The Internet of Things is expected to be the largest
semiconductor growth segment over the next 5 years with over 20 Billion devices
anticipated to be in use by 2020. Microcontrollers (MCUs) are at the heart of
these applications providing local processing and communication. To participate
in this highly competitive market, MCU suppliers leave no stone unturned; using
advanced design techniques, IP and tools to minimize costs and power while
rapidly incorporating the latest complex functionality consumers require.

Using a recently introduced wearable device application example, this
webinar will discuss:

  • The trends and unique challenges designers face when developing
    next-generation MCUs.
  • How designers are using the latest Synopsys design and implementation tools
    with proven DesignWare® IP solutions to meet their demanding requirements.
  • Synopsys’ recent innovations to shorten design turnaround time, while
    reducing power consumption and costs for MCU designs.

Who should attend: Design engineers, project leads and
managers tasked with developing low cost, low power ICs.
