We'd like to invite you to visit CAST at two great IP events in December.
REUSE 2016 on December 1st is a new event that grew from the desire of CAST and other sponsors to share higher-quality, IP-focused ideas and discussions with actual IP users.
Held at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, it offers technical and business paper presentations, lunch, and a low-key exhibit area.
The solid program ranges from a keynote on IP Trends by Semico Research president Jim Feldman to a variety of technical and new product presentations. We’re presenting two papers:
- Using GZIP Data Compression to Reduce Power Consumption in IoT Devices, by Meredith Lucky — IP helped designers of first-generation IoT devices achieve their primary goal of getting to market quickly. Now second-generation IoT device designers must do more, differentiating their products from competitors by reducing power requirements, lowering costs, and providing more processing power in edge devices. Lossless compression IP implementing a widely accepted standard such as GZIP can help in all three of these areas. Here we will focus on one area, power reduction.
- Choosing the Right IP Cores for Low-Latency Video Streaming, by Dr. Nikos Zervas — A negligible delay from video capture to display—the “glass-to-glass” latency—is critical for many video streaming applications, from advanced driver assistant systems (ADAS) and unmanned vehicles to video conferencing and broadcasting. Choosing the IP cores that will enable a successful low-latency video system is not a trivial task: designers must first understand the factors that impact latency, then select cores that provide adequate control over the latency-critical functions.
REUSE 2016 is free; register here.
The second event is the 25th edition of the IP-SoC Conference and Exhibition, sponsored again by Design and Reuse. Taking place December 6th-7th in Grenoble, France, it promises to once again be a worthwhile experience as IP providers and IP users gather to discuss mutual concerns. We’ll have an exhibit table there, and are also presenting a new paper:
- Back to the Future. The end of IoT, by Bill Finch — The term Internet of Things is the most over used, over hyped, misused and misunderstood phrase of the last few years. It now has so many meanings that it has become useless to describe anything worthwhile. As designers of IP and electronic systems we need to refocus on what we want to accomplish going forward. As always, it's about customer needs and long term benefits.

We hope to see you at one—or both—of these IP-focused events. If you can’t make it, watch our blog afterwards for access to our papers. We’re also happy to discuss any aspect of CAST’s IP or IP in general at any time, via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (+1 201.391.8300).
