Monday, May 7th, 2012

 

DAC looms!

It’s time to start examining the Conference Program and figure out how you’re going to spend your time in the first week of June when you’re attending the Design Automation Conference next month in San Francisco at Moscone Center.

Marvelous Monday …

On Monday June 4th at DAC there’s so much going on you really need to take some time to seriously consider how you’re going to schedule your day. So, first click here to see the jam-packed program, and then figure out what your priorities are.

Sessions or Exhibition Hall? You better work on this now, because if you suffer from sensory overload syndrome, you’ll never figure it out on the day of.

DAC 2012: Super Sunday in San Francisco

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

 

DAC Looms!

It’s time to start examining the Conference Program and figure out how you’re going to spend your time in the first week of June when you’re attending the Design Automation Conference next month in San Francisco at Moscone Center.

Super Sunday …

Sunday is never a Day of Rest for DAC attendees, and Sunday June 3, 2012 is no exception. First, there are 4 co-located conferences happening in Moscone Center on DAC Sunday:

* IWLS: International Workshop on Logic Synthesis
* SLIP: System Level Interconnect Prediction Workshop
* HOST: IEEE Internt’l Symposium on Hardware & Trust
* ESLsyn: Electronic System Level Synthesis Conference

There are also 7 DAC-related workshops:

* CMOS Design at 60 GHz & Beyond
* Moore than More Technologies
* EDA & Process Automation
* Bio-Design Automation
* Young Faculty at DAC
* System-level Design of Automotive Electronics & Software
* Computing in Heterogeneous, Autonomous ‘N’ Goal-oriented Environments

SAME: Microelectronics in the South of France

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

 

The Sophia Antipolis Microelectronics Forum takes place every fall in the ‘Silicon Valley’ of Southern France, Sophia Antipolis, 5 miles inland from the beautiful Mediterranean city of Antibes.

Sophia Antipolis is about 20 minutes from the International Airport at Nice, with offices for approximately 800 high-tech companies – included among them: ARM, Broadcom, Cadence, HP, IBM, Infineon, Intel, Mentor Graphics, Nvidia, STMicro, and Synopsys – housed in a range of buildings set among the rolling hills of the enclave. Within that forested place and 800 enterprises, almost 40,000 people are employeed. There are also two college campuses in Sophia Antipolis, as well as restaurants, a golf course, multiple hotels, and a tennis institute.

In other words, if you’ve never been to the Cote d’Azur, never been to Nice or Antibes, if you think you’d love vistas across the wide blue Mediterranean Sea, want to learn more about good food, wine, Picasso, Matisse, ancient Greeks, the French Riviera, or microelectronics – and not necessarily in that order – you’re going to be wanting to go to the Sophia Antipolis Microelectronics Forum taking place this year on October 2nd & 3rd.

Imec: Firat Yazicioglu & the Cardiac Patch

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

 

For the last few years, the world of Imec Senior Scientist and R&D Team Leader Firat Yazicioglu has revolved around IC design of mixed-signal and analog devices, specifically those used for bio-medical health monitoring, and not just the technical challenges, but the economic and ergonomic aspects as well.

When we spoke recently, Firat said, “At Imec [in Leuven, Belgium] we are looking at all pieces of the puzzle with regards to bio-medical devices. How can you curb the costs, what are the details of the electronics, and how can a wearable sensor offer a solution to the problem of home monitoring for patients with chronic disease? Things like arrhythmia or predicting a seizure before it happens.

“These questions are definitely More than Moore issues that involve both digital and analog content on-chip, signal processing problems, and the need for such devices to run on very, very low power.
