Panel at Semico Summit 2011 to Address Challenges

Phoenix, Arizona April 14, 2011 - The semiconductor industry thrives on the types of challenges that inspire innovation, the driving force behind Moore's Law. But the industry, perhaps, has never had to deal with issues like the ones we're facing today.

The leading edge is at 28nm and below. Both technical and business challenges face designers and manufacturers of leading-edge ICs. Semico Research has brought together representatives from the design customer, foundry, EDA tools and high-end IP perspectives into one panel to explore these challenges. The panel is titled "Challenges at 28nm and Below for First-Time Silicon Success," and will be moderated by Mahesh Tirupattur, Executive Vice President of Analog Bits. Panel members include:

Moderator: Mahesh Tirupattur
Executive Vice President
Analog Bits

Chi-Ping Hsu, Ph.D.
Senior Vice President, Research and Development, Silicon Realization Group

Mark Papermaster
Vice President, Switching Silicon Technology Group

Grant Pierce
President & CEO

Speaker TBA

The panel will explore the challenge of designing and manufacturing leading edge ICs. The semiconductor market is a fast-moving competitive environment that is increasingly communication and consumer driven with a strong drive to provide increasing performance and bandwidth in a reduced power environment. The panel will discuss the critical issues in coordinating EDA challenges with customer design requirements, challenges in efficiently connecting multi IP blocks and resulting in a manufacturable high yielding IC on time and on budget to hit the market window.

The Semico Summit 2011 will be held May 1-3, 2011 at the stunning InterContinental Montelucia Resort & Spa in Paradise Valley, Arizona. The Semico Summit is an annual executive conference focused on strategic issues of major concern within our industry. Widely revered as the semiconductor event of the year, the Summit has been in existence since 1997. There are ample opportunities for interaction with top-level leaders in a casual setting. Traditionally, the event kicks off Sunday with a golf tournament & welcome reception. A well-attended president's dinner follows Monday's sessions where the industry's best and brightest gather through Tuesday afternoon. Hot button issues are pressed with featured presentations delivered by internationally recognized leaders and followed by lively Q&A sessions.
