The alliance, formerly the EDA Consortium (EDAC), will provide attendees with details about its charter, programs, initiatives and events.
Of particular interest to them during DVCon will be the chance for find out the latest about the alliance becoming a SEMI Strategic Association Partner.
This change is designed to better align the electronic system and semiconductor design community with the electronic product manufacturing and supply chain community represented by SEMI.
The role of the ESD Alliance
The ESD Alliance represents members’ interests across a range of technical, marketing, economic and legislative issues as they affect the entire design ecosystem. It acts as the central voice to communicate and promote the value of the semiconductor design ecosystem as a vital component of the global electronics industry.
Under the SEMI umbrella, its charter includes responsibilities that cover industry advocacy – global trade policies, industry talent needs, and environment, health and safety (EHS) concerns, in particular – and workforce development. It also plays a major role in industry standards initiatives and market research reporting. Conferences, trade shows and other industry events are also among its priorities.
