ES Design West Opens July 9 with Exhibit Floor Showcasing Companies that Span Entire Electronic System Design Ecosystem

IBM’s Q Quantum Computer a Featured Highlight

MILPITAS, CALIF. –– July 1, 2019 –– The exhibit floor at ES Design West will be a showplace of companies that span the entire electronic system design ecosystem including IP, EDA, embedded software, design services, design infrastructure and the cloud presenting system-centric commercial solutions for complex chip design.

Plus, IBM will be in ES Design West booth #2327 with an exhibit of a life-size model of an IBM Q quantum computer, which showcases quantum computing architecture built upon decades of semiconductor industry advances. The exhibit will also include demonstrations of how the IBM Q Experience quantum cloud services platform and Qiskit, an open source quantum software framework, are used to program and experiment with real IBM Q systems. Markets that soon may claim staggering leaps from a quantum computational capacity span from automotive to medical, financial and energy.

Six “Meet the Experts” sessions in the SMART Design Pavilion located on the ES Design West exhibit floor and one session at the TechTalk Stage South acknowledge the range of commercial achievements of electronic system design.

ES Design West, a co-located event at SEMICON West, runs Tuesday through Thursday, July 9-11, at Moscone Center South Hall in San Francisco. Hours are Tuesday and Wednesday 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Thursday hours are 10 a.m. though 4 p.m. 

“It’s important for our EDA industry to make an effort to reach a broader audience,” says Dean Drako, president and CEO of IC Manage. “When I spoke at SEMICON Japan earlier this year, I was impressed by the audience that attended the show. It reinforced my expectation that exhibiting at ES Design West co-located at SEMICON West this year was a good decision for IC Manage.”

In addition to IC Manage, exhibitors are ANSYS, Arm, Blue Pearl, Breker Verification Systems, Cadence Design Systems, CAST, ChipEstimate, ClioSoft, Computer Products Corporation and Coventor, a LAM Research Company. Also, Dell/EMC, Empryrean Software, Mentor, a Siemens Business, Methodics, OneSpin Solutions, Real Intent, Rescale, Silvaco, SmartDV, Sourcery Ltd., and Synopsys.

The Electronic System Design (ESD) Alliance, a SEMI Strategic Association Partner and host of ES Design West, will be in booth #2352 with information about its charter, programs, initiatives and events, and copies of its latest newsletter.

“Delivering the broadest portfolio of silicon-proven IP and complete design solutions for advanced chip design, verification, manufacturing and test is what we do,” remarks Dave DeMaria, Synopsys’ corporate vice president, corporate marketing. “ES Design West provides an opportunity for Synopsys to showcase our advanced technologies and to connect with key leaders across the microelectronics supply chain from Silicon to Software.”

Cadence Fellow Stan Krolikoski agrees. “The inaugural ES Design West promises to be an informative event for members of the Electronics/EDA communities. The event’s program will feature a wide range of topics that are critical for the future of the industry, including the influence of machine learning and AI on EDA, silicon design in the cloud, security in advanced design, and design for low power. Sessions covering these and other critical topic will help spotlight the diverse technical challenges and solutions facing electronic design now and in the near future.”

Traction Inverter

Sponsored by Infineon

Not only are traction inverters integral parts of an electric drive train and vital to the vehicle motion, but they can also make a big difference when it comes to the energy efficiency and functional safety of electric vehicles. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Mathew Anil from Infineon about the variety of roles that traction inverters play battery electric vehicles, how silicon carbide technology in traction inverters can reduce the size of electric car batteries and how traction inverters can also help with cost reduction, functional safety and more.
