The Electronic System Design (ESD) Alliance will highlight its recent decision to join SEMI and the new Infrastructure Alley initiative during the Design Automation Conference at Moscone West, San Francisco (Exhibition dates: June 25-27)
On its stand (Booth #1234), Bob Smith, the ESD Alliance’s executive director, will explain the implications of the decision to become a SEMI Strategic Association Partner, including how this will help expand the organization’s role as the central voice of the semiconductor design industry. The ESD Alliance’s latest newsletter will also be available, offering news on its charter, programs, initiatives and ongoing events, as will giveaways for its members and companies interested in joining.
DAC’s Design Infrastructure Alley is a new area within the DAC exhibit hall (Aisle 1200). The initiative, supported by the ESD Alliance and the Association for High-Performance Computing Professionals, aims to highlight the IT infrastructure for electronic systems and components design. Its Design-on-Cloud Pavilion will offer presentations on license management, grid computing, storage management, data security and cloud computing. While Design Infrastructure Alley is open to all attendees, it is intended for IT managers addressing electronic design’s unique computing and storage needs, and CAD managers overseeing the increasing use of cloud computing. Software architects will also learn why the IT infrastructure must be part of the design specification.
