Industry Leaders to Keynote at ISQED 2002

Leading Technology Conference Further Extends Program with Workshops on State-of-the-Art Design Approaches

SAN JOSE, Calif., – Feb. 13, 2002 – The third annual International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design (ISQED) today announced eight keynotes from various industry and academia leaders to discuss the issues surrounding quality in electronic design. In addition, ISQED has added multiple interactive workshops for those who desire in-depth, interactive, and focused insight into the various aspects of electronic design. The conference is being held on March 18-21, 2002 at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose, CA.

“This technical conference underscores establishing a communication link between all semiconductor disciplines – design, mask, manufacturing, and test,” said Jim Kupec, president, UMC (USA) and ISQED keynote speaker. “This is critical in order to achieve design and semiconductor quality for the next-generation of integrated circuits.”

Powerful Keynotes Headline 2002 Conference

The list of plenary keynoters will offer comprehensive perspective from design, process, and tool methodologies. Keynoters include:

  • Jim Kupec, president, UMC USA
  • Y.C. (Buno) Pati, president and CEO, Numerical Technologies
  • Atiq Raza, chairman and CEO, Raza Foundries
  • John Chilton, senior vice president and general manager, Intellectual Property and Systems Group, Synopsys, Inc.
  • Y. David Lepejian, president and CEO, HPL
  • Bob Brodersen, Department of EECS, University of California, Berkeley
  • Chan Shin Wu, president and CEO, WIN Semiconductors
  • Ulf Schlichtmann, senior director, Infineon Technologies AG

“ISQED is becoming a leading technology conference for the IC design industry,” said John Chilton, senior vice president and general manager, Intellectual Property and Systems Group, Synopsys, Inc. “Bringing together best-of-breed design tools, techniques, and methodologies will not only help accelerate cooperation, it will also enable the proliferation of knowledge to enhance the quality of system-on-a-chip design.”

New, Advanced Workshops – Thursday, March 21

ISQED 2002 has added advanced workshops for those who desire in-depth, interactive, and focused insight into the various aspects of electronic design.

Three workshops are planned for ISQED 2002 as follows:

  • RF IC Design For Wireless Communications

About the International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design

International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design, is a premier Design and Design Automation conference, aimed at bridging the gap between an integration of, electronic design tools and processes, integrated circuit technologies, processes & manufacturing, to achieve design quality. The conference provides a design forum to present and exchange ideas and to promote the research, development, and application of design techniques and methods, design processes, and EDA design methodologies and tools that address issues which impact the quality of the realization of designs into physical integrated circuits.

ISQED 2002 is held in cooperation with IEEE Computer Society (Design Automation, VLSI Design, and Test Technology TC), IEEE Electron Device Society, ACM/sigDA, and FSA. The conference is produced and sponsored by the International Society for Quality Electronic Design.
