||On the Announcement of the Electronic Design and Solution Fair 2005 |
Broadband communications are propelling our society toward an age in which anyone anywhere will be able to easily relay and receive information of all kinds. In the home, electronic equipment will be linked together into far-reaching digital networks. Semiconductors are at the heart of this "digital revolution."
Semiconductors must rapidly improve in performance and energy efficiency, breaking through the boundaries of what is possible today to reach new heights. Japan's Semiconductor MIRAI Project-a national R&D project for next-generation technologies-and a variety of other research and development efforts are being promoted to establish process and design technologies for SoC (Systems-on-Chip). In line with these efforts, needs are growing for higher-level electronic circuit design technologies, and solutions technologies such as software.
In its 5th year, Electronic Design and Solution Fair 2005 (EDSFair 2005) is Asia's Leading Exhibition of Essential Design Solution for SoC Technologies. Here, you will find new design and solutions technologies combining cutting-edge electronic design automation (EDA), device and IP (intellectual property) design service technologies.
Since 2001, when a cooperative partnership was launched with the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDAC) of the United States, EDSFair has risen to prominence as an international convention on a par with the Design Automation Conference (DAC) in America and Design, Automation and Test in Europe (DATE). EDSFair has also won strong global acclaim as the largest exhibition of its kind in Asia.
EDSFair 2005 will be held on January 27 and 28, 2005, in Pacifico Yokohama. Simultaneous events, such as the FPGA/PLD Design Conference, University Plaza and ASP-DAC (Asia and South Pacific Design Automation Conference), will enrich and enhance the EDSFair's effectiveness as a place for technological interchange between industry, academia and government organizations. I am confident that this event will provide exhibitors and visitors alike with unique opportunities for information exchange and new business development. All of us involved with the Fair look forward to your active participation.
