In less than 6 years, Savant’s highly targeted International SoC Conferences have become the most important SoC, ASIC, CSSP, ASSP, and FPGA design event in the chip-design community on a worldwide basis.

“Multi-core SoC designs are getting more complex and challenging as the industry moves toward sub-45nm geometries,” said Ted Vucurevich, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at Cadence Design Systems, Inc. “The 7th International SoC Conference provides an outstanding venue for the electronics industry to address some of the most important challenges and issues in designing and developing complex SoCs.”

“From highly integrated single-chip smart phones to innovative BioChips, new chip designs are being architected and designed using complex System-on-Chip methodologies and approaches,” said Dr. Goran Matijasevic, Director of Research Development, The Henry Samueli School of Engineering, UC Irvine. “Each year, in a very informative and targeted forum, the International SoC Conference addresses various aspects of the SoC/ASIC architecture, design, and implementation by introducing the best practical technologies that industry and academia has been developing.”

“The annual International SoC Conference has become the premier event for the engineering community designing complex multi-core SoCs, ASICs, and ASSPs,” said Arup Gupta, Director of Wireless Platform Technologies, Ultra Mobility Group, Intel Corporation. “I strongly recommend this outstanding event to anyone who is involved in designing complex ICs.”

“The theme for this year’s SoC Conference has been dedicated to new paradigms in chip integration,” said Farhad Mafie, President and CEO of Savant Company Inc. “In a dedicated track, we will be reviewing the latest FPGA devices and FPGA development tools with some of the most well-known experts in the field. Similar to our past events, we will be addressing the most innovative technologies, methodologies, tools, and embedded approaches for design and development of complex multi-core SoCs, ASICs, CSSPs, and ASSPs in the emerging markets.”
