IBM Haifa Research Lab Selected as Technical Presenter for Prestigious Power Architecture™ Developer Conference

September 17, 2007

IBM Haifa researcher Yoav Katz will present "An Automatic System for Power Architecture Compliance Validation" at the September conference, which focuses on breaking down the barriers to innovation.

IBM Haifa researcher Yoav Katz was selected to present a technical paper at the Power Architecture™ Developer Conference, to be held in Austin, Texas, September 24 - 25, 2007. The selection process for this inaugural event focused on Power Architecture technology education was highly competitive, with submitted papers exceeding the number of available slots by almost 160%.

"IBM Haifa Research Lab's seminar enriches the technical curriculum offered at the Power Architecture Developer Conference, and we're very pleased to have them on board," said Jesse Stein, Power Architecture Developer Conference Chair. "We've assembled a first-rate program with more than 65 hours dedicated to Power Architecture technology designed to advance our industry and aid customers as they break down the barriers to innovation."

The Power Architecture Developer Conference will bring together professionals from the design engineering community. The event's technical program discloses new information on software development for the Power Architecture platform, multi-core solutions, virtualization, compute-intensive solutions, and digital media, as well as an embedded perspective.

The IBM Haifa Research Lab will present a session titled "An Automatic System for Power Architecture Compliance Validation," which will describe a system for PowerPC compliance validation based on automatic detection of architecture misinterpretations. "The session will provide insight on the unique aspects of compliance verification and presents a systematic method of creating compliance test suites for the PowerPC architecture", said Yoav Katz, manager of the Processor Verification Technologies group in the IBM Haifa Research Lab.

This vendor-neutral event is designed to provide practical information for engineers, designers or engineering managers currently working with or planning to work with Power Architecture technology. On day one of the conference, thought-leaders from AMCC, Freescale Semiconductor and IBM will share their visions for Power Architecture technology and for the many markets it plays in. On day two, Jim Bell, a leading scientist for Mars exploration, will share how he reaches for the stars every day, and will send attendees home inspired to take their designs further.
