ESC Silicon Valley Joins Forces With the Fifth Multicore Expo in San Jose

Nov 4, 2009

EE Times Group, a division of United Business Media [LON: UBM], announced today that ESC Silicon Valley, the global electronics industry's leading event, will take place in combination with Multicore Expo, the premier forum devoted to the multicore technologies that are transforming the embedded computing industry. At this co-located event taking place in San Jose April 26-29, 2010, ESC Silicon Valley will provide the embedded community with four days of technical training and the Multicore Expo will provide three days of technical training and an exclusive Multicore Pavilion on the ESC Silicon Valley expo floor.

ESC, working closely with the Multicore Expo, will provide attendees with more training options and an increased number of multicore-related exhibits through this combined event offering. Sponsors of the Multicore Expo will also benefit from this collaboration due to ESC's ability to deliver increased exposure to the embedded community through EE Times Group's vast network of industry leading media properties including EE Times, Embedded and TechOnline.

The three day Multicore Expo program will include thought-provoking panel discussions, in-depth technical sessions, hands-on labs, and sponsored presentations, all of which will cover a wide range of topics related to multicore, multimedia, and embedded graphics. Attendees will also enjoy the 'Multicore Technology Headliners', special presentations delivered by industry luminaries and elite sponsors.

Located on the ESC expo floor, the Multicore Pavilion will consist of a wide variety of exhibits from leaders in the multicore industry, providing attendees with the opportunity to see multicore technology in action as well as network with leading experts in multicore hardware and software implementations. As well, Multicore Expo attendees will be able to attend events held in the ESC Theater, which is open to all event attendees.

"Multicore technology has become a very important component of embedded systems design. We are excited to have the Multicore Expo taking place under the same roof as our Embedded Systems Conference," said David Blaza, Vice President, Events and Embedded at EE Times Group. "Our recent success with over 3000 attendees at our Multicore Virtual Conference is indicative of the pent-up demand for quality multicore technology training."

"As multicore implementations proliferate in a wide range of applications, the challenges associated with programming, debugging, and optimization are making Multicore Expo more important than ever as a forum in which the key issues of the multicore ecosystem can be raised, debated, and solved," said Markus Levy, Multicore Expo conference chair. "Working with EE Times Group, we will bring to the attendees of the Multicore Expo, a tremendous amount of knowledge that will help bridge the gap between hardware and software in the use of multicore technology."

As of today, the Industry sponsors include the Multicore Association, EEMBC, and Platinum Sponsor Wind River Systems. ESC Silicon Valley and Multicore Expo registration will open the first week of December.
