SANTA CLARA, Calif., January 24, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–DesignCon, the nation’s largest event for chip, board and system design engineers, today announced the event’s return to Santa Clara, Calif., with an esteemed guest lineup paving the way for the 2022 edition of the conference and exhibition. Scheduled for April 5-7 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, the must-attend event featured the most sought-after experts to headline the conference and provide attendees with an in-depth analysis of emerging technologies impacting design engineers. and software developers. Held at the heart of electronics innovation, DesignCon facilitates industry connection and propels the industry through three days of technical and forward-looking education, exhibits and networking.

This year’s keynote speakers represent the world’s most influential institutions. They are responsible for fueling the adoption and continuous refinement of advanced technologies that accelerate the sophistication of design engineering practices. DesignCon 2022 keynote speakers include:

  • John BowerFred Kavli Chair in Nanotechnology, University of California, Santa Barbara

  • Laurence MoroneyHead of Artificial Intelligence, Google

  • Jose Moreyconsultant for NASA, IBM, Hyperloop Transportation and Liberty BioSecurity Health and technology Speaker, medical consultant

For over 27 years, DesignCon has served as a one-stop-shop for peer-to-peer connection and industry education, providing a platform to gather solutions to real-world challenges and meet the most coveted companies. in the field of semiconductors and design. engineering space. The robust exhibition hall of the annual event provides an ideal platform for striking quality agreements. Ninety percent of participants recommend, specify, or make the final purchase decision at the show and 75% of respondents are looking for solutions for an active or planned project within the next 12 monthsfacilitating new designs and business relationships that advance the industry.

With the 2022 edition, DesignCon welcomes the industry influencer Amphenol as the new host sponsor. In addition to the presence of Amphenol on the floor of the exhibition, Keysight Technologies, Luxshare-Ict; Mentor, a Siemens company; Rohde & Schwarz; Samtec; Teledyne Le Croyamong others, are confirmed to exhibit and bring their leading design and development engineers and executive engineering leadership, each inspiring the next breakthrough innovations.

“We couldn’t be more excited to share what this year’s edition of DesignCon has in store for the design engineering community, from our lineup of world-class speakers to an expanded focus on IoT. and automotive electronics and intelligence education,” said Suzanne Deffree, Group Event Director, DesignCon. “Year after year, DesignCon serves as a launching pad for innovation and industry progression, with networking opportunities and education reflecting trends and providing solutions to the challenges our community faces daily. Artificial Intelligence/ machine learning, 5G and 6G, automotive electronics and space technologies are some of the emerging and sophisticated technologies that offer immense opportunities but have yet to be polished for widespread adoption – We are proud to bring together the industry’s most eminent experts in these areas, and more, for our community to learn and connect. I’m preparing for an exciting event and look forward to sharing more details over the coming weeks.”

Progress Enabled: the convergence of photonic and electronic integrated circuits
John Bowers, Fred Kavli Professor of Nanotechnology, University of California, Santa Barbara

In his keynote presentation, Bowers will discuss the advancements that will determine the future direction of the data center and place silicon photonics at the heart of this push. Silicon photonics is rapidly advancing in performance and capabilities with multiple manufacturing facilities and foundries featuring advanced passive and active devices including modulators, photodetectors and lasers. Integrating photonics with electronics has been key to increasing the speed and overall bandwidth of silicon photonics-based assemblies, with multiple approaches to realizing transceivers with capacities of 3.2 Tbps and more. Advances in electronics have been rapid, with state-of-the-art chips including switches with tens of billions of transistors. However, the performance of the electronic system is often limited by the inputs/outputs (I/O) and the power required to drive the connections at a speed of several tens of Gbit/s. Fortunately, the convergence of advances in silicon photonics and electronics means that co-packaged photonics and silicon electronics enable continuous improvement in both areas and drive innovation in both.

The realities of AI and machine learning: cut through the hype and into production
Laurence Moroney, Head of Artificial Intelligence, Google

We’ve all heard of the potential of AI and machine learning. But the truth is a golden needle hidden in a huge haystack of hype. How do you know which is which? Moroney will cut through the hype in his keynote, talking about what AI is and, more importantly, what it isn’t. Attendees will learn about real-world applications from a developer’s perspective, how machine learning offers users a new programming paradigm that makes AI possible, and how to solve previously infeasible problems using minimal code.
