Future Horizons Reveals Details of International Fabless Forum

10/10/2005 - Future Horizons, Europe's leading electronics analyst, announced the line up for its 2005 International Fabless Forum (IFF2005). The third annual event will be staged at the Hilton Hotel in Antwerp, Belgium, from 13 to 15 November.

The theme for IFF2005 is 'Riding the Cusp of Change' and will explore the global fabless and chipless design house industry and include presentations from world-renown industry keynote speakers, plus the latest market research and industry analysis forecasts from Future Horizons.

"Having survived both the worst recession and funding drought in semiconductor history, the fabless community now faces two new hurdles; a shortage of wafer fab capacity - just when firms were hoping to cash in on their past R&D - and a nanometre design brick wall - threatening their design competence," said Malcolm Penn, Chief Executive, Future Horizons.

The IFF2005 forum provides a platform to debate how to turn the challenges faced by the fables industry into business success, both via formal presentations, panel sessions and informal one-on-one networking.

Confirmed Speakers for IFF2005 include (in alphabetical company order):

There will also be two panel discussions, allowing industry experts to debate the issues that start-ups face designing at 65nm and below, and the challenge of raising funding and matching the demands of shareholders with the development of the a product.

Targeted at the fabless, chipless and IC design industry, IFF2005 is a high-profile all-inclusive business development event, with meetings and accommodation all under the same roof, both for delegate convenience and to facilitate interaction.

Delegate places at IFF2005, Hilton Hotel, Antwerp, Belgium, from 13 to 15 November are available priced £1,695.
