LOUISVILLE, CO--(Marketwired - May 21, 2013) -

WHO: The 50th Design Automation Conference (DAC), the premier event for the design of electronic circuits and systems, and for electronic design automation (EDA) and silicon solutions

WHAT: Will present the Pavilion Panel, "Learn the Secrets of Design for Yield," moderated by Peter Singer, editor in chief of Solid State Technology, with panelists: Shaofeng Yu at Semiconductor Manufacturing International (SMIC); Dr. Min-Chie Jeng from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC); and Dr. Luigi Capodieci from GLOBALFOUNDRIES.

WHEN: Wednesday, June 5, from 1:30 p.m. until 2:15 p.m

WHERE: Booth # 509 on the DAC Exhibit Floor, Austin Convention Center, Austin, Texas

The panel, organized by Thomas Wong of GLOBALFOUNDRIES and Dr. Zhihong Liu of ProPlus Design Solutions, will look at advanced process node challenges that highlight increased random process variations and layout-dependent effects designers must address in SoC design. The panel of foundry experts will share techniques to manage these sub-nanometer effects to improve manufacturability and yield.

About DAC
The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier event for the design of electronic circuits and systems, and for electronic design automation (EDA) and silicon solutions. A diverse worldwide community representing more than 1,000 organizations attends each year, represented by system designers and architects, logic and circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior managers and executives to researchers and academicians from leading universities. Close to 60 technical sessions selected by a committee of electronic design experts offer information on recent developments and trends, management practices and new products, methodologies and technologies. A highlight of DAC is its exhibition and suite area with approximately 200 of the leading and emerging EDA, silicon, intellectual property (IP) and design services providers. The conference is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDA Consortium), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and is supported by ACM's Special Interest Group on Design.

Design Automation Conference acknowledges trademarks or registered trademarks of other organizations for their respective products and services.
