Founded in 1964, DAC is one of the longest running conferences especially tailored to the design and automation of electronic circuits and systems. And, according to Technical Program Chair Harry Foster (Mentor), an industry authority and sought-after expert on formal verification, 2019 was a record year in terms of research paper submissions and accepted papers: 815 papers were submitted, and 202 accepted (35% EDA; 32% Design; 17% Embedded Systems and 16% Security/Safety/ Autonomous Systems). Just these numbers are a clear sign, that the DAC is still going strong. Full article: EEPower, Henning Wriedt
The Design Automation Conference is coming up soon. It's in Las Vegas from June 2 to 6 in the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC). I was putting together a post on what I thought were good reasons to attend, but I decided to call up Rob Aitken of Arm, who is this year's general chair, and get his perspective, too.Full Article
Some of the most valuable events at DAC are the IP Track sessions, which give small- and medium-sized companies a chance to share innovations that might not get much attention elsewhere. Full Article: ChipEstimate.com, Ty Garibay
Today, autonomous vehicles are being road tested, but their future depends on whether automakers can develop production line tests on mass-produced vehicles to ensure they’re safe. Full article: Electronic Design, Sam Davis

Redwood City, CALIF. –– October 18, 2017 –– Dr. Rob A. Rutenbar, senior vice chancellor for Research at the University of Pittsburgh, has been selected as the recipient of the 2017 Phil Kaufman Award for Distinguished Contributions to Electronic System Design.
The award is presented yearly by the Electronic System Design Alliance (ESD Alliance) and the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA). The award ceremony and dinner will be held in Silicon Valley, Calif., Thursday, February 8. More details will be available shortly.
Dr. Rutenbar is being honored for his pioneering contributions to algorithms and tools for analog and mixed-signal designs. As an academic, he developed a wide...
After two years in Austin, the Design Automation Conference is returning to San Franciscofor two good reasons: The City’s Moscone Convention Center has been thoroughly remodeled since DAC’s last visit in 2015 – enlarged, reworked, modernized – and the industries that fuel DAC – electronic design automation, system design, IP, and embedded systems – have a powerful and historic presence in Silicon Valley, a where place many in these disciplines work and live.
This was my 34th DAC, yes 34. It is a shame blogging did not exist back then because I would have liked to have read thoughts from my eager young mind, or maybe not. The first thing that struck me this year is the great content. Full article: Daniel Nenni
AUSTIN, Texas — “IoT is in a bit of a trough right now,” Tyson Tuttle, CEO of Silicon Labs, told EE Times, just as he was leaving the ballroom where he delivered a keynote entitled “Accelerating the IoT” to a packed audience at the Design Automation Conference. Full article: Junko Yoshida
