    Keynotes Program

    Keynote 1: Emerging Integrated Systems, Technology and Design

    Speaker:
    • Giovanni DeMicheli, EPFL
    Three new game changers enable the design of emerging electronic systems: the use of new devices and materials, the combined integration of circuits and sensors and the application of new design methods and tools that enable the correct composition of complex systems from regular components. These ingredients are crucial to design systems in various key areas, such as medical electronics, the Internet of Things, navigational systems and environmental protection. This talk will survey the raise of enhanced-functionality devices, exploiting new materials and geometries, their application into circuits that provide direct data acquisition from the environment, by fusing sensors and circuits, as well as the potential of new design methods and tools for the creation of complex systems.

    Keynote 2: Quantum Computing, Quantum Bits, and CMOS

    Speaker:
    • Edoardo Charbon, TU-Delft
    Quantum computing holds the promise of large gains in computation speed thanks to the use of superposition and entanglement, two quantum effects enabling massive levels of parallelism. In quantum computers, quantum bits (qubits) are the fundamental information unit, implemented as solid-state device in a number of ways. Common to most implementations is the use of ultra-deep-cryogenic temperatures (~mK) to ensure long coherence time, nonetheless qubits are fragile devices, that can be made more robust by means of error-correcting classical loops. We propose to implement such loops in standard CMOS technology operating at deep-cryogenic temperatures (~4K) near the qubits, thus promoting compactness and scalability. The talk will outline the challenges and limitations of operating CMOS in deep-cryogenic regimes and solutions will be proposed. The talk includes several examples showing the suitability of integrating fault-tolerant qubits with CMOS.

    Keynote 3: Automotive megatrends are driving the semiconductor space

    Speaker:
    • Michael Neuhaeuser, Infineon Technologies
    The automotive market was in the past not seen as the innovation driver for the electronic industry with some exceptions (e.g. power semiconductor). In the meanwhile this has changed tremendously and we can read it every day in the press: electric cars, autonomous driving, CO2 emission, functional safety etc.. A car is today the most complex electronic system an end consumer can buy and it is becoming a driver also for the semiconductor world. Four megatrends are shaping the automotive market, significantly increasing the semiconductor content per vehicle and creates new challenges for the complete development chain. In this speech these trends are explained and the impact towards the necessary semiconductor technologies.

    Panels Program

    Panel 1: Circuits/Systems and EDA: What is the chicken and what is the egg?

    Participants:
    • Giovanni de Micheli, EPFL
    • Jacques Olivier Piednoir, Cadence
    • Luca Benini, ETHZ
    • Victor Grimblatt, Synopsys
    Moderator: Victor Grimblatt
    Circuits and systems have evolved since the 60s and 70s. At the beginning we had circuits with a few transistors and no software. At the end of the 80s we were able to integrate a million of transistors in a single chip and the software component was still very small. Today we are able to integrate billions of transistors in a single chip mixing digital and analog signals into the same chip. The software component has become a predominant part of the system. This evolution has requested automation as it is almost impossible to design current circuits and systems without sophisticated design and manufacturing tools. This session will address the evolution of EDA (Electronic Design Automation) trying to answer the question “Circuits/Systems and EDA: What is the chicken and what is the egg?”
