CING provides a comprehensive forumóincluding user presentations, keynote speeches and networking breaksóto promote the exchange of information and ideas about ESL design methodologies and flows beyond those covered in other SystemC users groups. The meetings focus on critical SystemC, C/C++, LISA and MATLAB design issues faced by system architects, processor designers, DSP application designers, and algorithm developers. Existing and prospective CoWare users, as well as others interested in ESL design, are invited to attend the meetings to share their ESL design experiences, successes, frustrations, and challenges.

"Because CoWare is the technology leader in ESL design, many customers work closely with our experts as they adopt ESL tools and methodologies to speed electronic product design," said Dr. Heinz Holzapfel, vice president of worldwide services and support at CoWare. "CING provides a forum for highly-qualified ESL designers to continue to learn from each other and our technical teams."

CING meetings are held annually in North America, Japan and Europe. The first CING meeting in North America was recently held in Santa Clara, Calif. in conjunction with the GSPx conference.
