As a professional semiconductor event attendee I can pretty much tell if an event will be successful by looking at the agenda. What I look for is simple, customer presentations. Not company presentations or partner presentations but actual customer case studies presented by name brand companies. For this event Google, Intel, and Samsung stand out for me.
Intel because they have gone through some major disruptions in the last year. Example: Hiring Jim Keller as senior vice president in the Technology, Systems Architecture and Client Group (TSCG) and general manager of the Silicon Engineering Group (SEG). Jim is a very disruptive personality and that is exactly what Intel needed in the design ranks, my opinion.
Google because they are doing some extremely clever stuff! The whole Google approach to chip design is also very disruptive. If you ever get a chance to participate in a Google chip project do it if at all possible. If you ever get to hear a Google chip person speak do not miss it. Seriously, I speak from experience here on both parts, absolutely.
Samsung is a bleeding edge company in regards to logic and memory chips. They design a very wide spectrum of silicon and systems and literally go where no chip designers have gone before. Always worth listening to Samsung.
Synopsys’ Fusion Compiler was announced a year ago and from what I have heard it is doing quite well delivering on promises Synopsys made from the beginning. I know of a very large SoC that was taped out recently using Fusion Compiler and there were no complaints which is very rare in this business. In fact, I was told that Synopsys support was excellent for this project.
