WELCOME MESSAGE BY GENERAL CHAIR
On behalf of the DVCon India 2021 steering committee, it is my pleasure to welcome you all to the 6th edition of the Design and Verification Conference in India planned from 14-16th Dec 2021 as a virtual conference. We are bringing DVCon India 2021 in a wholistic virtual platform comprising of in-depth technical content for 3 days. This is an upward shift and progression from the Accellera Day that we organized in 2020. We thank you all and the entire ecosystem for the understanding and cooperation throughout this journey.
The IC industry continues to grow thanks to the Systems, Automotive and Technology unicorns venturing to design their own chips and well-established IC companies and start-ups bringing in new innovations and chip architectures. While there are a lot of new designs and architectures, we continue to evolve in…
