailey, Simon Davidmann, and other distinguished experts who will attempt to define ESL verification, from tools to flows. Specifically, Simon will address where ESL and verification needs to go, virtual platforms, embedded software development, debugging, analysis, and verification.

Panelists include:

  • Simon Davidmann - Imperas Software Ltd.
  • Adnan Hamid - Breker Verification Systems, Inc.
  • Sean Dart - Cadence Design Systems, Inc.
  • Bryan Bowyer - Mentor Graphics Corp.
  • Raik Brinkmann - OneSpin Solutions GmbH
  • Tom De Schutter - Synopsys, Inc.

Where: DoubleTree Hotel, San Jose, CA

When: DVCon: February 29 - March 3, 2016. Redefining ESL

Panel: Wednesday March 2, 8:30 - 9:30am
