Leading Design for Quality & Manufacturability™

Advance Registration Deadline:  March 14, 2007

The International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design (ISQED) is a leading Electronic Design & Design Automation conference, aimed at bridging the gap among electronic design tools and processes, integrated circuit technologies, processes & manufacturing, to achieve design quality. ISQED is the pioneer and leading international conference dealing with design for manufacturability and quality issues front-to-back. ISQED emphasizes a holistic approach toward electronic design and intends to highlight and accelerate cooperation among the IC Design, EDA, Semiconductor Process Technology and Manufacturing communities. ISQED spans three days, Monday through Wednesday, in three parallel tracks, hosting over100 technical presentations, keynote speakers, panel discussions, workshops/tutorials and other informal meetings.

 

Registration

Please refer to ISQED web site at www.isqed.org for information regarding the tutorials, conference, tutorials, and hotel registration. Direct all conference inquiries to isqed@isqed.org. Take advantage of the discounted registration fee by registering prior to March 14. Complementary registration to exhibits is available and entitles the attendees to participate in free iPod drawings.


Conference Highlights

Plenary Sessions

Two plenary sessions will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Several industry leaders will discuss the issues surrounding electronic design, design for yield and manufacturability and other critical topics from various point of views. List of keynote speakers includes:

 

Jeong-Taek Kong, Vice President, Samsung, Korea
Joe Sawicki, GM and VP, Mentor Graphics, USA
Marc Duranton, Principal Scientist, NXP Semiconductors
Marc Derbey, CEO iRoC Technologies

About ISQED
The International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design (ISQED), is a premier Design & Design Automation conference, aimed at bridging the gap between and integration of, electronic design tools and processes, integrated circuit technologies, processes & manufacturing, to achieve design quality. ISQED is the pioneer and leading conference dealing with design for manufacturability and quality  issues front-to-back. The conference provides a forum to present and exchange ideas and to promote the research, development, and application of design techniques & methods, design processes, and EDA design methodologies and tools that address issues which impact the quality of the realization of designs into physical integrated circuits. The conference attendees are primarily designers of the VLSI circuits & systems (IP & SoC), those involved in the research, development, and application of EDA/CAD Tools & design flows, process/device technologists, and semiconductor manufacturing specialists including equipment vendors. ISQED emphasizes a holistic approach toward design quality and intends to highlight and accelerate cooperation among the IC Design, EDA, Semiconductor Process Technology and Manufacturing communities.
