Title: Connecting Improved Life to New Age Transistors

Abstract:The historical growth of IC computing power has profoundly changed the way we create, process, communicate, and store information. Semiconductor advances have given us the ability to build ever more powerful electronics-based systems to interact in a greatly enhanced manner with the surrounding physical world. The classic challenge of tradeoff between performance and power in a given form factor forcing us to redesign our practical life use cases. This in turn is creating a new era of thin client based intelligent devices backed up with intelligent edge, cloud and superior low latency, highly available connectivity. Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) methodology and manufacturing process has grown rapidly in the last few decades enabling us to design and encapsulate billions of transistors in single mammoth chips. In this talk we will focus on how new age of connectivity is enabling us various life changing experiences which in turn making our life better and smarter. The designing of such technologies starts with high level system design and end in creating cutting edge SoC with complex software system. In this talk we will try to connect both and focus on practical challenges to realize new age smart systems.

Bio:Sumit Goswami is a known expert in VLSI industry. His experience varied from SoC VLSI design and design methodologies, post silicon testing to chipset commercialization. Sumit is currently driving EDA TFM team in Qualcomm chartered to deliver tools/flows/methods covering from transistor level to system level requirements. With strong handshake with WW EDA companies, cutting edge fabs in the world this team is delivering complex solution to implement Qualcomm next generation protocols and architectures in lowest FinFET process nodes. Before driving TFM team Sumit served various portfolio in Qualcomm like high end CPU/GPU implementation, post silicon operations, PMIC and RF design and chipset commercialization. Before joining Qualcomm he was involved in various portion of VLSI design process involving design methodology, execution, memory design, structured data path design, RTL/Validation methodologies in Intel and Synopsys. In his career Sumit has taped out 50+ SoCs powering smartphone, IoTs, server, client CPU for laptop/desktop and integrated graphics. Sumit authored several papers in various prestigious conferences. Most recently he was General Chair for VLSI Design Conference, 2020.
