Design Automation Conference 2014

From June 01, 2014 to June 05, 2014
The Moscone Convention Center, 747 Howard St San Francisco United States

The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier event for the design of electronic circuits and systems, electronic design automation (EDA) and embedded systems and software (ESS).

Members are from a diverse worldwide community of more than 1,000 organizations that attend each year, represented by system designers and architects, logic and circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior managers and executives, and researchers and academicians from leading universities. 
Close to 300 technical presentations and sessions are selected by a committee of electronic design experts offer information on recent developments and trends, management practices and new products, methodologies and technologies. 

A highlight of DAC is its exhibition and suite area with approximately 200 of the leading and emerging EDA, silicon, intellectual property (IP), embedded systems and design services providers. 

The conference is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDA Consortium), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and is supported by ACM's Special Interest Group on Design.

Some of the highlights of this year's DAC include:

  • Keynotes by industry leaders/visionaries
  • Technical Program (panels, special sessions, Designer Track)
  • Forums, tutorials, and workshops
  • Management Day
  • Exhibition Floor
  • Colocated Conferences
  • Awards for professionals and students


And there's much more.  To learn more about DAC, go to:

3DS Solutions Featured

Dassault Systèmes Solutions Featured at the 2014 Design Automation Conference

This year, we are showcasing four solutions that provide strategic support for your integrated circuit development. Each solution is part of our Silicon Thinking Industry Solution Experience. These four solutions increase:

  • IP management and reuse
  • Requirements and test traceability
  • Full development cycle issue/defect information integration
  • Distributed engineering team collaboration
  • Improved packaging reliability
  • Manufacturing yield analytics



Semiconductor Design Collaboration

Intelligently share hierarchical design data to facilitate collaboration amongst members of globally dispersed design teams.

Designers gain “Instant ON” access to the latest design data to make informed design decisions, without the need to invoke expensive design tools and wait for the latest version of a design to load.


Semiconductor Enterprise IP Management

Meet accelerated customer demand for the latest generation technology through IP reuse. Effectively manage and reuse internally produced and externally acquired design data. Understand where it is used, track issues and defects through multiple projects while also protecting that IP from inappropriate use.


Semiconductor Requirements Driven Verification

Manage complex data relationships, integrate operational silos, and meet time to market deadlines with a verification and validation data management platform that allows for end-to-end traceability from product definition to end product configuration. All aspects of the verification and validation flow, from system architecture validation, through final die and package test are managed, tracked and documented.


Semiconductor Manufacturing Collaboration

Manage complex product execution where dyes from the same wafer are part of multiple product SKU’s. Organize multiple sourcing networks to meet volume requirements, mitigate risk (natural disasters) and to optimize for cost (such as currency fluctuations). Track, trace and audit supplier qualifications. Specify and qualify design and manufacturing data before it is handed to the downstream manufacturing systems to eliminate errors.
