CHICAGO, Oct. 28, 2004 -- DesignCon East 2005, the conference and technology exhibition for electronic-design and semiconductor engineers, will be held Sept. 13-15, 2005 near Boston.

The International Engineering Consortium (IEC), the conference presenter, announced that the third DesignCon East will be held at the Holiday Inn Boxborough Woods, in Boxborough, Mass. The 2004 DesignCon East was held at the same site.

One new twist this year is the date. The first two DesignCon East events were held in the spring. After consulting with industry leaders and engineers who said they would be better accommodated by a fall conference, however, the IEC changed it.

"The basis of DesignCon East's success is that it is an educational conference for engineers designed by engineers," IEC senior director John Janowiak said. "Just as we seek the guidance of leading engineers on topics for the conference, we also listen closely to the industry on matters such as the timing of the event. When they said fall worked better, we listened."

Like last year's conference, DesignCon East will focus on providing solutions that engineers can implement immediately in their designs. The educational program will feature presentations of more than 30 technical papers in areas such as IC design and test, board and system-level design, FPGA and structured ASIC design, power and packaging, functional verification, high-speed interconnect, and RF and mixed-signal system design.

In addition to the technical papers, the conference will feature keynote addresses from industry leaders, plenary panels, and a technology exhibition. For more information about the 2005 DesignCon East, visit www.designcon.com/east.

The International Engineering Consortium (www.iec.org) is a non-profit organization dedicated to catalyzing progress in high-technology industries and their university communities. Founded in 1944, the IEC is affiliated with over 300 universities and is headquartered in Chicago.
