The Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA) will be hosting the Electronic Design and Solution Fair 2009 at the Pacifico Yokohama on January 22 (Thursday) and 23 (Friday), 2009.

The goal of EDSFair is to introduce and disseminate information about the latest design solutions, design technologies and EDA technologies required to produce the electronic systems and semiconductors for the IT applications that will form the foundation of the future information society, whose citizens will enjoy a ubiquitous computing environment. The fair thus contributes to the development of electronics and other IT-related industries. This will be the 16th time the fair has taken place, including its previous incarnation as the EDA TechnoFair.

The role played by semiconductor industry as the industry comprised the foundation of the "ubiquitous network" has become ever-greater.

Above all, the semiconductor design technology is expected the further development as the key technology to offer LSI technical advantages, density growth and integration.

And, to find solution for difficulties caused by miniaturization of the most advanced System LSI development and design, the alignment with semiconductor industry, university and government take on an increasingly important role as well as related overseas industry and organization from the international perspective

“Design the Future! Cutting edge Technologies Excite the Sense” is the theme of this Electronic Design and Solution Fair 2009. You will find on display world-class, cutting-edge technologies tailored for an age that demands new solutions. There are a variety of seminars and a conference offering a wide range of up-to-date information. There are open sessions catering to young engineers, new zones that bring together both Japanese and foreign venture businesses, as well as initiatives for promoting substantive technical exchanges between industry, academia and government.

It is the fervent desire of all of us in JEITA that EDSFair will contribute to enhancing the design technologies available to Japan's electronic and IT industries, and also that both exhibitors and visitors will be able to make the best use of the opportunities afforded by this event for conducting effective and fruitful exchanges of information, and for generating new business.

We greatly look forward to your visit at the upcoming EDSFair2009.
