Denali MemCon Series Kicks-Off in Taiwan

4/7/2004 - Denali Software, Inc., the leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) products for chip interface design and verification, will kick off the first of four Denali MemCon events tomorrow in Hsin Chu, Taiwan.

Held annually in Boston, San Jose, Tokyo, Denali MemCon has been expanded to Taiwan this year and provides a forum for exchanging information about semiconductor memory and PCI Express technology. It includes discussions on product roadmaps, technology for power and performance, market trends, design tools and intellectual property (IP) and advanced system design issues.

Tai Sheng Feng, vice president, technical staff, at UMC (TAIEX: 2303), is tomorrow's keynote and will discuss, "Semiconductor Foundries: Challenges & Geographic Competitiveness." Lane Mason, Denali's memory market analyst, will moderate a panel titled, "What Consumers Want Next!"

Presentations are planned on portable consumer electronics memories including low-power DDR and Flash. Attendees will learn design considerations for DDR2 DRAM from experts at leading memory companies, application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) library suppliers and electronic design automation (EDA) vendors. Special sessions will be held on design and verification for PCI Express technology.

In addition to Denali, sponsors are Altera Corporation; Artisan Components, Inc.; Infineon Technologies AG; Micron Technology, Inc.; UMC; and Virage Logic Corporation.

"Three-hundred designers in Taiwan registered for Denali MemCon during the first week registration opened," remarks Kevin Silver, Denali's vice president of marketing. "That's a clear message that this is an important and relevant topic for Taiwanese designers."

Denali MemCon moves to Boston Thursday, May 13, with the Tokyo event planned for September 8-9, and San Jose November 9-10. Registration is free for qualified industry professionals. For more details, visit:
