Power.org Announces Hundreds Converge at Power Architecture®
Conferences in Taiwan, Japan, and China
Engineers, software developers, executives, and researchers
from throughout the area joined Power.org members for technical
sessions, hands-on labs, engaging keynotes and vendor demonstrations.
PISCATAWAY, N.J. – December 16,
2008 – Power.org, the organization that promotes and develops
standards for Power Architecture technology, today announced that its
Asian Power Architecture® Conferences drew record attendance to hear
the latest developments on Power Architecture expertise and technology
and participate in hands on training for next-generation product design.
The events, held in Hsinchu, Taiwan, Tokyo, Japan, and Beijing, China,
featured experts from Cadence, D2, Freescale, Global Graphics,
IBM, Lautherbach, Silicontek, Synopsys, and Virtutech, and drew design
teams and managers from the aerospace, consumer, industrial, networking,
storage, and wired/wireless communications sectors.
“The success of these events underscores the strong interest we
continue to see in Power Architecture technology as a critical element
in systems driving tomorrow’s connected world, not only in Asia,
but throughout Europe and North America,” said Power.org™ Marketing
Committee Chair Fawzi Behmann. “The technical and market insights
from market leaders presented at these events will accelerate the
use of Power Architecture technology in diverse applications and
markets and its widespread application throughout the region.”
Fifteen Power Architecture design specialists
provided in-depth information and design insights on the Power Architecture
roadmap, technical initiatives like multicore and virtualization, and
layered solutions including SoC, license core, simulation, and verification
to the more than 400 engineers, software developers, executives, and
researchers, 40-50% of whom are actively working on Power Architecture
designs. Solution success stories, promotional strategy and an
interactive panel discussion, focused on solving challenges with multicore
development, were among the new features added to the program following
the EUR-PAC conference held in May.
Ten state-of-the-art solution and product
demonstrations by members of Power.org addressed complemented case studies
showcasing the successful use of Power Architecture products in commercial
systems and provided attendees with practical tips that could be leveraged
in their own designs.
In addition to invaluable technical information,
the Power Architecture conferences presented unique opportunities for
attendees to network and strengthen relationships with other business
leaders and technical experts from within the Power Architecture community.
Throughout the event, attendees commented on how the rich content presented
at the events deepened their understanding of Power Architecture technology
and its value to their next design process.
Power.org’s global conferences and online
training programs drew more than 760 attendees throughout 2008, an increase
of 210% over 2007. “The heightened participation in Power.org’s
training programs is a clear indication of their value as more and more
companies across a wide spectrum of applications and markets seek the
benefits provided by Power Architecture technology,” said Kaveh Massoudian,
CTO, Power.org Strategic Alliance, Systems & Technology Group, IBM.
“We look forward to actively supporting Power.org’s ongoing educational
outreach in 2009, and to working closely with design teams to speed
new solutions to their customers.”
Based on the success of the 2008 training
programs, Power.org is working on a schedule of events for 2009 that
may address new trends and applications of new technology, Power management
solutions, multicore software and hardware design and debugging, virtualization,
successful ISA migration from x86, Arm or MIPS, success of Power Architecture
applications in the auto industry, and other topics. A complete
schedule of events will be available in early 2009 at
