The International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design Features Wide Range of Electronic Design Trends, Techniques, and Best Practices

SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- March 15, 2005 -- Industry Leaders and Academia Share Insight to Help Advance the Quality of SOC Designs and Methodologies

The sixth annual International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design (ISQED), today announced its 2005 program that will include keynote speeches by industry leaders from Applied Materials, Cadence, Mentor Graphics, PDF Solutions, and TSMC who will discuss critical issues surrounding quality in electronic design. In addition, ISQED announced two high-powered panel discussion sessions, where many leading experts address the important issue of quality design. These panels focus on the following topics:

-- IP Creation and Use - What is the road ahead or is it just clear and bumpy? (Moderated by Stephen Ohr, EETimes)

-- Breakthroughs and Barriers in Nanoelectronics - Can we build systems with nano devices? (Moderated by Michael Santarini, EDN Magazine)

ISQED will be held on March 21-23, 2005 at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose, CA. Interactive tutorials will be available for attendees who desire in-depth and focused insight into the various critical aspects of electronic design. Additionally, ISQED will present the "Best Paper Awards" to the authors who submitted their technical papers. The "Best Paper Awards," sponsored by Synopsys and Magma Design Systems, will be announced during the Tuesday luncheon.

"The ISQED conference has become an integral communications forum for a variety of semiconductor disciplines, including design, manufacturing and test," said Ashok Sinha, senior vice president and general manger, Applied Materials and ISQED keynote speaker. "While ISQED focuses on current challenges in achieving design quality and methodologies, it also seeks to provide insight into future trends and best practices that will successfully get us there."

Powerful Keynotes Headline 2005 Conference

The list of plenary keynote speakers offers a comprehensive perspective from design, process, and tool methodologies. Keynote speakers include:

-- Ashok Sinha, Sr. Vice President and General Manager, Applied Materials

-- David Courtright, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Cadence Design Systems

-- Janusz Rajski, Chief Scientist, Mentor Graphics

-- John Kibarian, President and CEO, PDF Solutions

-- Bernard Candaele, Department Head, SoC, IC & EDA, Thales

-- Kurt Wolf, Director, Library Management Division, TSMC

"ISQED addresses ideas, techniques, and methodologies to help solve real world quality design problems," said Janusz Rajski Chief Scientist, Design Verification and Test Division, at Mentor Graphics. "This focused venue continues to help lead to new design methodologies that will ultimately provide best-of-breed design tools and further improve the quality of SoC designs and techniques."

ISQED 2005 media and corporate sponsors and support include Cadence(R) Design Systems, Extension Media(R), Magma(R) Design Systems, Mentor Graphics(R), PDF Solutions(R), Silicon Valley Technical Institute(R), and Synopsys(R).


International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design, is a premier Design and Design Automation conference, aimed at bridging the gap between an integration of, electronic design tools and processes, integrated circuit technologies, processes & manufacturing, to achieve design quality. The conference provides a design forum to present and exchange ideas and to promote the research, development, and application of design techniques and methods, design processes, and EDA design methodologies and tools that address issues which impact the quality of the realization of designs into physical integrated circuits. The society and conference was founded and launched in 2000 by industry veteran Dr. Ali Iranmanesh, who serves as the founder and chairman of Silicon Valley Technical Institute.

ISQED 2005 is held in technical sponsorship of IEEE EDS, IEEE CPMT, and in cooperation with IEEE CASS, and ACM/SigDA. The conference is produced and sponsored by the International Society for Quality Electronic Design (www.svtii.com).

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
