Panel: Is software a missing piece in verification?
Venue: 5th March,2014, Double Tree Hotel, San Jose, CA

Sandeep Pendharkar, VP and Head Product Engineering at Vayavya Labs joins his co-panelists discussing the importance of software in SoC verification flow. Traditionally software has not been an integral part of SoC verification flow. However factor like increased design complexity of modern SoC, standardization of SoC peripherals along with their very high programmability and ever shrinking time-to-market are pushing the envelop of SoC verification. Using software, which eventually forms the REAL world product, during verification is gaining traction. Be part of this event to learn from panelists drawn from industry experts and the audience.

Essential Abstractions

EETimes featured a blog “Essential Abstractions” by Srivatsan Raghavan, our Senior Architect. This blog talks about how the standards and abstractions have become essential for the software side of the design industry, especially the segment where low-level software is developed to enable an IP for both verification and system-software.

Vayavya Labs demonstrates GStreamer plugins based on AVB technology

AVB or Audio Video Bridging is a promising technology and standard aimed at delivering the multimedia content in more controlled, guaranteed and deterministic manner over a network. This new standard or a set of standards has been mainly is mainly specified by IEEE, and promoted by industry consortiums like AVNU (avnu.org). The technology finds major acceptance in automotive infotainment, vehicular networks, and professional AV systems. Early adopters include leading switch makers, and many Audio Video equipment makers. Vayavya recently demonstrated the technology through implementation of GStreamer plugins for Linux based on OpenAVB using the DesignWare® Ethernet QOS V4.0 core from Synopsys. The two plugins – a ‘Talker Plugin’ and a ‘Listener Plugin’ on the lines of a 'sink' and a 'source' respectively, can be used as plug-n-play components for transmission and reception of AVB traffic. The plugins use the key AVB stack components like gPTP, CBS, MAAP and SRP. GStreamer based media applications can make use of the plugins for transport of multimedia streams over Ethernet, much like the way they use either TCP plugins or UDP plugins. Vayavya Labs demonstrated live (real-time) audio and video transmission scenarios - both raw streams with time stamping and TS streams over AVB enabled Ethernet interfaces. avb1 We envisage that the plugins and the work around it to gain wider acceptance in consumer electronics applications, which are in need of dedicated hi-bandwidth like video conferencing, among others.

Ricoh licenses Vayavya’s DDGen tool for automated device driver generation

Kanagawa, Japan – June 3, 2013 – Ricoh Company Ltd., a global leader in imaging devices and industry products, today announced that they have entered a licensing agreement with Vayavya Labs Pvt. Ltd. for using DDGen to accelerate development of device drivers. DDGen generates device drivers for different operating systems from a formal specification of the peripheral’s programming specification. Ricoh will be using DDGen for different peripherals present in their products – including USB host/device controllers, network controller, flash memory devices, etc. The licensing engagement follows a positive recommendation from an earlier study by Ricoh that looked into various aspects of the DDGen methodology – including quality of the generated code. Naoya Morita, Embedded Platform Development Department at Ricoh Company, Ltd., said, “As a system provider, we would like to have every IP be ready to be incorporated into the systems. In order to establish such state, it is essential to have a tool like DDGen, which enables us to automatically generate device drivers based on data such as IP-XACT (with extensions), and to manage all IPs with IP-XACT. We have been searching some tools like DDGen to cut down cost, time and effort while meeting the time-to-market demands. We are encouraged by the early results shown by DDGen.” RK Patil, Vayavya Labs CEO said, “As programmable IPs in SoC design increase by numbers and complexity, the delivery of embedded software as part of the system becomes a bottleneck. With proliferation of multiple embedded operating systems, SoC firms face the challenge of delivery for device drivers and multiple BSPs. An automation tool like DDGen can help in bringing productivity improvements by 10x for device drivers and BSP. We are happy to see a major Embedded Platform vendor like Ricoh endorsing the tools benefits.”
