I am honored to be the chairman of the DVCon China again. On behalf of the whole steering committee, we welcome all the old and new friends to join us. As a platform focus on technology, we’d like to bring you latest update from the industry, new ideas and new practices from engineers all over the country.
In 2021, DVCon China got another record of participants. People were shocked by how hot the industry was. Most of my friends were busy on their chip tapeouts or publishing their new EDA tools. Unfortunately, we see some ebb and flow of industry these days. But why not take it as an opportunity to review our work, are you really doing something cool or just homogenous work?
I think people won’t be that surprised if some paper in this year is under help of chatGPT. These days AI really gives us a headsup, and we need to rescue our engineers from chores and focus on key technology. There is no doubt that AI will generate most of the code instead of us one day. Hopefully he still needs to follow our instructions until he can create something new like UVM/PSS/formal by himself. So, what is our competence compared to machines? I think creativity is on top of the list. We keep finding smart ways to improve our efficiency and quality, no matter based on current tools and methodologies, or our customize solutions. Keep thinking, and each of your interesting idea may become a standard or direction followed by everyone. Then let chatGPT write the code.
We’re going to have many topics in DVCon China. We will invite experts from the industry to share the hottest trends. We also encourage you to step on the stage and share your intelligence with us.
Looking forward to meeting you in Shanghai!
