48th Design Automation Conference Announces Keynote Speakers

Cognitive Computing, Multi-core Trends, the Transformation of EDA and Steve Wozniak

LOUISVILLE, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 25, 2011 — Industry luminaries from Apple/ Fusion-IO, Freescale Semiconductor, Intel, and IBM will give keynotes at the 48th Design Automation Conference ( DAC). DAC 2011, the premier conference devoted to design and design automation of electronic systems, will be held at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California, from June 5-10, 2011.

“In assembling the 48th DAC series of distinguished keynotes, DAC is emphasizing the changes that Embedded Systems and Software are driving in electronic product design and its impact on the EDA industry in the keynotes by Lisa Su and Gadi Singer,” said Leon Stok, General Chair of the 48th DAC. “Steve Wozniak will lead this off by showing us the sheer joy of engineering innovation in putting challenging systems together. The series will be rounded off by Dharmendra Modha offering us a glimpse in the future of computing.”

Keynote Schedule:

Monday, June 6, 2011 from 2:00--3:00pm

  • Up Close and Personal with Steve Wozniak
  • Steve Wozniak, founder of Apple Computer and currently Chief Scientist for Fusion-IO
  • Steve Wozniak will be interviewed live on stage by San Jose Mercury News columnist Mike Cassidy on a wide range of topics, including the ‘joy’ of engineering and following your passion to convert innovative ideas into reality. Steve will provide a unique insight into the vision that started the largest and most successful technology company in the world.

Tuesday, June 7, 2011 from 8:30—10:00am

  • Megatrends Driving Embedded Multicore Innovation
  • Lisa Su, Senior Vice President and General Manager Of Networking And Multimedia for Freescale Semiconductor
  • Dr. Su will outline the evolution of embedded multicore processing solutions that are increasingly enabling the exponential growth in the mobile device and infrastructure markets. Topics covered will include the evolution of the network infrastructure, growth of multi-purpose embedded devices, increased trend towards heterogeneous system-on-chip (SOC) integration, balanced with the market realities of maintaining system development costs and energy efficiency. Continued innovation in every part of the value chain is needed in hardware design, software design, and in EDA tools. Key solutions and challenges for embedded multicore designs will be discussed as we move to advanced geometries and more highly integrated SOCs.

Wednesday, June 8, 2011 from 11:00am-12:00pm

  • The Imminent EDA Transformation
  • Gadi Singer, Vice President of the Intel Architecture Group and General Manager, SOC Enabling Group for Intel Corporation.
  • The EDA industry faces a substantial shift. Electronic systems are going through fundamental and rapid change in domains ranging from TVs and in-vehicle devices to phones, tablets, and even PCs. These new systems require unprecedented connectivity, hardware and software complexity, and application and user interactions. To meet these challenges, the EDA industry must evolve and expand quickly to enable highly interdependent silicon, software, system, and experience solutions. The EDA industry's current offering need to be reassessed, and the scope of the industry’s capabilities and environments needs to encompass exploration, design, verification, and debug across the complete hardware and software stack. The keynote will highlight opportunities for innovation and the changes necessary to support this brisk evolution and value creation in electronic systems.

Thursday, June 9, 2011 from 11:00am—12:00pm

  • Cognitive Computing: Neuroscience, Supercomputing, Nanotechnology
  • Dharmendra S. Modha, Founding Manager of the Cognitive Computing group at IBM's Almaden Research Center; Principal Investigator for DARPA SyNAPSE team of IBM Research - Almaden, IBM Research - Watson, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Cornell University, Columbia University, and University of California at Merced. The ultimate goal of the DARPA SyNAPSE project is to build brain-like cognitive computing chips that scale to human cortex by moving beyond the von Neumann architecture and become the brains behind IBM's Smarter Planet vision. The project leverages nanotechnology, supercomputing, and neuroscience and is a collaboration of four universities (Cornell, Columbia, Wisconsin-Madison, and UC Merced) and five IBM sites (Almaden, Yorktown, EFK, BTV, and IRL).
