The last two weeks before the Design Automation Conference in San Francisco are a busy time. For us marketeers, it has been called “our Superbowl.” We want to get the word out that we have something new and important to show visitors to at our exhibit booth. But there is more going on which I will mention after I talk about our booth activities.
Real Intent is number two on the GarySmithEDA What to See @ DAC list. I know why we are number two on the list. But I don’t want to give the secret away. If you know the reason, then please let everyone know in the comments section at the end of the blog.
Here are the quick titles for our technical presentation in our demo suites.
- Ascent Lint with 3rd Generation iDebug Platform and DO-254
- Meridian CDC for RTL with New 3rd Generation iDebug Platform
- Ascent XV with Advanced Gate-level Pessimism Analysis
- Accelerate Your RTL Sign-off
- Hierarchical CDC Analysis and Reporting for Giga-gate Designs
- Next-Generation Meridian Constraints for SDC
- Autoformal RTL Verification
- FPGA Sign-off and Verification

Besides fast RTL sign-off, we are also having fun at our booth and giving away cool prizes. Come and race against other drivers in our two GRID Racing Simulators and receive your License-to-Speed. Get your license stamped at both the Real Intent and Open Text booths (just around the corner) and you will get a change to win $$$ Amazon gift cards. Fill out our verification survey and you will get a chance to win a Roku 3 streaming media player or a Kindle PaperWhite e-reader. Here is a picture of the GRID simulators.
I hinted earlier that there was more going on than just activities at the Real Intent booth. We are organizers for a Test and Verification panel: Scalable Verification: Evolution or Revolution? on Wed., June 10 from 4:30-6 p.m. in Room #304. Moderated by Brian Bailey (technology and EDA editor of Semiconductor Engineering), it has a panel of experts from Freescale Semiconductor, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, Hewlett-Packard and ARM.
We are also sponsoring the Love IP DAC Party on Monday, June 8 at Jillians in the Metreon, just steps away from the Moscone Center. Doors open at 7 p.m. The party is organized by Heart of Technology (HOT), the philanthropic organization founded by EDA veteran Jim Hogan. This event brings the DAC and IP communities together to raise money for the San Jose State Guardian Scholars – a program to help underprivileged and homeless students at the university. The party’s theme is “Summer of Love,” so come in your best Jerry Garcia look-alike costume!
And don’t forget the The Denali Party by Cadence on Tuesday night, June 9. You will want to sign up online before the DAC show starts to get your ticket by Tuesday morning. See you there!
