Calypto to Present Power, System Design Workshops at DATE

Calypto(TM) Design Systems Inc., the leader in sequential analysis technology, will participate in two workshops during Design Automation and Test in Europe (DATE) 07 next week at the Nice Acropolis in Nice, France.

The first, “Common Power Format Workshop on Standards for Low-Power Design Intent,” is sponsored by Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) and will be held Wednesday, April 18, from 10 a.m. to noon in Room Maia on the Rhodes Level. Calypto’s presentation by Product Marketing Director Mitch Dale follows an announcement this week that Calypto added support for Si2′s Common Power Format 1.0 (CPF) to its PowerPro(TM) CG product. PowerPro CG has reduced power in customer designs by up to 60% with no impact to functionality, area or performance.

The second workshop, “System Design: From Algorithm to RTL,” will feature product demonstrations from Calypto, The MathWorks, VaST Systems and Forte Design Systems working in concert to create a complete design flow. Calypto will show how its SLEC(TM) (Sequential Logic Equivalence Checking) product verifies register transfer level (RTL) implementations by leveraging system models. The workshop will be held April 18 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. in Room Maia on the Rhodes Level.
