IP Talks! 2009: IP Returns to Center Stage at DAC
Leading IP Suppliers Discuss Latest in Semiconductor IP at ChipEstimate.com Booth

SAN JOSE, Calif., 17 Jun 2009

For the third year running, the ChipEstimate.com chip-planning portal will present IP Talks!, a showcase for the latest IP technology, at the Design Automation Conference (DAC). IP Talks! provides an opportunity for DAC attendees to meet with leading IP suppliers and learn about how the latest in semiconductor IP can help them accelerate their design success. IP Talks! can be seen July 27-30 at booth 1100 in the South Hall.

This year's IP Talks! will include live presentations from ARM, Arteris, Cadence Design Systems, CebaTech, Chartered Semiconductor, Denali, PLDA, Sidense, Synopsys and True Circuits. A schedule of presenters — which is being updated often — will be available at www.chipestimate.com/dac2009/.

“We’ve found IP Talks! to be a particularly valuable element of our DAC experience, and we look forward to it again this year,” said Camille Kokozaki, director of Design Automation Services at IDT. “There’s nowhere else at the conference where you can get the depth and breadth of information about the latest IP on the market.”
