GENERAL CHAIR’S WELCOME
Finally, this all star lineup concludes on Thursday with
UT-Austin researcher Peter Stone explaining how machine
learning has helped him construct the world’s top soccer
robot team.
Dear Colleagues,
I am delighted to welcome
you to Austin, Texas, home of
the 53rd Design Automation
Conference. Austin also
happens to be my home for the
past 20 years. In that time, I
have watched the city, known to
many as Silicon Hills, grow into a
technology powerhouse. Austin
is famous for being weird, but
with the arrival of the 53rd Design Automation Conference,
it is now nerdy as well. Over the past year we have
introduced the “Keep Austin Nerdy” theme for the 53rd
DAC and hope to continue this trend for years to come.
New at DAC this year will be Research Grove and the
Grove Lounge, where I invite those of you attending
the technical sessions to stop by the Grove to sit and
relax after a day of sessions. The “Grove” enables those
attending the research conference program a place to get
some refreshments and network with their colleagues.
As we all know, much of the action and excitement
happens on the exhibition floor. This year, DAC is pleased
to host over 175 exhibitors who are an integral part of the
conference ecosystem. In addition to the vendors the
DAC exhibition floor offers the following for all attendees
to enjoy:
Monday evening brings a new addition to the conference:
the first DAC Silicon/Technology Art Show. The Art
Show will highlight the beauty of electronic design and
algorithms and showcase the works of companies and
individuals that contribute to our industry. I encourage
you to attend the Art Show/evening reception on Monday
night starting at 6:00pm.
• World of IoT Exhibit featuring the IP Pavilion, the
Embedded Pavilion and the Maker’s Market
• NXP IoT truck, showcasing devices that the industry
enables
• NXP US Finals Racecar Challenge
With the help of hundreds of volunteers, the DAC
executive committee has assembled a fantastic technical
program, featuring sessions on hardware and software
security, automotive, IoT, design, EDA algorithms, IP, and
embedded software and systems.
• Food Trucks featuring local cuisine
• The DAC Pavilion which each day includes a SKY Talk,
an Austin Angle Talk, an unscripted interview with an
EDA CEO, an industry analyst review and a teardown.
While the show floor closes on Wednesday afternoon,
stick around on Thursday for revamped training day.
As in previous years, Duolos brings forth first class
designer training. This year we are also offering training in
advanced C++ and executive management, sponsored by
the McCombs School of Business.
I am especially proud of the direction the Design/IP Track
has taken this year with over 27 sessions consisting of
over 127 presentations taking place over three days.
This is more than double the content that this track had
three years ago, the last time DAC was in Austin. This
Design/IP Track is THE place for the design community to
connect with each other and share their best practices.
On Monday-Wednesday, the Design/IP Track concludes
at 5:00 each day with a happy hour/poster session on the
show floor.
With so much going on at the show, how do you keep
track of all the sessions and activities at DAC?
I encourage you to download the mobile app! It is the best
way I can recommend you manage your schedule and
activities at the show plus by playing the DAC Attack app
game you can win cool prizes.
Highlighting the diversity of our program are the
outstanding Keynotes taking place each morning of the
conference spanning from Automotive to Robotics. Lars
Reger from NXP kicks things off on Monday and will tie
our EDA industry to the burgeoning space of automotive
electronics. On Tuesday, Sameer Halepete from NVIDIA
explains the design and applications of complex graphics
chips. Wednesday, Mark Papermaster CTO from AMD
(and former silicon design chief for Apple and IBM)
explains his secrets for making truly great products.
Enjoy the show!

KEYNOTE PRESENTATIONS
KEYNOTE: REVOLUTION AHEAD –
WHAT IT TAKES TO ENABLE SECURELY
CONNECTED, SELF-DRIVING CARS
Lars Reger - Chief Technology Officer of Automotive Business Unit,
NXP Semiconductors, Hamburg, Germany
Monday, June 6 | | 9:15 - 10:00am | | Ballroom A
Few industries are as primed for radical change in the years ahead as the worldwide automotive market. Advanced driver
assistance system (ADAS) features are increasingly common in entry-level/affordable new car models, and today’s high-end
vehicles commonly receive over-the-air software updates and feature semi-autonomous driving functionality.
Meanwhile, Silicon Valley start-ups and established auto OEMs alike are rushing to deliver the first true “self-driving” cars.
See page 22 for more details.
VISIONARY TALK: LEARNING FROM LIFE:
BIOLOGICALLY INSPIRED ELECTRONIC
DESIGN
Lou Scheffer - Principal Scientist, Janelia Research Campus,
Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Chevy Chase, MD
Tuesday, June 7 | | 9:00 - 9:20am | | Ballroom A
Modern electronics does amazing things, but biology routinely performs feats no current electronics can match. Every animal
can learn on short timescales, defend against unforeseen threats, self-assemble and repair, all with great resilience. The
shortest path to incorporating these features in our gadgets is to understand how biology works, then adapt these techniques
to the semiconductor world.
See page 36 for more details.

KEYNOTE: DRIVING THE NEXT DECADE OF
INNOVATIONS IN VISUAL AND ACCELERATED
COMPUTING
Sameer Halepete - Vice President of VLSI Engineering, NVIDIA Corp,
Santa Clara, CA
Tuesday, June 7 | | 9:20 - 10:00am | | Ballroom A
The ever-increasing performance demands of performance visual and accelerated computing has resulted in GPUs becoming
some of the most complex ASICs being built today. These multi-billion transistor processors push design technologies to their
limits and require incredibly robust implementation methodologies. At the same time, there are new performance demands
from both the traditional source of gaming thanks to higher resolution displays and virtual reality applications as well as new
GPU uses like deep learning and autonomous driving.
See page 36 for more details.
KEYNOTE: THE CHALLENGE TO DEVELOP
TRULY GREAT PRODUCTS
Mark Papermaster - Chief Technology Officer and Senior Vice President,
Advanced Micro Devices, Inc., Sunnyvale, CA
Wednesday, June 8 | | 9:00 - 10:00am | | Ballroom A
Mark Papermaster, CTO and SVP of Technology and Engineering at AMD, will take closer look at various challenges
companies face when they set out to build winning products. Drawing up on more than 30 years of engineering experience,
Mark explores innovation and what defines a great product, as well as his thoughts on the role of leadership to create an
environment to enable both disruptive thinking combined with strong execution.
See page 53 for more details.
KEYNOTE: LEARNING AND MULTIAGENT
REASONING FOR AUTONOMOUS ROBOTS
Peter Stone - David Bruton, Jr. Centennial Professor of Computer Science,
Univ. of Texas at Austin, TX
Thursday, June 9 | | 9:10 - 10:00am | | Ballroom A
Over the past half-century, we have transitioned from a world with just a handful of mainframe computers owned by large
corporations, to a world in which private individuals have multiple computers in their homes, in their cars, in their pockets, and
even on their bodies. This transition was enabled by computer science research in multiple areas such as systems, networking,
programming languages, human computer interaction, and artificial intelligence.

SKY TALKS
SKY TALK: WIRELESS IMPLANTABLE
MICROSYSTEMS: MINIMALLY INVASIVE
INTERFACES TO THE BRAIN
Rikky Muller - Univ. of California, Berkeley & Cortera Neurotechnologies,
Berkeley, CA
Monday, June 6 | | 1:00 - 1:30pm | | DAC Pavilion - Booth 1839
Smart and connected medical implants are the next frontier in the Internet of Things (IoT) and are set to revolutionize
healthcare. Advancing our ability to interface technology with biological environments will enable patients to be monitored and
receive treatment at home, and in the long term, have chronically implanted electronic devices seamlessly integrate with their
everyday lives. As an example, clinically viable and minimally invasive neural interfaces stand to transform disease care for
patients of neurological conditions.
See page 24 for more details.
SKY TALK: RISC-V: INSTRUCTION SETS WANT
TO BE FREE
Krste Asanovic - Univ. of California, Berkeley & SiFive, Inc., Berkeley, CA
Tuesday, June 7 | | 1:00 - 1:30pm | | DAC Pavilion - Booth 1839
The most important interface in a computer system is the instruction set architecture (ISA) as it connects software to hardware.
So, given the prevalence of open standards for almost all other important interfaces, why is the ISA still proprietary? We argue
that a free ISA is a necessary precursor to future hardware innovation, and there’s no good technical reason not to have free,
open ISAs just as we have free, open networking standards and free, open operating systems.
See page 41 for more details.

SKY TALK: SECURITY AT DIFFERENT LAYERS
OF ABSTRACTIONS: APPLICATION, OPERATING
SYSTEMS, AND HARDWARE
Bryan Payne - Netflix, Los Gatos, CA
Wednesday, June 8 | | 1:00 - 1:30pm | | DAC Pavilion - Booth 1839
When it comes to computer security, attackers often seek out weaknesses at the abstraction boundaries in a system.
Therefore, boundaries between layers such as the hardware, operating system, and application have a significant security
impact. This talk will address how security is influenced by different dimensions of computing including hardware and software
abstractions and scale, along with how threat models can help to manage this complexity.
See page 58 for more details.
SKY TALK: BIOLOGICAL ELECTRONICS:
MERGING LIFE’S TRANSISTORS WITH THE
SOLID-STATE
Kenneth Shepard - Columbia Univ., New York, NY
Thursday, June 9 | | 1:00 - 1:30pm | | Room 17AB
Silicon integrated circuits based on CMOS technology form the basis for complex electronic systems with more than 10 billion
transistors in a single chip. As the scaling of solid-state devices through Moore’s Law reaches an end and there is a search to
expand the capabilities of CMOS technology to new applications through the addition of new materials (“more than Moore”),
biological components represent a largely untapped opportunity. Living systems have lipid bilayer membranes, which act as
capacitors, storing charge as ionic gradients across these membranes.

IN MEMORY
ERNEST S. KUH | 1928 - 2015
Since June 2015, the design
automation community has
mourned a pioneering scholar,
educator, visionary and mentor.
As noted by his Ph.D. graduate, Dr. Chi-Ping Hsu, “Since
the mid-1970s, Professor Kuh has been one of the key
founding fathers of the EDA industry …. Many of the early
EDA companies were formed by his students and fellow
researchers. His vision and guidance helped expedite the
formation and maturity of the EDA industry.” Even after
decades of refinement and reinvention, the credit due to
Professor Kuh’s many paradigmatic works (e.g., analytic
placement, performance-driven layout, physical synthesis)
remains clear. Today, many of Professor Kuh’s 40 Ph.D.
graduates and numerous industrial visitors occupy senior
leadership positions in academia and industry. Truly, EDA
would not be what it is today without the many contributions
of Professor Kuh and the “kuhsgroup” alumni.
Professor Ernest Shiu-Jen Kuh
was born in Beijing in 1928. He left
China in 1947 to study electrical
engineering at the University of
Michigan, where he received the
B.S. degree in 1949. He received
the M.S. degree from MIT in 1950, and the Ph.D. degree
from Stanford in 1952. From 1952 to 1956, he was a
member of the Technical Staff at Bell Telephone Laboratories
in Murray Hill, where his work on transmission repeater
designs and submarine cable design was incorporated into
the first trans-Atlantic telephone cable. He joined the UC
Berkeley faculty in 1956.
Over his lifetime, Professor Kuh received numerous honors
and awards for his pioneering contributions in active and
passive circuit theory, electronic design automation of
integrated circuits, and engineering education. These include
the IEEE Centennial Medal, the IEEE Education Medal,
the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society Award, the IEEE
Millennium Medal, and the EDA Consortium’s Phil Kaufman
Award. He was also a member of the National Academy of
Engineering and the Academia Sinica, and a foreign member
of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. From the mid-1970s,
he worked to recruit and retain more women and people
of color to the engineering field. With his wife Bettine, he
endowed the Ernest S. Kuh Distinguished Lecture Series
to bring notable scientists and engineers to campus. And
even in retirement, he would sit through entire DAC sessions,
listening carefully to the talks and asking the most probing
and thought-provoking questions.
After completing (with Charles Desoer) the classic 1967
textbook, Basic Circuit Theory, Professor Kuh served as
chair of the newly integrated EE&CS department at Berkeley
from 1968-1972. He then served as Dean of the College
of Engineering from 1973-1980. His leadership and vision
presciently opened up such new frontiers as bioelectronics;
established the Industrial Liaison Program model of research
interaction and the Berkeley Engineering Fund; and raised
funds for what would become the Bechtel Engineering
Center. A 1977-1978 sabbatical in Japan led to his interest
in VLSI CAD, which became the focus of his research for the
remainder of his career.
Professor Kuh shaped the field of placement and
floorplanning with the Berkeley Building Block Layout (BBL)
system; the RAMP resistive-network placement approach
that exploited sparse-matrix techniques; the PROUD analytic
placer; quadratic Boolean programming for multi-way
partitioning; and many other seminal works. He shaped the
field of routing with works on planar routing and single-row
routing; graph models such the channel intersection graph
for building-block layout; power/ground network sizing;
and the matching-based approach to clock tree synthesis.
It is no surprise that Volume 1, Issue Number 1 of IEEE
Transactions on CAD (January 1982) contains the seminal
paper of Yoshimura and Kuh, “Efficient Algorithms for
Channel Routing”, which has been cited nearly 300 times.
Dr. Wayne Dai, another Ph.D. graduate, said, “Professor
Kuh has been my lifelong mentor and role model. His great
vision of the ‘big picture,’ his brilliant mind driven by passion
and persistence, and his deeply caring spirit that never
faltered in its generosity will be remembered fondly by all
of us.” Professor Kuh will be remembered by students and
colleagues as a true scholar and gentleman, a sportsman
who loved to play tennis, and a kind and generous mentor.
Memorial gifts may be directed to the Berkeley Engineering
Fund, College of Engineering, 201 McLaughlin Hall #1722,
Berkeley, CA 94720-1722, designated to the Ernest S. Kuh
Distinguished Lecture Series. Donations may also be made
to the California Alumni Association’s Professor Ernest Kuh
Alumni Scholarship, sent to 1 Alumni House, Berkeley, CA
94720-7520.
In Prof. Kuh’s honor, CEDA has renamed its IEEE CEDA Early Career Award to IEEE CEDA Ernest S. Kuh Early Career Award.

