The conference is being held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Silicon Valley – Milpitas, California, on Wednesday, November 3 and Thursday, November 4, 2004. It focuses on educating the industry about significant issues in SOC design. Tensilica’s activities will include:

A presentation entitled, "Instantly Create SOC Hardware Blocks from C Algorithm Descriptions," which will be given by Steve Roddy, vice president of marketing, on November 3 at 1:30 p.m. Mr. Roddy will discuss new compiler technologies that enable the instant creation of RTL hardware descriptions from algorithms written in standard ANSI C code.

A second presentation entitled, "Designing with Configurable Processors Instead of RTL,” which will be presented by Steve Leibson on November 4 at 1 p.m. Mr. Leibson will discuss how configurable processors can be used in place of traditional custom logic to simplify and accelerate the design of SOCs.

A panel discussion entitled, "CPUs and DPSs for SOC Platform Design," with Steve Leibson on November 4 at 4:15 p.m. Mr. Leibson will be one of five panelists to discuss the integration of CPUs and DPSs in SOC design. Other panelists include Intel, ARM, Texas Instruments and Elixent.

“In less than a year, this conference has grown to become one of the leading forums for discussion on SOC design,” said Leibson. “The conference program comprises leading authorities in academic and commercial circles. We are honored to be among such an impressive group and look forward to sharing our knowledge on some of the breakthrough technologies in SOC design.”
