The SoC Summit, the conference series detailing next generation SoC design methodologies, will be held in Taipei, Taiwan on July 27. Leading off the program is Alex Shubat, president and CEO of Virage Logic. Shubat is joined by Robin Saxby, founder and CEO of ARM, Shauh-Teh Juang, senior director, design infrastructure marketing at TSMC and Charles Hsu, chairman of eMemory Technology.
The conference will inform SoC designers of the new requirements confronting them in the nanometer process technology era: the need for early access to next generation process technology to meet a tight time-to-market window and the need for tools and libraries that ensure right-the-first-time process design kits (PDKs). An expected audience of 400 attendees will hear the morning program, and attend one of three breakout tracks in the afternoon: Multifunction Smart Devices, Evolving SoCs On-Chip Communications, and Achieving 28nm Success.
When Virage Logic acquired ARC International in November 2009, it took over a conference series ARC began in 2006 called ConfigCon.
The SoC Summit will provide a technical program focusing on higher level goals for the SoC industry. Past events have been sponsored by major suppliers in the SoC production ecosystems including Cadence Design Systems, Intel, SMIC and Toshiba.
