SANTA CLARA, USA: Netronome, the leading developer of network flow processors, announced that Bruce Wilford, a Netronome Distinguished Engineer, will be among industry experts speaking at the Global Semiconductor Alliance’s Ecosystem Summit. Wilford will share insights to the best design practices easing software integration with highly programmable, multi-threaded many-core processors.
“GSA is pleased to have Netronome represented at this inaugural event,” said Jodi Shelton, president of GSA. “The Session ll panel is a great forum for Netronome to contribute to the discussion on the challenges of software/hardware integration and to leverage their companies’ strengths by bringing real solutions to the semiconductor ecosystem.”
The GSA’s Semiconductor Ecosystem Summit takes place October 6 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. The one-day event focuses on three core components of the semiconductor business model - supply chain practices, technology evolution and financial trends. Distinguished executives from leading semiconductor companies will address critical topics including collaboration in the ecosystem, supply chain practices for sustainable partnerships, smart technology development, hardware/software integration and redefining the funding model.
Wilford will be participating in Session II: Advanced Technology Development. His panel will discuss “Improving Device Performance — Simplifying Software/Hardware Integration” and will take place from 1:45 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. He will focus on the ideal methodology in which high-performance software is written, debugged and simulated in a cycle-accurate environment. The panel will be moderated by Richard Goering of Cadence Design Systems and additional panel participants include executives from BSQUARE, MontaVista Software and NVIDIA.
