New Trends in Architectural Designs Spur EDA Opportunities

Author: Deepak Shankar
CEO of Mirabilis Design
Migration to multi-core processors and new scopes in architectural designs are expected to revamp the EDA sphere where currently there is a limited scope for large-scale architectural software deployment. A lot of systems in aerospace, mobile computing, and defense are on the verge of migrating from single-core to multi-core processors. However, much of the software in these systems is optimized for the maximum throughput on a single core processor with a single source of data memory access.

Introduction of 4, 8, 16, and higher number of cores in a single processor promises an arduous task to shift gears. The software migration process will not be a mere re-compilation of the code; it demands a substantial change in the code development methodology and rewriting of the legacy code. Experimenting with different software design approaches is an area where design tools will be very valuable. It would also be an extension to the current EDA tools, which are presently focused on the hardware or verifying the software built on the hardware.

Knowledge of rocket and launch technology has been limited, in the past, to a few countries and a small number of private corporations. With huge R&D investments in countries like India and private corporations such as SpaceX, new countries can focus on the less expensive satellite and instrumentation design. Countries like India offer affordable rocket-on-demand to launch satellites, allowing any country to expand their communication infrastructure, remote sensing for higher-quality weather forecasting, and military intelligence. Aerospace requires a lot of early feasibility studies, offering scope for new design companies to sell multiple licenses and aid in the design process.

Amidst the trends, there is a lack of knowledge that haunts every firm, as there are very few people with extensive experience employed in aerospace worldwide. This is a boon to EDA entrepreneurs who can leverage their intellectual property to start an organization that supports these new research oriented efforts and provide standard products that accelerate the customer specification process. As the new company begins its service, they must ensure that the first customer uses their solution for a concrete project, which would serve as a testimony to the solution’s capability. With a success story and reference in place, one can plan ahead of achieving the next million dollars via more client acquisition, while keeping oneself updated on the different opportunities unveiled amidst the changing trends in the ecosystem.

1: From: Mrs. Mary David

This mail may be a surprise to you because you did not give me the permission to do so and neither do you know me but before I tell you about myself I want you to please forgive me for sending this mail without your permission. I am writing this letter in confidence believing that if it is the will of God for you to help me and my family, God almighty will bless and reward you abundantly. I need an honest and trust worthy person like you to entrust this huge transfer project unto.

My name is Mrs. Mary David, The Branch Manager of a Financial Institution. I am a Ghanaian married with 3 kids. I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of US$7,500,000.00 Dollars. This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the manager made as profit last year (i.e. 2010 financial year). I have already submitted an annual report for that year to my head office in Accra-Ghana as I have watched with keen interest as they will never know of this excess. I have since, placed this amount of US$7,500,000.00 Dollars on an Escrow Coded account without a beneficiary (Anonymous) to avoid trace.

As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account on my behalf. I agree that 40% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, and 60% would be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. It's going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund so that the fund can be transferred to your account.

If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response to me. This is why and only reason why I contacted you, I am willing to go into partnership investment with you owing to your wealth of experience, So please if you are interested to assist on this venture kindly contact me back for a brief discussion on how to proceed.

All correspondence must be via my private E-mail ( for obvious security reasons.

Best regards,
Mrs. Mary David.
