“The conference has grown rapidly since its inception four years ago. It now attracts several hundred electronics engineers and managers from all over Europe and beyond, including representatives from all the industry leading semiconductor and systems companies on the continent. Its focus is the practical application of the latest design and verification techniques employed on electronic semiconductors and systems.
The conference program offers a broad and extensive range of tutorials, papers, panels, and keynote speeches. The event also includes an exhibition, receptions and other opportunities for industry networking and interaction. Primary areas of interest covered include:
· System Level Design & Verification
· Advanced Verification & Validation
· Design for Functional Safety
· IP Reuse and Design Automation
· Analog and Mixed-Signal Design & Verification
· Lower Power Techniques
Dr. Horst Symanzik has received his Diploma degree in Electrical Engineering (EE) from RWTH Aachen and holds a PhD degree in EE from TU Chemnitz where he was a research associate for MEMS electronic circuit design. He worked in semiconductor industry in several positions as a mixed-signal design engineer, ASIC project manager and wireless IC development manager. In 2007 he joined Bosch Sensortec, the new established MEMS Consumer Sensor branch of Bosch, to build up a non-automotive IC development organization. As the Director of Engineering Integrated Circuits, he has grown his organization in five international locations of the Bosch Consumer ASIC supplier, with more than 5 billion devices in the field.
Berthold Hellenthal runs the Progressive Semiconductor Program (PSCP) at the Audi Competence center for Electronics and Semiconductors, and is responsible for the company’s semiconductor strategy. Having joined Audi in 2008 as a member of its senior management team, Mr. Hellenthal specializes in electronic hardware reviews and application analysis as well as semiconductor programs. Mr. Hellenthal holds a Dipl.-Ing from RWTH Aachen University in Germany.
Sponsored by Accellera Systems Initiative, DVCon Europe brings chip architects, design and verification engineers, and IP integrators the latest methodologies, techniques, applications and demonstrations for the practical use of EDA solutions for electronic design. One of three DVCon events around the globe, DVCon Europe 2017 will include 2 keynote speeches, panel sessions, a broad range of papers and posters, 16 tutorials and an exhibition with demonstrations from leading tool, IP and service providers.
Accellera Systems Initiative (Accellera) is an independent, not-for profit organization, dedicated to create, support, promote and advance system-level design, modeling and verification standards for use by the worldwide electronics industry. The organization accelerates standards development and as part of its ongoing partnership with the IEEE, its standards are contributed to the IEEE Standards Association for formal standardization and ongoing change control.
