The hotel has agreed to extend the deadline for room reservation (with the FPGA-forum rates) until January 28. The registration deadline is extended to the same date.
- Full schedule with tracks and sessions
- All titles and abstracts
Some minor modifications must be expected.
Cost driven development of a humanoid robot for mass production
In a domain where you typically either deliver sub components or integrate them, we take a holistic approach to developing a highly complex mechatronics system for mass production.
(The other closing keynote will be held by 3d-Radar)
There and Back again
Egil Eide, founder of 3d-Radar and associate professor at NTNU Department of Electronic Systems tells the story about 3d-Radar AS from the startup in 2001, the growth phase and acquisition by Curtiss-Wright and Chemring around 2010, to the re-acquisiton by the founders in 2018.
3d-Radar manufactures advanced ground penetrating radars for mapping underground utility structures and subsurface infrastructure. From being literally under the radar for several years, 3d-Radar’s products have now become well recognized as a standard tool for the growing market for highway and bridge deck inspection.
The other closing keynote will be published soon
A first preliminary program is released with most presentations and exhibitors included. See under Program.
Registration is now open for all participants. ***Here***
Exhibitors: Please note that you should also notify the committe (contact@fpga-forum) that you would like to participate in the exhibition.

Ted Speers, Head of Product Architecture and Planning, Technical Fellow at Microchip Technology Inc., has promised a ‘thought provoking, historical and interesting’ opening keynote at FPGA-forum 2019.
A useful way to look at a computer system is to view it an organism comprised of nerve endings (devices, sensors and actuators), nerves (gateways and transport) and the brain (data centers and the cloud). We’ve gone through at least three major stages of evolution of this organism, starting with telephony and moving to computing and then mobile. In this talk, we’ll review how this system has evolved, how value was captured at each stage of evolution and project how this system is poised to evolve in the post Moore’s Law era and the role that the RISC-V ISA will play in that evolution.
Maybe we will also hear something about the acquisition of Microsemi?
Ted Speers is head of product architecture and planning for the programable solutions business unit at Microsemi, a wholly owned subsidiary of Microchip Technology, where he is responsible for defining the roadmap for low power, secure, reliable FPGAs and SoC FPGAs. He joined Microsemi in 1987 and held roles in process engineering and product engineering before assuming his current role in 2003. Ted is a Technical Fellow and co-inventor on 35 U.S. patents. Prior to joining Microsemi, he worked at LSI Logic. He has a Bachelor of Science in chemical engineering from Cornell University. Ted has been a member of the RISC-V Foundation Board of Directors since its inception in 2016.
Call for presentations, exhibition and workshops has just been added here
FPGA-forum 2019 will be arranged at Royal Garden in Trondheim February 13-14 (Wedn-Thur)
(Workshops will be arranged February 12)
Craig Davis will do the Opening Keynote.
Craig is the Senior Product Marketing Manager for High-end and mid-range FPGAs at Intel PSG, and as such probably just the right person for an opening keynote at FPGA-forum.