IN MEMORY
STEVEN P. LEVITAN | 1950 - 2016
With a heavy heart, we say
goodbye to Steven P. Levitan,
a kind and inspiring colleague,
a fabulous mentor, a distinctive
educator and researcher, and a
longtime DAC volunteer leader.
Steve developed the first publically available compiler and
simulator for the VHDL design language that he distributed
to over 150 academic and industry users. In the mid-90s,
Steve turned his attention to research and development
of tools for mixed-technology microsystems. Funded
by NSF and DARPA he developed the first multi-scale
mixed technology simulator for electro-optical-mechanical
systems. Steve was also instrumental in leading efforts to
develop material for teaching functional verification at the
undergraduate-level that has been adopted by more than
75 universities world-wide. He was working on new models
of non-Boolean computing using the intrinsic dynamics of
coupled oscillator systems funded by the NSF Expeditions in
Computing Program at the time of his death.
Steven P. Levitan was the John A.
Jurenko Professor of Computer
Engineering in the Department
of Electrical and Computer
Engineering at The University of Pittsburgh. He received
his B.S. degree from Case Western Reserve University in
1972. From 1972 to 1977, he worked for Xylogic Systems
designing hardware for computerized text processing
systems. He received his M.S. (1979) and Ph.D. (1984), both
in Computer Science, from the University of Massachusetts,
Amherst. During that time he also worked for Digital
Equipment Corporation, and Viewlogic Systems, as a
consultant in HDL simulation and synthesis. Steve was
an Assistant Professor from 1984 to 1986 in the Electrical
and Computer Engineering Department at the University of
Massachusetts. In 1987 he joined the Electrical Engineering
faculty at the University of Pittsburgh where he held a joint
appointment in the Department of Computer Science. Steve
was co-founder and organizer of the Computer Engineering
program at Pitt.
Steve’s service to the EDA community is immense. He
was Chair of the ACM Special Interest Group on Design
Automation (SIGDA). He was on the ACM/IEEE Design
Automation Executive Committee from 1998 to 2008 and
General Chair of the 44th DAC in 2007. Steve organized/
co-organized numerous workshops for faculty development
(including this year’s DAC Young Faculty Workshop) and
numerous workshops targeted at recruiting, retaining,
and advancing undergraduate and graduate students in
microsystems design. He was a great friend to many of his
students, colleagues and collaborators.
Steve passed away unexpectedly during Spring Recess, on
March 7, 2016, in his San Diego home. Steve’s leadership,
warmth, and humor will be missed but his legacy will remain.
Steve’s fundamental contributions to education and
research in microsystems technology have spanned the
three decades of his professional career. In the 1980s he
partnered with engineers from Digital Equipment Corporation
to develop one of the first VLSI design course sequences for
undergraduate students at the University of Massachusetts,
Amherst. This led to his creation of one of the first
undergraduate VLSI capstone design sequences in the
United States. Steve was an early strong advocate for VLSI
capstone courses that tie together many of the fundamental
ideas in a computer engineering degree as well as providing
a necessary significant design experience for students
before they entered the workforce.

IN MEMORY
EDWARD J. MCCLUSKEY | 1929-2016
Ed McCluskey, Professor Emeritus
of Electrical Engineering and
Computer Science at Stanford,
was a giant who shaped the design
and testing of digital systems for
over half a century. He sustained
a relentless pace of fundamental
contributions for efficient and
robust design, high-quality testing,
and reliable operation of digital
systems. Ed was also a pioneer
in establishing and fostering computer engineering as a
profession.
Ed and his students developed many key concepts in faulttolerant computing. One example is diverse replication,
logic circuitry implementing alternative structures to check
the main structure, or watchdog processor checking the
main program by executing a related, but simpler, version.
Software diverse redundancy concepts in the ARGOS
mission demonstrated feasibility of commercial off-the-shelf
microprocessors in space applications. Ed’s fault-tolerance
and testing concepts are even more essential for safety in
future applications such as self-driving cars.
Ed was one of the world’s leading educators. His
textbooks on logic design defined the discipline. Computer
Engineering and the IEEE Computer Society owe their
current status to Ed in a major way. He was first president
of the IEEE Computer Society. At Princeton, Ed established
the Computer Engineering curriculum, and founded the
university computer center in the early 1960s. At Stanford,
he founded the Digital Systems Lab (renamed Computer
Systems Lab) that uniquely cultivated collaboration between
EE and CS. “Ed McCluskey was a pioneer in the computer
engineering community,” said Stanford President John
Hennessy. “He recruited me to Stanford to join the laboratory
in 1977. In addition to shaping the development of digital
systems, he was a great educator, producing an incredible
group of [75] PhD graduates, many of whom have gone on
to become industry leaders.” He founded the Center for
Reliable Computing (CRC) at Stanford. CRC played a major
role in advancing the fields of computer reliability and testing
from ad hoc pursuits to frontline academic and industrial
research.
“Prof. McCluskey was the father of modern digital design.
His seminal contributions to switching theory, logic design,
testing and fault-tolerant computing laid the foundation for
the computer processors that power so much of our world
today,” said Dr. Arvind Krishna, senior vice president and
director of IBM Research.
Ed created the Quine-McCluskey logic minimization
procedure as a doctoral student, which marked the
beginning of Electronic Design Automation (EDA). Over
the last 60 years, this method has been and continues to
be used in numerous EDA tools. His work on hazards in
logic circuits and fundamental-mode sequential circuits are
classics.
When Ed entered the digital testing field in the late 1960s,
it was considered “black art” without solid technical
foundations. His deep insights transformed the way testing
is practiced in industry and researched in academia:
algebraic fault properties, Murphy and ELF experiments
establishing test metrics (rather than fault models) as key to
high-quality testing, and Very Low Voltage testing. Ed was
on the forefront of exploring novel approaches, rooted in
mathematical principles, for blending test into digital system
design.
Ed received numerous awards and honors. Dr. Aart De Geus,
Synopsys Chairman, summarized: “We see a great oak tree
suddenly fall and immediately feel the void left behind. As
a young student learning about Ed’s work, all the way to
today appreciating his contributions in making the ‘digital
revolution’ not a slogan but a world-changing reality, we
realize the impact of Ed’s contribution on our field and our
own destiny.”
People wishing to share thoughts and memories of Ed are
invited to send them to [email protected]
IEEE Council on EDA (CEDA) sponsors a CEDA Luncheon
at DAC in honor of Prof. Edward J. McCluskey on Tuesday,
June 7th, at 12:00pm. It features tributes by leading
researchers and a distinguished lecture. Please join us in
Ballroom D to thank Ed!

IN MEMORY
MARIE R. PISTILLI | 1933 - 2015
While her critical contribution was in helping the EDA
industry through its early years of rapid and chaotic growth,
perhaps her proudest contribution was in her efforts to
gain recognition for the contributions of women in EDA.
Along with a dedicated group of committee members, she
worked to bring recognition to the many technical and
industrial contributions of women in the evolution of design
automation. While doing so she also worked to establish
connections between women in all stages of their careers.
In honor of her efforts the DAC executive Committee
established the Marie R. Pistilli Women in EDA Achievement
Award, which is awarded at DAC annually since 2001 to an
individual who has a made a significant contribution to the
advancement of women in the field of EDA. She remained
active in these efforts until her death in November, 2015.
Marie Pistilli took an unusual
path to the EDA industry. She
wasn’t trained as an engineer but
she played an important role in
helping to guide the industry from
its infancy. With the launch of the
commercial EDA industry in 1982
there was a natural need to bring
these young companies together
(Daisy, Mentor, Valid, etc.) and DAC
was the place to do it. Along with
her husband Pat (DAC co-founder and an engineer at AT&T
Bell Labs), Marie had the foresight to understand that for
DAC to reach its potential it needed professional support
and a steady hand so in 1984 MP Associates was born.
Through Marie’s steadfast leadership she was able to guide
DAC through a period of tumultuous growth shepherding
it from just 20 companies to over 250 by the end of the
millennium, placing it as one of the top 100 shows in the US.
It is said that “If I have seen further it is by standing on the
shoulders of giants.” Through the foundation Marie built
years ago, industry events such as DAC and ICCAD are still
here and still going strong.
She is survived by Pat, her husband of 62 years, three
daughters and 5 grandchildren.

IN MEMORY
GARY SMITH | 1941 - 2015
This year we lost a visionary in the
field of design automation. Smith
was the best-known industry
analyst in EDA, a leading design
technologist and foremost EDA
strategist. He defined market
segments, tracked market share,
offered market growth projections,
consulted with major EDA providers
and their customers, published
detailed research reports, and
served as a tireless advocate for more efficient ways of
designing chips that may have a billion transistors or
more. A blog post called Smith the “single most important
prognosticator in EDA.”
In 1994 Smith went to work as an EDA industry analyst for
research firm Gartner Dataquest. For his lengthy tenure
there, lasting until 2006, Smith was an authoritative,
independent spokesperson who was widely quoted in the
electronics trade press whenever EDA was mentioned.
He was also a strong proponent of system-level design,
often called Electronic System Level (ESL), which provides
an even higher abstraction level than RTL and enables
engineers to design both hardware and software.
Finally, Smith launched Gary Smith EDA in 2006 with
several other former Gartner Dataquest analysts. Today the
company is a provider of market intelligence and advisory
services for the global EDA market. The company offers
market share reports, research reports, an annual “What to
see at DAC” (Design Automation Conference) list, Wallcharts
that depict EDA vendor classifications, and strategic
consulting services.
Smith was the founder and chief analyst at Gary Smith EDA
(GSEDA) since 2006. Prior to GSEDA, Smith was chief
analyst at Dataquest (later known as Gartner Dataquest)
beginning in 1994.
Outside of work, Smith was an accomplished musician,
and he played bass guitar for the Los Gatos Blues Band.
He was also a member of the Full Disclosure Blues Band,
which had its debut at DAC 2001 and reprised its showcase
performances at many subsequent DAC conferences.
Smith’s interests also included Eastern and Western
philosophies and religions, travel, history, reading, visiting
libraries and time with family.
Born in Stockton, California, Smith grew up in the San
Joaquin Valley. He earned a bachelor of science degree
in engineering from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis,
Md. After 6 years of active duty in Vietnam, he embarked
on a career in semiconductors starting in sales for a variety
of companies, including National Electronics, International
Rectifier, TRW, Signetics, Telmos, and Plessey. At Plessey,
he went back into engineering as business unit manager for
ASICs, which then represented some of the first attempts at
customer-designed ICs.
A special Gary Smith Memorial Scholarship has been set up
with San Jose State University. Guardian Scholars serves
former foster and homeless youth attending San Jose State
University. In addition DAC will enable the Gary Smith
Memorial Scholarship students to attend DAC. To make a
gift, please visit http://www.garysmitheda.com/memory.
At LSI Logic, Smith became a CAD methodologist as well as
an evangelist for the emerging register-transfer level (RTL)
design methodology. This design methodology, which was
widely adopted in the late 1980s and early 1990s, allowed
engineers to work at a much higher level of abstraction than
gate-level schematics. This breakthrough made possible the
design of chips with hundreds of millions of transistors.

WORKSHOP 1: DAC WORKSHOP ON COMPUTING IN HETEROGENEOUS,
AUTONOMOUS ‘N’ GOAL-ORIENTED ENVIRONMENTS (CHANGE)
Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm | | Room: 19AB | | Event Type: Workshop
Track: Embedded Systems, Design | | Topic Area: Emerging Technologies, General Interest,
Reconfigurable Systems
ORGANIZERS:
Self-aware computer systems are the key technology to succeed in doing
this. They will be able to configure, heal, optimize, improve interaction and
protect themselves without the need for human intervention, exploiting
abilities that allow them to automatically find the best way to accomplish
a given goal with the resources at hand. Within this context, imagine
a revolutionary computing system that can observe its own execution
and optimize its behavior around the external environment, user’s and
application’s needs.
Marco Santambrogio - Politecnico di Milano, Italy
Hank Hoffmann - Univ. of Chicago, IL
As the push for parallelism continues to increase the number of cores
on a chip, system design has become incredibly complex; optimizing
for performance and power efficiency is now nearly impossible for the
application programmer. To assist the programmer, a variety of techniques
for optimizing performance and power at runtime have been developed,
but many employ the use of speculative threads or performance counters.
These approaches result in stolen cycles, or the use of an extra core, and
such expensive penalties can greatly reduce the potential gains.
The Self-Aware computing research leverages the new balance of resources
to improve performance, utilization, reliability and programmability. Within
this context, the proposed workshop is intended to present innovative works
describing:
Within this context imagine a revolutionary computing system that can
observe its own execution and optimize its behavior around a user’s or
application’s needs. Imagine a programming capability by which users can
specify their desired goals rather than how to perform a task, along with
constraints in terms of an energy budget, a time constraint, or simply a
preference for an approximate answer over an exact answer.
- Self-aware Operating Systems
- Autonomous self-aware computer architecture
- Adaptive algorithm and distributed self-training algorithms
- Biologically inspired systems
Imagine further a computing system that performs better according to a
user’s preferred goal the longer it runs an application. Such an architecture
will enable, for example, a handheld radio or a cell phone that can run cooler
the longer the connection time. Or, a system that can perform reliably and
continuously in a range of environments by tolerating hard and transient
failures through self healing.

