Achieving IC Reliability in High Growth Markets
Panel Several high growth IC markets are experiencing demand for higher reliability, including mobile/wireless, automotive, industrial control and medical. At the same time, factors such as thinner gate oxide and multiple power rails have the potential to introduce subtle design flaws leading to delayed failure mechanisms. This panel will be an interactive forum where experts and attendees on the show floor can discuss the demand for IC reliability, what design methodologies can reduce the occurrence of delayed failure mechanisms, and how design for reliability checks can be automated to help remove the burden from designers.
Moderator: Mathew Hogan, Product Manager, Calibre Design Solutions
Join us on June 3, 2013 at 3:00 to 4:00 pm. The panel will be immediately followed by a hosted bar happy hour.
Marrying More Than Moore
Panel The IC industry will undergo significant changes as future growth is driven not just by traditional Moore’s Law scaling, but also by “More Than Moore” technologies including 3D-IC, MEMS and silicon photonics. As these technologies emerge from R&D into volume production, they will create new opportunities for IC designers to add value to products. They will also challenge designers to find a way to combine the strengths of these technologies and to marry them into a unified EDA flow. This panel will be an interactive forum where attendees on the exhibition floor can exchange ideas and questions with a group of experts who are already grappling with these exciting opportunities and challenges. The panel will be immediately followed by a hosted bar happy hour.
Moderator: John Ferguson, Director of Marketing
Join us on June 4, 2013 at 3:00 to 4:00 pm. The panel will be immediately followed by a hosted bar happy hour.
No Fear of FinFET
Panel FinFETs, or so-called 3D transistors, are a key competitive element in all the leading edge IC foundry offerings because FinFETs can achieve much lower power operation than planar transistors. There has been a lot of discussion of the physical and electrical characteristics of FinFETs, but designers are wondering how FinFETs will change the design, verification and test flow. This show floor panel will provide a forum for experts and DAC attendees to learn and interact directly in an informal and entertaining discussion. The panel will be immediately followed by a hosted bar happy hour.
Moderator: Joe Sawicki, Vice President & General Manager, Design-to-Silicon Division
Join us on June 5, 2013 at 3:00 to 4:00 pm. The panel will be immediately followed by a hosted bar happy hour.
