2019 IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference

Feb 17-21, 2019

Marriott Marquis Hotel

San Francisco, CA

DesignWare ARC EV Processors for Embedded Intelligence

The International Solid-State Circuits Conference is the foremost global forum for presentation of advances in solid-state circuits and systems-on-a-chip. The conference offers a unique opportunity for engineers working at the cutting edge of IC design and application to maintain technical currency and to network with leading experts.

On Thursday, Feb 21, join Bert Moons as he presents on Enabling Embedded Intelligence: Application, Architecture and Design Solutions. Embedding neural intelligence at the edge remains challenging today, due to the huge computational and memory requirements and the large algorithmic diversity of modern vision and sensing tasks. However, these challenges can be overcome by simultaneously co-optimizing smarter applications, leaner neural networks, optimized computer architectures and even more efficient circuits. This talk is an overview of recent important advances in the field and of the techniques Synopsys applies to enable embedded intelligence in its DesignWare EV6x IP.
