28th Electronic Design Process Symposium
November 4, 2021 @ 8:00 am - November 5, 2021 @ 5:00 pm PDT
In 2021, the Electronic Design Process Symposium (EDPS) is in its 28th year, and it continues to serve as a leading forum for thought leaders of the design community from industry participants as well as academia. We invite industry leaders to discuss state-of-the-art improvements to the electronic design processes and CAD methodologies, emphasizing trends and new paradigms, rather than on the functions of the individual tools themselves.
The 2021 symposium is now in the planning phase. As designs get more complex, the design, test and manufacturing cycles are getting longer and more intertwined with each other. Therefore, EDPS will continue to extensively cover test, manufacturing, validation, and security issues as they pertain to the design of chips/systems. We are planning sessions to provide a holistic view of design, test, validation, and manufacturing issues. We will also cover new developments in systems approach to design and manufacturing, AI for design and design for AI, and advanced technologies and tools that support these areas.
Please note that most of the talks and papers from the last 21 years of EDPS are now available, and searchable, on the Prior Years page.
