UC Irvine Extension Announces Platinum Sponsorship of Tenth Annual International System-on-Chip (SoC) Conference

University of California, Irvine Extension announces a platinum sponsorship of the 10th annual International System-on-Chip (SoC) Conference which will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Irvine, Calif. on Oct. 24-25. The SoC conference is a premier event for engineering communities devoted to chip design and development. The theme for this year’s conference, hosted by Savant Company, Inc, is “Emerging Smart SoC Platforms for a Connected World.”

“UC Irvine Extension continues to participate in these highly educational and informative system-on-chip conferences,” said Dr. Dave Dimas, director of UC Irvine Extension’s engineering, sciences and information technology programs. “This year, Dr. Payam Heydari, the director of UC Irvine’s nanoscale communication integrated circuits (NCIC) labs, is featured as a keynote speaker and will provide conference attendees with a comprehensive overview of terahertz and millimeter-wave imaging and the impact on existing applications. Additionally, Professor Nader Bagherzadeh will be presenting a session on design of robust and reliable routing algorithms for network-on-chip (NoC) architectures at this event.”

The conference provides an outstanding platform for sharing and disseminating groundbreaking research, revolutionary product announcements, and innovative technical tutorials. In addition, it has established itself as a leading forum for debating emerging challenges and possibilities in system-on-chip, VLSI, nanotechnologies and much more.

“This collaboration with UC Irvine Extension will provide an outstanding opportunity for technical professionals to gain insightful industry updates from some of the most highly-recognized hardware and software experts in the industry and in academia,” said Farhad Mafie, SoC conference chairman. “UC Irvine Extension provides unique industry-leading engineering certificate programs for students across the world. We appreciate their continuous support and platinum sponsorship of the conference.”

The conference tabletop exhibit, which is free to attend, is on Wednesday, Oct. 24 from 3:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. It provides an outstanding forum for engineering communities to ask their technical questions face-to-face with experts from the exhibiting companies.

“We are very excited to work with UC Irvine Extension’s engineering programs in our 10th year special anniversary of the International SoC Conference,” said Dr. Sherie Motakef, SoC conference organizing committee and Savant Company CTO. “This year we have increased the overall technical sessions of the SoC Conference to further align the technical content with UC Irvine Extension’s engineering topics.”

UC Irvine Extension’s online certificate program in Embedded Systems Engineering examines the synergistic function between hardware and software device design and development. Participants learn the essential concepts of embedded systems development through a practical hands-on approach utilizing industry design automation (EDA) tools and design kits.
