The first Bluespec user community workshop will be held Monday, August 13, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Stata Center at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Mass. The workshop, hosted by MIT, will offer a forum for users to describe their experiences using Bluespec and to showcase the different ways in which Bluespec is being used.
The program includes user presentations in areas such as lowering power consumption, building processors, and architecture and performance modeling on field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). In addition, attendees will be given a Bluespec product update and opportunities to provide feedback to the development team.
Hardware designers and software developers from large systems and semiconductor companies worldwide, and members of academia are expected to attend.

“I am pleased with the high quality of presentations and the response to this user initiative,” remarks George Harper, Bluespec’s vice president of marketing. “This is a terrific opportunity to cross-fertilize ideas and grow the end-user community. Attendees will learn more about Bluespec and our ongoing development plans.”
Bluespec Inc. manufactures an industry standards-based Electronic Design Automation (EDA) toolset that significantly raises the level of abstraction for hardware design while retaining the ability to automatically synthesize high-quality RTL, without compromising speed, power or area. The toolset, the only one focused on control and complex datapaths, allows ASIC and FPGA designers to reduce design time, bugs and re-spins that contribute to product delays and escalating costs.
