Jim Brennan, News Anchor, GlobalSpec
Non-contact optical testing is an established technology that is further developing as a viable method for semiconductor materials. The ability to measure thickness and distance throughout the production process creates a variety of integration options. This presentation will address numerous optical measurement techniques and discuss how to effectively implement these technologies. Learn More
Heidi Olson, Research Engineer, Precitec, Inc.
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM PST)
This presentation will examine conditions that have made analog design a bottleneck to shorter cycle times. It will then demonstrate a High Performance Device Generator (HiPer DevGen) tool designed to "break the analog design bottleneck." Learn More
FPGA development and turnaround cycles are considerably shorter than those of custom ASICs. The added advantages of re-programmability and power optimization make the FPGA a compelling solution for hand-held electronic devices. By using an FPGA to expand the capabilities of an embedded system, designers can achieve reusability, customization, and reduced power consumption at the same time. Learn More
