Dear CASPA members and friends,  

    Being the global technology innovation center, the Silicon Valley is a unique place with a unique culture with many IT professionals, immigrants or local elites, creating the technologies changing the world of living. However, it is a question for these IT elites on how to raise their children effectively, with the DNA from them, to prepare for academic and financial success in future with their own creativity and inventions.

    For the 1st time in its history, CASPA had an Education Day on June 9, 2013, introducing Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS) Program, and its significance to the students for developing interests, skills and research ability in Science and Technology. Ivy League veterans and financial experts are invited in this event to discuss in detail on how to build a life plan, and develop leadership for academic growth and good financial habits at teenager age. Four recent high school graduates including semifinalists and finalists of Intel STC and Siemens Competition, along with a parent who had successful story in raising two kids, had shared their stories with audiences on their unique experiences and paths in accomplishing the greatness in their lives.

    Over 450 audiences came to attend the event including both parents and children. For those who have missed the event or want to review the event for future reference, please check CASPA website for the presentation material and program videos: ( For those who have been to the event, please leave your feedback  at ( for us to do a better job in future CASPA education events.

CASPA 2013 Summer Symposium

" Make v.s. Buy" - Silicon IP and Its Roles in Semiconductor Ecosystem

Date:                July 13, 2013 (Saturday )

Time:               12:00 - 5:00 pm
Location:          Cadence Auditorium   

                        Building 10, 2655 Seely Ave, San Jose, CA
Registration:    Here

As the semiconductor industry undergoes a landscape shift from PC to handheld and wearable computing, System-on-Chip (SOC) has become the main silicon platform. The trend of horizontal segmentation and system integration continues as silicon IP has become more significant in the growing segment of the semiconductor ecosystem. The final delivery of a successful product depends heavily on some key IP's. It is the most critical question to the silicon provider whether to buy an existing IP solution for SOC integration, or alternatively develop a native solution competing for the performance, power, costs and feature differentiation.

CASPA's 2013 summer symposium will feature leading technologists and world IP experts in the Silicon Valley on Silicon IP and SOC solution. They will share with audiences their views from technology to business aspects on the Silicon IP and its increasing role in the silicon realization today and tomorrow.
