DVCon China is the premier conference on the application of languages, tools, and methodologies for the design and verification of electronic systems and integrated circuits. The focus of the conference is the usage of specialized design and verification languages such as Verilog, SystemVerilog, VHDL, PSL, SystemC and e, as well as general purpose languages such as C, C++, PERL, Tcl, and Python. Tools and methodologies include the use of testbench automation, portable stimulus, hardware-assisted verification, hardware/software co-verification, assertion-based  and  formal verification, transaction-level system design, high level synthesis, low power design techniques, 3D chip designs, IP based SoC design methods, reference flows and AMS design.

DVCon China is looking for short workshops to encourage greater sponsorship participation from companies and exhibitors, especially smaller organizations at an affordable level.

DVCon China is looking for short workshop topics that are current, have a high level of interest and offer strong continuing educational content. 

Short Workshop sponsors reach a captive audience during the 60-minute educational sessions and have the opportunity to follow-up with attendees during breaks, at the exhibits, and following the event.

DVCon is a highly-targeted venue for engineers addressing major design and verification issues. 


Sponsorship Includes:

  • A 45 minute Short Workshop presentation
  • Short Workshop content will be publicized via monthly newsletters, DVCon website, Conference Program and in the Opening Session
  • Other promotion items like banners, flyers, gift items, etc may be distributed during the Short Workshop

For more information concerning the conference, please contact the conference management, Jackie McIntosh at jackie@mpassociates.com