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are characterized by the strong interactions
among cyber components and dynamic physical components. CPS system
examples include automotive and transportation systems, smart home,
building and community, smart battery and energy systems, surveillance
systems, cyber-physical biochip, and wearable devices. Due to the deeply
complex intertwining among different components, CPS designs pose
fundamental challenges in multiple aspects such as performance, energy,
security, reliability, fault tolerance and flexibility. Tackling these challenges
necessitates high performance design automation techniques.

WORKSHOP 3: SYSTEM-TO-SILICON PERFORMANCE MODELING AND
ANALYSIS - POWER, TEMPERATURE AND RELIABILITY
Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm | | Room: 17AB | | Event Type: Workshop
Track: Embedded Systems, Design | | Topic Area: Cyber-Physical Systems,
System Architectures & SoC, Codesign & System Design
ORGANIZERS:
Main topics:
Adam Morawiec - ECSI, Belmont, France
Laurent Maillet-Contoz - STMicroelectronics, Grenoble, France
Kim Grüttner - OFFIS – Institute for Information Technology,
Oldenburg, Germany
Gjalt de Jong - ArchWorks, Diegem, Belgium
• Extra-functional property modeling (power, temperature, reliability, aging, …)
• Power and temperature analysis at SoC level: future needs and
requirements
• Evolution and extensions of standards like UPF, IP-XACT to express extrafunctional properties
• Power and temperature simulation and analysis at system-level
• System level reliability and aging models
• Reliability from transistor to RTL level: e.g. NBTI models including basic
physical properties
The integration of heterogeneous electronic systems composed of SW and
HW requires not only a proper handling of system functionality, but also an
appropriate expression and analysis of various extra-functional properties:
timing, energy consumption, thermal behavior, reliability, cost and others
as well as performance aspects related to caching, non-determinism,
probabilistic effects.
SPEAKERS:

The workshop addresses cross-domain aspects related to the design and
verification framework covering methodology, interoperable tools, flows,
interfaces and standards that enable formalization, specification, annotation
and refinement of functional and extra-functional properties of a system.
Special emphasis will be given to formalization and expression of power,
temperature, reliability, degradation and aging.
Several research and industry efforts address (parts of) the problem.
However, there is a need for community-wide cooperation to establish
a holistic vision on extra-functional property treatment, and to agree on
research and development directions and further on validation of applicable
solutions and standardization.
This event will support collaboration between main actors from system and
microelectronics industry, EDA and research.
The workshop is inviting submissions of short abstracts on industrial and
scientific work in progress and practical solution and experiences.

As more low-power and internet-connected gadgets and sensors are
integrated into our lives, there still is not a consensus of how to co-design
these. This workshop focuses on three areas of the internet of things (IoT),
and in particular the design and automation aspects within them. These
areas, which will likely be key to advancements in the IoT arena, are:
security, low-power, and system design. The workshop features a set of
invited speakers and panels. With our speakers, we strive to understand key
issues and known solutions within the above mentioned areas of research
and product design. End goals of the workshop are to understand about
design and automation needs and issues beyond what may be directly
visible to the DAC community and try to bring them in towards a solution.

LPIRC 2016 has three tracks. The first two tracks (1) offloading and (2) nonoffloading are the same as in LPIRC 2015. The test images are sent through
a network. In the third, new track, the test images are shown on a computer
screen and the contestants must use cameras to obtain the input images.
The second Low-Power Image Recognition Challenge (LPIRC) will be held
at the 2016 Design Automation Conference in Austin, Texas. Cameras
have become available in many embedded and mobile systems, including
vehicles, smartphones, wearable devices, and aerial robots. It is desirable to
have the capability of detecting and identifying objects in images acquired
from such devices. Since energy is limited in mobile systems, efficiency and
energy conservation are primordial.
The first LPIRC was held at the 2015 Design Automation Conference on
June 7, 2015 in San Francisco, California. Thirty-four people registered
as ten teams from four different countries. In total, twenty solutions were
presented.
A special session at the International Conference on Computer-Aided Design
2015 was devoted to the introduction and description of the first LPIRC.
The top two winners of the first LPIRC presented their solutions.

General Interest, System Software
Few industries are as primed for radical change in the years
ahead as the worldwide automotive market. Advanced driver
assistance system (ADAS) features are increasingly common
in entry-level/affordable new car models, and today’s
high-end vehicles commonly receive over-the-air software
updates and feature semi-autonomous driving functionality.
Meanwhile, Silicon Valley start-ups and established auto
OEMs alike are rushing to deliver the first true “self-driving”
cars. Among the most critical technologies driving this
revolution are:
Biography: Lars Reger is Chief Technology Officer of NXP’s
Automotive business unit. NXP is the global technology
leader in the secure connected car with a market leading
product portfolio in secure and smart car access, car
infotainment, advanced driver assistance systems, invehicle networks, and sensors. As CTO, Lars is responsible
for managing R&D and new business activities for NXP
Automotive.
Prior to joining NXP in 2008, Lars gained deep insight into
the microelectronics industry – with a strong focus on the

• Highly integrated CMOS-based radar solutions that can
replace today’s bulky, power-consuming hardware for
radar-based ADAS with sensors the size of postage stamps
– for self-driving cars cocoons of such sensors are needed
to enable a reliable 360 surround view of the vehicle
environment
• Gigabit Ethernet in-car communication technology enabling
deterministic performance and real-time transport of
massive
data sets.
• Advancements in vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-toinfrastructure (V2I) technologies that support secure data
exchanges between high-speed vehicles and roadside
infrastructure.
• Increasingly rapid adoption of next-generation RFID and
Near Field Communication (NFC) technologies for a broad
range of connectivity innovations.
However, despite the rapid advancement of these Connected
Car technologies, the era of autonomous vehicles cannot
truly arrive until consumers really trust that their vehicles are
safe against hacking. This discussion will present an indepth examination of the specific technologies driving the
autonomous vehicles revolution of the future, while detailing
the security, reliability and safety requirements necessary to
realize its full potential.

Davor Frank - Solarflare Communications, New York, NY
In today’s financial markets there is a constant, growing trend in the amount
of data and the speed at which that data must be handled. Participants in
these markets are confronted with ingesting and processing this data in
an increasingly competitive landscape where the speed at which this data
is processed is one of the major drivers of success. Algorithmic trading
systems are deployed to address this challenge, but traditional software
running on commodity hardware is not sufficient to maintain a competitive
advantage in this environment. Increasingly, organizations are turning to
custom hardware to address these problems. In this session, you will hear
industry practitioners discuss how hardware solutions are being utilized in
this space.

Timing in IP and at chip level in recent technology nodes has become
increasingly complex. It has become necessary to incorporate many more
physical effects into the modeling of timing, and this has affected both
signoff and optimization in significant ways. This session will cover variation
modeling in signoff, as well as optimization concerns like path sensitivity
analysis and power-aware vt and size optimization techniques. Both chip
and IP level timing closure and timing constraint management will be
discussed.

SKY TALK: WIRELESS IMPLANTABLE MICROSYSTEMS: MINIMALLY
INVASIVE INTERFACES TO THE BRAIN
Time: 1:00pm - 1:30pm | | Room: DAC Pavilion - Booth 1839 | | Event Type: SKY Talk
Track: IoT, Embedded Systems | | Topic Area: Circuit Design, Cyber-Physical Systems,
Emerging Technologies
Smart and connected medical implants are the next frontier in the Internet
of Things (IoT) and are set to revolutionize healthcare. Advancing our
ability to interface technology with biological environments will enable
patients to be monitored and receive treatment at home, and in the long
term, have chronically implanted electronic devices seamlessly integrate
with their everyday lives. As an example, clinically viable and minimally
invasive neural interfaces stand to transform disease care for patients of
neurological conditions. Recently there has been an explosion of research
in Brain-Machine Interfaces (BMI) that has shown incredible results in using
electronic signals from the motor cortex of the brain to control artificial limbs,
providing hope for patients with spinal cord injuries. A major impediment to
clinical translation is that state-of-the-art clinical neural interfaces are large,
wired and require open-skull operation which leaves the patient at risk of
infection and unable to move. Future, less invasive interfaces with increased
numbers of electrodes, signal processing, and wireless connectivity will
enable advanced prosthetics, disease control and completely new usercomputer interfaces.
Substantial improvements in neural implant longevity are needed to
transition BMI systems from research labs to clinical practice. In this talk
I will describe the development of a minimally invasive, wireless neural
implant to enable chronic and stable neural recording. The implant is based
on micro-electrocorticography (μECoG), an electrophysiological technique
where electrical potentials are recorded from the surface of the cerebral
cortex, reducing cortical scarring when compared with microelectrode
recording techniques that pierce into the cortex. Wireless powering
and readout are combined with a flexible, microfabricated antenna and
electrode array with an ultra-low power integrated circuit. The low power
consumption of the integrated circuit enables remote powering well below
established IEEE and FCC safety limits, while the small size and flexibility
of the implant minimizes the foreign body response. The improved implant
safety and longevity gives wireless μECoG excellent prospects to become
the technology of choice for clinically relevant neural interfaces in the
foreseeable future.

The path dictated by The Learning Curve (Moore’s Law being one version)
has led to systems of ever-increasing sophistication. Cloud and IoT
represent two of the latest manifestations of this trend which bring us
increased hardware and software complexity, shorter product lifecycles, and
growing security concerns all of which eventually lead to steadily increasing
compute and bandwidth requirements during design and operation phases
for systems and networks. This session explores evolution of infrastructure
from three perspectives: (i) digital enterprise to enable ideation, realization
and utilization to achieve business goals in the age of IoT; (ii) virtualization
of the network edge a.k.a. Fog Computing which underwrites the growth of
IoT; (iii) embedding of security in individual workloads migrated to a cloud
environment.

DESIGN TRACK: EFFECTIVE USE OF A MEMORY PROTECTION UNIT (MPU) IN
SAFETY-CRITICAL C/C++ CODE
Time: 3:30pm - 5:00pm | | Room: Ballroom E | | Event Type: Embedded Tutorial
Track: Embedded Systems, Automotive | | Topic Area: System Software, System Architectures & SoC
A memory protection unit (MPU) is a hardware module present in some
microcontrollers, to enable software to control access to areas of physical
memory known as regions. These regions can vary in size and typically can
be as small as 32 bytes, in modern MPUs. Current approaches to use an
MPU in an RTOS environment do not have enough flexibility to leverage
this small region size granularity, to provide more effective data protection
at the data object level or even at the software component level. The set of
memory areas (regions) that a given application thread (task) is supposed to
access may be different at different points in the execution of the thread, and
it depends on the software components that the thread invokes.
8
This tutorial will teach a new approach for using modern MPUs more
effectively in C/C++ code. This approach is based on component-level and
object-level data protection. Concrete code examples for the Kinetis MPU
and the ARMv7-M MPU will be presented.

TUTORIAL 1: MODEL-BASED DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF AUTOMOTIVE
CYBER PHYSICAL SYSTEMS
Time: 10:30am - 12:00pm | | Room: 12AB | | Event Type: Monday Tutorial
Track: Automotive, Embedded Systems | | Topic Area: Cyber-Physical Systems,
Codesign & System Design, Modeling, Simulation & Timing
ORGANIZERS:
The first part of the tutorial will talk about automotive E/E architectures. On
computation side, typical ECUs and the real-time operating systems will be
covered. On networking side, various communication bus protocols such as
Ethernet and CAN will be discussed. Based on this, it will be illustrated how
the performance of automotive E/E architecture is evaluated (using formal
analysis and simulation) in the current state of practice. Finally, current
research challenges will be illustrated with a number of examples.
Dip Goswami - Eindhoven Univ. of Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands
Mohammad Abdullah Al Faruque - Univ. of California, Irvine, CA
Arne Hamann - Robert Bosch GmbH, Renningen, Germany
Typical automotive architectures consist of over 100 ECUs (electronic
control units) communicating over a system made up of several buses and
gateways implementing different protocols such as FlexRay, CAN, Ethernet
etc. Scheduling policies and parameters need to be specified for the ECUs
and the buses. Control applications are designed using a model-based
approach using Matlab/Simulink targeting such architectures. Controller
synthesis problems subject to take into account platform-specific properties.
The second part of the tutorial will talk about various control/architectures
co-design procedure to perform various trade-off analysis between resource
usage and control performance. In particular, we will illustrate how a richer
sampling scheme can be exploited to enable trade-off between the resource
and performance with various automotive use-cases.
In particular, the timing constraints derived from the control design need
to be translated into platform constraints to be satisfied by the controlrelated tasks and messages. In practice, the controller and its embedded
implementation design are often performed in isolation. As pointed out
by some of the recent research results, such design isolation often results
in large resource over-dimensioning which is critical for cost-sensitive
automotive domain.
The third part of the tutorial will talk about control and battery management
system (BMS) co-design in an Electric Vehicle (EV). To be particular, we will
focus on the battery lifetime and efficiency as the design constraints in view
of an industrial use-case of EV climate control. This part will discuss how the
abstraction and complexity of the modeling are important and how it may
affect the control functionality in terms of performance, computation, and
memory resource requirements.
One essence of cyber-physical design paradigm is to bridge the gap
between control theory and their embedded implementations by so-called
control/architecture co-design. A large body of recent works has shown
potential benefit of such co-design approach. In this tutorial, we will
illustrate several co-design procedures for the automotive cyber-physical
systems where the control designs are in sync with the implementation
architecture and the architecture design efficiently accommodates all control
performance specifications.

