Embedded & VLSI Design Conference

Semiconductors have made real what our ancestors would consider magic. The convergence of technology with modern life has reached a state where dependence of human life on semiconductor technology is ubiquitous. Intelligent systems are revolutionizing a variety of industries to help improve energy efficiency, quality, and flexibility of systems. To achieve these superior experience massive amount of researches are ongoing in the field of algorithms, embedded HW/SW design, IP core design and SoCs. These are well backed up by govt policies, standards and industry forums.

Incredible demand on functionality in a chip in a given power/thermal envelope forcing transistor geometries go smaller which is imposing newer challenges in VLSI design and associated EDA tools/flows/methodologies. In 33rd International Conference of VLSI Design and 19th International Conference on Embedded Design, we plan to bring together all the leaders from industries, academia, industry bodies, government, standard organizations to go over all technology enablers

Differences Between Print Design and Web Design

It is an astounding experience to walk the halls at the annual meeting of the Society for News Design (SND): every wall is covered with full-pages spreads from the best-designed newspapers around the world. The book reprinting the award-winning pages is a great design resource, but the physical presence of the full-size newsprint was utterly overwhelming.

Newspaper designers have a huge canvas to play with. Their designs can be striking and yet intricate and pack much more impact than a web page; especially because the entire double-page spread is in-your-face in a fraction of a second. Wham, here’s the news.

The page in the figure is a great example of the possibilities in print: a large, high-resolution map sets the stage for a story about Chile and does double duty as an information graphic for several data nuggets. More data is visualized in smaller graphics around the page. And, of

Design Crush – Art, Design & Inspiration



December 18, 2019

It must have been May or June when Getaway first popped up on my radar. Their tiny cabins nestled in nature were instantly appealing to my boyfriend, Aaron, and I – we’re not very outdoorsy, but loved the idea of getting off the grid for even an evening and were thrilled that dogs are welcome. We’d originally planned for a trip timed to the changing leaves in autumn, but life intervened and we weren’t able to make it happen. Lucky for us, Getaway reached out last month to see if we wanted to try out their Beaver Creek outpost in Ohio that’s only a short 35 minute drive from our house.

Our overnight trip was scheduled for early December, the perfect time to sneak away during the holiday hustle. (Also, part of my plan to not over-stress this month!) In the weeks leading
