The conference is being held on July 15-16, 2009 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This is the first ASQED event in Asia. The conference is poised to play a critical role in promoting quality-based electronic design and manufacturing in Asia and be an integral part of establishing a communication link between semiconductor disciplines such as design, design methodologies, manufacturing, test, and packaging.
“Quality of design is a highly important and multi-faceted issue requiring expert collaboration,” said Dr. Chi-Foon Chan, President and COO of Synopsys and the 1st ASQED keynote speaker. “ASQED is a key forum for addressing quality of design challenges and their effect on both manufacturing and the end user.”
Powerful Keynotes Headline Conference
The list of plenary keynoters offers a comprehensive perspective from design, process, and tool methodologies. Keynoters include:
Dr. Chi-Foon Chan, President and COO,
Professor Takashi Tomita, Solar Quest, RCAST, the University of Tokyo
Mr. Joseph Fjelstad, Founder and President, Verdant Electronics
Dr. Hans Rijns, Vice President, head of Research, NXP Semiconductors, Netherlands
Dr. Charlie Huang, SVP & Chief Strategy Officer, Cadence Design Systems
“ASQED’s goal is to promote ideas, techniques, and methodologies for solving real design quality problems,” said Dr. Hans Rijns, Vice President, head of Research of NXP Semiconductors, and ASQED’09 keynote speaker. “I will address one of the major quality topics which is variability causes and effects in advanced CMOS processes and the implication and solutions for mixed-signal designs.”
Sponsors, Supporters. Exhibits
ASQED’09 is the first Asian event organized by the International Society for Quality Electronic Design (ISQED.org). The Symposium is organized with the Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MIGHT) and the Malaysian Institute of Microsystems (MIMs) with support from the Malaysian Industrial Development Authority (MIDA).
ASQED’09 is aimed at bridging the gap among electronic design tools and processes, integrated circuit technologies, processes & manufacturing, to achieve design quality. The conference emphasizes innovations and the latest developments in IC and system Design, EDA, Semiconductor Process Technology, IC Packaging, Test, and Manufacturing communities. ASQED’09 spans two days, Wednesday through Thursday, in three parallel tracks, hosting over 60 technical presentations, several keynote speakers, tutorials and other informal meetings. Conference proceedings will be published by IEEE and posted in the digital library.