ORGANIZER:
Driver development is the focus of the second section of the tutorial
(Posedge Software). An overview of development of both static and dynamic
drivers (Loadable Kernel Modules, or LKMs) will be covered. A virtual
platform environment will be used to highlight key points in the development
methodology, including co-debug of driver software and peripheral hardware
models.
Larry Lapides - Imperas Software Ltd., Dublin, CA
Key topics: Linux for embedded systems, including SMP Linux. Driver
development for Linux, both static and dynamic (Loadable Kernel Modules,
or LKMs) drivers. Testing of Linux and drivers.
Linux has become the general purpose operating system of choice for
embedded systems, and is almost always supported for high end SoCs
developed by the semiconductor vendors. Most vendors use the open
source Linux distribution, then build a custom distribution representing the
device tree supported for the specific SoC, and including the necessary
drivers for the peripherals on the SoC, as well as supporting other
customizations and unique features. The operating system is complicated
further with multicore processors and symmetric multiprocessor (SMP)
Linux. Just because everyone supports Linux, does not make porting and
bring up an easy task. To put it another way: Just because you get to the
Linux prompt doesn’t mean everything is working.
The final section (Imperas) will discuss the development of a robust test
environment using the virtual platform technology. The virtual platform
provides a complementary approach to porting and bring up on hardware.
The benefits of controllability, observability and repeatability for virtual
platform use will be covered. Specific OS-aware tools will also be
highlighted, plus other tools such as non-intrusive memory monitors and the
use of software assertions and code and functional coverage techniques for
the operating system and drivers.
SPEAKERS:
Zubair Lutfullah Kakakhel - Imagination Technologies Ltd., Leeds, United

This tutorial will be presented in three sections. In the first section (by
Imagination Technologies), the various components of bringing up Linux
on a new platform will be covered. These include the Bootrom, U-boot
bootloader, Linux Kernel and Linux Buildroot. A walk-through of bringing
up Linux on new hardware will be presented. The walk-through will also
introduce the various tools used to assist in completing board bring-up
easily.

SPEAKERS:
System-on-chip (SoC) complexity has been steadily growing in the last
several years due to ever increasing design integration and relentless pursuit
of Moore’s law by the semiconductor industry. Especially, the mobile SoCs
and server class SoCs have gone through huge transformations in their
capabilities in the last decade or so. This has led to many innovations in
designing and implementing the IPs that make up the systems.

Vivek Rajan - Intel Corp., Hillsboro, OR
The EDA industry has kept up with the pace and some companies have
recently launched major tool changes that offer higher capacity, turn-aroundtime and many advanced features that are needed for finfet and multipatterning process generations. In this tutorial, we will discuss how physical
design has evolved so far to meet the demand, and our vision for addressing
the needs of designers in the years to come.

FPGA prototypes can also be used as demo platforms to the SoC
customers for getting them interested in the chip you build and allow you
to work with them on improving features before chip tape-out.
Rob van Blommestein - S2C, Inc., San Jose, CA
Due to both simulation speed and modeling accuracy limitations, designers
are increasingly finding it difficult to rely only on software simulations to
verify that their hardware design is correct. Running your SoC design on
a FPGA prototype is the most reliable way to ensure that your design is
functionally correct.
However, FPGA prototyping does come with some challenges: Long
Bring-Up Time Performance Reusability Design Partitioning Debug-ability.
This tutorial will show how designers can address these challenges and
utilize FPGA prototyping to reach success. Real-word case studies will
be explored to exemplify specific ways how FPGA prototyping can be
optimized.
Early software and/or firmware development on FPGA prototypes,
pre-silicon, has become more important as many unforeseen software
bugs stem from the complexity of integrating operating system (OS),
applications, and hardware. An at-speed FPGA prototype allows for many
extra months of rigorous software development and testing at the crucial
software-hardware integration stage.
SPEAKERS:
Mon-Ren Chene - S2C, Inc., San Jose, CA
Bruno Bratti - Wave Computing, Campbell, CA
Allen Sha - M31 Technology Corp., Santa Clara, CA
FPGA prototyping is also critical if your SoC design utilizes many
commercial IPs making prototyping on FPGAs the most reliable method to
ensure all these IPs work well together.

64bit ARM Cortex-A57 platform as a case study. We then discuss a variety
of circuit-architecture techniques used to directly and indirectly reduce
voltage supply noise margins. High-density decap technology, active
decap, supply-resonance avoidance, operation-throttling and adaptive
clocking techniques to mitigate supply voltage noise. We also examine
techniques adopted to address process and temperature variability in
modern systems through the use of Critical Path Monitors (CPM) circuits,
and the Razor architecture. These techniques will be presented in the
context of production designs and their constraints for a system-aware
treatment of the subject.
Visvesh Sathe - Univ. of Washington, Seattle, WA
The past decade has seen a great deal of attention and effort focussed
on circuits, architectures and methodologies for energy-efficient and
low power computing across a broad range of applications from ultralow power devices to high-end servers. As designers continue to seek
and evaluate low power technologies to enable the next generation
of computing, the traditionally unheralded problem of voltage margin
minimization has emerged to become one of the most significant
sources of inefficiency and dissipation. Real-world integrated systems
are margined, or guard-banded to address many sources of noise and
variability including process, temperature, aging, and supply voltage noise
and offsets.
In the second section, we focus on Integrated Voltage Regulation (IVR)
circuits. As designers grapple with more aggressive voltage scaling in
the presence of supply variation, Integrated Voltage Regulation (IVR) has
emerged as the key to achieving fine spatio-temporal control of SoC
supply voltages. IVR has already been deployed for energy-efficient
operation in high-performance systems (Intel Haswell), and the trend
to incorporate IVR to support finer voltage domains continues. We
examine recent developments and challenges in the area of integrated
voltage regulation across the three major voltage regulator technologies:
switching-inductor converters, switched-capacitor converters, and lowdropout (linear) regulators.
The trend toward multiple, fine-grained voltage domains, and aggressively
voltage-scaled systems has exacerbated the problem. Voltage-margin
minimization is a central component of modern low power design. Indeed,
many recent low power efforts in the industry have moved beyond
methodology and circuit design to address voltage margin minimization!
In this tutorial, we propose a modern treatment of low-power design by
actively managing supply-voltage variations. In contrast with text-book
approaches, we examine a blend of well-established and emerging
solutions that have proven to be effective in real-world constrained
systems.
This tutorial provides an overview of low power circuit and architecture
techniques with a system-level context. It is designed to be readily
accessible to graduate students and practicing engineers alike, with a
blend of well-established and emerging approaches to low power design.
The tutorial is organized in two parts. In the first, we begin by analyzing
the main contributors toward voltage margins, including practical sources
that are related to IC test and product deployment. We closely examine
the source of voltage supply noise in particular, the dominant source of
voltage margining, presenting the power delivery network of the dual-core

behavior and logical analysis of failures are being incorporated with layout
analysis for finer pruning of diagnosis candidates. Hybrid approach of using
logical simulation in conjunction with circuit simulation resulted in better
isolation of front end and backend defects.
Enamul Amyeen - Intel Corp., Hillsboro, OR
Post Silicon diagnosis drives the isolation of manufacturing defects and
provides feedbacks for process improvement and is critical for enabling
Moore’s law and semiconductor technology scaling. Due to the increasing
complexity of nano-scale manufacturing fabrication, the need for faster rootcause of issues is essential for volume production ramp to meet the product
time to market demand.
Along with diagnosis technology improvements, complementary efforts
have been geared towards customized test content to improve diagnostic
resolution. We will review emerging techniques of learning based diagnosis
approach which combining with process sensitivity, DFM constraints, and
lithography simulation will be the key for driving the innovations for future
technology generations.
Over the last several years, many innovations have been made and novel
solutions are emerging for better and faster defect isolation. With the
advent of new transistor devices, lithography, and fabrication processes,
the demand for improving the defect isolation and faster yield learning will
continue to grow in coming years.
The tutorial is intended for engineers and test practitioners including
academics working in test and diagnosis, post silicon debug, fault isolation,
failure analysis, and manufacturing yield. The DAC audience will get the
opportunity to know the state of the art diagnosis technologies, and how
they are shaping the design and process evolution and manufacturing yield
learning in nano-scale era.
In this tutorial, we will review the basics of diagnosis approaches, and
advancements in post silicon diagnosis field.
In addition to diagnosis quality improvement, increased focus has been
made to volume processing of diagnosis results for yield learning. This
has resulted in introduction of new DFT technologies to obtain and
process massive amount of fail data, and to provide better controllability
and observability of failures to narrow down the defect suspects.
Diagnosis algorithms are optimized to provide speed-ups in analysis time.
Advancements are made in fault modeling to abstract the complex defect

However, a number of advanced defenses based on control-flow integrity,
code pointer integrity, and fine-grained memory randomization have been
recently proposed; some of them are based on hardware software co-design
principles to increase both efficiency and effectiveness.
Ahmad-Reza Sadeghi - Technische Univ. Darmstadt, Germany
Today we are facing an increasing dependency of our lives on IT systems.
The rapidly growing number of electronic devices of different form factors,
vast number of applications and services and the desire for continuous
connectivity has significantly increased both the software complexity and the
cyberattack surface, as millions of lines of codes are generated that can be
potentially vulnerable.
In this tutorial, we provide an overview of the state-of-the-art memory
exploitation techniques and defenses. We start with the main principles of
memory exploitation covering stack smashing, return-into-libc, and returnoriented programming. Next, we present modern defense techniques such
as control-flow integrity and memory randomization. In particular, we present
and discuss hardware-based defense techniques in this area of which some
have been recently incorporated into modern processors. In the second part
of this tutorial, we continue with a hands-on lab where attendees will have
the opportunity to construct proof-of-concept memory exploits.
In this context, memory corruption attacks play a vital role. They have
been persisting more than three decades and constitute a pre-dominant
attack vector on diverse computing platforms. Further, they are increasingly
launched against mobile and embedded devices.
While traditional attacks required the attacker to inject malicious code into
the memory space of an application, modern attacks only reuse existing
code. For instance, return-oriented programming combines small code
pieces to generate malicious programs based on benign program code.
Consequently, these attacks are highly challenging to detect, and apply
to Harvard-based architectures because no malicious code needs to be
injected. Traditional exploit mitigation defenses such as data execution
prevention and memory randomization cannot stop these attacks.

This tutorial will examine unique portable stimulus challenges such as linking
verification to diagnostics and software, portability to every platform, and
resource management.
Tom Anderson - Breker Verification Systems, Inc., San Jose, CA
Larry Melling - Cadence Design Systems, Inc., San Jose, CA
The tutorial will outline a set of common usage examples that emphasize
specific verification, reuse, and portability challenges. Verification challenges
include randomization of both data and control flow. Reuse challenges
include migrating tests from IP level to SoC. Portability challenges include
growing tests to improve coverage when running on faster platforms and
executing at the full platform speed. Finally, the tutorial will show how
portable stimulus can address the usage examples.
Portability of reusable test cases has long been a goal for semiconductor
verification and validation teams. No one wants to “reinvent the wheel”
by having to rewrite similar tests again and again. The widely accepted
Accellera Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) standard enabled reuse
of testbench components and constrained-random tests at the IP and block
level, but limitations in terms of reuse at subsystem and full-chip level,
and lack of portability across execution platforms, required a fresh look at
addressing the portable stimulus and test challenge.
Attendees will learn:
• Unique challenges for a portable stimulus solution
• How a PSS model can capture complex use cases
• How a PSS model enables automation
• How a PSS model can leverage existing low-level sequences or drivers
• How a PSS model enables execution of tests across multiple platforms
• How coverage is defined within a PSS model
The upcoming Accellera portable test and stimulus standard (PSS)
specification will permit the creation of a reusable model for a variety of
users across different levels of integration under different configurations.
This model will enable the generation of different test implementations for
multiple execution platforms, including IP simulation, full system-on-chip
(SoC) simulation, emulation, FPGA prototyping, and silicon. With such
a standard in place, EDA vendors can produce tools that automatically
generate stimulus, results checks, and coverage metrics tuned for a
particular target platform.

