Global Sources has opened the fifth annual Embedded Systems Conference-Taiwan (ESC-Taiwan) and the 13th annual Electronic Design Automation & Test-Taiwan Conference & Exhibition (EDA&T-Taiwan).

Mark Saunderson, president of Global Sources' Electronics Business Unit, said, "Taiwan is Asia-Pacific's most important IC design center. Its semiconductor industry is expected to generate $37 billion in production revenue in 2005.

"ESC-Taiwan and EDA&T-Taiwan provide an opportunity for Taiwan's design engineers and technical managers to learn the latest technologies from the industry's leading embedded systems suppliers and EDA tool providers. And it enables these companies to meet Taiwan's IC design community face-to-face, under one roof," he added.

Three of the world's largest semiconductor companies-Freescale, Renesas and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC)-are taking part in this year's events. Other participating vendors include Agilent Technologies, Ansoft, Cadence Design Systems, Cirrus Logic, IBM Taiwan, Mentor Graphics, Synopsys and Wind River.

Thirty-eight percent more companies joined this year's events compared to last year. New participants include ARM Taiwan, EE Solutions, Esmertec, HCL Technologies, Microtime Computer, MIPS Technologies, MontaVista Software, Phoenix Technologies, Rambus Inc., SafeNet, Spansion and Terasic Technologies.

Saunderson stated, "Last year's ESC-Taiwan and EDA&T-Taiwan attracted more than 3,000 designers and technical managers. Pre-registration figures indicate that attendance this year is likely to top last year's record."

Most of those who attended the 2004 events play a strategic role in the decision-making process. Eighty-three percent of visitors at ESC-Taiwan 2004 were already using embedded systems or planning to do so. At EDA&T-Taiwan, 66 percent of visitors were planning to purchase EDA tools within the next 18 months.

Seventy-six percent of those who attended last year's events were design or development engineers, 17 percent were engineering managers and 7 percent were test engineers.

This year's seminar program provides Taiwan designers with the opportunity to learn new technologies direct from international technology vendors.

EDA&T-Taiwan seminars are scheduled to be hosted by EDA tool companies and distributors including ARC International, Cadence Design Systems, EE Solutions, EverCAD Software, IBM Taiwan, Maojet Technology, Mentor Graphics, PLD Applications, Sequence Design, Sierra Design Automation, Virage Logic and Wipro Technologies.

At ESC-Taiwan, seminars are scheduled to be hosted by embedded systems providers including Agilent Technologies, ARM, Freescale, National Instruments, Renesas, SafeNet Taiwan, Spansion, Tektronix, Tensilica, TeraSoft and Wind River.
