DATE 2013 will be opened by plenary keynote speakers Dr. Benedetto Vigna, Vice President of STMicroelectronics, who will give a presentation addressing Smart Systems for the Internet of Things, and professor Massoud Pedram from the University of Southern California, who will talk on Creating a Sustainable Information and Communication Infrastructure.
The International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design will take place Monday, March 4 through Wednesday, March 6, 2013 at TechMart, Santa Clara. The event includes free admission to select presentations and exhibits. ISQED 2013 conference includes 22 technical sessions, close to one hundred papers, keynotes, tutorials, workshops and exhibits. The event will focus on the latest innovations and developments in electronic design and manufacturing.
Avnet Electronics Marketing, Freescale, Murata and ARM are teaming together to host a series of SpeedWay technical seminars. The development board transforms the Freescale Freedom development platform into a completely portable wireless sensor system. The SpeedWay events will discuss ways to incorporate the Wi-Go wireless accessory module with the Freescale Freedom development platform featuring the Kinetis-L microcontrollers. The workshops feature both in-person presentations and hands-on labs.
Apache Design, Inc. is sponsoring two Chip-Package-System (CPS) workshops at DesignCon 2012. The two in-depth technical workshops will provide designers with an open forum for exchanging the latest ideas and information on the most current technologies. In the interactive workshops, leading semiconductor companies and system houses will share perspectives and best practices on chip and package modeling, and system-level verification for signal integrity, power integrity, electromagnetic interference and thermal. The workshops are free. However, seating is limited and registration is required.
XJTAG will host a free workshop. The event will explain how boundary scan testing can help board designers and engineers. The boundary scan workshop is designed to provide design, development, test, and production engineers with a practical hands-on introduction to boundary scan. Engineers will learn how boundary scan can be used right across the product lifecycle to improve designs, reduce respins and enhance test coverage, fault diagnosis and production yields on complex BGA-populated circuits. The Introductory to Boundary Scan workshop will take place Wednesday, February 29, 2012 at XJTAG’s Cambridge headquarters.
Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas is offering a series of data converters seminars. The Data Converter SpeedWay Design Workshop will provide engineers with a methodology to navigate the entire data converter ecosystem and realize their full performance. Special attention is paid to understanding the factors needed to consider when selecting an appropriate converter for an application. The seminars will be taught by technical specialists from Avnet and Texas Instruments (TI). The events will place in five cities within the next 30 days.
The 9th International System-on-Chip (SoC) Conference will take place November 2 and 3, 2011 at the Radisson Hotel Newport Beach, California. The SoC features technical presentations, exhibits, IEEE-OC Tech Job Fair, networking opportunities, panel discussions, keynotes, and IEEE-OC Student Design Contest. The International SoC Conference is ideal for engineers involved in designing new ICs or IPs on a worldwide basis.
Avnet Electronics Marketing and Texas Instruments are teaming together on a series of SpeedWay Design Workshops. The seminars will provide an introduction to wireless design for hardware and software engineers who need to add wireless connectivity features to their products. The training events cost $25 to attend. Each attendee will receive a TI eZ430-Chronos wireless watch development kit ($49 value). The SpeedWay Design Workshops will held in almost 40 cities throughout North America.
ISMI is hosting a series of workshops in their Equipment Productivity Forum. The workshops explore equipment solutions for wafer fabs. The equipment workshops unite suppliers with fab equipment owners to solve equipment issues. Participants give and receive feedback on top equipment issues and benchmark equipment performance metrics, share best-known-methods, and discuss real life maintenance, equipment engineering and parts challenges. The meeting structure protects IP by allowing suppliers to present sensitive information individually to IC manufacturers without other suppliers present.
NXP and Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas are offering a series USB Made Easy workshops. The Speedway Design Workshop series will show how NXP microcontrollers are making the task of developing USB enabled devices faster and speeding time to market. The courses will also feature hands-on labs. The training starts in July and will be held in multiple cities. The USB Made Easy workshops cost $99 to attend.
