The Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) is the industry's largest, most comprehensive technical conference for embedded systems professionals in the U.S. ESC is excited to announce an expanded 2015 USA Conference Series, taking place in Boston [May 6-7], Silicon Valley [July 20-22], and Minneapolis [November 4-5].
Join over 2,000 technical professionals and embedded systems hardware, software, and firmware developers to learn about the latest techniques and tricks for reducing time, cost, and complexity in the embedded development process.
The ESC Boston Technical Conference Program consists of 8 tracks covering all aspects of embedded systems design, from concept development through to prototyping, debugging, and manufacturing decisions.
Through ESC's full program of technical training, post-mortems, teardowns, and hands-on sessions, attendees will absorb practical, actionable information to cut time, money, and complexity out of the embedded development process.
Today a large number of VLSI chips and digital systems designs contain multiple, interacting timing domains. The resulting asynchrony is both an opportunity and a challenge for design, validation, and test. The International Symposium on Asynchronous Circuits and Systems (ASYNC) is the premier forum for researchers to present their latest findings in the area of asynchronous design.
The 12th Annual SWDFT conference registration is FREE until May 2nd. Register early because space maybe limited. The SWDFT consists of a FREE Main conference day of DFT/Test related invited speakers and a 2nd day FREE Tutorial.
Dates: May 5 - 6, 2015Location: CROWNE PLAZA Austin Hotel, Austin, TXFee: FREE until May 2, 2015
Last year this conference was a big success again and we expect this year to be even bigger and better! Come, learn, and network at the 2015 SWDFT conference.

EDA Consortium Event: Crossing the Chasm: From Technology to Valuable Enterprise
Date: Wednesday, May 6, 2015, from 6 - 8:30 PMLocation: the EDA Consortium, San Jose, CAEDA Consortium 3081 Zanker Rd. San Jose, CA 95134 (Map)Join us at the May 6th installment of the very popular EDAC - Jim Hogan Emerging Companies Series, where Jim will talk with Ravi Subrmanian about his experiences taking multiple companies across the chasm from technology research to a valuable enterprise.In this informal talk, Ravi will share his experiences building business success as well as technical success. Jim and Ravi will explore his philosophies and experience on building two valuable and successful companies - one fabless semiconductor company and one EDA company.
Electronic products, particularly consumer products have become more complex with greater circuit density, finer lines and spacing and increased functionality. Reliability issues continue to be a major concern for industrial, bio-medical, aerospace and automotive applications and require materials, manufacturing, test and quality engineers to be creative in planning for the future. Assembly process challenges include the use of finer metal powders in solder pastes and novel components and packaging technologies. Due to cost considerations, new low silver or silver-free solder alloys are being evaluated. Use of alloys tailored to the application, wider variety of alloy choices, and smaller passive components are among the challenges being addressed. The engineers and scientists involved in the design and manufacture of many types of electronics equipment are now also concerned with the RoHS 2 requirements. The compliance dates are July 2014 (already past) for medical devices, monitoring and control instruments; 2016 for in-vitro diagnostic medical devices; 2017 for industrial monitoring and control equipment; and 2019 for electrical and electronic equipment, which were exempt from the original RoHS Directive. Materials, process, quality and reliability professionals need to come together to share their knowledge and vision for addressing these challenges.
A next edition of the workshop on Software and Compilers for Embedded Systems (SCOPES) will be organized in 2015. The workshop will feature a combination of research papers and research presentations (details see below). The papers and presentation abstracts will also be published in the ACM digital library. The workshop is held in cooperation with ACM SIGBED and EDAA.
