The Design and Verification Conference (DVCon) 2019 is to host a panel on the verification and compliance implications of open instruction set architectures (ISAs) like RISC-V, organised by industry expert Imperas.

Dubbed “Verification and Compliance in the Era of Open ISA – Is the Industry Ready to Address the Coming Tsunami of Innovation,” the panel is to be organised by Imperas’ Larry Lapides, moderated by Tirias Research’s Kevin Krewell, and feature Andes Technology’s Emerson Hsiao, Breker Verification Systems’ Adnan Hamid, Facebook’s Rob Shearer, and Imperas’ Simon Davidmann as panellists.

The panel marks the first such discussion on the implications of open ISAs, which are seeing increased commercial adoption across a broad range of market segments, in the 31 years of DVCon history – a clear testament to the fact that open ISAs are leaving academia, and in some cases garages, and becoming a force to be reckoned with in the industry as a whole.

DVCon 2019 takes place on the 25th to the 28th of February in San Jose, California, with the Open ISA panel scheduled for the 27th of February between 0830 and 0930. Imperas has also confirmed it will be demonstrating its virtual platforms for embedded software and systems development, debug, and test at the event, with more details available on the official website.
