Following on from last years Silicon to Systems event, NMI have this year partnered with IMEC and DSP Valley to bring you the latest in how to develop low cost Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) for almost any application.
Many people are put off designing ASICs because they think it’s too hard, too expensive or they don’t have the skills. This conference aims to show you that an ASIC could be easier and less costly than you think. It will show there are a range of strategies that can be used to successfully implement an ASIC solution even in low to moderate volumes.
Come along and hear from the experts on how to do it, how it may be easier and less costly than you think , see some case studies that show designing your own ASIC, can be done at a very low cost and without the need for acquiring significant overhead. Hear about some of the other advantages, such as IP protection, that comes with low cost ASICS. There is strong interest in this event and already confirmed speakers include IMEC, TSMC, ASE, Sondrel and Presto Engineering with more to be announced shortly.
Who Should Attend?
Mangers and senior managers who are interested in developing an ASIC for a new application or maybe looking at a cost reduction path from existing PCB or FPGA solutions.
