ARM continues to have large presence at DAC this year at booth #2007 and ARM Connected Community Pavilion at booth #2001. At the heart of the world’s most advanced digital products, ARM is expanding the mobile experience from sensors to servers. We will be demonstrating the latest ARM technologies and hosting presentations and tutorials. This year, we have 15 Partners in the ARM Connected Community Pavilion to showcase their technologies and demos based on ARM architecture. Here are part of the information of demos and panels, which may help you plan your visit in advance.

Cadence has different demos with ARM Cortex-M0 MCU IoT design, ARMv8 Mobile SoC performance analysis and verification, implementation of Cortex-A53/57 cores for advanced nodes, etc. 4 talks from Cadence at booth 2001 have been scheduled.

  • June 2, Monday, 2:35 - 3:00pm: ARMv8 Mobile SoC Performance Analysis and Verification
  • June 3, Tuesday, 11:35am - 12:00pm: Addressing MCU Mixed Signal Design Challenges
  • June 3, Tuesday, 3:15pm - 3:35pm: Best Starting Point for Implementation of Cortex A57/A53 Cores for Advanced Nodes
  • June 4, Wednesday, 10:35am - 12:00pm: Early OS bring-up for ARM-based Systems

And the competition has started! The ARM Step Challenge at DAC: Throwing Down the Gauntlet . Follow us on @ARMCommunity and Facebook to be updated with the result and DAC news.

We are glad to have support from Mentor Graphics. Steve Bailey, Director of Emerging Technologies and Shabtay Matalon, Market Development Manager will present at ARM booth #2007 separately:

  • June 2, Monday, 4:45pm: Block-to-System Verification of ARM-Based SoCs
  • June 3, Tuesday, 3:35pm: Vista Virtual Prototyping for HW/SW Debug and Analysis

If you are an early bird, don't forget the Samsung–ARM–Synopsys Breakfast: A Simple Formula for Success with Next-Generation Wearables to High-Performance SoCs. Monday, June 2, 7:30 – 8:45 am. Westin Hotel – Market Street – Metropolitan Ballroom I & II. Register now

VLAB Works / ASTC will be showcasing VLAB Virtual Prototyping System, Genesis and ARM Virtual Platforms and Models at booth #2001. These 2 videos may give you some information in advance VLAB Demo: Linux bring-up on ARM-based Design for Mobile , Cell phone with Android OS and Touchscreen.
