Invitation to hear John Blyer, editor-in-chief of Chip Design, discuss:
“Semiconductor Trends in 2008: Findings and Implications”
The last five years have been very profitable for the worldwide ASIC/FPGA, EDA, and semiconductor equipment markets.
However, continued globalization of chip design and manufacturing processes coupled with industry cycles, the move to lower process geometries, and the rise of IP suggest that future growth will be targeted to specific areas within the industry.
In his presentation, John will talk about:
- Specific trends in chip start fundamentals, power, performance, area, and more
- Regions and segments poised for the fastest growth
- IP’s biggest potential and shortfall
- Fatiguing Moore’s Law
- Long-term growth potential for the chip industry
