IC integrity verification is a major focus at recent and upcoming industry virtual conferences.
We’re six months into the pandemic, and it looks like in-person conferences are becoming a distant memory and that virtual conferences are now becoming routine. It used to be that traveling to a conference (sometimes long distances) was the only way to be able to attend technical presentations and learn about the latest technologies and methodologies, and that was only if you received permission from your boss to attend. Travel isn’t cheap and taking extended time away from the office meant that you weren’t spending that time on engineering your company’s products. You were also forced to remember the information or download the PDFs of the proceeding that you could reference.
