Dear CASPA members and friends,  

    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 were 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 young age. Four recent high school graduates including semifinalists and finalists of Intel STC and Siemens Competition, along with a parent who had successful stories 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. The presentation material and program videos are available in CASPA website: ( 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 News & Upcoming Events


CASPA 2013 Summer Symposium

The Rise of Silicon IP in A Post PC Era

Date:                July 13, 2013 (Saturday)

Time:               12:00 - 5:00 pm
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.
