CoWare to Demonstrate Electronic System Level Design Solutions

12/21/2004 - CoWare, Inc., the leading supplier of system-level electronic design automation (EDA) software and services, will showcase its electronic system-level (ESL) design solutions for the fast-growing embedded systems market at the VLSI Design 2005 & ICES Conference­to be held in Kolkata, India, January 3-5, 2005. At the conference--which combines the 18th International Conference on VLSI Design and the 4th International Conference on Embedded System--CoWare experts will offer insights into ESL technology and market trends through delivering the keynote address, technical papers, industry forum presentations, and product demonstrations.

“The international VLSI Design conference has a proud tradition of bringing together top researchers from academic institutions, research laboratories and high-technology companies worldwide, and this year is no exception, with all major industry players gathering for the 18th consecutive year,” said Partha Pratim Das, general co-chair, VLSI-18 & ICES-4, 2005, and head of engineering, Interra Systems. “It is particularly encouraging to find new companies coming forward to support the conference. We are quite excited to have CoWare, a leading supplier of ESL solutions, participate as a Silver Sponsor in the first year of the company’s operations in India. This will greatly help increase awareness of ESL technology and its influence in the fast growing embedded systems design market in India.”

Keynote Address to Offer Vision for India’s Role in Growing ESL Market Alan Naumann, CoWare’s president and CEO, will deliver the conference keynote address, “ESL – The Next Leadership Opportunity for India.” Naumann will discuss keys to success in the ESL market and how India can contribute to the growth of the market.

“In 2004, CoWare focused on driving adoption of ESL in India­including announcing the opening of CoWare India Private Ltd. for R&D and system-level IP model library creation­because we believe India is becoming a pivotal player in the growing ESL market,” said Naumann. “As more and more Indian companies focus on product design­not just software design­they are looking to ESL methodologies to help solve problems associated with increasing complexity and hardware-software co-design. Because the VLSI Design 2005 & ICES Conference is uniquely dedicated to designers of both hardware and software systems, it is a perfect venue for Indian companies to hear about the latest developments and keys to success in this increasingly competitive market.”

Product and Solution Flow Demonstrations
In the CoWare booth, attendees can see demonstrations of CoWare’s leading ESL design tools, including SPW­the most comprehensive DSP application solution that bridges the gap from DSP algorithm exploration to implementation into hardware and software; as well as its ConvergenSCTM system-level design solution­featuring the industry’s fastest SystemC simulator­and the LISATekTM suite of tools for embedded processor modeling, design, and software tool generation. CoWare application engineers will be available onsite to answer attendees’ questions. To schedule a demonstration, contact Sandeep Gupta at

Industry Forum and Technical Program Presentations
At the conference Industry Forum, representatives from various companies will discuss emerging technologies and major successes in the Indian market. Representatives from Infineon Bangalore will present a paper titled “Modeling of Application Specific Instruction Set Processor and Customization of the Tools Generated,” based on their success using CoWare’s LISATek products for ASIP design. CoWare will also present a paper titled “Embedded Software Development in the Platform Context,” addressing challenges and solutions for software development on complex SoCs.

CoWare will also present two papers during the conference technical program. The first, jointly presented by CoWare and the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, is titled “Extracting Exact Finite State Machine from SystemC Behavioral descriptions.” The second, focused on embedded processor design, is titled “A Methodology and Tooling Enabling Application Specific Processor Design.”