1. IoT market landscape: present and future business opportunities.
2. IoT architectures: from data to services.
The Internet of Things has become the Internet of Everything and the
Internet of All Things. It is predicted that by the end of 2020, the number
of smart objects globally connected will reach 212 billions. Machine-tomachine (M2M) internet traffic is expected to reach up to 45% of all internet
traffic. By its universal and all-inclusive nature, IoT growth over the past 5
years has been enabled by the development, design, and implementation of
a heterogeneous set of data communication architectures.
3. IoT common standards: CoAP, MQTT, AMQO, DSS, HTTP, etc.
Why is CoAP more energy-efficient than good old HTTP?
4. IoT technologies:
a. Naming and addressing: EPC and IPv6
b. Hardware platforms: Arduino, Rasberry PI, BeagleBone, etc.,
c. Operating systems: Contiki OS, TinyOS, LiteOS, Android, iOS, etc.
In its simplest and most direct form, the IoT communication stack is
comprised of three layers: the sensor/actuator layer, the network layer, and
the service layer.
5. IoT networking:
a. Routing protocols for low-power and lossy networks: RPL.
b. Physical layer: IEEE 802.15.4, 6LowPAN, BlueTooth Low Energy,
ZigBee, EPCglobal, Z-wave, IEEE 802.11 (WiFi), Ethernet, MoCA, etc.
c. Physical link metrics: energy-efficiency, data rate, footprint, M2M
synchronization, clock-data recovery, etc.
d. Emerging technologies: 5G, LoRA, sub-GHz, PIC, etc.
e. IoT networking metrics: range, data rate, power, reliability, cost
For each of these layers, many, sometimes too many, protocols and
standards have been proposed and implemented with some being derived
from existing networking and data communication protocols, including those
of the Internet of People, while others are novel and meant to address the
specific technical issues of the M2M internet.
6. IoT software platforms:
a. Embedded systems
b. Sensor fusion platforms
c. Smart gateways
d. And on to the cloud: Big Data and IoT
The objective of this tutorial is to help the DAC audience make sense of the
alphabet soup of platforms, protocols, standards, services, and architectures
currently in use or under development for IoT.
The tutorial will take a holistic view of IoT with the goal of providing the
attendees with the essential information needed to configure an IoT service,
comprising a physical layer, a communication layer, and a software layer.
Such configuration will of course depend on the IoT use case itself and
several real-world use cases will be presented.
7. IoT use cases:
a. Building automation
b. Health and fitness
c. Logistics
d. Energy
8. IoT future challenges:
a. Interoperability
b. Mobility
c. Scalability
d. Security and privacy
Plenty of time will be allocated to Q & A.

3D ICs, after a long wait, is now a reality. Through-silicon-vias (TSV) are
found *inside* the bare dies of memory cube products, and they will soon
find their ways to logic dies. Moreover, monolithic 3D IC (M3D) technology
promises ultra-high density vertical integration that does not rely on micronscale TSVs, thanks to its nano-scale monolithic inter-tier vias (MIV). This
tutorial presents proven physical design and EDA technologies that produce
high-quality power, performance, area (PPA), and reliability results for both
TSV-based and monolithic 3D ICs.
Our target audiences includes:
(1) EDA vendors that will deliver much-needed 3D IC physical
design tools,
(2) Design engineers who desire to build high-quality 3D IC layouts and
architectures,
(3) Device engineers who want to offer optimized devices and interconnects
for 3D ICs,
(4) Process engineers who are willing to work with designers to improve 3D
IC yield and cost, and
(5) Managers who have the power to make it all happen.

Topic Area: General Interest, System Architectures & SoC
These techniques have the potential to add capabilities to our
systems that are both different and more powerful, than those come
from scaling and Moore alone.
Modern electronics does amazing things, but biology routinely
performs feats no current electronics can match. Every animal can
learn on short timescales, defend against unforeseen threats, selfassemble and repair, all with great resilience. The shortest path to
incorporating these features in our gadgets is to understand how
biology works, then adapt these techniques to the semiconductor
world. Towards this end, biologists are in the midst of reconstructing
and understanding the entire nervous system of small animals,
while device physicists and software folks work out the devices and
algorithms that might duplicate or better what biology has long done.
This talk will give an overview of the investigation into biological
systems, and some hints, based on our current understanding, of
how this might be incorporated into our electronic gizmos.
Biography: Lou Scheffer got his degrees in EE from Caltech and
Stanford, then did IC design for HP, followed by CAD software
development at Cadence. Eight years ago, he switched fields to
biology, where he now studies the structure and function of the brain.
Working at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Lou is part of an
effort using electron microscopy to reconstruct the detailed circuitryevery neuron and synapse - of the brain of the fruit fly. Lou is the
author of numerous papers on EE, physics, SETI, and biology, plus
two books, and 35 patents.

Biography: Sameer Halepete is the Vice President of VLSI
Engineering at NVIDIA Corporation. He obtained his BTech degree
in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology,
Bombay in 1993 and his MS degree in Electrical Engineering from
Stanford University in 1995. He joined Sun Microsystems’ Advanced
Development group in 1995 where he did research in ultra-lowthreshold-voltage CMOS circuits. In 1996, he joined Transmeta
Corporation where he worked on several generations of VLIW
processors that enabled dynamic binary translation. He joined NVIDIA
Corporation in 2002 to help build the company’s first streaming
multiprocessor based GPU which ushered the era of general purpose
computing on graphics processors. In 2007, he became Vice
President of ASIC Design and has since led several successful GPU
projects and multiple successful collaborations with EDA companies
to push the state of the art of graphics processors.
The ever-increasing performance demands of performance visual
and accelerated computing has resulted in GPUs becoming some
of the most complex ASICs being built today. These multi-billion
transistor processors push design technologies to their limits and
require incredibly robust implementation methodologies. At the same
time, there are new performance demands from both the traditional
source of gaming thanks to higher resolution displays and virtual
reality applications as well as new GPU uses like deep learning and
autonomous driving. While we’ve been able to ride the performance,
power and cost gains from process scaling over the last two decades
to deliver GPUs with ever increasing capabilities, this rate of process
scaling improvement is slowing down. It is clear that the rate of
innovations in the design implementation areas will need to pick up if
we are to keep delivering performance gains to our customers at the
historical rate. In this talk we’ll cover the state of the art in visual and
accelerated computing, the design approaches we use to implement
these highly complex processors and finally propose ideas that will
ensure that in spite of slowing process scaling, we’re able to continue
to deliver GPUs of ever-increasing capabilities over the next decade.

For most classes of computing systems the distinction between low-power
and high-performance design is outdated: from smartphones to cloud
servers, systems-on-chip must deliver both. At the tail end of Dennard’s
scaling, this is becoming an increasingly tall order. Meanwhile, the limits
of application parallelism prevents computer architects from scaling up
performance by simply integrating more homogeneous processor cores.
Instead, the quest for energy-efficient performance requires the integration
of a variety of computing engines, including different kinds of processors
and many specialized-hardware accelerators, leading to the rise of
heterogeneous architectures.

SKY TALK: RISC-V: INSTRUCTION SETS WANT TO BE FREE
Time: 1:00pm - 1:30pm | | Room: DAC Pavilion - Booth 1839 | | Event Type: SKY Talk
Track: IoT, IP | | Topic Area: System Architectures & SoC, Codesign & System Design, General Interest
This talk will cover the technical features of the RISC-V ISA design,
which has the goals of scaling from the tiniest implementations for IoT
up to the largest warehouse-scale computers, with support for extensive
customization. We’ll also describe three different industry-competitive opensource cores developed at UC Berkeley, all written in Chisel, a productive
new open-source hardware design language. Finally, we’ll describe the
uptake of RISC-V and the development of the RISC-V ecosystem, including
the RISC-V Foundation.
The most important interface in a computer system is the instruction set
architecture (ISA) as it connects software to hardware. So, given the
prevalence of open standards for almost all other important interfaces, why
is the ISA still proprietary? We argue that a free ISA is a necessary precursor
to future hardware innovation, and there’s no good technical reason not to
have free, open ISAs just as we have free, open networking standards and
free, open operating systems.
The free and open RISC-V ISA began development at UC Berkeley in 2010,
with the frozen base user ISA standard released in May 2014, and has since
seen rapid uptake around the globe, including the first commercial shipments.

Sachin Sapatnekar, Deepashree Sengupta, Vivek Mishra - Univ. of
Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN
Sheldon X.-D. Tan - Univ. of California, Riverside, CA
Reliability has become a significant challenge for design of current
nanometer integrated circuits (ICs). Existing technologies for ensuring
reliability will not be able to satisfy the competing requirements for future ICs
as they typically operate in one layer under worst-case assumptions about
other layers in the design stacks. This potentially leads to inefficiencies that
will make these techniques impractical in future fabrication processes. This
session will present several recent advances in holistic cross-layer design
approaches for reliability management and mitigation. The presented topics
range from cross-layer modeling and optimization for electromigration
reliability; design for soft-error reliability considering device, circuit and
architecture levels; reliability and modeling and optimization for many
long-term failure effects at physics, circuits, and architecture intersections
and cross-layer variability mitigation techniques for 10nm and beyond
technologies.

of the harvesters themselves, what’s needed to convert the notoriously
unreliable power from harvesters into something usable by a conventional
system, and finally how might future compute systems be structured to take
better advantage of the harvester behavior.

The speakers in this session are industry leaders from foundry, library and
design arenas. They will address the prevalent and emerging problems in
electrical sign-off, and the solution strategies being developed and deployed
within their purview.
Scott Taylor - Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., Austin, TX
Electrical (timing and power) sign-off of nanometer chips is an increasingly
complex and arduous task. Multiple factors contribute to the difficulty:
increased process variations leading to an explosion of process corners
and OCV problems, significant waveform effects on circuit and interconnect
delay, multi-vdd designs, ultra-low voltage operation, increased on-chip
voltage fluctuations, and signifcant inter-play between chip and package.
These challenges are faced across the entire design ecosystem: foundries,
library providers, design and IP teams, and EDA vendors. Innovative
methods are required in library modeling, design practices and sign-off
recipes, and EDA tools and methodologies for successful tape-outs and
good yields.

It is an exciting time in packaging, with new approaches emerging
continuously. The driving force is to support consumer, mobile applications
that require thinner, higher density packages without sacrificing the
performance of the IC. The emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) will only
increase the pressure for continued innovation in packaging.

Today there is a wide range of packaging including: Wafer Level Chip Scale,
Wafer Level Fan Out, Panel Level Fan Out, Chip Last Fan Out, Flip Chip,
interposer 2.5D, 3D and the list goes on and on. So will one win out or can
the ecosystem continue to support an ever broadening range of styles and
custom approaches? This panel will present views on this pressing issue
from the designer perspective, packaging, tools, and foundry.

WHAT’S THE FUTURE OF DFT?
Time: 4:30pm - 5:30pm | | Room: 18AB | | Event Type: Panel | | Track: EDA
Topic Area: Test & Verification
MODERATOR:
Shawn Blanton - Carnegie Mellon Univ., Pittsburgh, PA
ORGANIZER:
Rob Aitken - ARM, Inc., San Jose, CA
Design-for-testability (DFT) has progressed over the last 25 years from an
expensive adder to be included only if quality demanded it to a mandatory
feature of every design. High quality tools are available from EDA vendors
and there is a substantial and diverse body of research behind them. Still,
when most people think of DFT, they think of scan chains, and scan-based
DFT seems to be a done deal.
Given that, what is the future of the DFT business? There are many
challenges that get lumped together as part of test (yield, performance/
power characterization/optimization, debug/diagnosis/validation, analog
measurement, DFM compliance, etc.), so DFT is more than just building
scan chains, but is that where the future lies? The panel looks at the issues
and explores how we might expect the DFT business to evolve going
forward.

FUTURE VEHICULAR NETWORKS - SAFETY AND SECURITY
Time: 3:30pm - 5:30pm | | Room: 18CD | | Event Type: Invited Presentations
Track: Automotive, Security | | Topic Area: Cyber-Physical Systems
CHAIR:
34.1 Cooperation or Competition? Coexistence of Safety
and Security in Next-Generation Ethernet-Based Automotive
Networks (3:30)
Chung-Wei Lin, Huafeng Yu - Toyota InfoTechnology Center, Mountain
View, CA
Selma Saidi - Technical Univ. of Hamburg, Germany
ORGANIZER:
Rolf Ernst - Technische Univ. Braunschweig, Germany
Next-generation vehicular networks are anticipated to comprise a single
high-bandwidth communication backbone, which is used by both
critical and non-critical traffic. These networks require advanced safety
mechanisms, such as isolation between different criticality levels and
fail-operational network behavior to provide a reliable communication
infrastructure, e.g. for highly automated and autonomous driving.
34.2 Towards Fail-Operational Ethernet Based In-Vehicle
Networks (4:00)
Mischa Möstl, Daniel Thiele, Rolf Ernst - Technische Univ. Braunschweig,
Germany
34.3 Secure Updates for Automotive ECUs (4:30)
Lars Wolleschensky - ESCRYPT Inc., Ann Arbor, MI
André Osterhues - ESCRYPT Inc., Bochum, Germany
In the future, vehicular networks will even extend beyond the individual
vehicle. In vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure scenarios, cars
become part of a larger network. Connected vehicles have strict security
requirements to guarantee authenticity, integrity, and confidentiality of the
data entering and leaving the vehicle.
34.4 Extending Communication Beyond Vehicles - The Road To
Automated Driving (5:00)
Steffen Müller, Timo van Roermund, Mark Steigemann - NXP
Semiconductors, Hamburg, Germany
This session presents new ideas and discusses advanced methods to
implement and analyze the safety and security of next-generation
vehicular networks.

