Chairmans Words


The semiconductor industry continues advancement with the Moore's Law in the Post-PC era. More functionalities and usage models have been integrated in the System-on-Chip (SOC) from end user interface to cloud computing. A traditional IC chip now becomes an entire system, while a traditional system gets integrated within one chip. The semiconductor landscape shifts from PC-centric computing to handheld and wearable forms, where a touch, a gesture, a tone, or even a movement from eye-ball can trigger a series of computing from local to cloud devices. During the mega-trend of system going to chip, Intellectual Properties (IP) in Silicon have risen to become increasing important in IC design and integration. What is the golden rule the SOC companies use to decide if they should buy or develop some critical IPs internally?

In CASPA's 2013 summer symposium, we invited leading technologists and world IP experts from Cadence, ARM, Intel, Marvell,Arason and Finnegan, who shared with audiences their views from technology to business aspects on the Silicon IP and its increasing role in the silicon realization today and tomorrow. Over 150 people attended the event, including professionals from South California, Texas and mainland of China.

The CASPA continues its momentum after the summer symposium with following upcoming events. Wish to see all of you in one of these events!
