What are the global trends for the IC design community, what are the opportunities and challenges now and in the future?

BCSEMI NL would like to invite you to the event: “New Perspectives for the IC design community”.

This event will give you insights into new developments in the IC design world, but also give you the opportunity to indicate what your challenges and needs are on topics such as IP protection, tooling needs and internationalisation. BCSEMI NL will use this input to further improve her services specifically for the Design Community.

During the event there will also be an opportunity (during breaks) for companies and institutes to exhibit. If you would like to exhibit please send an email to
