30th DVCon U.S. Kicks Off Next Week

The 2018 Design and Verification Conference and Exhibition U.S. (DVCon U.S.) begins next week, offering attendees the industry’s most comprehensive technical program focused on the design and verification of electronics systems.

Sponsored by Accellera Systems Initiative, the 30th DVCon U.S. will be held February 26 – March 1 at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose, California.

Attendees can choose from a broad selection of 39 papers, 8 tutorials, 4 short workshops and approximately 31 poster sessions over the course of the 4-day technical conference and exhibition.

The conference opens with Accellera Day on Monday, February 26. There will be a morning tutorial, “Portable Test and Stimulus: The Next Level of Verification Productivity is Here,” followed by an Accellera-sponsored luncheon that will provide Accellera updates, honor the 2018 Technical Excellence Award recipient, and have a panel of Accellera Working Group Chairs providing updates on their working group activities and answering questions from the audience. The afternoon tutorial, “IEEE-Compatible UVM Reference Implementation and Verification Components,” will address the new reference implementation and describe the new features and changes relative to UVM 1.2 and what they mean in real applications.

The keynote, “Industry’s Next Challenge: The Petacycle Challenge,” will be delivered by Christopher Tice, vice president of Verification Continuum Solutions in the Verification Group at Synopsys on Tuesday, February 27. He will address how new growth segments in the industry, such as Automotive, IoT, Networking, and 5G Mobile among others, are fundamentally changing the requirements for verification.

There will also be two panel discussions on Wednesday, March 2: “Help! System Coverage is a Big Data Problem!” will have a panel of industry experts discuss some of the issues surrounding system coverage and some possible solutions; and “The Right Tool (or Tools) for the Toughest Verification Tasks” is comprised of users who will discuss how decisions are made about which tools are implemented in a design verification flow.

New to DVCon U.S. this year are four 90-minute short workshops on Thursday, March 1. The workshops were developed to give smaller companies more opportunities to participate in the program. There will also be six half-day tutorials on Thursday, including afternoon tutorials focused primarily on issues surrounding automotive safety and compliance.

Bitcoin prices are back up 30 percent over the last week

South Korea’s finance regulator said the country would support “normal” cryptocurrency trading.

Bitcoin prices are back up to more than $ 11,600 today after South Korea’s finance regulator said the country would support “normal” cryptocurrency trading. That’s the highest it’s been since the country’s regulators said they would ban cryptocurrency traders from using anonymous bank accounts last month.

The price of the cryptocurrency is higher on South Korean exchanges, where a relatively large share of the world’s bitcoin trading volume occurs, driving overall prices up.

Today, Bitcoin prices have risen 5 percent, and about 30 percent in the last seven days, according to data from digital currency publication CoinDesk.

Bitcoin prices had declined from their December peak of nearly $ 20,000 amid uncertainty about increased government regulation on cryptocurrencies. At the beginning of February, bitcoin went below a daily price of $ 7,000, the lowest it had been since November.

However, looking back to last February, the price of bitcoin has risen nearly 1,000 percent.

Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8.0 devices will stop getting push notifications this week

Windows Phone 7.5 Mango review

It’s been awhile since Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8.0 were in the spotlight, but some folks out there may still be relying on a WP7.5 or WP8.0 device to stay connected. Unfortunately, that’s about to become more difficult.

Microsoft has confirmed that it’s ending push notifications for Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8.0. The push notifications services will be shut off tomorrow, February 20, 2018.

Once these services are switched off, Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8.0 devices will no longer receive notifications. Live tile updates will stop coming in, too, and the “Find my phone” feature will no longer be able to locate your device.

Microsoft does say that push notifications on Windows Phone 8.1 devices will continue to work for now, and Windows 10 Mobile devices are unaffected.

While turning off notifications and live tiles won’t render Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8.0 devices completely useless, their functionality will be significantly hobbled. The news is disappointing for anyone still using a WP7.5 or WP8.0 device, but Microsoft likely feels that it can’t keep these services going forever, especially since those devices were replaced by WP8.1 and W10M phones years ago.
