Even as Moore's Law winds down, the processor industry continues to thrive. In the data center, next-generation server processors are now supplemented with a variety of accelerators to offload networking, storage, and deep-learning tasks. Deep learning is also a key technology in the development of ADAS and autonomous-driving systems. Networking equipment is evolving to SDN, NFV, 5G, and other new technologies. And the Internet of Things is quietly gaining traction in both industrial and consumer products. New processor chips and IP cores, along with memory and networking chips, are emerging to support these new applications.

To get the latest information on these new products and trends, mark your calendar for the Linley Spring Processor Conference coming to the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Santa Clara on April 11 - 12.

This two-day event is the only one of its kind focused on the processors and IP cores used in deep learning, embedded, communications, automotive, IoT, and server designs. The Linley Group will open the conference with an overview of the market, technologies, equipment-design, and silicon trends. The second day will start with a keynote from an industry leader to be announced. The remainder of the program will include talks and panel discussions covering a broad range of topics, here is a list of outstanding presentations:
