IEEE Council on EDA Presents Talk on Digital Analog Design by Stanford's Mark Horowitz During DAC

Will Outline How Analog Tools Can Be More Like Digital Design Tools (May 09, 2012)

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 05/09/12 -- Mark Horowitz, chairman of Stanford University's Electrical Engineering Department, will offer a look at Digital Analog Design during the 49th Design Automation Conference (DAC), as part of the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) Distinguished Speaker Series.

The talk will be held during lunch Tuesday, June 5, from 11:45 a.m.-1:30 p.m. in Room #303 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. It is open to all DAC attendees on a first-come, first-served basis.

In his talk, Professor Horowitz will describe the advances in digital design tools over the last 30 years, contrasting the more modest progress in analog tools. He will illustrate digital tools' use of abstractions to allow them to validate that implementations match functional models and that the composition of cells matches the composition of the functional models. Professor Horowitz will explain why this is more difficult for analog circuits and outline how it can be done by illustrating ways to formally validate analog models, define analog fault models, and efficiently explore the effect of process variations.

In addition to his role as department chair, he is the Yahoo! Founders Professor at Stanford University and a founder of Rambus, Inc. Professor Horowitz is a fellow of IEEE and ACM and is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and the American Academy of Arts and Science. Dr. Horowitz's research interests span using electrical engineering and computer science analysis methods to problems in molecular biology to creating new design methodologies for analog and digital VLSI circuits. He received Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Electrical Engineering from MIT, and a Ph.D. from Stanford.

Professor Horowitz's talk is organized by Joel Phillips of Cadence Design Systems and Technical Activities chair for CEDA. To learn more about CEDA and its Distinguished Speaker Series or details, go to:

About the IEEE Council on EDA
The IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) provides a focal point for EDA activities spread across six IEEE societies (Antennas and Propagation; Circuits and Systems; Computer; Electron Devices; Microwave Theory and Techniques; and Solid State Circuits). It sponsors more than 12 conferences, including the Design Automation Conference (DAC), International Conference in CAD (ICCAD) and Design Automation and Test in Europe (DATE). CEDA publishes IEEE Transactions on CAD and the IEEE Embedded Systems Letters. CEDA is increasingly involved in recognizing its leaders via the A. Richard Newton Award, Early Career Award and Phil Kaufmann Award. CEDA welcomes volunteers and local chapters. For more information, go to:
