Why Attend

Event Overview:

The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier conference for design and automation of electronic systems.  DAC offers outstanding training, education, exhibits and superb networking opportunities for designers, researchers, tool developers and vendors.
Members are from a diverse worldwide community of more than 1,000 organizations that attend each year, represented by system designers and architects, logic and circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior managers and executives, and researchers and academicians from leading universities.

Close to 300 technical presentations and sessions are 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 200 of the leading and emerging companies in:

    Electronic Design Automation (EDA)
    Intellectual Property (IP)
    Embedded Systems and Software
    Internet of Things (IoT)
    Design Services

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 Automation (SIGDA).

Exhibitor Information:

DAC is the nexus for the technology, research, and commercial development of products that enable the design of today’s leading electronic circuits and systems.  Nowhere else will you find the rich combination of tools, IP, products, engineers, developers, executives and researchers who are at the heart of the design and fabrication of the world’s most complex semiconductors and SoCs.  The DAC exhibition is also unique among major trade shows by offering its Demo Suite package with every booth (minimum booth size 200 square feet). Meet with you customers in a private secure environment right in your booth at no additional cost.
Technology moves fast – to compete you must be in touch with your customers, competitors, and have a vision into what’s coming.  Over 5500 participants come from all over the world come to DAC to get that vision through outstanding education, vendor exhibits and superb networking opportunities.  As an exhibitor at DAC you will gain access to decision-makers at all levels of the buying process from the leading semiconductor, computer, telecommunication and consumer electronics companies.
Highly targeted conference attendees, influential customers, press coverage and special events makes DAC the ideal environment to engage your customers at all levels of electronic design, design automation, embedded systems/software, intellectual property and automotive systems and software.
Contact us for detailed information on how you put your products and technology in front of potential customers from across the globe.
Whatever your marketing strategy may dictate, we have a program that will fit your needs.

Living Products: Building Connected Devices that Learn and Evolve

It took powerful hardware platforms to enable the ecosystem that turned mobile phones from communication devices to personal assistants, shopping portals, gaming consoles, and so much more. Connected products need a similar transformation from individual actors performing essentially the same function just better to an interconnected backdrop of data driving dynamic device collaboration proactively building consumer experiences, i.e. ambient intelligence. Are recent advancements in embedded AI, security, remote management and end-to-end tools enough to drive ambient intelligence or do we need more?

Automating Intelligence: Machine Learning and the Future of Manufacturing

There are a lot of buzzwords floating around the manufacturing world these days: IoT, AI, machine learning, deep learning, Industry 4.0 … all these words sound impressive, but what’s actually going on? Anna-Katrina Shedletsky dives into real-world examples of how automation and greater access to manufacturing data is enabling the rise of manufacturing intelligence. She covers a brief background on factory automation, discusses what buzzwords actually mean for the industry, and presents case studies on how machine learning algorithms are already aiding anomaly detection on assembly lines. To wrap up, Anna looks to the future of automation, explaining from personal experience how it has the potential to help companies from a broad range of sectors to dramatically reduce build delays and costly product recalls.

The Future of Computing: Pushing the Limits of Physics, Architectures & Systems for AI

The extraordinary progress in AI over the last few years has been enabled, in part, by modern advancements in computing.  Algorithmic ideas that had been around for decades have finally been brought to life thanks to Moore’s law and innovations in microprocessor and computing architectures. As Moore’s Law slows and data volumes explode we can expect to see new types of innovations emerge that will allow the rate of progress to continue. My presentation will cover state-of-the art computing for AI, as it exists today, as well as a roadmap of innovations that will lead us into the decade(s) to come. This includes the importance of approximate computing (both algorithms and hardware), analog devices for AI, and quantum computing for AI.  I will also highlight how these innovations bring forth both challenges and unique opportunities for the design automation community.
