Semiconductors have made real what our ancestors would consider magic. The convergence of technology with modern life has reached a state where dependence of human life on semiconductor technology is ubiquitous. Intelligent systems are revolutionizing a variety of industries to help improve energy efficiency, quality, and flexibility of systems. To achieve these superior experience massive amount of researches are ongoing in the field of algorithms, embedded HW/SW design, IP core design and SoCs. These are well backed up by govt policies, standards and industry forums.
Incredible demand on functionality in a chip in a given power/thermal envelope forcing transistor geometries go smaller which is imposing newer challenges in VLSI design and associated EDA tools/flows/methodologies. In 33rd International Conference of VLSI Design and 19th International Conference on Embedded Design, we plan to bring together all the leaders from industries, academia, industry bodies, government, standard organizations to go over all technology enablers in an “outside-in approach to design VLSI” which includes intelligent systems design, new techniques in algorithms, HW/SW/Protocol standards, core VLSI design, EDA tools/flows/methodologies and core silicon technologies
