DATE Save the Date 17 to 19 April 2023


Dear DATE community,

We, the DATE Sponsors Committee (DSC) and the DATE Executive Committee (DEC), are deeply shocked and saddened by the tragedy currently unfolding in Ukraine, and we would like to express our full solidarity with all the people and families affected by the war.

Our thoughts also go out to everyone in Ukraine and Russia, whether they are directly or indirectly affected by the events, and we extend our deep sympathy.

We condemn Russia’s military action in Ukraine, which violates international law. And we call on the different governments to take immediate action to protect everyone in that country, particularly including its civilian population and people affiliated with its universities.

Now more than ever, our DATE community must promote our societal values (justice, freedom, respect, community, and responsibility) and confront this situation collectively and peacefully to end this nonsense war.

DATE Sponsors and Executive Committees.


Kindly note that all times on the virtual conference platform are displayed in the user's time zone.

The time zone for all times mentioned at the DATE website is CET – Central Europe Time (UTC+1).

W04 OSHEAN - Open Source Hardware European Alliances and iNitiatives

Start
Friday, 18 March 2022 08:30
End

Organiser
Christian Fabre, CEA, France

 

The OSHEAN (Open Source Hardware European Alliances Network) workshop aims to contribute to the emergence of a European open source hardware ecosystem for ultra-low power (ULP), secure, microprocessors, microcontrollers and accelerators. The presentations and panels will cover the full value chain of open source hardware with speakers from academia, foundations and forums, to industries.

They will enable discussion with the audience on how to develop and grow a European open source hardware ecosystem. We will address key issues such as technical roadmap and gaps for open source hardware, opportunities in academic research, open source development sustainability, reliability of the open source IPs, funding and business aspects. Addressed topics will also cover legal and governance aspects of open source hardware e.g. licensing, governance, liability and regulatory issues.

Organizers and speakers originate from all the open source value chain and covers key technologies for edge applications in all power and performance ranges from deeply embedded to high-end computing, and other key aspects of hardware development that are key to open source acceptance: compilation, open source design tools, simulation, verification, real-time and mixed criticality, including certification guidelines for design of IP for safe/secure applications.

Attendees will be able to participate in the start-up of a community whose objective is to create a strong European ecosystem in open source hardware.

08:30 08:40 Christian Fabre (CEA) Welcome & introduction
08:40 09:00 John D. Davis (BSC) How do we see the challenges in open source hardware?
09:00 Session on Open Source Hardware Technologies
moderated by Davide Schiavone (OpenHW Group)
Open Source Hardware (HW) is becoming de facto an industrial standard with an increasing population of available IPs that range from ultra-low-power edge-computing platforms to high-performance, high-end systems. Particularly, RISC-V systems arise interest among processors developers and users thanks to it simple and extendable, yet performant instruction-set architecture (ISA) among a wide range of performance requirements. In this session, alongside a strategic view on RISC-V in the industry, several IPs will be presented to show how open source is shaping the future of academic and industrial solutions. There will be showcases on open source artificial intelligence architectures as well as secure microprocessors.

11:00 Session on Open Source Software & Support Technologies for Open Source Hardware
moderated by Jérôme Quévremont (Thales)
Besides IP blocks addressed in the previous session, open source hardware requires several software technologies that benefit from open source collaboration. First of all software development tools, such as compilers, debugger, bootloaders, operating system, runtime frameworks, etc. Then design tools like FPGA compilers, CAD tools, simulators, emulators, validation tools, etc. Finally yet importantly, security benefits from open source at every level of the hardware and software stack. This session will report on several contributions these support technologies, and discuss the main upcoming issues of this field.

RISC-V Open Era of Computing: Innovation, adoption, and opportunity in Europe and beyond

moderated by Christian Fabre (CEA)
RISC-V is the undisputed lead architecture that has ushered in a profound new open era in compute. The innovations and implementations of RISC-V span from embedded to enterprise, from IoT to HPC. RISC-V is delivering on extensions, tools, and investments of a global community ranging from start-ups to multi-nationals, from students to research fellows. This talk will highlight that progress and opportunity, with an invitation to engage
14:00 Panel on Licensing, Funding, Cooperation & Regulation
moderated by Andrew Katz (Open Forum Europe)
There are several non-technical challenges for Open Source Hardware that should be addressed on the regulatory and policy level. There is a need for researching funding mechanisms that could increase Europe's influence and the level of participation of and cooperation between SMEs, academia and large companies, as well as a clarification of the regulatory and licensing issues that might stifle innovation. Are there policy solutions that can support such developments and Open Source Hardware initiatives? Who can be a driver of change? In this panel the panellists will discuss these pertinent issues and share their experiences.

15:45 Panel on Industrial Concerns
moderated by Frank K. Gürkaynak (ETH Zürich)
Open source hardwarre, especially around the RISC-V architecture has been a talking point in the recent years. There has been a rapid development and from humble beginnings where open source hardware was a niche between enthusiasts and academics, today we have multi-billion dollar companies and recently a commitment from the European Commission to support work in open source hardware. In this session, we would like to go beyond the buzz and discuss with people involved in industry what opportunities they see, what the potential roadblocks are and what they think is still missing.
