Embedded software quality and platform optimisation are key to consumer productsí success and differentiation. To deliver such optimised products embedded software and hardware engineers require real-time visibility on how the embedded software and hardware interact, both during the product development cycle and in the final products for new applications, maintenance or failure analysis.
In price sensitive, consumer markets this must be achieved with minimal increase in engineering or unit manufacturing costs.
In this panel, industry leaders in embedded software and hardware development (OEMs, silicon suppliers, IP providers and tool vendors) will analyse market requirements and will debate on how cost effective on-chip visibility can be provided to all the SoC developers and users.

Gary is the Architecture CTO of TIís debug architectures. His responsibilities involve defining TI s debug technology infrastructure, helping define TIís overall development tools roadmaps, and influencing the definition of new DSP architectures. He also represents TI in several debug related standards bodies. In 2001, Gary was elected to TI Fellow in recognition of his work on TI debug technology.
Gary began his career with TIís Equipment Group in 1971 after receiving his Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Texas at Austin. Here he gathered systems expertise while working on wide array of high performance computing, telecommunications, radar, and secret military programs. He also worked for an extended period on the Advanced Scientific Computer program, TIís version of a supercomputer.
After moving to TI semiconductor group in 1984, he has architected three generations of TI debug technologies. His work has been instrumental in establishing TI applications debug leadership with these firsts: fully integrated on-chip emulation, PC based toolset, scan based emulation products, JTAG scan based emulation products, and DSP Trace solution.
Gary hold over 140 US and Foreign Patents covering System Architecture and Debug Technology, is the Principle Architect and Author for the IEEE P1149.7ô Standard for Reduced-Pin and Enhanced-Functionality Test Access Port and Boundary-Scan Architecture
