Welcome to DVCon U.S. 2023!

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel San Jose, San Jose, CA, USA

FEBRUARY 27 – MARCH 2, 2023


The Design & Verification Conference & Exhibition is the premier conference on the application of languages, tools, methodologies and standards for the design and verification of electronic systems and integrated circuits. The focus of this highly technical conference is on the practical aspects of these technologies and their use in leading-edge projects to encourage attendees to adopt similar techniques to improve their own design and verification flows.

What Do Farming, Steel, and Space Have in Common?

Abstract: Well, it’s the digital transformation that makes you healthy by eating freshly grown food, takes you to new destinations while relaxing in an autonomous vehicle, and lets you reach for the stars thanks to emission-free space travels.

It may sound too good to be true, but it’s already reality. Digitalization has transformed the everyday: The way we live, communicate, travel, and work. Now it’s time to turn dreams into reality for a better tomorrow. And we know, chips are the heart of today’s digital transformation.

With examples from Space Perspective, 80 Acres Farms, and others, we will show you how the new wave of digitalization is driving huge transformations and can be an inspiration for every industry.

It’s about connecting the real and the digital worlds to help everyone innovate faster and adapt to the world better than ever before by turning complexity into competitive advantage. You dream it – let’s make it together.
