Open Source and RISC-V Discussion January 18

Friday, December 23rd, 2016

riscv-logoPlease plan to join us Wednesday, January 18, for a discussion about Open Source and the RISC-V processor featuring Jim Hogan of Vista Ventures, Rick O’Connor, executive director of the RISC-V Foundation, and Yunsup Lee, SiFive’s chief technology officer (CTO). They will describe the path from inception to the open source RISC-V ecosystem, explore whether an open source architecture is appropriate for IoT processing needs and what that means for startups and innovation.

As you’ll hear them say, the number of IoT designs is growing at an astronomical pace. IoT devices are capable of sensing the real world. They are prevalent at the edge of the internet, communicating with an external host to process that real-world information. While there are advantages in performance and cost in processing the data locally, doing so requires significant processing capability at low-energy utilization. Systems designed with autonomous local intelligence have increased but require a microcontroller that can run software that takes energy. What emerged from the academic community are open source alternatives such as RISC-V from UC Berkeley that’s gained momentum over the last few years.

Registration Opens for Phil Kaufman Award Dinner, More News from the ESD Alliance

Friday, December 9th, 2016

Registration opened this week for the Phil Kaufman Award Presentation and Dinner to honor Andrzej Strojwas, chief technologist at PDF Solutions and Keithley professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. AndrzejTrophyGraphic

I hope you’ll join us for a celebration that helps us kicks off 2017. The dinner will be held Thursday, January 26, at the Fourth Street Summit Center in San Jose, Calif., where we held the dinner paying tribute to Mentor Graphics’ Wally Rhines in 2015. The evening will begin with a reception and cocktails at 6:30 p.m. The dinner and award presentation will be run from 7:30 p.m. until 9 p.m. We have special entertainment planned that will challenge your senses!

Andrzej is being recognized with the award, presented annually by the ESD Alliance and the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA), for his pioneering research in the area of design for manufacturing (DFM) in the semiconductor industry.

Reservations are $175 per person for ESD Alliance and IEEE members or $250 per person for non-members. Seating is limited and we can accept R.S.V.P.s until Thursday, January 12. To reserve your seat at the 2016 Phil Kaufman Award Presentation and Dinner, visit our online registration.

Tables of 10 are available if your company be interested in sponsoring the event. Sponsorships will heighten a company’s visibility and brand exposure through positive publicity and promotion, and through signage and the program at the event. By sponsoring the dinner, your company is showing the community that it believes in the vibrancy of our industry and honoring those individuals who created it.
