System on Chip (SoC) has been the enabling technology behind the evolution of many of today’s ubiquitous technologies, such as Internet, mobile wireless technology, and high definition television. The information technology age, in turn, has fuelled a global communications revolution. SoC devices today include some or all of the major electronics technologies, comprising RF, analog, optical, digital, and Nano-Electro-Mechanical Systems (NEMS). Recent advances in systems, deep-submicron and nano process technology are unleashing new opportunities, but also creating new challenges. Managements of design and verification complexity, EDA tools, on-chip communication, and design reuse for SoCs are significant complications, and SoC fault detection is becoming more difficult as chip size is increasing.
The SOC Conference is a premier forum for sharing advances in SoC technologies and applications in the areas of digital systems, circuit architectures, design methods, tools, automation, manufacturing, test, and emerging technologies. The 25th SOCC will be held in the City of Niagara Falls, New York and will offer three days of technical papers, technical workshops, and a vendor exhibition.
