Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association
Yoichi Morishita, Chairman
|The Electronic Design and Solution Fair (EDSFair)
represents the merger of the EDA TechnoFair, held by the Japan Electronics
and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA) as an exhibition
specializing in semiconductor design since 1993, and the FPGA/PLD
Design Conference & Exhibit, which was held by FPGA/PLD vendors and
related university representatives. The Fair was highly evaluated
by participants from around the world in its first staging at Pacifico
Yokohama in February 2001.
In the realm of semiconductors, the pillars of information technology
(IT), the ability to increase the performance of large-scale integrated
circuits (LSIs), advance systems-on-chip and realize more energy efficient
devices in short development periods is making electronic circuit
design and solutions more important than ever before.
On a global scale, development is proceeding on advanced device and
system LSI design technologies to incorporate millions of gates on
a single chip, achieve high-speed interfaces and deal with increasingly
high-level software installations.
As a comprehensive solutions exhibition, the EDSFair reflects this
trend by introducing advanced technologies in fields such as EDA (Electronic
Design Automation), ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits)
and FPGA/PLDs (Field Programmable Gate Array/Programmable Logic Devices),
as well as IP (intellectual property) usage technologies, embedded
software technologies and design services.
The second staging of the fair, on January 24 and 25, 2002, in Pacifico
Yokohama, will take such technologies to a new level of sophistication.
It is to be held under the slogan ÒWhat enables your designs to win
in the 21st century?Ó and its objective is to fulfill todayÕs needs
for unprecedented solutions combining leading-edge technologies in
Preparations are underway for the EDSFair 2002 to set up a network
of cooperation with the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDAC)
held by the U.S. Design Automation Conference (DAC). As a result,
the EDSFair is being set up as an international convention on the
scale of DAC and EuropeÕs Design, Automation and Test in Europe (DATE).
We anticipate exhibits by Western EDA vendors, FPGA/PLD vendors, silicon
suppliers, IP providers, library vendors, design houses and related
companies, as the Fair takes on he aspects of a place for the emergence
of global business opportunities.
In addition, an upgraded FPGA/PLD Design Conference and technology
forums will enrich the FairÕs contents. I am confident that this event
will provide all exhibitors and visitors with efficient and effective
opportunities for information exchange and new business development.
All of us involved with the Fair look forward to your visiting the
