IC Design Central Partner Pavilion – Putting More Design into DAC
The IC Design Central Partner Pavilion was developed at DAC to illustrate the many critical design functions necessary to produce working silicon on time and on budget. Besides EDA vendors, companies from all areas of the design and product development process-- Foundry, IP, Design Services, Assembly/Package, Test, and system interconnect must cooperate to offer integrated front-to-back solutions that ensure first-time-successful silicon and predictable time-to-market. DAC has created the IC Design Central Partner Pavilion to help DAC attendees find the exact design flows and solutions they need to create today's challenging designs. The IC Design Central Partner Pavilion includes a specific exhibiting area and a central stage for use by ICDC exhibitors.
