Is U.S. Chip Industry on Fast Track to Innovation?

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Feb 04, 2008 -- Are chip companies "Accelerating the Innovation in the Semiconductor Industry?"

That will be the central question that 80+ US "C-level" executives will discuss with more than 50 international trade and business journalists from 15 countries during the annual Globalpress Connection Electronics Summit, to be held Monday, March 31, through Thursday, April 3, at the Kabuki Hotel in San Francisco.

"A turbulent six years have passed since our first Globalpress gathering, at which 'Leading the Recovery' was the theme," said Irmgard Lafrentz, company founder and president. "This year we'll be debating whether we're finally out of the woods."

High on the Summit's innovation agenda will be presentations and panels on topics such as reducing power consumption, and designs for new form factors.

"One full day of the conference is dedicated to industry start-ups -- always a reliable font of innovative technologies and products, and particularly popular with international editors," Lafrentz said.

Keynoters at this year's Summit include speakers from Xilinx, Mentor Graphics, and Actel, while attending journalists include editors and reporters from China, Korea, Taiwan and Korea as well as from Germany, the United Kingdom, France and other European countries. Guest moderators include Tim Bajarin, principal analyst of Creative Strategies; Ron Wilson, senior editor of EDN Worldwide; and Gary Smith, principal of GarySmithEDA.
