8th International Symposium & Exhibits on
QUALITY ELECTRONIC DESIGN
March 26-28, 2007. San Jose, CA, USA
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
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
Sanjiv Taneja, VP and GM, Cadence Design Systems
ISQED is pleased to offer two high-power panel discussion sessions, where many leading experts, highlight and address the important issue surrounding the quality electronic design. The first panel is held during Monday evening dinner, and the second one is held during Wednesday Lunch. These panels would focus on the following topics:
1 DFM: EDA’s salvation or its excuse for being out of touch with engineering?
2 Do Digital Design and Variability Mix Like Oil and Water ?
EDA to the Rescue of Silicon Roadmap
Thomas W. Williams, Fellow, Synopsys
