KEYNOTE: The Imminent EDA Transformation

The EDA industry faces a substantial shift. Electronic systems are going through fundamental and rapid change in domains ranging from TVs and in-vehicle devices to phones, tablets, and even PCs. These new systems require unprecedented connectivity, hardware and software complexity, and application and user interactions. To meet these challenges, the EDA industry must evolve and expand quickly to enable highly interdependent silicon, software, system, and experience solutions. The EDA industry's current offering need to be reassessed, and the scope of the industry’s capabilities and environments needs to encompass exploration, design, verification, and debug across the complete hardware and software stack. This keynote will highlight opportunities for innovation and the changes necessary to support this brisk evolution and value creation in electronic systems.
