(NYSE: ARW), announced that it will join Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) to host SOPC (system-on-a-programmable-chip) World in four cities, including Bangalore (Oct. 14)) and Dehli (Oct. 16) in India, and Shenzhen (Oct. 20), Hangzhou (Oct. 22), and Beijing (Oct. 24) in mainland China.

“Designers face increasing challenges such as lower system costs, tight power budgets, increased productivity and working in cooperation with global teams. At the same time, they have to stay competitive, and applications require higher performance levels, better signal integrity, and the ability to deliver more and better features than currently available,” said CC Lim, vice president of marketing for Arrow Asia Pac. “The Altera SOPC World conference and exhibition allows attendees to learn about the most advanced, energy efficient programmable devices and the productivity-enhancing development tools available from Altera, Arrow and other partners.”

Comprised of technical sessions and exhibitions, SOPC World is an annual conference organized by Altera and its business partners. Engineers, designers, device manufacturers, and industry executives and managers will learn how Altera’s programmable logic solutions address the system-level design issues of today and tomorrow.