DESIGN TRACK: THE GREAT SIMULATION/EMULATION FACEOFF
Time: 3:30pm - 5:00pm | | Room: Ballroom E | | Event Type: Panel | | Track: Design, EDA
Topic Area: Modeling, Simulation & Timing, Test & Verification, General Interest
MODERATOR:
John Sanguinetti, a noted simulation expert, will serve as moderator and
have questions to stimulate the discussion, including how formal verification
provides an orthogonal approach to simulation’s capabilities. Conversely,
he will press panelists to explain why emulation doesn’t support formal
verification as yet and, instead, focuses on execution performance. He
will question the panel on the usability of each for hardware development
and hardware/software integration, verification and the flexibility of both.
Availability is another question that will be asked of the panel –– are both
available to every engineer or used as a team tool? And, what are the
training requirements? Cost considerations will be explored as the panel
attempts to sort through the total cost of each, the cost per engineer
and the cost per upgrade. Finally, John Sanguinetti will ask each panelist
what is missing from the verification flow, such as emulation’s inability to
offer support for analog and whether that will be possible in the future. Or,
whether it will be a long-term hindrance.
John Sanguinetti - Adapt-IP, Campbell, CA
From all appearances, emulation is about to take over domination of the
verification space from the 30-year old work horse, simulation. The number
of use models is expanding, as well as features and capabilities. Simulation
experts, however, aren’t eager to wave the white flag and, in fact, point to
the rapid adoption of formal verification that continues simulation’s value.
Questions to be debated:
• Will emulation take over from simulation and be the dominant tool in a
verification flow?
• If not emulation, where does simulation go to continue to be an effective
verification tool?
• Does augmenting simulation with emulation or formal verification provide
the most benefit?
PANELISTS:
Alex Starr - Advanced Micro Devices, Inc., Boxborough, MA
Frank Schirmeister - Cadence Design Systems, Inc., San Jose, CA
Ronny Morad - IBM Research - Haifa, Israel
Stephen Bailey - Mentor Graphics Corp., Longmont, CO
Dave Kelf - OneSpin Solutions GmbH, San Jose, CA
• Which combination will dominate future verification flows?
The format will be entertaining but informative with differing views and some
conflict. Panelists will describe the various use models for emulation and
explain how and why simulation has been so effective for so long. They will
debate whether the simulation/formal verification flow works more effectively
than a simulation/emulation flow. Finally, they will be asked to present their
views on the evolution of verification in general and predictions about what’s
coming next.

KEYNOTE: THE CHALLENGE TO DEVELOP
TRULY GREAT PRODUCTS
Mark Papermaster - Advanced Micro Devices, Inc., Sunnyvale, CA
T
ime: 9:00am - 10:00am | | Room: Ballroom A | | Track: Design, EDA
Topic Area: General Interest
Biography: Mark Papermaster is chief technology officer
and senior vice president at AMD, responsible for corporate
technical direction, and AMD intellectual property (IP) and
system-on-chip (SOC) product research and development.
His more than 30 years of engineering experience includes
significant leadership roles managing the development of
a wide range of products, from mobile devices to highperformance servers. Before joining AMD in October 2011,
Papermaster was the leader of Cisco’s Silicon Engineering
Group, the organization responsible for silicon strategy,
architecture, and development for the company’s switching
and routing businesses.
Mark Papermaster, CTO and SVP of Technology and
Engineering at AMD, will take a closer look at various
challenges companies face when they set out to build
winning products. Drawing up on more than 30 years of
engineering experience, Mark explores innovation and what
defines a great product, as well as his thoughts on the role of
leadership to create an environment to enable both disruptive
thinking combined with strong execution. He will describe
three key elements, along with examples of his experience at
IBM, Apple, Cisco, and AMD.
The first is goal clarity and definition that will distinguish the
design as a great product. This requires discipline to think
through not just the product itself, but how it will be used.
The experience matters. The high level design then has to be
rigorous to lay out a plan of the enabling factors, and the big
problems to be solved.
In prior roles, Papermaster served as Apple senior vice
president of Devices Hardware Engineering, where he was
responsible for the iPod products, and iPhone hardware
development. He also held a number of senior leadership
positions at IBM, serving on the company’s Technical
Leadership Team and overseeing development of the
company’s key microprocessor and server technologies.
Second is establishing a team that’s set up for success.
Plotting out the right leadership, skills, geography, and
culture is key.
Specializing in electrical engineering, Papermaster received
his bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas and
master’s degree from the University of Vermont. He is
a member of the University of Texas Cockrell School of
Engineering Advisory Board, Olin College Presidents Council,
and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Finally, execution always has to be prioritized. You can’t
afford to miss the product’s market window. What you
measure and milestone is what you care about – it sets the
behavior of the team.
Mark will summarize by highlighting how the evolution of
innovation and great products of the last several decades
has set the stage for a huge inflection point in computing. We
are now entering the era of immersive computing which will
fundamentally change the role computing plays in our daily
lives.

Open source code transformed software development, and spawned makers
with low-cost hardware modules, mostly running on proprietary chips. Large
systems are moving toward open source - still, mostly on proprietary chips.
Open source processor core IP is now causing a stir. Is “open” an inevitable
future for chips, a change the industry needs? Does co-optimizing open
source software and hardware IP have benefits, pre-silicon? Or is open
source IP a distraction, a model that will not work on a large scale? What
lessons from other open efforts may help decide? Our panel will share their
experience, observations, and predictions.

Time: 1:00pm - 1:30pm | | Room: DAC Pavilion - Booth 1839 | | Event Type: SKY Talk
Track: Security, Embedded Systems | | Topic Area: Business
When it comes to computer security, attackers often seek out weaknesses
at the abstraction boundaries in a system. Therefore, boundaries between
layers such as the hardware, operating system, and application have a
significant security impact. This talk will address how security is influenced
by different dimensions of computing including hardware and software
abstractions and scale, along with how threat models can help to manage
this complexity.
48
It concludes with a perspective on the largest security problems of the day:
the ability for one entity to prove their security posture to another, simplifying
security, and addressing the talent shortage. This talk is accessible to
anyone interested in security and how it impacts the broad computing
ecosystem.

As driver assistance systems more and more advance towards automated
driving capabilities, the computational performance demanded by these
applications exceeds by far the demand of previous vehicle control systems.
Thus, these systems are increasingly based on heterogeneous parallel
hardware solutions, which allow to handle such compute intensive tasks.
At the same time, requirements of functional safety and security become
also more stringent. The challenge for the Design Automation community
is to provide suitable methodologies and tools that support developers in
handling this high design complexity. This special session discusses the
challenges of developing advanced driver assistance and automated driving
systems from the viewpoint of a vehicle manufacturer. Further, a system
supplier and a tool provider present current approaches as well as upcoming
solutions from system-level modeling to automated software distribution.

From the smartphones of today to the highly connected and smart IoT world
of tomorrow, wireless mobility and energy efficiency have risen to become
essential and dominant requirements. To deliver products and services that
offer fulfilling user experiences, ever deeper collaboration among ecosystem
players is called for. This is occurring while the underlying semiconductor
technology continues to advance and evolve in greater complexity from
devices to packaging to systems. An open platform of capabilities across
the system stack holds the potential to allow creation of optimized solutions
in the most cost-effective and flexible manner.We propose a special session
of three invited talks by ecosystem players to explore aspects of such a
collaborative design environment with focus on energy efficiency.
The players come from different layers of the system stack.

From floorplanning to routing, traditional physical design methodologies
are being challenged with increasingly complex and diverse constraints
brought about by the constant drum of feature scaling. This session focuses
on digital and analog design closure in the nanometer regime. The session
starts with a new floorplanning representation for analog layout designs,
and then moves to timing-driven placement via flip-flop and clock buffer
movement. Clock power for high-performance designs is then minimized
via flip-flop clustering and placement. This is followed by legalization and
detailed placement for advanced nodes handling multi-row height cells
and minimum implant area constraints. The session concludes with a layer
assignment algorithm for timing optimization.

Globalization of the semiconductor supply chain introduces vulnerabilities
in hardware designs such as hardware Trojans, IP piracy, and cloning.
Concurrently, there has been a rise in the ingenuity of attackers to exploit
them. This session is an assortment of attacks and defenses. The attacks
include Trojan-infected power management units, reverse engineering and
EM-based fault injection. The defenses range from high-level synthesis
for protection against Trojans, automated vulnerability analysis of finite
state machines, preventing reverse engineering in STT-CMOS designs,
PLL-based countermeasures against fault injection, and remote device
attestation.

HOW DO WE MAKE IP REUSE WORK?
59
Time: 3:30pm - 4:30pm | | Room: 18AB | | Event Type: Panel | | Track: IP
Topic Area: General Interest
MODERATOR:
Keeping track of the various IPs created at the different business units and
locations has been equally challenging. In addition, new languages such
IP-XACT (IEEE 1685) were developed by a consortium of semiconductor
companies, but failed to make major headway among the designer
community (although IP providers have started using this as a means for
distributing IPs). This panel aims to see whether we oversold IP reuse.
Brian Fuller - ARM, Inc., San Jose, CA
Looking through the crystal ball a decade ago, managers and engineers
alike predicted that with the ever-increasing complexity in semiconductor
designs, IP would rule the design world. Everyone got sold on the “Plug-nplay” concept of using IPs to create SoCs. From an IP provider’s standpoint,
design companies rushed to create IPs with high hopes, only to realize
that the future was not as rosy as predicted. The Darwinian theory reigned
supreme and IP providers fell by the wayside with only a handful of them,
emphasizing quality and support, surviving.
Representatives from the design, provider and semiconductor communities
will discuss what ails the IP industry and what can be done to improve IP
reuse for analog and digital design. Will emerging technologies such as 3D
stacking help? Will an IP management system that lets designers find the
right existing IP and track its previous success help?
At the other end of the spectrum, semiconductor companies have struggled
to create and reuse IPs within their own companies. Now, with the growth
in analog SoCs, many of the existing providers -- as well as some new
ones -- started to create analog IP. However, analog IP design is like black
magic: loved by many but known to only a few. Good analog designers are
hard to come by, and the need to create test chips for different process
technologies, as well as expense, has dented the growth of the analog IP
industry. EDA providers have approached IP reuse from a different angle and
tried to develop tools that could help IP integration or quality validation. But
the challenge has been selling the paradigm shift of using EDA tools to hook
up or test IPs as opposed to using their own tools and scripts.
PANELISTS:
Lisa Minwell - eSilicon Corp., Austin TX
Rwik Sengupta - Samsung Semiconductor, Inc., Austin, TX
Ranit Adhikary - ClioSoft, Inc., Fremont, CA
John Koeter - Synopsys, Inc., Austin, TX
From an IP reuse standpoint, a combination of factors has made reuse
an arduous journey. Tight schedules have constrained semiconductor
companies from creating as much reusable IP as they would have liked.

The goal of this special session is on exposing the Approximate Computing
challenges across various layers of the hardware-software stacks and
enabling cross-layer approximate computing, along with an overview of the
early research efforts. This special session highlights the new challenges
and opportunities available at multiple abstraction level (i.e. layers between
circuits and applications) and motivates the need to bridge this gap through
cross-layer design and optimization practices.
61.3 Approximate Computing with Partially Unreliable Dynamic
Random Access Memory: Approximate DRAM (4:30)
Matthias Jung, Deepak M. Mathew, Christian Weis, Norbert Wehn
- Univ. of Kaiserslautern, Germany
The key questions that will be discussed are:
1) Where to apply approximate computing? Computation, communication,
and/or data approximations!
2) Interplay of different layers in the hardware and software stacks: More at
the application layer where approximations are acceptable, if yes, what
kind of programming language and compiler support are required? More
at the circuit and architecture layers where a high potential of savings for
less effort is available.
3) Will working at one level be inherently limiting?

DESIGN TRACK: GETTING THE MOST FROM TCL
Time: 3:30pm - 5:00pm | | Room: Ballroom F | | Event Type: Embedded Tutorial | | Track: EDA
Topic Area: General Interest
SPEAKERS:
Tcl has been the language of design-automation since it’s inception in the
1980s. Tcl’s dominance is due in part to the ease of extending the language
by exposing existing C/object code and the availability of Tk for graphics
extension. As a language, it has relatively few firm syntax rules and can be
described as a nested string processor. That minimal syntax has led many
EDA engineers to learn just-enough of the language for the job at hand.
That minimized knowledge unfortunately leads users to develop coding
patterns that are not robust or even dangerous in large systems. The tutorial
will give a firm grounding to EDA users to develop code that works all of the
time instead of most of the time. It will discuss Tcl features that make coding
in Tcl more productive and will describe patterns to build complex EDA flows
and systems in Tcl.

