Deep Technology Insights and Innovation to be found at the 56th Design Automation Conference in Las Vegas

Expanded conference program offers the latest research and development in artificial intelligence, machine learning, security, electronic design and cloud-based design.

LAS VEGAS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 29, 2019 — When the 56th  Design Automation Conference opens June 2, in Las Vegas, several first-time and returning exhibitors will greet design engineers as they embark on a week-long journey turning sin city into tech city. Exhibitors such as IBM Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft and Google, Inc. as well as the presence of long-time exhibitors Cadence Design Systems, Mentor, a Siemens Business, and Synopsys will be showcasing the latest technology advances for the electronic design industry.

More than 50 companies will exhibit at the Las Vegas Convention Center, including 21 first-time exhibitors to the show. DAC has always attracted electronics systems designers, who are inventing tomorrow. The companies that exhibit at DAC realize if they want to contribute to the future of design, then DAC is the event to attend.

Rob van Blommestein, DAC Exhibits Chair and vice president of marketing at One Spin, said driving the surge in DAC’s exhibit participation has been a steady expansion of the technical program targeted towards designers and IT professionals in recent years. This year’s DAC program features technical topics such as AI/machine learning, autonomous systems, and security, along with the traditional technical sessions on electronic design automation (EDA), IP and embedded systems. Highlighting the exhibition floor is the addition of the Design Infrastructure Alley, featuring exhibitors targeting the IT and design-on-cloud engineers, and the Design-on-Cloud Pavilion sponsored by Google, hosting daily presentations.

“No other event brings the entire design ecosystem together into a place where designers, researchers and decision-makers can interact with each other while seeing and learning first-hand the latest innovations, tools and best practices,” said 56th DAC General Chair, Rob Aitken.

DAC Pavilion

The DAC Pavilion, sponsored by Cadence, has become a tradition for attendees to enjoy daily SKY Talks (mini-keynotes), straight talk chats with industry leaders and intriguing panel discussions. This year the Pavilion will feature a Hack@DAC - live demo of how Mirai malware works on real IoT devices. The demo will illustrate the attack process step by step to explain the attack mechanisms as well as the consequences in detail for each attack stage.
