ANNOUNCES 2006 BEST PAPER AWARDS
design for quality conference recognizes innovations in design for quality,
manufacturing, yield, and reliability
SAN JOSE, Calif. - March 28, 2006 -
The International Society for Quality Electronic Design (ISQED.org) today
announced four winners of the best paper awards at the ISQED ‘06 conference
held March 27 - 29, 2006 in San Jose, California.
ISQED best papers are selected and voted upon by a select committee
composed of senior technologists from the electronic design automation (EDA),
integrated circuit (IC) design, and semiconductor manufacturing communities.

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.
