  • Intel Dinner Keynote - IOT Solutions: System scaling during the convergence of IT and OT

    Article: Webinar on Multi-voltage/VT/Channel Length Libraries-ken-caviasca-intel-min.jpgThe Electronic Design Processes (EDP) 2016 Workshop and Symposium, in its 23rd year, has fostered the free exchange of ideas among the top thinkers, movers, and shakers who focus on how chips and systems are designed in the electronics industry. It has provided a forum for this cross-section of the design community to discuss state-of-the-art improvements to electronics design processes and CAD methodologies, rather than on the functions of the individual tools themselves.

    The EDPS was founded by Bill McCallah in 1978 as key activity of the Design Automation Technical Committee (DATC). This annual EDPS Workshop and Symposium takes place each year in Monterey, California, and emphasizes both the here and now and the future.

    Attendees of this elite workshop have met each year since 1993. It has attracted some of the most far-seeing people in the electronics industry and academia as speakers. If you need to know where the industry is and where it's going with respect to the design and development, and especially methodologies and technology of design, you should consider attending this year.

    The dinner keynote this year is Ken Caviasca, Intel Vice President and GM of IOT Platform Engineering. Ken has the exciting role of developing a broad range of IOT systems from things to the cloud. The pace of innovation has never been faster with the advent of performance/cost scaling of 3 key attributes. Compute, Connectivity, and Data.

    System scaling during the convergence of IT and OT

    Article: Webinar on Multi-voltage/VT/Channel Length Libraries-edps_wiki_sunrise02-min.jpgThe multi-fold improvement in the prior attribute has given lift to new IOT solutions. IOT solutions span a wide range of markets, industries, and technologies. There are many real world improvements and problems which can be solved at technology solutions moves from people driven solutions to a “things” driven solutions. As this shift occurs there are several foundational capabilities that must scale across vendors and device performance levels. An additional challenge in these emerging IOT systems is to converge attributes of IT and OT as the systems enter the interface with physical systems. When IT and OT is blended correctly the best of both domains can be applied to solving real world problems in a cost effective, safe and reliable manner. This requires a cloud through edge capabilities that combine in a way to implement new systems. Systems that would have been too cost prohibitive to build only 5 years ago. Today we are building and deploying these IOT innovations which are improving efficiency, driving valued improvements to operations and people lives. It certainly is an exciting industry inflection point we are innovating in today.

    Kenneth P. Caviasca is vice president in the Internet of Things Group and general manager of platform engineering and development at Intel Corporation. He has overall responsibility for computing platforms targeted to the Internet of Things (IoT) market segment, including planning, architecture, user experience priorities, silicon definition, operating system porting, hardware, firmware, validation and manufacturing test. The IoT platforms developed by his team encompass product offerings based on Intel® Atom™, Intel® Core™ and Intel® Xeon® processors.

    Since joining Intel in 1984 as a silicon engineer in automotive controllers, Caviasca has held various technical and management positions in flash microcontrollers, embedded devices, video signal processors, security devices, chipsets, network processors, server processors and manufacturing operation startup. Before assuming his current position, he managed platform development for the Intelligent Systems Group, overseeing hardware, validation and software integration development. Earlier in his Intel career, he managed silicon development for the Communication Infrastructure Group and led a team responsible for delivering system-on-chip, server-class and chipset products for the embedded and communications market segment.

    Between 2008 and 2010, Caviasca’s development team won several premier supplier awards from industry-leading communications equipment suppliers. He and his team also won an Intel Achievement Award in 2004 for excellence in network processor development.

    Caviasca earned his bachelor’s degree in computer and electrical engineering from the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut and his MBA degree from the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. He holds seven patents in circuits, CPU and video systems architecture.
