ISQED Asia Symposium on Quality Electronic Design

The International Society for Quality Electronic Design ( announced the “1st Asia Symposium on Quality Electronic Design” (ISQED-ASIA’09). This event which will take place on July 15-16 of 2009 in KL Malaysia, is the first event organized by ISQED organization in continental Asia. ISQED-ASIA’09 will span two days, Wednesday and Thursday, in three parallel tracks, hosting over 60 technical presentations; several keynote speakers, tutorials and other informal meetings. Conference proceedings are planned to be published by IEEE and posted in the digital library.

The event is sponsored and managed by Selangor Human Resource Development Centre (SHRDC) of Malaysia. In continuations of 10 years of successful leadership by ISQED conference in USA, ISQED-ASIA’09 aims to bridge the gap among electronic design tools and processes, integrated circuit technologies, processes & manufacturing, to achieve design quality.

The conference is now accepting papers, keynotes, and tutorial proposals in the following areas:

  • Electronic Design Automation Methodologies
  • Circuit & System Design
  • Test & Verification
  • Semiconductor Technology & Manufacturing
  • IC Packaging Technology
  • PCB and PWB Technology & Manufacturing
  • Semiconductor Technology & Manufacturing
  • Nano and Bio Electronics Innovations
  • Photovoltaic Technology & Manufacturing

The International Society for Quality Electronic Design (, established in 1999, is a professional organization devoted to highlight, promote, and accelerate establishment of industry-wide targets for the “Quality” of the integrated circuit designs, and helping to develop metrics & standards for quality electronic design front to back. The mission of ISQED is to provide forums to present & exchange ideas and to promote research, development, and application of Design Methods, Design Processes, Semiconductor technologies, IC packaging, Test, EDA Design Tools, and Methodologies, employed for Design of Integrated Circuits, with focus on design for quality, manufacturing, yield, and reliability. emphasizes a holistic approach toward electronic design and intends to highlight and accelerate cooperation among the IC Design, EDA, Semiconductor Process Technology, IC Packaging, Test, and Manufacturing communities. The International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design (ISQED) is the flagship conference of and has been held successfully for 10 years in California, USA.

SELANGOR HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT CENTRE (“SHRDC”) is the sponsor and manager of the ISQED-Asia’09. SHRDC was set-up as a response to the Malaysian Government’s call for closer co-operation between the government and private sector to overcome the short supply as well as upgrade the quality and skill levels of the human resource in the State of Selangor. SHRDC rose to the challenge with the strategic provision of technical and technological training in the competency format.
