i-SEDEX

SOUTH KOREA--()--Dongbu HiTek today confirmed that it will host the sixth annual “Analog Semiconductor Leaders’ Forum” at the Korea International Exhibition Center (KINTEX) on October 8th. In addressing this year’s theme, “Analog IC Technologies Drive Smart Mobile Platform Evolution,” industry authorities will present insights on how innovative analog IC design and processing technologies will shape next-generation smart mobile devices including the ubiquitous smart phone.

This year’s Forum will once again be held during the i-SEDEX trade show, which opens its three day run on Monday, October 7th. The Tuesday Forum will commence at 10:00 AM with welcoming remarks from Chang-Sik Choi, Dongbu HiTek CEO, who will be followed by technical presentations below, the first of which will be keynote for the series:

“Wireless Charging Solution – Driving opportunities for the analog/power revolution”
Jeffery S. McCreary, CEO of Integrated Device Technology (IDT)
Future wireless power and charging technologies will be discussed along with main applications and design challenges as well as emerging industry standards. Latest developments in two predominant technologies for wireless power transfer in the consumer market will be reviewed.

“Digital Power Management, Dead or Still Alive? Where is it headed?”
Mansour Izadinia, Senior VP of Micrel for High Performance Linear and Power Solutions
Digital Power technology definitions, markets and applications will be presented, along with a roadmap that this emerging technology could follow. Specific foundry requirements to support the implementation of advanced Digital Power Management ICs will be outlined.

“The latest application examples for Hall Effect Sensor”
Terada Masato, GM of Magnetic Sensor Group, Asahi Kasei Microdevices (AKM)
While Hall Effect Sensors have been extensively used to control disk drive spindle motors and PC fan motors, more recent control applications include the electric compass and digital camera position sensing. These will be among the latest applications reviewed in this presentation.

“CMOS Image Sensors in Cell Phones, Cars and Beyond”
Patrick Feng, GM of BYD Microelectronics and Ningbo BYD Semiconductor
CMOS Image Sensors continue to penetrate an ever broader range of applications, most notably as high-resolution imagers for digital still and video in smart phones and for automobiles. The presentation reviews color filter schemes, imager architecture, post-image processing, and packaging.

“Voice Interaction comes of age – Controlling consumer electronics with voice commands”
Saleel Awsare, VP/GM for Conexant Systems audio businesses
The latest advances in voice communication and Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) front-end processing will be discussed. The necessary hardware and software requirements to enable a seamless, robust solution that realizes the promise of voice interaction will be covered.

The final technology presentation will be given by Heung-Soo Park, SVP of Dongbu HiTek who oversees the Korean foundry’s Process Development Center. He will review specialized analog-intensive processing developments and what further advances can be expected to support fabless companies targeting the smart mobile market.
