IP Users Conference: Constellations set to Host at Testarossa Winery

October 8th, 2015 by Peggy Aycinena

October 20th is just around the corner
, so please click here to register for the 2015 Silicon Valley IP Users Conference. It’s hard to see anything about this event not to like: wine, excellent speakers, conversations very specific to the technology and business of IP, and did we mention wine? It’s being held at the Testarossa Winery in Los Gatos.

Of course, it’s hats off to IPextreme’s Constellations consortium for hosting the day-long event, plus special kudos to EDAC for an innovative outlook allowing that consortium to sponsor the 4 pm end-of-day networking reception even though not a single EDA company is on the speaker list. But what’s especially impressive about the October 20th event is the suggestion that various stake-holders in the IP industry can come together in this manner.

IP is still having to fight for full representation at DAC and even to a certain extent within EDAC, despite the ARM CEO being on the Board of Directors, so an enthusiastic conference and rounds of conversation arranged for and by the IP industry is pretty damn cool stuff.

Let’s look at the speakers:

Jim Bruister, SoC Solutions
Warren Savage, IPextreme
Randy Smith, Sonics
Heather Monigan, Intel
Rob Aitken, ARM
Mike Gianfagna, eSilicon
Brian Bradburn, Silvaco
Peng Liu, LSI
Stephen Fairbanks, Certus Semiconductor
Rich Goldman, Silicon Catalyst
Hans Bouwmeester, Open-Silicon
Rob Cosaro, Freescale
Bruce Elder, IDT
Oliver Gunasekara, NGCodec
Claude Moughanni, Lattice Semiconductor

Presenters and moderators also include journalists and analysts:

Bernard Murphy,
Ed Sperling, Semiconductor Engineering
Eric Stein, PricewaterhouseCoopers

Clearly, if you’re an IP vendor, IP user, or anyone else involved in the business and technology of developing third-party IP, you should be attending this event. The topics and networking will be complex and multi-layered – licensing, creating, selling, buying IP.

The wine will just be the icing on the cake.
