48th DAC Announces Pavilion Panels Featuring Interviews, Business Trends and Technology Advances.

GLOBALFOUNDRIES sponsors program focused on key industry trends and issues

LOUISVILLE, Colo. -- The 48th Design Automation Conference (DAC), the premier conference devoted to design and design automation of electronic systems, will feature no less than 18 Pavilion Panel sessions in the program lineup for DAC 2011. Complementing the more in-depth DAC technical conference program, the DAC Pavilion, sponsored by GLOBALFOUNDRIES hosts an eclectic mix of panels, presentations and interviews in Booth #3421 on the exhibit floor. DAC 2011 will be held at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California, from June 5-10, 2011.

"DAC is all about a close and dynamic interaction between designers, developers, their management and EDA vendors," said Leon Stok, General Chair of DAC 2011. "We are especially exited about this year's DAC pavilion lineup, which brings lively debates on technical topics as well as general interest such as career development."

Gary Smith kicks off the Pavilion program with his annual "Trends and What's Hot at DAC" presentation on Monday, June 6th, from 9:15-10:15am. Other program highlights include:

* Emerging technology panels on: tool, methodology, and infrastructure challenges of 3-D IC; the need for more accurate modeling and simulation technologies for 3-D extraction

* System-level design: a debate about strengths and weaknesses of today's high-level synthesis (HLS) tools

* Women in Electronic Design Careers panel on the excitement of being an engineer and an interview with this year's Marie R. Pistilli award winner, Limor Fix of Intel

* Business panels on: what EDA isn't doing right; integrity issues in the global IP market; current changes in semiconductor ecosystem value aggregation

* Synthesis and FPGA: discussions of whether C-to-FPGA tools are ready for the mass market; how IP stimulates innovation and drives new business models

* Verification and test: panel on current verification methodologies, which technologies look good going forward, and how to use ROI as a criteria to evaluate tools

* Embedded systems and software: The challenges facing multicore embedded systems development; where we are going with Android, MeeGo, and Linux;

* Analog/mixed-signal/RF design: panel discussingthe need to speed up the development of analog PDKs

* High school students tell us how they use the latest tech gadgets, and what they expect to be using in three to five years.

* Low-power design: a report card on the methods that have produced the best low-power results.

The Pavilion panel program wraps up at 5:00pm on Wednesday with an interview with Pat Pistilli on invention and reinvention of the EDA industry to meet the design challenges of the next half-century. Pat Pistilli, who shaped DAC since 1964, is the 2010 winner of the prestigious Phil Kaufman Award,

"The concentration of expertise and experience in the DAC Pavilion panels is especially impressive this year," said Yatin Trivedi, DAC 2011 Pavilion Panel Chair. "The combination of expert opinion and debate on technology and trends will help attendees gather new insight and information to help them innovate well into the future of the global electronics market."

About DAC

The 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

Design Automation Conference acknowledges trademarks or registered trademarks of other organizations for their respective products and services.
