Semico Research Announces Impact 2015 Keynote: Pushing the Envelope on Bandwidth

The thirst for higher bandwidth--driven by mobile, Big Data, and higher performance computing applications--presents new challenges for the designers of very high speed PCBs and IC packages.  Faster PCIe, SATA, and SAT interfaces and new 100G/400G systems featuring multi-lane 25-32Gbps SerDes (moving to 56Gbps), and  higher density, lower power, smaller footprint HPC/HBM/3D NAND memory interfaces are sparking a move to signaling technologies (PAM4/8), improved board/package materials, and a better signal/power integrity design discipline.  Today's designers require interdisciplinary electrical, mechanical, thermal, and material engineering skill sets to adequately deal with the increased design complexity and compressed time to profitability.  

In a speech titled "Pushing the Envelope on Bandwidth," Mentor Graphics' Daniel de Araujo will focus on some of the technical, personnel and engineering challenges faced by every very high speed system design team.  The presentation will take place at the Semico 2015 Impact conference, Boards, Chips and Packaging:  Designing to Maximize Results.  

Daniel N. de Araujo, Principal Engineer - Nimbic, Mentor Graphics

Daniel has 18 years of experience in board and chip design, simulation, and validation in high-end servers and high-volume commercial desktops.  He is a Principal Engineer at Mentor Graphics, and has 14 patents issued, 11 filed, nine patent disclosure publications and 67 peer-reviewed publications in international IEEE conference proceedings, transactions, journals, and books.  
Register today to reserve your seat at Boards, Chips and Packaging:  Designing to Maximize Results.  This Semico IMPACT Conference will provide a lineup of thought-provoking keynotes and enlightening panels.  If you are a board designer, system architect, an SoC designer or an ASIC design manager, plan to attend this event on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 at the Computer History Museum (1401 N Shoreline Blvd., Mountain View, California 94043).
