Linley Mobile & Wearables Conference 2016
Focusing on IC and system design for mobile and wearable devices

Innovation in mobile chip and system design is accelerating. Heterogeneous processors and advances in LTE are driving changes in smartphone design. Wearable devices create new, even smaller form factors and add new functions for communications, entertainment, fitness, and health. To deliver these new capabilities, mobile processors must integrate a plethora of IP cores, including big and little CPUs, DSPs, GPUs, video, security, and NoCs to connect them all. Mobile systems also require complex RF design, advanced power management, and a plethora of sensors.

The Linley Mobile & Wearables Conference will be held on July 26 – 27, 2016 at theHyatt Regency Hotel, Santa Clara, CA.This two-day, single-track conference features technical presentations addressing design issues for smartphones, tablets, smartwatches and other wearable devices. The Linley Group will also present an overview of the market, technologies, equipment-design, and silicon trends for designers of mobile devices.

This event is the only one of its kind focused on next-generation mobile platform design.
This conference is intended for *designers of mobile chips, mobile devices, and mobile software as well as service providers, press, and the financial community. Attendance is free to qualified registrants.
