The design decisions made early in the design cycle have a dramatic effect on all of the downstream processes. The ability to make correct decisions early and leverage these throughout the design process is why virtual prototyping plays an increasingly important role in leading SoCs. ARM and Carbon Design Systems are jointly presenting a webinar on how virtual prototypes can be used to make critical design decisions on SoC designs containing ARM’s leading CoreLink NIC-400 interconnect.
This webinar will demonstrate multiple real world cases where Carbon Performance Analysis Kits using 100% accurate models of the CoreLink NIC-400 and Cortex-A53 together with pre-built software and advance analysis capabilities to deliver useful results within minutes of download. Case studies will include initial bring up and optimization of NIC-400 systems at the bare metal level and will also cover how the same approaches can be used to boot an OS in under a minute followed by 100% accurate system level performance analysis.
William Orme - Strategic Marketing Manager for System IP, Processor Division at ARM. William is responsible for the CoreLink NIC-400 and the next generation on-chip interconnect. At ARM since 1996 he has lead the introduction of many new products, including the ETM and subsequent CoreSight multi-core debug and trace products. Prior to joining ARM, William spent 12 years designing embedded systems from financial dealing rooms, through industrial automation to smartcard systems. William holds degrees in electronics and computer science as well as an MBA.
Bill Neifert - Chief technical officer and founder at Carbon Design Systems. Prior to founding Carbon, he worked in applications engineering management positions at Quickturn Systems and C Level Design. Bill started his career as a design engineer at Bull HN. He has a BS and MS in Computer Engineering from Boston University.
Eric Sondhi - Corporate applications engineer at Carbon Design Systems. Before Carbon, Eric worked as a software engineer developing core software and device drivers for next generation storage systems.
