Challenges of Nanometer Design to be Presented by Virage Logic's CEO

4/24/2003 - Adam Kablanian, president and CEO for Virage Logic Corp. (Nasdaq: VIRL), will present the keynote address at the 2003 Semico Impact Conference Series. Virage Logic, a leading provider of best-in-class semiconductor IP platforms, is deeply involved in the growing development of the 90-nanometer (nm) process technology.

“Circuit design know-how and silicon-aware IP are critical for 90nm and beyond,” said Kablanian. “IP that works the first time and is ready for manufacturing will be one of many challenges to overcome in order to design and produce System-on-Chips (SoCs) in volume. This challenge presents an interesting opportunity for technology solutions that can reduce the NRE costs of prototyping chips without sacrificing performance or density.”

The Semico Conference Series are held quarterly. Tackling the most pressing business and technology issues facing the semiconductor industry, this April 29th event will address the challenges of “90 Nanometer and Beyond”. The event will be held at the Silicon Valley Conference Center, San Jose, from 8:45 AM to 3:45 PM. For more information, visit
