DesignCon 2013 Scheduled for Santa Clara
Santa Clara, CA — Recognized throughout the semiconductor and electronic design industries as the premiere annual trade event, DesignCon 2013 is scheduled for January 28-31 in Santa Clara, Calif. Hosted by UBM Electronics, the 14-track technical DesignCon conference program will include more than 100 in-depth tutorials, technical paper sessions and panel discussions. In addition, the two-day DesignCon expo program will debut with visionary keynote presentations, a progressive educational forum staged by DesignCon 2013 host sponsor, Agilent Technologies, and an expanded focus on training sessions, teardowns and technology solutions.

"With its unwavering focus on intensive technical education and networking, DesignCon is the definitive annual event for the chip, board and systems design community," said Patrick Mannion, Content Director at UBM Electronics. "DesignCon is the largest annual meeting of board designers, and is the best face-to-face opportunity to scale know-how about chip, system and package design challenges." DesignCon's opening day keynote address will be delivered by Bill Swift, Vice President of Engineering at Cisco Systems, who leads silicon development engineering for the service provider, enterprise and high-end switching-based products. Jonah Alben, Senior Vice President of Engineering at NVIDIA, will keynote on the second day, Tuesday, Jan. 29. Mr. Alben currently leads the development of next-generation GPU architectures. On Wednesday's keynote address will be given by Mike Santori, Business and Technology Fellow at National Instruments.

DesignCon 2013 will present more than 100 tutorials and technical paper sessions focused on the pervasive nature of signal integrity at all levels of electronic design. Consequently, all presentations will be categorized under one of 14 conference tracks.

In addition, the expo will have more than 130 exhibitors — more than any other design engineering event this season — as well as visionary keynote speakers from Cisco, NVIDIA, National Instruments and other influential companies; panel discussions; an educational forum sponsored by Agilent Technologies; and the ever-popular Chiphead Theater, which will host several live product teardowns and speed training demonstrations.
