Semiconductor Recovery & Vision For Future- Symposium Report Attached03/06/2010 - 03/06/2010


Time:     March 6, 2010 (Saturday); 1:00pm-5:00pm

Venue:    Intel SC12 Auditorium, 3600 Juliette Ln., Santa Clara, CA 95054


With global economy still being deeply in recession, the high tech industry in Silicon Valley has already been positioned for a strong recovery.  At the heart of today’s information technology, semiconductor technology is undergoing a new round of innovations driven by future demands from hardware to software applications. The Moore’s Law continues to advance, but with increasing challenges, where process and design are required to be co-optimized to achieve the best scaling benefit. Recent technology breakthrough in nano-scale lithography has unveiled future direction for semiconductor fabrication. Targeting to achieve higher performance with more efficient computing, the computing paradigm is experiencing a big reform from traditional frequency driven pipelining techniques to either multi-core homogenous computing with massive parallelism, or highly integrated system-on-chip solutions with heterogeneous computing. Multi-core architectures are both platforms and targets for future IC design, as well as the kernels for future throughput computing for data center applications.
