DAC Designer Track
brings together IC designers and embedded software developers from across the globe. Designers and software developers from Intel, IBM, Samsung, TI, Toshiba, Qualcomm, AMD, Freescale, and other leading IC companies will present their design experiences on effective design flows, methods, and tool usage. Designer Track will include presentation/poster sessions, panels and invited talks. It offers a unique opportunity to network with and learn from other industry experts. There is no other way to improve your “design IQ” in such a short amount of time.
Designer Track submissions may describe the overall design and/or application of tools for creating the hardware and/or software components of a novel electronic system. Regular submissions will be accepted in the following categories:
1. Front end silicon design (FE): Front end architecture, design and verification of System-on-Chip (SoC) including major components such as CPU, GPU, and DSP.
2. Back end silicon design (BE): Back end design and verification of SoC, major sub-systems and constituent components (CPU, GPU and DSP).
3. Embedded Systems and Software (ESS): Design and modeling of entire embedded systems and associated software.
Designer Track regular submissions are in the form of a slide presentation. Regular presentation time is 15 minutes (including 3 minutes Q&A). Hence, the submitted slide presentation for review should not have more than 12 slides. Clearly designated back-up slides (beyond the first 12 slides) may be included for additional information aimed at reviewers. Links to example slide presentations from previous years can be found in the DAC Archives.
