15 a 19/07/2013 – Introduction to Real-Time Kernels

This Track will introduce you to a real-time kernel that manages the CPU’s time as well as many of the resources found in today’s processor-based embedded systems.  A kernel can be used on small (8-bit) to large (32-bit) applications and can actually help accelerate your product’s development.  This series of classes will provide you with enough information to allow you to decide whether your next embedded application can benefit from the use of a real-time kernel. It’ll also help you select the right one for your application.

Courses include:

  • July 15 | Day 1 – What is a Real-Time Kernel?
  • July 16 | Day 2 – Task Management
  • July 17 | Day 3 – Scheduling & Context Switching
  • July 18 | Day 4 – Time and Resource Management
  • July 19 | Day 5 – Signaling, Inter-Task Communications and Debugging

18/07/2013 – New Developments in Conformal Coatings for Advanced Technologies

For many years, the electronics, automotive, military, aerospace and medical device industries have used conformal coatings to protect devices from their environments, provide thermal or electrical insulation, improve lubricity, immobilize particulates, stabilize delicate structures, function as a primer or interface that is non-inhibitory to tissue growth, ….and the list goes on.

While there are a host of conformal coatings that offer one coating characteristic or another, a drawback to many modern coatings is that they are unable to protect the small, increasingly complex devices that are being designed for the latest innovative technologies. Poly(para-xylylene), known as Parylene, is an ultra-thin, inert, transparent coating that meets these unique challenges. Parylene provides highly useful dielectric and barrier properties per unit thickness, as well as extreme chemical inertness and freedom from pinholes. The coating is also biocompatible. Parylene protects components and devices, including circuit card assemblies, MEMS, sensors, LEDs, cores, lab-on-a-chip devices, pacemakers, electrosurgical tools, stents and cochlear implants, to name only a few.

Parylene deposition takes place in an evacuated, room temperature chamber through a process known as vapor deposition polymerization (VDP). Sometimes also identified as CVD, this process involves the spontaneous polymerization of a conformal coating on all exposed substrate surfaces and edges, and into crevices at a predictable rate, with thickness controllable from 500 angstroms to 75 microns.

This webinar will focus on the Parylene’s unique properties, how the coating is applied, examples of applications that benefit from Parylene’s properties, and advances that have been made in adhesion technologies. The webinar will also address a new antimicrobial Parylene technology that is now available.

As materials and applications continue to advance, Parylene coatings are increasingly being used to enhance the reliability of innovative technologies.

18/07/2013 – Understanding  the Lighting Regulatory Landscape and How it Impacts LED Lighting Products and Projects

Lighting is subject to regulatory guidelines at the state and country level in North America, and at country levels around the globe.  Energy standards include product regulations, building standards, market transformation programs and high efficiency or green building guidelines.  This webcast will look at some of the most significant regulatory issues facing the lighting industry and how this will impact the LED market.

The LEDs Magazine Webcast on lighting regulations and standards will be presented by IES Fellow and Acuity regulatory expert Cheryl English, and will focus on programs that specifically impact LED-based lighting, and the transition of the lighting industry from legacy sources to SSL. The presentation will take a quick look at legacy regulations, and examine how the regulatory landscape is evolving to support LEDs.

The presentation will focus primarily on North America, including California-centric regulations that in many cases are leading the broader US-wide programs. The discussion will include a brief look at the Canadian regulatory landscape.   Still the global audience should find the material compelling both because global companies do business in the US, and because there are similar LED regulatory programs being put in place in every region of the world.

What You’ll Learn:

  •  The complex regulator landscape that impacts lighting at the state and national level in the US.
  • How regulatory programs apply to, impede, or encourage the transition to LED-based lighting.
  • The broad set of regulatory bodies that in some way impact light projects in terms of efficiency guidelines, green requirements, building standards, and more.

18/07/2013 – VHDL Intelligent Coverage™ using Open Source – VHDL Verification Methodology (OS-VVM) with Guest Presenter, SynthWorks  

Abstract 
At the lowest level, Open Source – VHDL Verification Methodology (OS-VVM), is a set of packages that provide concise and powerful methods to implement functional coverage and randomization. OS-VVM uses these packages to create an intelligent testbench methodology that allows mixing of “Intelligent Coverage™” with directed, algorithmic, file based, or constrained random test approaches. Having an intelligent testbench approach built into the coverage modeling puts OS-VVM a step ahead of other verification methodologies, such as SystemVerilog and UVM.
Attend this webinar and learn how to utilize OS-VVM to add functional coverage, Intelligent Coverage, and constrained random methods to your current testbench.
Agenda
  • What and Why OS-VVM, Functional Coverage, and Randomization
  • Writing Item (Point Coverage)
  • Writing Cross Coverage
  • Constrained Random is 5X or More Slower
  • Intelligent Coverage
  • OS-VVM is More Capable
  • Additional Randomization in OS-VVM
  • Weighted Intelligent Coverage
  • Coverage Closure
  • OS-VVM Loves any Testbench
  • Additional Methods for Verification
Benefits of OS-VVM include
  • Faster Test Construction, focus is on functional coverage
  • Faster simulations: O(Log N) faster than constrained random and no solver.
  • Goes beyond other verification languages (SystemVerilog and ‘e’)
  • Works with your current VHDL testbench
  • Uses entity and architectures for structure (just like RTL).
  • Is language accessible. Able to refine with code.
  • Readable by ALL (Verification and RTL engineers).
OS-VVM is open-source package based. It compiles under VHDL-2008 or VHDL-2002 (with minor adaptations), so you can use it today. www.osvvm.org