DESIGN TRACK: CHALLENGES ON ARCHITECTURE AND CHIP DESIGN FOR
AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRONIC CONTROL UNITS
Time: 3:30pm - 5:00pm | | Room: Ballroom G | | Event Type: Invited Presentations
Track: Automotive, Design | | Topic Area: System Architectures & SoC
CHAIR:
64.1 Fast and Furious: Keeping Pace with the Trends in Automotive
Architecture (3:30)
Jason Jones - Texas Instruments, Inc., Houston, TX
Michael Huebner - Ruhr Univ. Bochum, Germany
ORGANIZERS:
64.2 New ADAS Silicon Architectures Drive a Quantum Leap in
Platform Efficiency, Intelligence and Flexibility (4:00)
Chris Rowen - Cadence Design Systems, Inc., San Jose, CA
Michael Huebner - Ruhr Univ. Bochum, Germany
Dirk Ziegenbein - Robert Bosch GmbH, Renningen, Germany
Next generation of electronic control units (ECU) in cars need a next
generation of silicon devices for analog, digital as well for mixed signal
functionality. The increasing complexity of ECUs leads e.g. to a shift towards
multicore processors which are able to handle the high computational
requirements of advanced driver assistant systems. Also a higher integration
of systems into System-on-Chip (SoC) devices, where analog as well as
digital interfaces, partly with a very high throughput for camera based
system are on one silicon die, requires high end EDA tools in a broad range.
This means tools for system level design, mixed signal chip design, formal
verification and finally testing needs to be selected. In this special session
the silicon providers as well as developers present recent techniques for
next generation automotive chip design. The special session is addressed to
hardware and system engineers as well as to researchers.

Topic Area: Cyber-Physical Systems, General Interest
Biography: Dr. Peter Stone is the David Bruton, Jr.
Centennial Professor of Computer Science at the University
of Texas at Austin. In 2013 he was awarded the University
of Texas System Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award and
in 2014 he was inducted into the UT Austin Academy of
Distinguished Teachers, earning him the title of University
Distinguished Teaching Professor. Professor Stone’s research
interests in Artificial Intelligence include machine learning
(especially reinforcement learning), multiagent systems,
robotics, and e-commerce. Professor Stone received his
Ph.D in Computer Science in 1998 from Carnegie Mellon
University. From 1999 to 2002 he was a Senior Technical
Staff Member in the Artificial Intelligence Principles Research
Department at AT&T Labs - Research. He is an Alfred P.
Sloan Research Fellow, Guggenheim Fellow, AAAI Fellow,
Fulbright Scholar, and 2004 ONR Young Investigator. In 2003,
he won an NSF CAREER award for his proposed long term
research on learning agents in dynamic, collaborative, and
adversarial multiagent environments, and in 2007 he received
the prestigious IJCAI Computers and Thought Award, given
biannually to the top AI researcher under the age of 35.
Over the past half-century, we have transitioned from a
world with just a handful of mainframe computers owned
by large corporations, to a world in which private individuals
have multiple computers in their homes, in their cars, in
their pockets, and even on their bodies. This transition was
enabled by computer science research in multiple areas such
as systems, networking, programming languages, human
computer interaction, and artificial intelligence.
We are now in the midst of a similar transition in the area
of robotics. Today, most robots are still found in controlled,
industrial settings. However, robots are starting to emerge
in the consumer market, and we are rapidly transitioning
towards a time when private individuals will have useful
robots in their homes, cars, and workplaces. For robots to
operate robustly in such dynamic, uncertain environments,
we are still in need of multidisciplinary research advances
in many areas such as computer vision, tactile sensing,
compliant motion, manipulation, locomotion, high-level
decision-making, and many others.
This talk will focus on two essential capabilities for robust
autonomous intelligent robots, namely online learning from
experience, and the ability to interact with other robots
and with people. Examples of theoretically grounded
research in these areas will be highlighted, as well as
concrete applications in domains including robot soccer and
autonomous driving!

The Internet of Things (IoT) has become a popular concept in both industry
and academic settings, bringing along the vision of a bright future where
all “unconnected” things become “connected.” Whereas such a tightly
connected world brings about many benefits to our civilization, it comes
at the cost of privacy and security. The internet revolution has already
showed us once that leaving security as an afterthought has devastating
consequences. Repeating the same mistake with IoT would destroy the
utopic future we are aiming for.

Time: 1:00pm - 1:30pm | | Room: 17AB | | Event Type: SKY Talk | | Track: Design, EDA
Topic Area: Emerging Technologies
ORGANIZER:
As a first foray into this exciting new area of exploration, we powered an
integrated circuit using adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy currency of
living systems, by integrating with a CMOS circuit an artificial cell membrane
containing ATPase pumps that hydrolyze ATP and pump ions, producing
a transmembrane potential that can power the solid-state integrated
circuit. Despite these primitive first steps, this co-integration of CMOS and
transmembrane proteins has the potential for impact a large number of
applications: molecular diagnostics and drug discovery by providing new
nanoscale sophistication to electrophysiological interfaces; new sensing
systems for smell and taste; and the ability to detect and treat disease
with real-time feedback through autonomous hybrid systems that could be
symbiotic probes in living organisms. There may also be possibility to exploit
the mechanical nature of ion channels and the ultra-low-voltage operation
that they support to create hybrid ultra-low-power biological co-processors
to augment CMOS in signal processing and computational applications.
Rob Aitken - ARM, Inc., San Jose, CA
Silicon integrated circuits based on CMOS technology form the basis for
complex electronic systems with more than 10 billion transistors in a single
chip. As the scaling of solid-state devices through Moore’s Law reaches an
end and there is a search to expand the capabilities of CMOS technology to
new applications through the addition of new materials (“more than Moore”),
biological components represent a largely untapped opportunity. Living
systems have lipid bilayer membranes, which act as capacitors, storing
charge as ionic gradients across these membranes. Proteins that permeate
these membranes (transmembrane proteins) are versatile biological
electronic devices, controlling ion flow through the membrane. These
proteins can harvest energy from the environment (and store this energy as
electrochemical potentials) and can sense the environment (other molecules,
temperature, pH, voltage, mechanical forces) and signal this by opening or
closing the ion channel through the membrane.

The recent introduction of multi-core and mixed-criticality systems has
resulted in the need for new scheduling algorithms capable of handling
these systems. The first paper generalizes harmonicity to real-time tasks
with deadlines shorter than periods, and applies it to workload partitioning
on multi-cores. The second paper proposes a probabilistic framework
for design and analysis of real-time mixed-criticality systems. The third
paper introduces a distributed scheduler for many-core systems based
on cooperative game theory to reduce inter-core processing overheads.

Near-field IoT solutions comprise devices and applications that leverage
high-frequency data sensing for near-field imaging, sensing, and
communication. They use the untapped and unregulated spectrum between
200GHz and 1000GHz – the Terahertz range.
Such applications include medical, safety and security imaging; nondestructive testing; gas, explosive, and water detection; and food inspection.
In the pharmaceutical industry, target applications are lab-on-chip systems,
protection against medication tampering, and drug distinction.

More and more security attacks today are perpetrated by exploiting the
hardware: side-channel attacks leak secret keys to the outside world, weak
random number generators render cryptography ineffective, fault-based
attacks can compromise authentication, etc. Moreover, many of the tenets
of efficient design are in tension with guaranteeing security. For instance,
classic secure hardware does not allow to optimize common execution
patterns, share resources or provide deep introspection.
80
In this special session we will bring experts from academia and industry to
present the challenges that design engineers and CAD developers will be
facing to extend the reach of the Internet of Things to such near-range, highfrequency applications. The three presentations of this session will cover
many examples of near-field IoT applications, several design examples, and
discuss the landscape of CAD methodologies and tools in this emerging
research area.
In this session, speakers will educate the attendees on potential pitfalls
and demonstrate technologies that effectively provide security without
compromising a design’s efficiency qualities, e.g., performance and power.

The design of emerging embedded systems requires scheduling to
coordinate hardware and software components. System quality would
degrade due to insufficient battery capacity, careless coarse-grained
evaluations, or uncertainty resulting from shared components or incorrect
predictions. The first paper of this session discusses how to cope with
nonvolatile processors when the power switching overhead can be
significant. The second paper presents SoCs with fine-grained DVFS
capabilities. The next two papers provide analytical and scheduling solutions
for shared hardware and software components in real-time embedded
systems, followed by an optimal and fast approach to schedule cyclo-static
dataflow (CSDF). The session concludes with a design space exploration
method to account for prediction uncertainty.

It has become commonly accepted knowledge that verification comprises
50%, 60% or even 70% of design cost, but less well-known is where these
percentages come from and what they mean. Does design cost include
both hardware and software development? What about amortization of IP
and EDA costs? Does verification cost include validation, DFT or timing
closure? Are debug costs included? Pre or post silicon? How are companywide infrastructure costs allocated? While identifying costs is important, it’s
equally important to look at improving value. The panel will explore options
to measure and improve verification coverage, reduce rework, and improve
the chances of first-time silicon success.

PREDICTABLE SYSTEM TIMING - PROBAB(ILISTICAL)LY?
Time: 4:30pm - 5:30pm | | Room: 18AB | | Event Type: Panel
Track: Automotive, Embedded Systems | | Topic Area: Cyber-Physical Systems
MODERATOR:
To address this issue, a variation of measurement-based timing analysis
called Measurement-Based Probabilistic Timing Analysis (MBPTA) has
recently been developed. Its goal is to provide WCET estimates for arbitrarily
low probabilities of exceedance, termed probabilistic WCET (pWCET).
MBPTA relies on the selective injection of randomization across the
execution stack of modern processors, transparent to the application, and
with no effect on functional behavior. Randomization is intended to transform
unknown timing distributions, which would otherwise incur arbitrarily
frequent pathological variations – source of possibly serious repercussions
– into well-behaved distributions, whose extreme cases can be quantified to
arbitrarily low probability levels.
Marco Di Natale - Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa, Italy
The predictability of system timing is a default requirement for automotive
systems just like for other real-time embedded system application domains.
Especially for mixed-criticality applications, the ability to predict timing
behavior soundly and accurately gets crucial to system efficiency, so that
higher loads can be sustained (as desired) while warranting availability,
reliability and responsiveness for the correct execution of critical
components of the system (as required).
Those application domains are also witnessing a surge in performance
requirements, which reflects the increase in the value-added that the
software delivers to the system in those domains. The required levels
of performance can only realistically be attained by employing highperformance hardware acceleration features such as cache hierarchies,
multicore processors, etc. However, those features are increasingly complex
for state-of-the-art static worst-case execution timing (WCET) analysis to
handle with reasonable tightness and for affordable effort.
This panel aims at discussing the viability and the respective advantages of
both probabilistic and classical static timing analysis approaches and how
they fit the industrial needs and practices in terms of timing verification,
both from an application perspective as well as from an processor vendor
perspective.
PANELISTS:
Jaume Abella - Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Barcelona, Spain
Jan Reineke - Saarland Univ., Saarbruecken, Germany
Arne Hamann - Robert Bosch GmbH, Renningen, Germany
Glenn Farrall - Infineon Technologies AG, Bristol, United Kingdom
Measurement-based timing analysis is an alternative to static timing analysis
that promises to be applicable to complex high-performance architectures at
a much lower development cost and possibly higher precision. However, it is
generally very challenging if not impossible to guarantee the correctness of
measurement-based timing analyses, in particular for complex architectures.

Designers add margin to every aspect of their designs, often with good
reason. Timing margin in particular is critical to ensuring yield. But how much
margin is enough? This session looks at three important aspects of timing
signoff – how can tool providers include flexibility for designers to make
informed decisions? What do chip makers need to do to ensure that they
include enough margin at sign off without leaving performance on the table?
Finally, how do margin and chip test interact, since final yield and quality
are determined by the ability to detect and remove marginal parts before
shipping them.

Topic Area: Logic & High-Level Synthesis
SystemVerilog can provide a very concise and readable language for
RTL design. The use of SystemVerilog as a design language continues to
increase as engineers gradually migrate to SystemVerilog from Verilog or
VHDL. As a result, synthesis tool support for SystemVerilog is maturing in
both the ASIC and FPGA domains.
This track is taught by Doug Perry, Doulos Senior Member Technical Staff.
SPEAKER:
Doug Perry - Doulos, San Jose, CA
This session will teach you how to use the SystemVerilog language for
hardware design by focusing on the parts of the SystemVerilog language
that are widely supported by commercial RTL synthesis tools. This session is
aimed at engineers who are currently using Verilog or VHDL for RTL design,
and who want to start taking advantage of the power of SystemVerilog to
better express their hardware design intent. Language features will be taught
using working code examples, which delegates can run immediately on the

Track: Embedded Systems, Security | | Topic Area: System Software, General Interest
Doulos partners with MathEmbedded for training solutions in the Secure
Embedded domain.
Security is a hot topic for connected devices. Having good software
security is essential to reduce the risk of remote network-based attacks
but IoT devices can often be physically accessed. They may also have
other constraints such as limited CPU and memory resources or power
requirements. There may even be situations where the main software
environment cannot be trusted. In these cases, hardware security can
really help. It can be used to prevent reverse engineering or offload
computationally expensive operations. It can also help to isolate software.
This short course will show how embedded security can be improved
through the use of on-board and on-chip security hardware features and
how these can be controlled by software.

