Nimbic Board of Director Jim Hogan to Participate in Panel Discussion on “The Resurgence of Chip Design”

 
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – February 23, 2012 – Nimbic, the leading provider of Maxwell-accurate, 3D Full-Wave Electromagnetic Integrity solutions, today announced that Jim Hogan, Nimbic Board of Director, will join the panel discussion titled “The Resurgence of Chip Design” to be held at DVCon 2012 in San Jose, California.

Over the course of the last decade, many technologists claimed that in the future, the most important part of a new product would be software, not the underlying hardware. Hardware would be a commodity. Everyone would write unique software on top of off the shelf hardware to create a value add. The relevance of chip design, and career prospects for chip designers would be limited.

But what actually happened was quite different. Large technology firms have hired ever-growing teams of engineers to design the custom chips critical to the success of their upcoming products. Building your own ASIC is often the only way to reach the desired power, performance, and cost goals.

The DVCon 2012 Industry Leaders Panel will focus on better understanding the trends driving this resurgence.

WHAT: The Resurgence of Chip Design
WHERE: DVCon 2012, DoubleTree Hotel, San Jose, CA
WHEN: Tuesday, February 28, 2012, 2.30pm – 3.30pm
