Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 11th and 12th 2014
Bob Zeidman is the president and founder of Zeidman Technologies where he invented the patented SynthOS™ program for automatically generating real-time software. He is considered a pioneer in the fields of analyzing and synthesizing software source code.
Bob is a prolific writer and instructor, giving seminars at conferences around the world. Among his publications are numerous articles on engineering and business as well as five textbooks, Designing with FPGAs and CPLDs, Verilog Designer's Library, Introduction to Verilog, The Software IP Detective’s Handbook, and Just Enough Electronics to Impress Your Friends and Colleagues. He is also author of the award-winning novels The Amazing Adventure of Edward and Dr. Sprechtmachen, Horror Flick, and Good Intentions as well as the award-winning but as-yet unproduced screenplays Sex and Violence, The Amazing Adventure of Edward and Dr. Sprechtmachen, and Horror Flick.
Bob is the recipient of the 2010 Outstanding Engineer in a Specialized Field from the IEEE Santa Clara Valley Section for Innovative Contributions in the Area of Forensic Software Analysis. He holds numerous patents and earned two bachelor's degrees, in physics and electrical engineering, from Cornell University and a master's degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University.
Advances in software synthesis can automatically create a very fast, low footprint, highly secure operating system based on the application requirements. Instead of the traditional approach of the applications conforming to the OS, now the OS can be determined by the applications. OS synthesis can also rearrange and optimize existing code to meet specific timing constraints on a particular hardware platform. The resulting application specific operating system (ASOS) has strengthened security, increased reliability, lower hardware costs, reduced debug time, and minimized memory footprint, all of which are critical to devices connected to the Internet of Things.
