ISQED 2009 Announces Multiple Interactive Tutorials

The International Society of Quality Electronic Design (ISQED) announced today that its upcoming ISQED’09 conference will feature multiple interactive tutorials in important and diverse topics such as Low Power Variation Tolerant Logic Circuits, Low Power SRAM and FinFET Design, Phase Change Memory, Statistical Techniques for Analog Circuits, 3-D CAD Design/Technology, Multicore Designs, and Design & Verification of Low Power SoCs.

The list of ISQED’09 tutorials includes:

Variation-Tolerant Low-Power Logic Circuits
Swarup Bhunia - Case Western Reserve University
Robust SRAMs in sub-45nm Technology
Kaushik Roy - Purdue University
Phase-Change Memory
Roger Cheek - IBM
Multi-Coring Pros and Cons
Jerry Bautista - Intel
Design and Verification of Low Power SoCs
Yatin Trivedi – Synopsys/Accellera
Statistical techniques for analog circuits
Pat Drennan - Solido Design Automation
New Design Considerations and Computer-Aided Design Opportunities in Emerging 3D Integration Technology
Syed M. Alam - Everspin Technologies
Functional Verification Planning and Management
Andrew Piziali - Consultant, Badri Gopalan - Synopsys
Impact of SoC Power Management Techniques on Verification and Testing
Kaushik Roy - Purdue University - Shireesh Verma, SanDisk

In addition, ISQED’09 features seven keynote speeches by industry leaders, 23 technical sessions with nearly 150 papers in three parallel tracks, panel discussions, and vendor exhibits. The conference will be held on March 16-18, at the Doubletree Hotel in San Jose, Calif.

ISQED’09 recipients of the prestigious IQ-Award, and best paper awards will be announced during a luncheon ceremony, sponsored by Synopsys, on Tuesday March 17th. ISQED’09 Quality Award is sponsored by Mentor Graphics. ISQED best paper awards are sponsored by Magma Design Automation and Synopsys.

ISQED’09 corporate sponsors include Synopsys, Mentor Graphics, Magma Design Automation, Cadence Design Systems, and the Silicon Valley Technical Institute. Media sponsors include EDACafe Chip Design and System-Level Design (SLD) publications. ISQED’09 is held with technical sponsorship of the IEEE Electron Devices Society, and IEEE CASS, and in cooperation with IEEE Reliability Society, and ACM/SigDA. The conference is produced and sponsored by the International Society for Quality Electronic Design.

The International Society for Quality Electronic Design (ISQED), 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 and system designs, and helping to develop metrics and standards for quality electronic design from front-to-back end. The mission of ISQED is to provide forums to present and 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 the design of Integrated Circuits, with a focus on design for quality, manufacturing, yield, and reliability. ISQED emphasizes a holistic approach toward electronic design accelerates the cooperation among the IC design, EDA, semiconductor process technology, IC packaging, test, and manufacturing communities. The International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design is the flagship conference of the organization and has been held successfully for 10 years in California.

The Society recently announced the formation of its “1st Asia Symposium on Quality Electronic Design” (ASQED’09) to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, July 15-16, 2009 (see http://www.isqed-asia.org).
