Many of these first-time exhibitors are IP providers and suppliers that blend with the new IP Track on Monday, bringing together a strong IP initiative for the first time at DAC.
A feature at the exhibition is the ARM® Connected Community® Pavilion, where attendees can visit ARM technology-based demos from ARM partners. Currently 17 partners are exhibiting in the ARM Connected Community Pavilion.
New to the conference is the Automotive Village sponsored by Wrightspeed. Wrightspeed will be showcasing their plug and play repower kit�for medium duty commercial trucks. The Automotive Village is the center for tool providers, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and leading automobile manufacturers to meet, talk, listen and learn from each other. Exhibitors include: ANSYS, Dassault Systems, MathWorks, Mentor Graphics, SimuQuest and Synopsys (News - Alert). "Conversation and Cocktails" will provide a networking event in the Automotive Village on Monday, June 2, from 5:00 - 6:00pm.
The DAC Pavilion is one of the traditional highlights on the exhibition floor, offering all attendees the opportunity to learn about key areas of design through an eclectic mix of panels, presentations and interviews. The Pavilion will host a lineup of 16 exciting, educational and entertaining panels including a fireside chat with Wally Rhines, CEO, Mentor Graphics and James Buczkowski, Henry Ford Technical Fellow, Ford Motor Company and a device "tear-down" that was pre-selected by DAC attendees. A full DAC panel schedule and links to panel abstracts and speaker information is available at www.dac.com
A main component of DAC for all attendees is the opportunity over four days to network with colleagues, researchers and friends. DAC offers several networking events throughout the week for attendees and exhibitors to enjoy. Events open to attendees include:
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 190 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
