|Speaker:||Andrew Gardner (Principal Design Engineer)|
|Presentation Title:||FPGA accelerated IP Validation|
|Abstract:||Simulation and Emulation don’t scale when verifying large multi-core, multi-cluster compute sub-systems. I will show how ARM utilised off-the-shelf FPGAs to construct an automated IP validation environment and why it is about more than just the hardware.|
|Speaker Bio:||Andrew is currently responsible for the architectural specification of verification silicon and automation infrastructure.|
In his previous role at ARM he led the FPGA group responsible for delivery of multi-FPGA implementations of CPU, interconnect fabric and systems IP. The primarily goal being IP validation where they built cycle-accurate systems with extensive debug features, working closely with IP validation leads and payloads groups to ensure the availability the right system configurations and test stimulus.
