CHICAGO – 10/29/04 – DesignCon 2005, the premier event for electronic-design and semiconductor engineers, will offer significant additions for printed circuit board and integrated circuit products.
DesignCon 2005 attendees will see these technologies showcased at the PCB Pavilion and the Semiconductor Pavilion, two new areas added to the technology exhibition, with supporting educational content to be offered during the simultaneous conference.
DesignCon 2005 is scheduled for January 31 – February 3, 2005, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California. DesignCon is presented by the International Engineering Consortium (IEC).
The conference has always offered an extensive educational track with particular relevance for EDA engineers. In response to requests from engineers, who are seeing an ever-growing convergence between EDA tools, printed circuit boards, and integrated circuits, the IEC has created the pavilions to address this development.
"Since PCB and semiconductor technologies are essential elements in the designs our attendees produce, it is a natural extension that we would add these areas to augment the content of our conference," IEC Senior Director John Janowiak said. "The PCB and Semiconductor pavilions are additions that embrace the DesignCon mission-providing education that engineers can use immediately to meet their most pressing challenges."
The PCB Pavilion and Semiconductor Pavilion will be part of the technology exhibition. The pavilions will be supported by educational conference technical papers on both topics, thus creating a "fully-integrated'' experience for conference attendees, Janowiak said.
The PCB pavilion will features products such as PCB design tools, multilayer and ceramic PCBs, and electronic manufacturing services and prototyping. The Semiconductor Pavilion will offer product in areas such as logic circuits and memory, general-purpose processors, and IC amplifiers.
