17-session program features product teardowns, analyst projections, design tool users, EDA vendors, VCs, and award winners
LOUISVILLE, Colo. – April 26, 2010 – The 47th Design Automation Conference (DAC), the premier conference devoted to electronic design and design automation, today announced its DAC Pavilion program, featuring 17 sessions spanning a broad range of topics. Complementing the more in-depth DAC technical conference program, the DAC Pavilion program is comprised of 45- or 60-minute sessions hosted on the exhibit floor so that attendees can conveniently attend and gain a good understanding of key industry trends and issues.
This year’s DAC Pavilion program kicks off on Monday, June 14that 9:15am, with presentations and interviews by notables such as Gary Smith, GarysmithEDA (“Gary Smith on EDA: Trends and What’s Hot at DAC”), Jim Hogan, Vista Ventures (“Hogan’s Heroes: What Design and Lithography Nightmares will 22nm Bring?”) and Lucio Lanza, Lanza Tech Ventures (“Lucio’s Litmus Test: Is Your Start-Up Ready for the 21stCentury?”). Also featured are Peggy Aycinena’s interview with the winner of the Marie R. Pistilli Women in Design Automation Award, a discussion with Phil Kaufman Award winners, Prof. Randy Bryant and Dr. Phil Moorby, about the impact of commercialization of their inventions, and Kathryn Kranen’s interview with a group of high school students about their tech gadget preferences and what they expect to be using in two to three years. An expanded number of user panels have been added to the program. In addition, a new category – “Everyone Loves Product Teardowns” – has been added to the lineup. On Tuesday and Wednesday at 1:30pm, live teardowns, sponsored by semiconductor IP provider Virage Logic, will start the afternoon program.
Other highlights of the DAC Pavilion program include a panel on the industry’s career and job market outlook in 2010; and panels on topics such as outsourcing challenges, analog interoperability, SoC verification, multi-core multi-OS applications, the latest SPICE flavors, IP commercialization, SoC design at 28nm and beyond, and FPGA business opportunities.
“The DAC Pavilion program offers attendees an informative overview of both the business trends and technology advances and developments that are shaping today’s electronics design,” said Yatin Trivedi, DAC Pavilion Panels Subcommittee Chair. “With an impressive lineup of panels, presentations, interviews, and product teardowns, I’m confident that attendees will walk away with new insights and valuable information that will help them in their quest to bring continuous innovation to the global electronics market.”
The 47th DAC takes place from June 13-18, 2010, at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, CA. The DAC Pavilion program takes place in Booth #694 on the convention floor. See the full DAC Pavilion program schedule at www.dac.com.
The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier event for the design of electronic circuits and systems, and for Electronic Design Automation (EDA) and silicon solutions. A diverse worldwide community representing more than 1,000 organizations attends each year, represented by system designers and architects, logic and circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior managers and executives to researchers and academicians from leading universities. Close to 60 technical sessions selected by a committee of electronic design experts offer information on recent developments and trends, management practices and new products, methodologies and technologies. A highlight of DAC is its Exhibition and Suite area with approximately 200 of the leading and emerging EDA, silicon, IP and design services providers. The conference is sponsored by the Association of Computing Machinery/Special Interest Group on Design Automation (ACM/SIGDA), the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDA Consortium), and the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA).
