ASE hosts as the MEMS working group addresses integration of MEMS and CMOS designs
into a single product. Presentations from Coventor, ASE, and others highlight the agenda.
If you are involved in semiconductor design, product engineering, or other aspects of the development
flow, come share your insights and learn how to integrate MEMS capability to your designs.
The Second Annual InvenSense MotionTracking Developers Conference will again bring together System OEM's,
Ecosystem Partners, Application Developers, and Industry Analysts to learn about the technologies,
market and future applications for MotionTracking in smartphones, tablets, and health and sports
Building on the great information exchange from our April meeting, Rambus hosts as we explore
cost down methodologies for 3D designs. Join us to share your insight, provide feedback,
or network with industry experts.
Following a strong second quarter meeting, Synopsys hosts in July, as we review IP-XACT
and Linaro activities. Join us as we continue driving IP ecosystem improvements.
Meetings provide a discussion forum among experts in the field to enhance information exchange related
to Compact/Spice Modeling and Verilog-A standardization. Presentations topics cover all important aspects
of compact model development, implementation, deployment and standardization.
Cadence hosted as we continued our thrust into interoperable PDK development by looking at
OpenAccess Implementation and Interoperability. The working group has made
significant strides toward addressing the rationale for using standardized PDK. We're
nearing completion of a PDK Quality Checklist, as well as a
Process Control Monitor Checklist.
Exar hosted our discussion of ways to improve supply chain efficiency
and support, looking at single points of failure, the impact and risks
associated with industry consolidation, and the impact emerging technologies
will have on the semiconductor supply chain.
If you like to be in the know about the inner workings of the IP industry, check out “Take Five with Warren” on IPextreme’s IP WATCH YouTube channel. In concise interviews, Warren Savage sits down with industry insiders to delve into a wide range of topics, including:
- Personal history and background in the semiconductor field
- Industry trends and evolution
- Business models and inter-company collaboration
- Cutting-edge technology and innovations
- Big ideas and predictions for the future

Our monthly blogs address IP related topics from the perspective of industry leaders. In May, Atrenta's Mike Gianfagna addressed IP Quality - is it Time for an IP Consumers Report.
The 3 Q13 survey opens in July; participants receive free access to results, an $800
value. The report online query capability is a very useful benchmark data set for pricing
trends and estimated costs. Input from all fabless semiconductor and IDM
that are purchasing wafers directly from an established foundry relationship, or are outsourcing
assembly services, is tabulated and analyzed. If you are and are interested in participating,
contact Harrison Beasley.
