Francisco Gaspar,



In this talk, Francisco Gaspar will explain what a Hardware Engineer at ARM can accomplish in his role, and try to transmit both the importance and the expectations from the Design, Verification and Implementation sides of it. He will start with a brief presentation of ARM and proceed to break down a hypothetical small CPU example and explain how the different roles of a hardware engineer can contribute the get the design working together. Francisco will also address a few aspects of research, how it contributes to ARM products and how universities can participate in this process.


Francisco Gaspar completed his masters in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisboa in 2014 and has been working in CPU design since then – initially in Imagination Technologies (MIPS) and currently in ARM. During his career, he has worked in both CPU verification and design with the latest stint in ARM being entirely focused on the design side in the Cortex-R family of CPUs.
