Lauro Rizzatti, Nasr Ullah (Samsung), Bruce Cheng (Starblaze), and Robert Kaye (ARM) discuss emulation for data storage chips, system IP, and embedded software.
By Wednesday afternoon, the 54th Design Automation Conference program was starting to wind down and attendees were scattering for parts unknown. It was a different scene at the Mentor booth on the exhibit floor as a panel titled, "The Explosion of Emulation Used Models in Diverse Segments of The Industry," got under way.
I moderated a discussion about hardware emulation, a topic that was mostly absent from the DAC program. My guests were Nasr Ullah, senior director of performance-power architecture at Samsung, Bruce Cheng, senior staff engineer at Starblaze, the leader in solid state drives (SSDs), and Robert (Rob) Kaye, senior technical specialist with ARM. We discussed emulation for data storage chips, system IP, and embedded software.
