SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Aug. 31, 2006 - Sequence Design’s Jerry Frenkil, CTO, Vice President and General Manager, Silicon Business Unit, will join a panel of experts addressing “EDA Challenges for Complex SoC and ASIC Designs” at the upcoming International SoC Conference & Exhibit, Nov. 1-2 in Newport Beach, Calif.

The panel, moderated by EE Times’ Dave Bursky, will examine the EDA community’s plans to provide technologies needed to deal with complex silicon at 65nm and below. Frenkil, an authority on low-power design, will focus upon how power impacts the overall design flow, from system design through final signoff, including EDA’s role in addressing power and its effects upon timing, SI, and reliability.

Frenkil was one of the founders of Sente, Inc. and has over 25 years of experience in the semiconductor and EDA industries. While at Sente, he served as Vice President of Low Power Design and led the services and applications activities. Prior to co-founding Sente, Frenkil was an independent consultant focused on IC design. He also held the positions of Design Manager at VLSI Technology and Engineering Manager at Mostek. Frenkil holds a BS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas, has published numerous papers on IC and Low-Power Design, and holds several patents on circuit design and design automation.
