Munich, Germany – 5th August 2021- The Design and Verification Conference & Exhibition Europe (DVCon Europe), sponsored by Accellera Systems Initiative, has announced its first two keynote speakers, Rashid Attar, VP, Engineering, Qualcomm Technologies, and Satish Sundaresan, Managing Director, Elektrobit India. The event will be held virtually on October 26th and 27th, with SystemC Evolution Day on the 28th.
Rashid Attar’s keynote will be entitled ‘The Future of Hardware Innovations for AI Systems’, while Satish Sundaresan will present ‘Take a Leap: Virtualization in Future Development’. Between them, the two presentations will discuss the increasing technical capabilities for autonomous driving and examine how we should embrace virtualization.
Sumit Jha, General Chair of DVCon Europe, said, “Inspiring and intriguing keynotes from industry leaders have been one of the main attractions at DVCon Europe over the years. We are very pleased to have Rashid and Satish on board and it will be great to get their insights into these trending topics.”
Rashid Attar joined Qualcomm in 1996 and is head of the ASIC/HW research and development department, focusing on 5G and beyond RF; ultra-low power platform for always ON processors, processors and accelerators; and antenna systems. He is also Head of Engineering for Qualcomm’s Cloud/Edge AI Inference Accelerator program and holds nearly 200 US patents.
Satish Sundaresan heads Elektrobit India’s subsidiary based in Bengaluru. The India centre is a research and development location for Elektrobit and Satish also heads a global product development team in the validation space for Advanced Driver Assistance. Prior to Elektrobit, Satish managed large global programs, whilst leading India-based research and development centres across automotive electronics and IT operations.
The 2021 conference will include virtual papers, tutorials and panels focused on sharing best practices and industrial application of design and verification methodologies, languages and standards in areas such as: system-level and software design, model-based and model-supported software design, verification and validation, IP reuse and design automation, functional safety and security, and mixed-signal and low-power design and verification.
Industry themes and trends such as digital twin, machine learning, RISC-V, next generation automotive and 5G will be highlighted.
