Open-Silicon to Participate in Panel Discussion About Custom SoC Solutions for IoT at ARM TechCon

Booth Exhibit to Include Demonstration of ARM® Cortex®-M Based IoT Custom SoC Platform

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - October 24, 2016) - Open-Silicon, a system-optimized ASIC solution provider and ARM Approved Design Partner, today announced it will participate in a panel discussion titled, "Creating Custom SoCs for IoT: Easier Than You Might Think," at ARM TechCon 2016 in Santa Clara, CA. The company will also demonstrate its ARM® Cortex®-M Based IoT Custom SoC Platform.

Panel Session:

  • Title: "Creating Custom SoCs for IoT: Easier Than You Might Think"
  • Panelists:
    • Nandan Nayampally, VP of Marketing and Strategy, ARM
    • Swamy Irrinki, Senior Director of Marketing, Open-Silicon
    • Jeff Miller, Product Marketing Manager, Mentor Graphics
    • Paul Martin, Director of Engineering, Sondrel
  • When: Thursday, October 27, 11:00am -- 11:30am
  • Track/Location: Expo Theater (Free), Exhibition Floor, Santa Clara Convention Center

Abstract: The hardware industry finds itself in a new wave of innovation driven by custom SoC development for mixed signal IoT devices. These devices span an incredibly diverse market space, from medical to white goods and everything in between. Despite the diversity, they share common characteristics where analog circuits connect the real world to processors and fuel the drive to innovate, reduce cost and differentiate. In this panel session, experts from ARM, Mentor Graphics, Open-Silicon and Sondrel will discuss why it is now easier than ever to design custom SoCs. The panel will look at the paths to low-cost silicon and try to debunk the belief that devices must be created on the latest nodes to be competitive. The panel will look at the tools that can help companies create mixed-signal devices, including devices incorporating MEMS sensors. The panel will explore how companies without experienced resources available can get to market.

Booth Demonstration:

  • Booth #935 - Exhibition Floor, Santa Clara Convention Center

Wednesday, October 26, and Thursday, October 27, from 10:30am - 6:30pm

ARM Cortex-M Based IoT Custom SoC Platform - Demonstrates end-to-end communication between sensor hubs and a cloud platform through a gateway device. Depending on the type of radio technology, the sensor hubs can be used outdoors, on the factory floor or inside a room. This industrial IoT system setup is part of Open-Silicon's Spec2Chip IoT Platform, which allows IoT ASIC designs to be evaluated at the system level.
