Keynote Speaker Copenhagen and Stockholm 2023
Keynote speaker: Martin Kellermann , Microchip Technology GmbH, Munich
Title: RISC-V: Paving the Path Together to a Safe, Secure and Reliable Future
Abstract: RISC-V is an open-source instruction set that has created opportunities for companies of all sizes to innovate and make decisions independently. It is predicted to shape the future of computing for the next 50 years by providing a processor architecture that allows for more processing with a smaller carbon footprint, more features with less development resources, and new ways to combat threats with existing technologies. Companies are already utilizing RISC-V to develop applications such as High-Performance Spaceflight Computing (HPSC) processors. This keynote will explore how companies can benefit from this independence and how the ecosystems can enable easy adoption and scalability. It will also highlight companies that are already a part of this revolution and discuss how they can help create a safe and secure future. Through RISC-V, companies can reach their goals and protect their future. Together, we can move mountains.

Keynote Speakers Stockholm 2023
Keynote speaker: Mark Frost, Intel’s Programmable Solutions Group (previously Altera), England
Title: Key Factors for Success in Today’s and Tomorrow’s Markets
Abstract: This presentation will explore the key areas that FPGA suppliers must consider in order to succeed: industry-leading supply chain management, product leadership, and an up-to-date developer experience. We will examine the current supply chain landscape, which is facing an unprecedented imbalance in demand and supply, leading to long lead times and product allocations. We will also discuss the need for FPGA companies to make strategic investments to achieve product leadership and remain competitive. Furthermore, we will look at the importance of having up-to-date knowledge and skills, fast and appropriate EDA tools, the right SoCs, and the right RTL, SW, and hardware IP from generation to generation for FPGA developers to be productive. The presentation will then provide an overview of the different options available to FPGA vendors, preferred standards, and flows. Finally, we will look at how FPGA technology is being used in different parts of the world and provide a prediction of its future.
