ESD Alliance, 11 Member Companies at DVCon in San Jose Next Week
February 19th, 2018 by Bob Smith, Executive Director
San Jose should be hopping next week as chip design verification enthusiasts from all over arrive for the annual DVCon conference and exposition that runs Monday through Thursday, February 26-March 1, at the DoubleTree Hotel.
If you plan to attend, stop by our tabletop in the foyer directly across from the entrance to the exhibit area. You can find out about the ESD Alliance’s charter, programs, initiatives and ongoing events. Exhibitors and attendees can pick up copies of its latest newsletter and giveaways for members and companies interested in joining.
While Monday’s a full day of tutorials, attendees will stick around for the DVCon Expo and Reception that will be held from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. The exhibit floor is open Tuesday, February 27, and Wednesday, February 28, from 2:30 p.m. until 6 p.m. as well. The tutorial program continues Thursday.
Attendees will find a good number of our members on the exhibit floor. They include:
Altair Engineering, Booth #404
AMIQ EDA, Booth #405
Blue Pearl, #701
Breker Verification Systems, Booth #304
Cadence, Booth #702
Mentor, a Siemens Business, Booth #1101
OneSpin, Booth #902
Real Intent, Booth #402
Sigasi, Booth #601
Synopsys, Booth #101

Many of these same companies will offer presentations, tutorials, lunches and collocated events, and may be part of the poster sessions. One or two will be represented on one of Wednesday’s panels. Synopsys’ Christopher Tice will give the keynote titled, “Industry’s Next Challenge: The Petacycle Challenge.” That will be held Tuesday at 1:30 p.m.
DVCon is sponsored by the industry initiative Accellera. Exhibits-only registration is free and includes the keynote and panels. For details on the full-conference registration, go to the DVCon website at: www.dvcon.org
