Management Day at the 50th DAC to Discuss the Tradeoffs Involved in Modern SoC Design
May 13, 2013
LOUISVILLE, Colo. –– May 13, 2013 –– The Design Automation Conference (DAC), celebrating its 50th year as the premier conference devoted to electronic design, design automation, embedded systems and software, announces that Management Day will be on Tuesday June 4th 2013. The 50th DAC will be held at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas from June 2-7, 2011. Management Day will begin at 10:30am on Tuesday, June 4, and is sponsored by Chip Estimate.
“The management tradeoffs and
decisions made involved in successfully undertaking the design of a modern SoC
are getting more and more complex,” said Yervant Zorian of Synopsys, General
Chair of the 50th DAC and also the organizer of Management Day.
“This program allows managers and their designers to listen to experienced senior
managers sharing their know-how with optimization of designs and practices in key
decision making such as process node and supplier.”
Day is comprised of two sessions, which feature presentations by senior
executives and managers representing systems houses and suppliers to the design
Session 1, from 10.30-12-00pm
covers Tradeoffs and Choice for Emerging
SoCs. Today's SoC industry requires multiple types of optimization to adopt
advanced solutions that meet stringent design requirements. Optimizing for
volume production, low power, and shrinking sizes in globally distributed
companies necessitate adequate trade-off analysis and technical/business
decision-making by management.
The speakers are:
Powers of Fulbright and Jaworski LLP
Martino, Vice-president of Automotive R&D at Freescale
Chang, Corporate vice-president of Mediatek, Taiwan
Session 2, from 2-4pm covers Decision Making for Complex SoCs. Moving
to new semiconductor technology nodes for complex ICs can significantly affect
the choices of design flow, methodologies and suppliers. This session will
cover the challenges of complex chip design and present corresponding
management decision criteria that allow managers to make the right choices from
a pool of alternate options.
The speakers are:
Sup Kim, Vice president of Design Technology for Samsung Electronics
Parker, Engineering director for Tools and Methodology at LSI
Berridge, Microprocessor Design and Automation Manager for IBM
Madge, Director of Design Enabled Manufacturing for GLOBALFOUNDRIES
Management Day presentations are
all in room 17AB. Full details of Management Day are on the DAC website at www.dac.com.
DAC is celebrating its 50th
year as the premier conference devoted to the design and automation of
electronic systems, is the oldest and largest conference focused on EDA,
embedded systems and software (ESS), and intellectual property (IP). The first
DAC was held in 1964 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Half a century later, DAC
2013 is a not-to-miss occasion for the worldwide community of system designers,
system architects, IC designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior
managers, executives, researchers and academics. Along with a robust technical program,
the DAC Executive Committee has planned several memorable and exciting events
listed below. Details of the event
schedule can be found at www.dac.com under 50th
DAC Celebration events.
June 2 – 5:30pm, Welcome Reception, Austin Convention Center
June 3 – 5:00pm, Global Forum Exhibition unveiling, exhibit floor, booth
June 3 - 8:00pm, 50th DAC Celebration Event at Austin City
Limits. All DAC attendees and exhibitors are invited.
June 5 – 7:30pm, 50th DAC Awards Banquet, Four Seasons Hotel Austin
Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier event for the
design of electronic circuits and systems, and for electronic design automation
(EDA) and silicon solutions. A diverse worldwide community representing more
than 1,000 organizations attends each year, represented by system designers and
architects, logic and circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers,
senior managers and executives to researchers and academicians from leading
universities. Close to 60 technical sessions selected by a committee of
electronic design experts offer information on recent developments and trends,
management practices and new products, methodologies and technologies. A
highlight of DAC is its exhibition and suite area with approximately 200 of the
leading and emerging EDA, silicon, intellectual property (IP) and design
services providers. The conference is sponsored by the Association for
Computing Machinery (ACM), the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDA
Consortium), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE),
and is supported by ACM's Special Interest Group on Design.
