Keynote Address on the "State and Evolution of the Fabless Industry Model" by Wim Roelandts, Xilinx Chairman and CEO and Fabless Semiconductor Association Chairman
Tuesday, September 30, 9:05 a.m. - 9:50 a.m.
In his keynote address, Wim Roelandts will discuss the "State and Evolution of the Fabless Industry Model."
