Agenda

We’re still working on finalizing the agenda, but please see below for the initial agenda! Check back as this will be updated regularly. All Rambus Design Summit sessions will be presented in Pacific Standard Time.

TimeSession
9:00am – 10:00am

Keynote: Emerging Compute Architectures for the Evolving Data Center

Speaker: Steven Woo
Abstract: As the world has become increasingly connected, processing continues to evolve from the familiar cloud computing paradigm. The vast profusion of IoT devices has contributed to the exponential rise in data volume. Greater intelligence is moving to the edge of the network and to the end points themselves to provide greater, real-time functionality. The implications for global network infrastructure are profound and there are significant developments in computing architectures which will shape the future data center.

10:00am – 10:45am

Selecting the Right High Bandwidth Memory Solution

Speaker: Frank Ferro
Abstract: An exponentially rising tide of data has led to the development of application-specific silicon to tackle the requirements of demanding workloads such as AI/ML training, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) for automotive, network graphics and HPC. To keep these processors and accelerators fed requires state-of-the-art memory solutions that deliver extremely high bandwidth. Frank Ferro will discuss design and implementation considerations of HBM2E and GDDR6 memory subsystems to address the bandwidth needs of next-generation computing applications.

11:00am – 12:00pm

Selection and Implementation of a PCIe 5.0 Subsystem

Speakers: Malini Narayanamoorthi and Vinitha Seevaratnam
Abstract: The latest generation of the PCI Express, PCIe 5.0, advances performance to 32 GT/s in support of advanced applications including 400G Ethernet. In this webinar, Rambus technology experts Malini Narayanamoorthi and Vinitha Seevaratnam discuss the selection and implementation considerations for PCI Express solutions. A demonstration of the silicon-proven Rambus PCIe 5.0 interface solution consisting of integrated PHY and memory controller will be shown.

12:00pm – 1:00pm

Next-Generation Displays: An Integrated IP Solution from Mixel, Rambus & Hardent

Speakers: Justin Endo | Joe Rodriguez | Alain Legault
Abstract: Displays for next-generation smartphones, AR/VR devices, and automotive systems all require more bandwidth than ever before. Using a combination of VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) with the MIPI Display Serial Interface (DSI-2) technology, designers can achieve display resolutions up to 8K without compromise to video quality, battery life or cost. This presentation will showcase a fully integrated off-the-shelf display IP solution consisting of Mixel (C-PHY/D-PHY Combo), Rambus (DSI-2 Controller), and Hardent (VESA DSC) IP that delivers state-of-the-art performance.

TimeSession
9:00am – 10:00am

Panel: Data Center Dynamics

Speakers: Ed Sperling | Steven Woo | Matt Jones | John Eble | Neeraj Paliwal
Abstract: Ed Sperling, Editor in Chief of Semiconductor Engineering moderates a far-ranging roundtable on the dynamics shaping the future of the data center. Rambus Fellow and Distinguished Inventor, Steven Woo, discusses the macro trends and their impact on compute and network device architectures. Technology leaders from across Rambus will share the chip and IP solutions that can take data center performance and security to the next level.

10:00am – 10:45am

Securing Data Center AI/ML Workloads

Speaker: Bart Stevens
Abstract: With the rising value of AI/ML spanning training and inference models and data, as well as the AI hardware itself, the threats from adversaries are greater than ever. As such, a security strategy for AI/ML workloads and hardware needs to offer far more than secure boot and authentication. Rambus security expert, Bart Stevens will discuss how a hardware root of trust can be the foundation for AI/ML security through defense in depth, partitioning of secure operations, and state-of-the-art protections from side channel attacks.

11:00am – 12:00pm

Securing High-Speed Data in Motion

Speaker: Gijs Willemse
Abstract: Providing Layer 2 security, MACsec is becoming the predominant solution for safeguarding network traffic. While network security is increasingly a de facto requirement, there is a growing trend of protecting the SoC interfaces as well, including short distance ones such as PCI Express (PCIe) and those to off-chip memory. In this webinar, Rambus security expert, Gijs Willemse, will discuss the design and implementation of hardware-based MACsec security and trends for high-performance inline encryption.
