The Irish Signals and Systems Conference 2011 is sponsored by:

Analog Devices, Inc. defines innovation and excellence in signal processing. ADI's analog, mixed-signal, and digital signal processing (DSP) integrated circuits (IC) play a fundamental role in converting, conditioning, and processing real-world phenomena such as light, sound, temperature, motion, and pressure into electrical signals to be used in a wide array of electronic equipment. But that doesn't begin to capture the essence of what Analog Devices does for our customers, and ultimately for the end user.

Cypress delivers high-performance, mixed-signal, programmable solutions that provide customers with rapid time-to-market and exceptional system value. Cypress offerings include the PSoC® Programmable System-on-ChipTM, USB controllers, general-purpose programmable clocks and memories. Cypress also offers wired and wireless connectivity solutions ranging from its WirelessUSBTM radio system-on-chip, to West BridgeTM and EZ-USB® FX2LP controllers that enhance connectivity and performance in multimedia handsets. Cypress serves numerous markets including consumer, computation, data communications, automotive, industrial, and solar power.

IMEX

From start-up in 1970, IMEX has offered our customers a solution based approach to instrumentation problems. We feel that this type of service can only be provided by a team of technically competent field engineers visiting, demonstrating and, where appropriate, arranging seminars and presentations of new products. Aside from instrumentation solutions, IMEX continues to produce and supply the education sector, such as our Embedded System Tools, Tektronix range, Feedback Engineering Labs and Bluetooth Interactive Whiteboards.

Midas

MIDAS Ireland (Microelectronic Industry Design Association) is a joint industry and academic organisation which defines and develops the future direction of Integrated Circuit design in Ireland. It is a national cluster consisting of the microelectronics design companies and third level institutions in Ireland, building on the already-strong relationships between them.

Movidius is a fabless semiconductor company whose technology provides unique video editing and post production capabilities for the creation of User Generated Content for mobile social networking. Movidius's video processor hardware and application software is specifically designed to suit low power mobile phone and consumer electronics, enabling handset manufacturers to create highly differentiated products and enhanced user experiences.

Xilinx leads the Programmable Logic Device (PLD) market, which features a technology called the field programmable gate array (FPGA) that our company pioneered in 1984. Xilinx supplies customers with "off-the-shelf" logic devices that customers can program to perform specific functions using the development tools. This programmability provides a revolutionary alternative to fixed or custom logic devices that typically require many months to design, test, and manufacture.

The IET is one of the world's leading professional societies for the engineering and technology community, with more than 150,000 members in 127 countries and offices in Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific. The IET provides a global knowledge network to facilitate the exchange of ideas and promote the positive role of science, engineering and technology in the world.

The IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) has gone through many transformations over the past few years. The UKRI chapter endeavours to support the UKRI Computational Intelligence researchers by bringing information and news about this exciting and progressing research field which includes innovations in neural networks, fuzzy logic and evolutionary computation and applications of these technologies in signal and systems R&D. The CIS UKRI chapter aims to develop the society, for the betterment of Computational Intelligence research in the UK and ROI and, in particular, to organize and support meetings/workshops/conferences, such as the Irish Signals and Systems Conference.

The Science Gallery is a world first. A new type of venue where today's white-hot scientific issues are thrashed out and you can have your say. A place where ideas meet and opinions collide.



Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) is the national foundation for investment in scientific and engineering research. SFI invests in academic researchers and research teams who are most likely to generate new knowledge, leading edge technologies and competitive enterprises in the three broad areas of Biotechnology; Information & Communications Technology (ICT) and Sustainable Energy & Energy Efficient Technologies (Energy).
