Smart device market has grown explosively over the last several years and the expansion continues at an unparelled rate. And the newest technology driver has created an immense market for mobile applications: mobile App stores are enabling annual downloads of 102 billion in 2013 with the anticipated CAGR of over 25% subsequently for several years. Consumers are enjoying endless variety of mobile Applications and, as more sophiticated and advanced user experiences are required, software developers and device makers are in constant pursuit of highest performing, yet power efficient, silicon components.
In my talk, I would like to discuss how today's top silicon providers are responding to such demand while introducing Samsung's unique industry leading low power technologies.

He has been responsible for the development of many mobile/home SOCs including Mobile application
processors, DVD player/recorder SOC, Digital TV SOC and Digital Still Camera SOC. His role is to bring the best SOC on time to the market.
Previously, he was with IBM Austin Research Lab on Giga-hertz CPU development, Texas A&M University,
and Motorola on formal verification tools.
Jaehong Park received B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electronics Engineering from Seoul National University,
Seoul, Korea in 1988 and 1990 respectively, and Ph.D degree in electrical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 1995.
The Mathematics Behind SoC Technology:
towards systems on system hyper-integration?
Kamran Eshraghian
iDataMap Corporation, Australia
History highlights that equations have no immediate influence during their initial inception and needed imagination and significant assistance to open a new pathway for the humanity and hence transform the world through innovation that usually took a different direction than what was anticipated. Much of such thinking have been the driver for global economy and business as we have today. The presentation will explore the influence of key equations that have been the driving force behind the current technology platform and will make an attempt to address the needed “ingredients” as we move towards Systems-on-System integration.

Kamran Eshraghian received his B.Tech., M.Eng.Sc., and Ph.D., degrees from the University of Adelaide, South Australia in 1969,1977 and 1980 respectively. In 2004 he was awarded the Dr.-Ing e.h., from the University of Ulm, Germany, for his research into integration of nanoelectronics with that of light wave technology. He is best known in international arena as being one of the fathers of CMOS VLSI having influenced two generations of researchers in both academia and industry. In 1979, he joined the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Adelaide, South Australia, after spending some ten years with Philips Research, both in Australia and Europe. In 1994, he was invited to take up the Foundation Chair of Computer, Electronics and Communications Engineering in Western Australia, and became Head of School of Engineering and Mathematics, and Distinguished University Professor and subsequently became the Director of Electron Science Research Institute. In 2004 he became founder/President of Elabs as part of his vision for horizontal integration of nanoelectronics with those of bio and photon-based technologies, thus creating a new design domain for System on System (SoS) integration. In 2007 he was the holder of inaugural Ferrero Family Chair in Electrical Engineering and visiting Professor of Engineering at University of California Merced prior to his move in 2009 to Chungbuk National University, Korea, as Distinguished Professor, World Class University (WCU) program. He has co-authored six textbooks and has lectured widely in very large scale integrated and multi technology systems. He has founded six high technology companies, providing intimate link between university research and industry. Prof. Eshraghian currently is the President/Chairman of iDataMap Corporation and is also a Fellow and life member of the Institution of Engineers, Australia.
Creativity by Design: Next Generation SoC Design Approaches
Martin Lund
Senior Vice President, IP Group
Cadence Design Systems, Inc.
The pressure to be first to market with innovative new features continues to increase. Designers will be pushed even more for creative approaches to create winning SoC designs. This presentation will discuss two areas where creativity will be more important than ever: 1) creative approaches to implementing new algorithms so they are more energy efficient and can be delivered to market much quicker, and 2) new management approaches to IP re-use.

Martin Lund is senior vice president of the IP Group at Cadence. His primary focus is to expand the
Cadence® design intellectual property (IP) portfolio, enabling customers to realize their system-on-chip
(SoC) products faster, cheaper, and with higher quality. This is a strategic growth area for Cadence that
includes all digital and analog IP development and design services engagements.

Prior to joining Cadence, Lund spent 12 years at Broadcom, most recently as senior vice president
and general manager of Broadcom's Network Switching Business. Under his vision and leadership,
Broadcom became the undisputed global leader in Ethernet switch silicon for data center, service
provider, enterprise, and SMB markets. Before Broadcom, Lund held various marketing and senior
engineering management positions at Intel Corporation and Case Technology.

Lund is an inventor on 26 issued and pending US patents. He holds a technical degree from
Frederiksberg Technical College and Risø National Laboratory at the Technical University of Denmark.

Outlook and Challenges of Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
Protection of Modern and Future Integrated Circuits
Juin J. Liou
Pegasus Distinguished Professor/Lockheed Martin St. Laurent Professor of Engineering
University of Central Florida, Orlando, Florida, USA
Chang Jiang Scholar Endowed Professor, Ministry of Education, China
Fellow of IEEE, Fellow of IET
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is one of the most prevalent threats to electronic components. It is an event in which a finite amount of charge is transferred from one object (i.e., human body) to the other (i.e., microchip). This process can result in a very high current passing through the microchip within a very short period of time, and more than 35% of chip damages can be attributed to such an event. As such, designing on-chip ESD structures to protect integrated circuits against the ESD stress is a high priority in the semiconductor industry. The continuing scaling of CMOS technology makes the ESD-induced failures even more prominent, and one can predict with certainty that the availability of effective and robust ESD protection solutions will become a critical and essential component to the successful advancement and commercialization of the next-generation CMOS-based electronics.
An overview on the ESD sources, models, protection schemes, and testing will first be given in this talk. This is followed by presenting the challenges of designing and realizing ESD protection solutions for modern and next-generation integrated circuits.

Juin J. Liou received the B.S. (honors), M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Florida, Gainesville, in 1982, 1983, and 1987, respectively. In 1987, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Central Florida (UCF), Orlando, Florida where he is now the UCF Pegasus Distinguished Professor and Lockheed Martin St. Laurent Professor of Engineering.
