The International Society for Quality Electronic Design (ISQED.org) today named Dr. Chi-Foon Chan, Synopsys president and chief operating officer (COO), as its first fellow in an awards ceremony at the ISQED04 conference. The prestigious ISQED fellowship program recognizes individuals with extensive technical knowledge in electronic design automation (EDA) and integrated circuit (IC) design who provide ISQED with long-term vision and critical leadership in steering the society and conference's technical direction.
"Dr. Chan has played a crucial role in steering the ISQED
symposium since its initiation in 2000," stated
In addition to the fellowship, ISQED named eight distinguished members and 17 senior members from the university, design and EDA communities. More information about these memberships and the ISQED fellow program are available at www.isqed.org.

The International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design (ISQED), is a premier Design & Design Automation conference, aimed at bridging the gap between and integration of: electronic design tools and processes, integrated circuit technologies, processes and manufacturing in order to achieve design quality. ISQED is the pioneer and leading conference dealing with design for manufacturability and quality issues. The conference provides a forum to present and exchange ideas and to promote the research, development, and application of design techniques & methods, design processes, EDA design methodologies and EDA tools that address issues impacting the quality of the realization of designs into physical integrated circuits. ISQED emphasizes a holistic approach toward design quality and highlights and accelerates cooperation among the IC Design, EDA, Semiconductor Process Technology and Manufacturing communities.
ISQED is produced and sponsored by the International Society for Quality Electronic Design.
