Questa VIP

Webinar Overview

High Performance Compute architectures are changing, driven by the triple quest: achieve the most favorable economics, provide the highest performance, and leverage the advantage of AI/ML alongside traditional processors. To enable those goals, there are new interconnect protocols, memory solutions, storage connectivity solutions at all levels of the datacenter, from chip thru package, board, backplane, module, rack to facility level. Solutions that change the game for design and verification and demand expertise and comprehensive support from EDA.

 What You Will Learn:

The Webinar will be focused on the advances in PCI Express generation 6 protocol, and on the Compute Express Link or CXL protocol, pulling on some common threads: verification strategy for complete PCIe/CXL coverage, verifying interconnect security and integrity with IDE, how interconnect meets memory, and productivity solutions to enable time to market.

Who Should Attend:

  • Design and Verification Engineers.
  • Design and Verification Lead Engineers.
  • Design and Verification Managers.