Writing robust, high-performance applications in C++ is about more
than just converting algorithms from pseudo-code into C++ source files,
compiling them, and linking them together. Application development involves
specific, intricate knowledge of the language syntax itself, proper use of
template libraries, unit testing methodologies and tools, knowledge of linker
idiosyncrasies, shared-object library development, and, yes, cool ways to
exploit C++ language features. The topics discussed at this session are
directly applicable to all C++ applications, and attendees will leave with
a better understanding of how to improve their own code, whether their
applications are EDA related or not.
This DAC tutorial will focus on specific aspects of application development
in C++, with presentations by C++ experts from Rackspace and NVIDIA.
The session will cover generic C++ library development, unit test
development, and linker/loader complexities. If time permits, a short Q&A
with the presenters will follow.

Topic Area: General Interest
SPEAKER:
Elegant solutions may appear obvious in hindsight, but are difficult to identify
in the moment. During this interactive session we’ll learn very practical
strategies for discovering creative solutions. Individual problem solving
methods and tactics will be explored, along with ways to overcome barriers
to innovative thinking. We then learn ways to approach interpersonal issues,
emphasizing techniques for promoting collaboration and overcoming the
emotional and psychological barriers of conflict. Finally, you’ll learn ways to
better manage and solve problems as a member of a team or group. Going
beyond brainstorming, we’ll explore tactics to harness the creative energy of
the group while avoiding “analysis paralysis” and the dreaded “groupthink”.

TRACK 2, PART II: THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO SYSTEMC TLM-2.0: LEARN THE
TECHNOLOGY STANDARD THAT UNDERPINS VIRTUAL PLATFORMS
Time: 2:15pm - 5:15pm | | Room: Ballroom F | | Event Type: Thursday is Training Day | | Track: EDA
Topic Area: System Architectures & SoC, Codesign & System Design
Following its launch back in 2008, the SystemC TLM-2.0 standard quickly
became the dominant standard for integrating transaction-level models in
the context of building virtual platforms for architectural exploration and
software development. TLM-2.0, which is now part of the IEEE 1666-2011
SystemC standard, standardizes a set of modeling mechanisms that allow
transaction level models from different sources to be interoperable and yet
to run at the fast execution speeds necessary to build a virtual platform for
software development.
This track is taught by David C. Black, Doulos Senior Member Technical
Staff, who is co-author of the book, “SystemC: From the Ground Up.”
SPEAKER:
David Black - Doulos, Austin, TX
This session will introduce the main concepts of both SystemC and TLM2.0, and will explain the tricks that allow TLM-2.0 to maintain speed and
interoperability in the context of virtual platform modeling. The features of
the standard will be demonstrated using working code examples, which
delegates can run immediately on the EDA Playground website and will be
available to use and share after the class.

TRACK 3, PART II: INTRODUCTION TO EMBEDDED LINUX SECURITY: KEYS TO
UNDERSTANDING VULNERABILITIES IN EMBEDDED SYSTEMS AND HOW TO
SECURE THEM
Time: 2:15pm - 5:15pm | | Room: Ballroom G | | Event Type: Thursday is Training Day
Track: Embedded Systems, Security | | Topic Area: System Software, General Interest
This track is taught by Adrian Thomasset, Senior Member Technical Staff,
Doulos.
Linux is being used in an increasing number of embedded devices including
smart building and energy devices, set-top-boxes, automotive in-vehicle
infotainment, Wi-Fi routers and home gateways, smart meters, industrial
monitoring equipment and even domestic white goods.
SPEAKER:
Adrian Thomasset - Doulos, United Kingdom
Increasingly these devices are being connected to networks and this can
leave them vulnerable to remote attacks that can result in brand damage,
financial liabilities, product returns and even safety issues.
“Hardening” Linux systems to make them more resistant to attack is
possible and is something that should be performed for every connected
product. This introductory seminar introduces embedded systems
developers to the techniques of how to identify vulnerabilities and begins to
show ways in which the systems can be secured.

TRACK 4, PART II: TAKING YOUR C++ TO THE NEXT LEVEL
Time: 2:15pm - 5:15pm | | Room: 10AB | | Event Type: Thursday is Training Day | | Track: EDA, IoT
Topic Area: General Interest, System Software
ORGANIZER:
This DAC tutorial will focus on specific aspects of application development
in C++, with presentations by C++ experts from NVIDIA and AMD.The
session presents generic (template) programming techniques and the use of
type erasure to solve classic object-oriented programming problems. After
the two presentations, a detailed Q&A session, with speakers from parts I
and II of the tutorial, will be held. Attendees can ask questions about any of
the presentations or ask about aspects of the C++ programming language
itself.
John Croix - Cadence Design Systems, Inc., Austin, TX
Writing robust, high-performance applications in C++ is about more
than just converting algorithms from pseudo-code into C++ source files,
compiling them, and linking them together. Application development involves
specific, intricate knowledge of the language syntax itself, proper use of
template libraries, unit testing methodologies and tools, knowledge of linker
idiosyncrasies, shared-object library development, and, yes, cool ways to
exploit C++ language features. The topics discussed at this session are
directly applicable to all C++ applications, and attendees will leave with
a better understanding of how to improve their own code, whether their
applications are EDA related or not.
SPEAKERS:
Paul Fultz II - Advanced Micro Devices, Inc., Austin, TX
Zach Laine - NVIDIA Corp, Austin, TX
TRACK 5, PART II: MAXIMIZING MENTAL AGILITY
Time: 2:15pm - 5:15pm | | Room: 9C | | Event Type: Thursday is Training Day | | Track: Design
Topic Area: General Interest
SPEAKER:
This program will train participants to develop six mental strategies to
improve efficiency, creativity, motivation and job satisfaction. This program
highlights the six facets of human thought that are simultaneously hidden
and obvious, and easy-to-learn techniques that will help employees to be
more productive, efficient, creative, motivated and satisfied in their work and
personal lives. The techniques are presented in a fast-paced, interactive
format that combines presented material with situational team-based
learning modules, designed to transition the concepts into the participant’s
everyday thinking.

Track: IoT, Embedded Systems | | Topic Area: Circuit Design, Cyber-Physical Systems,

ORGANIZER:
Substantial improvements in neural implant longevity are needed to
transition BMI systems from research labs to clinical practice. In this talk
I will describe the development of a minimally invasive, wireless neural
implant to enable chronic and stable neural recording. The implant is based
on micro-electrocorticography (μECoG), an electrophysiological technique
where electrical potentials are recorded from the surface of the cerebral
cortex, reducing cortical scarring when compared with microelectrode
recording techniques that pierce into the cortex. Wireless powering
and readout are combined with a flexible, microfabricated antenna and
electrode array with an ultra-low power integrated circuit. The low power
consumption of the integrated circuit enables remote powering well below
established IEEE and FCC safety limits, while the small size and flexibility
of the implant minimizes the foreign body response. The improved implant
safety and longevity gives wireless μECoG excellent prospects to become
the technology of choice for clinically relevant neural interfaces in the
foreseeable future.
Sharon Hu - Univ. of Norte Dame, Norte Dame, IN
Smart and connected medical implants are the next frontier in the Internet
of Things (IoT) and are set to revolutionize healthcare. Advancing our
ability to interface technology with biological environments will enable
patients to be monitored and receive treatment at home, and in the long
term, have chronically implanted electronic devices seamlessly integrate
with their everyday lives. As an example, clinically viable and minimally
invasive neural interfaces stand to transform disease care for patients of
neurological conditions. Recently there has been an explosion of research
in Brain-Machine Interfaces (BMI) that has shown incredible results in using
electronic signals from the motor cortex of the brain to control artificial limbs,
providing hope for patients with spinal cord injuries. A major impediment to
clinical translation is that state-of-the-art clinical neural interfaces are large,
wired and require open-skull operation which leaves the patient at risk of
infection and unable to move. Future, less invasive interfaces with increased
numbers of electrodes, signal processing, and wireless connectivity will
enable advanced prosthetics, disease control and completely new usercomputer interfaces.

The Semiconductor Industry is at a crossroads. The larger, consolidated
semiconductor companies will continue to chase Moore’s Law, delivering
bigger, more complex chips with loads of functionality done at smaller
process nodes, paying handsomely for design tools to enable first-silicon
success, and winning the coveted key sockets. At the same time, the
emerging Internet of Things market is destined to upend that time-tested
“advanced-node” model, as developers opt for older, less costly process
technologies, using commodity design tools and selecting proven IP blocks
to quickly and efficiently assemble chips. As demand for IoT devices grows
exponentially, might open source EDA tools and IP become viable, or even
the winning combination that enables the low-cost design of an IoT SoC?

In this talk, we explore the key SoC features, industry standards, and
software design patterns that enable the INTERNET of Things to reach its full
potential.
Patrick Groeneveld - Synopsys, Inc., Mountain View, CA
Industry analysts foresee astonishingly rapid expansion of IoT business
opportunities between now and the end of the decade. This accelerated
growth is fueled by technical progress in two areas. First, new generations
of small, power efficient, network-capable SoCs enable integration of
computing capabilities into the “things” all around us. Second, open
industry standards bring secure, Internet-scale connectivity to all IoT
platforms, including the smallest and most power constrained devices.
Standardization enables independent development of hardware and
software components across the entire IoT value-chain, thereby increasing
innovation and reducing costs.

ORGANIZER:
Michelle Clancy - Cayenne Communication, San Jose, CA
Hoverboards are surely among the hottest tech toys around — also among
the most controversial, given the numerous stories and videos featuring
these gizmos catching fire. This unfortunate tendency was enough to get
them banned by most major U.S. airlines. Since it wasn’t an option to bring
your hoverboard to Austin, you might be especially interested in checking
out the teardown. Expect this to go way beyond kicking the tires. In fact the
tires will surely come off during disassembly — the better for inspecting the
motors. Also likely to be stripped out: the circuit board including the main
microprocessor, and the various sensors and modules that help keep these
things balanced, most of the time. (The Instagram video of Justin Bieber
falling off his board has 1.1m likes.)
Stop by, if only to see how much space the battery takes up in a hoverboard
chassis, and what’s so flammable in there anyway.

This talk will cover the technical features of the RISC-V ISA design ,
which has the goals of scaling from the tiniest implementations for IoT
up to the largest warehouse-scale computers, with support for extensive
customization. We’ll also describe three different industry-competitive opensource cores developed at UC Berkeley, all written in Chisel, a productive
new open-source hardware design language. Finally, we’ll describe the
uptake of RISC-V and the development of the RISC-V ecosystem, including
the RISC-V Foundation.
Valeria Bertacco - Univ. of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI
The most important interface in a computer system is the instruction
set architecture (ISA) as it connects software to hardware. So, given the
prevalence of open standards for almost all other important interfaces, why
is the ISA still proprietary? We argue that a free ISA is a necessary precursor
to future hardware innovation, and there’s no good technical reason not to
have free, open ISAs just as we have free, open networking standards and
free, open operating systems.
SPEAKER:
Krste Asanovic - Univ. of California, Berkeley & SiFive, Inc., Berkeley, CA
The free and open RISC-V ISA began development at UC Berkeley in 2010,
with the frozen base user ISA standard released in May 2014, and has
since seen rapid uptake around the globe, including the first commercial

way to enjoy some of the scenic turnouts.
CHASING DOWN EVERY LAST PICOJOULE IN THE INTERNET OF THINGS
Date: Wednesday, June 8 | | Time: 3:30pm - 4:00pm | | Room: DAC Pavilion - Booth 1839
Event Type: DAC Pavilion | | Track: Design, IoT | | Topic Area: Low-Power & Reliability, Circuit Design,
General Interest
ORGANIZER:
In this talk I will discuss a variety of approaches for minimizing energy
usage in IoT electronics and will focus particularly on the opportunity and
challenges presented by sub-threshold operation.
Zhuo Li - Cadence Design Systems, Inc., Austin, TX
The emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) will be closely tied to the
emergence of ultra-low power electronics. Billions of battery-powered
devices will be shipped as part of the IoT explosion, which will create a
need to keep billions of batteries charged up. To fully realize the IoT vision
will require energy-efficient microcontrollers, radios, sensors, and power
electronics. It will also require dramatic improvements to the energy
efficiency of software, something that is often overlooked. One of the most
promising techniques for achieving the ultra-efficient energy requirements
demanded by IoT is sub-threshold circuit operation.
SPEAKER:
Scott Hanson - Ambiq Micro, Austin, TX
IFIXIT APPLE TEARDOWN
Date: Wednesday, June 8 | | Time: 4:30pm - 5:00pm | | Room: DAC Pavilion - Booth 1839
Event Type: DAC Pavilion | | Track: Embedded Systems, IoT | | Topic Area: General Interest
ORGANIZER:
This is the company, after all, that developed the five-pointed Pentalobe
screw. Don’t worry, iFixit made relatively short work of the Apple Watch last
year and is sure to do the same with the next device. Sorry, Sir Jony.
Michelle Clancy - Cayenne Communication, San Jose, CA
Last year at DAC it was a modest little product called Apple Watch that went
under the knife. Yes, it can be painful to watch a spudger being applied
to anything designed by Sir Jonathan Ive, “Apple’s greatest product,”
according to a sprawling feature in The New Yorker last year. Still, iFixit has a
job to do, one that can be somewhat difficult given Apple’s famous aversion
to tinkering and tampering.
