Open-Silicon to present “Moving Toward Design-Lite for Innovation” at the Design And Reuse IP-SoC Days
When: Tuesday, April 26, 2011 at 9:00 a.m.
Where: Hilton Santa Clara, 4949 Great America Parkway, Santa Clara, CA 95054
Dr. Naveed Sherwani, president and CEO of Open-Silicon, will examine the evolution of the EDA industry, from the adoption of third party IP for complex designs, to fab-lite, where chip fabrication was outsourced to specialized manufacturers, and now the current industry transition to the design-lite model. While innovation requirements coexist with time-to-market pressures, companies are seeking new ways to maximize the return on their product investments. Design-lite enables a company’s engineering team to focus on the core product roadmap, while utilizing the design capabilities of another company to build derivatives of those products and expand market reach. Not only is the market ready for design-lite model, it is necessary in order to meet today’s various design challenges.
