Synfora Announces Seminar for SoC, FPGA Developers

Synfora Inc., the premier provider of algorithmic synthesis tools used to design SoCs and FPGAs, will conduct a seminar on the morning of Tuesday, December 9, 2008, to show SoC and FPGA developers of video IP how to reduce design and verification time while being able to explore alternative implementations that will let them decrease silicon area and power consumption.

The seminar will be conducted by a video expert who has assisted in the architecting and implementing of several leading-edge multi-standard video engines.

The seminar will be held at the Santa Clara Techmart Meeting Center from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM, with lunch being provided from 12:00 to 1:00.

Technical seminar on using PICO Extreme tools to design high-performance video engines
Tuesday, December 9, 2008
10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Techmart Meeting Center
5201 Great America Parkway
Santa Clara CA 95054

Synfora’s PICO Extreme allows designers to rapidly create and verify such complex hardware sub-systems as video codecs, wireless modems and imaging pipelines from an untimed C source. This seminar will introduce the PICO verification tools and methodology and describe how they can be used to design a codec, provide other video system design examples, and include a Q&A session to help clarify any concerns or issues not otherwise covered.

Registration for the seminar is now open at www.synfora.com/seminar/index.html
