„Smart Systems“ Require Innovations of Microelectronics - edaWorkshop13 with Comprehensive Program
From Mai 14 – 16, 2013 international science and economic experts will get together at the edaWorkshop13 in Dresden for the publication and discussion of application-oriented EDA research findings, that lead to innovations in microelectronics which are mandatory for “Smart Systems” as well as applications in the sector of electric cars, energy supply etc.
The edaWorkshop is an excellent platform for scientists, academic researchers and industry to present application-oriented EDA research findings, exchange ideas and conclude further assignments.
The event is organized jointly by the edacentrum, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the GI/GMM/ITG RSS Steering Group for “Computer-aided Circuit and System Design”. Like in 2009 and 2011 the edaWorkshop is organized in co-operation with the annually CATRENE Design Technology Conference (DTC).
The event features 11 sessions with a number of different topics and more than 30 presentations including following 6 keynotes: “The Industrial Deployment of the Silicon Photonics Technology” by Maurizio Zuffada (ST Microelectronics), “Virtual Fabrication for Advanced CMOS” by Gerold Schröpfer (Coventor), “Design Challenges for Advanced CMOS” by Hans-Jürgen Brand (Globalfoundries), “Quality and Innovation – Drivers for Modern Automotive Electronics” by Ulrich Abelein (AUDI), “Building Supercomputers from Mobile Processors” by Alex Ramirez (University of Barcelona) and “Electromagnetic Simulation for Electronic Systems” by Raúl Camposano (Nimbic).
Among the participants of the concluding panel discussion of the first day on „Closing the Gap Between Technology and Application Needs “ are Thomas Hötzel (ELMOS), Wolfgang Nebel (OFFIS) Martin Barnasconi (NXP).
The three days event is a balanced combination of information and communication. It not only offers a wide range of discussions on specialized subjects and EDA research projects, but also provides several networking opportunities. This is supported by a comprehensive poster exhibition, where demonstrations and prototypes will also be presented.
Scientists and representatives from industry particularly with regard to the sector of microelectronics are kindly invited to register until May 6, 2013 at the latest. The event creates ideal opportunities for a professional exchange of ideas on a scientific basis. Registration form and further information can be found on: www.edacentrum.de/edaworkshop

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers
Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...
Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.
At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...
3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects
A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...
Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
