Minalogic, the French innovation cluster dedicated to smart systems integration and digital solutions, will accompany 9 innovative French companies and 2 labs at the Design Automation Conference (DAC), the USA's premier conference for design and automation of electronic systems. The French delegation of companies includes Asygn, CWS, DeFacTo Technologies, Docea Power, EdXact, InfiniScale, Iroc Technologies, Magillem and Xyalis, as well as the CEA Tech Leti and CMP labs.
During the 5 days of the conference, which runs from June 7 to 11, Minalogic will showcase the breadth and depth of skills of the electronic design automation (EDA) companies based in the Grenoble-Isère area of France. In addition, the cluster will promote the numerous existing synergies and mutually beneficial long-term partnerships established between the companies and the local R&D labs over the last 10 years, since the foundation of Minalogic in 2005.
Ranked as one of the 5 most inventive cities in the world (Forbes 2013), Grenoble is one of the premier locations for EDA across the globe. With industry leaders like ARM, Atrenta, Mentor Graphics and Synopsys, the region encompasses each link of the EDA value chain: from design to development to equipment manufacturing, as well as cleanroom environments and related services. Moreover, the companies and R&D labs in Grenoble benefit from the proximity to major manufacturers (STMicroelectronics, Soitec, e2V) and world's top universities.
With over 25,000 jobs and 1,200 graduates in the field of micro-nanotechnologies & electronics, the region benefits from a unique culture of collaboration between R&D, academia and industry.
By fostering collaboration and open innovation, the Minalogic cluster contributes to the realization of the great innovation potential of the French EDA companies.
Monday June 8th, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm - W Hotel, 181 3rd St, San Francisco
Together with AEPI (the Grenoble-Isère Economic Development Agency) and CEA-Leti, Minalogic is honored to invite you to a Networking Event bringing together the Grenoble delegation and other EDA industry leaders attending DAC.
During the event, Philippe Magarshack, President of Minalogic and CTO Embedded Processing Solutions at STMicroelectronics, will introduce the cluster highlighting its key competitive advantages.
Dr. Jan Rabaey, Donald O. Pederson Distinguished Professorship at UC Berkeley, will deliver a speech on "Design Trends and EDA Challenges, from Connected Objects to Cloud Computing".
The participants will celebrate the launch of Silicon Impulse, the new IC design competence center hosted by CEA-Leti in Grenoble. This center is entirely dedicated to designing innovative Silicon Products based on disruptive innovation, such as FD-SOI, which are led by major industry leaders based in the Grenoble region.
