Stellar Keynotes at DAC 2015: Biocompatible Electronics, Embedded Software and Electrical/ Electronic Systems for Automotive, and Vehicle Cybersecurity

Early registration from April 1 to May 12, 2015

LOUISVILLE, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 24, 2015 — Keynotes at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) 2015 take place in the Gateway Ballroom adjacent to the exhibit hall. Exhibit hours start at 10am; keynotes at 9:00, and keynotes are open to all attendees and exhibitors Monday through Thursday, June 8 – 11, 2015. This year’s keynote topics will include Google’s Smart Contact Lens project, Delphi’s take on the increase in embedded software and electrical/ electronic systems in automotive, an in-depth chat on vehicle security, and MacArthur Fellow and University of Illinois professor John Rogers on biocompatible electronics.

In addition to the keynotes, DAC is please to host a visionary talk on Tuesday, June 9. “Moore’s Law at Fifty: No End in Sight” will be presented prior to Tuesday’s keynote address by Vivek Singh, Intel Fellow and director of computational lithography in Intel's Technology and Manufacturing Group.

DAC, the premier conference devoted to the design and automation of electronic systems, offers outstanding training, education, exhibits and networking opportunities for hardware designers, researchers, software developers and tool vendors. The 52nd DAC will be held at Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif. from June 7- 11, 2015. Early registration, which offers attendees substantial discounts, runs from April 1 to May 12, 2015.

DAC 2015 Keynote Schedule

Monday, June 8: Brian Otis, co-founder of the Google Smart Lens project

Title: Google Smart Lens: IC Design and Beyond

Abstract: We have amazingly sparse access to information about our own bodies. Indeed, the healthier we are, the less data we collect. Technologies to continually monitor critical biomarkers are still in their infancy, but continuing advances in chip design and biocompatible system integration will help define the next generation of these devices. Against the backdrop of the Google Smart Contact Lens platform, Dr. Otis will share thoughts on the scarcity of power, extreme miniaturization, and end-to-end connected systems that span the design space from transistors to the cloud.

Along the way, he’ll cover chip design techniques for body-worn systems and wireless sensors and present examples of constantly-connected devices for improving healthcare. These areas present tough unsolved problems at the interface between the IC and the outside world that cannot be solved by transistor technology scaling alone. The interface between silicon and the human body is highly variable, erratic, and messy. This unpredictability impacts sensor performance, RF/electromagnetic performance, system reliability, tolerability and comfort, etc. Several future applications will demand thin-film realization and biocompatibility of complex systems. Novel power sources, low power IC design techniques, microscale user interface technologies, and new system integration techniques will be a few of the enabling technologies for these emerging systems.

Tuesday, June 9: Jeffrey Owens, CTO of Delphi

Title: The Design of Innovation that Drives Tomorrow

Abstract: When people think of high tech-devices, they rarely think of their cars, trucks or vans. Similar to the computational power of the human brain, today’s vehicles possess more processing power than anything most consumers own or will purchase. A typical car is equipped with more than 50 computers designed to operate at automotive-grade capabilities for an extended period of time.

Vehicle manufacturers and automotive suppliers around the world are responding to a myriad of consumer preferences and regulatory initiatives -- including enhanced safety features, increased fuel economy, reduced emissions and connectivity.

Vehicles of the future will require increased amounts of embedded software and electrical/ electronic systems. Addressing this dynamic will require significant design automation aids to handle extreme complexity. Electronics and design automation will play a critical role in shaping the future of automotive by providing design technology that helps save lives, protect the environment and provide a satisfying in-car experience for drivers and passengers alike

Wednesday, June 10: John McElroy, producer of Autoline Detroit will guide an in-depth chat between Jeffrey Massimilla, chief of cybersecurity at GM, and Craig Smith, author of the Car Hacker Manual.

Title: Cyber Threats to Connected Cars: Staying Safe Requires More Than Following the Rules of the Road

Abstract: Cars increasingly are networked computing platforms and with this burgeoning connectivity comes more vulnerability to possible cyber attacks. We expect our vehicles to continue to evolve and support Internet capabilities via WiFi and cellular data networks, connect to our mobile computing platforms via Bluetooth, provide GPS navigation assistance, and automatically link to the manufacturer to help with diagnostics. However, all those connectivity features could create entry points for hackers. Can we make our cars more secure? Or should we accept the fact that they are as vulnerable as our computers at home? Come hear from the real experts on stage.
