On October 5 through 7, LSI Corp will be hosting an IC conference and technology showcase in at the beautiful Crowne Plaza Hotel in suburban Milpitas, just north of San Jose (www.lsi.com/AI-conference). Allow me to especially point you to two interesting panels. The first is on 3D ICs, which is a topic that just keeps getting hotter. Sure it’s a high-volume technology, but it has fascinated vendors up and down the food chain for decades and it seems that the technology’s time has now come, driven by the Lilliputian dimensions and corresponding component requirements of today’s mobile devices. That panel takes place on Wednesday at 1:30 pm.
Immediately following at 2:45 pm is a panel on the critical memory needs of networking ICs. Not many applications bang on memory like high-speed networking and this panel will cover the issues, today’s answers, and future directions as only Brocade, Cisco, Infinera, LSI, TSMC, and Memoir Systems can define them. By the way, I’m moderating this panel because I’m the author of the Denali Memory Report blog so I can assure you that this is going to be one excellent panel.
Oh yes, and Aart de Geus, Chairman and CEO of Synopsys, is keynoting at this event on Wednesday at 9:30 am. Aart always gives terrific presentations, well worth seeing, and it’s been amazing to see how EDA360-like his keynotes have been lately.
LSI’s event is open to anyone interested in LSI Corp’s new ASIC and standard product solutions, except for LSI’s competitors of course. If interested, check out http://www.lsi.com/AI-conference for registration details but hurry because seating is limited. I hear they’re giving away some iPads too, but please don’t attend just for that. There’s also lunch.
