SAN JOSE, CA – March 13, 2017 – VOICE, the annual developer conference hosted by leading semiconductor test equipment supplier Advantest Corporation (TSE: 6857), will offer three diverse keynote addresses ranging from future trends to cyber security to the global semiconductor industry. VOICE U.S. -- May 16-17 in Palm Springs, California at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa -- will include two keynote speakers, one who not only worked for the FBI, but also helped take down some of the largest cyber criminals in history. In Shanghai, China on May 26, the keynote speaker will discuss the global semiconductor industry and market within China.
The Palm Springs event's opening day will feature a talk by Advantest's own Hans-Juergen Wagner, senior vice president of the SoC Product Group, who will discuss "Future Trends for and Contributions of Test in the SoC Market." Wagner will detail the drivers, challenges and emerging trends of SoC device designs and the impact they have on test. The second day's keynote speaker, Chris Tarbell, will present a fast-paced keynote address on hacking and the dark net. Tarbell is one of the most successful cyber security law enforcement officials of all time. He is the man responsible for infiltrating the hacker group Anonymous and taking down the notorious dark web drug trafficking site Silk Road, called "the most sophisticated and extensive criminal marketplace on the Internet." Tarbell's stories contain sensitive information that can only be heard in person.
The VOICE China keynote speaker will be Dr. Peter Chen, senior director, China Business Development, TSMC China Company Limited. Dr. Chen will share his insights into the global semiconductor industry landscape, technology trends, and especially the ecosystem and market in China.
