The small form factor of smart phones and tablet computing today has set up new standards and requirements on IC design. Computing becomes more effective, efficient and competitive in energy, performance and cost. The smaller, smarter and greener devices are now much easier than ever to be adopted and embedded in a wider range of new applications with the available of all new platforms of mobile Operation Systems including Android, Symbian, Meego and Window Mobile. Embedded computing is reshaping the landscape of information technology in tomorrow land.

In this conference, we are honored to have some world top experts and technology veterans from key technology companies at Silicon Valley to share their views and experiences with us. They will show audiences how different technologies have evolved, and fueled the innovations in smart devices, tablet and other forms of consumer electronics.
