Boulder, Colo.--Nov. 24, 1997--The Design Automation Conference (DAC)announced the Silicon Village Pavilion, a new venue within DAC forsemiconductor vendors. Along with Silicon Village, the DAC has expandedits technical program to include panels and papers on semiconductor issues.Silicon Village will make its debut as the DAC celebrates its 35thanniversary at San Francisco's Moscone Center, June 15-19, 1998.
"The increasingly complex designs for today's electronic products demand acloser working relationship between EDA software companies and siliconvendors," said Tom Pennino, Silicon Village coordinator and DAC executivecommittee member. "DAC is the premier forum for exchanging information ontools, methodologies and processes, and it makes sense for the EDA andsemiconductor industries to showcase their products together. This givesdesigners an expanded view of design solutions and an opportunity forone-stop shopping."
Silicon Village will be located in the center of DAC's record 275,000square-foot exhibit area. To date, participating semiconductor vendorsinclude Actel Corp., American Microsystems Inc. (AMI), Chip Express,Cypress Semiconductor, IBM Microelectronics, Lattice Semiconductor,Lightspeed Semiconductor, Lucent Technologies, Motorola, Quicklogic,Samsung, SIDSA, Texas Instruments, and Tower Semiconductor. With 10,000square feet of space for 35 exhibitors, Silicon Village is expected to besold out soon.
To qualify for participation in DAC's Silicon Village, a company mustproduce one or more types of semiconductor. Each 12-foot by 13-foot exhibit spaceis priced at $2,600.
