IP/SoC 2001 Celebrates Five Years; Showcases New Technology Redefining Chip Design

Apr 16, 2001, 01:00 ET from CMP Media LLC

    ATLANTA, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The week of March 19 marked the
 IP/System-on-Chip Conference and Exhibition's (IP/SoC 2001) fifth anniversary.
 More than 700 industry professionals attended IP/SoC 2001, which was co-
 located this year with the PCB Design Conference West, March 19-23, at the
 Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif.
     "The conference provided the latest design solutions to engineers and
 engineering management involved in the development of electronic systems and
 system-on-chip applications," said Show Director Pete Waddell.  "Attendees
 found practical and proven solutions to help increase the knowledge of the
 methodologies and technologies that are driving the evolutionary processes
 involved in today's sophisticated designs."
     Conference highlights included keynote speaker Joe Pumo of Motorola
 presenting "SoC Design in the Real World: From the Notebook of an Engineering
 Manager."  By discussing the challenges and successes that he and his team
 have faced and met during his tenure at one of the world's largest
 semiconductor companies, he provided attendees with an industry guru's
 perspective on guiding a design team through the maze of decisions presented
 by tough SoC designs.
     In addition, conference sessions were held on a variety of topics,
 including new SoC verification techniques and making the most of user-
 configurable microprocessor cores.  Free paper sessions were also available to
 attendees.
 
     IP/SoC 2001 Business Forum
     The IP/SoC Business Forum -- a business and networking event focused on
 the future of the semiconductor IP business -- attracted nearly 70 editors,
 analysts and buyers and sellers of semiconductor intellectual property (IP).
 Held March 19 in conjunction with the conference, the forum began with a panel
 debate on IP: Build vs. Buy, moderated by Michael Santarini, senior technology
 analyst for EDA and Cores at EE Times.  Eric Chen, senior analyst for enabling
 semiconductor technologies at JP Morgan H&Q, delivered his keynote speech on
 "Rethinking Semiconductor Intellectual Property," with a discussion on the
 little understood dynamics of the industry.  The forum ended with a
 reactionary panel of leading executives from IP providers MIPS, Parthus
 Technologies and ARM, as well as a market and financial analyst from Gartner
 Dataquest.  The panel was moderated by Richard Goering, group editorial
 director for design automation at EE Times and CMP's Electronics Group.
 
     About IP/SoC 2001
