Virage Logic Keynotes 90-Nanometer Design Challenges at Semico

1/7/2004 - Adam Kablanian, president and CEO for Virage Logic Corp. (Nasdaq: VIRL), will present a keynote address at the Semico Impact Conference Series “90 Nanometer and Beyond” that is being held in Taipei, Taiwan on January 8, 2004. 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, and Mr. Kablanian is emerging as a voice for the industry on matters related to semiconductor IP quality.

“The complexity facing IP vendors at 90nm and beyond is astounding,” said Kablanian. “The term ‘silicon-proven’ takes on new meaning and brings with it new challenges at these process geometries. Comprehensive IP qualification programs are an absolute must, and IP vendors need to lead the charge on this particular front.”

The Semico Conferences are held quarterly. Tackling the most pressing business and technology issues facing the semiconductor industry, this event will address the challenges of “90 Nanometer and Beyond”. The event will be held on January 8, 2004, at the Grand Formosa Regent, Taipei, from 8:00 AM to 6:35 PM. For more information, visit
