  SEMINARS AND WORKSHOPS

National Workshop On Intellectual Property Rights in Semiconductor Chips

Intellectual Property (IP) has become a key driver for R&D in Science and Technology, that dominate the knowledge society of 21st century.  Seamless commerce and Globalization concepts have brought the Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) to the fore giving a major focus to IP as a strategic asset.  IP Rights (IPR) has thus become a currency of power widely sought to protect inventions and new ideas.  Recognizing the central role IPs play in the modern technology products and services, countries around globe have drawn legal frameworks for enabling registration of the IPRs.  The two-day workshop was held during July 12 - 14, 2006 in association with IEEE India, EDS Chapter and MHRD.

 

This workshop was specifically on the IP protection regimes in Semiconductor Chips and Products.

Highlights

The workshop covered an overall understanding of basic concepts of IP, National and international IPR regimes, Indian legislation on chip protection and its features, techno-legal issues in Chip protection, industrial Experiences in Chip acts in select countries, legal issues in filing IPR applications, Indian IC Design experiences in R&D and industry, Korean experiences in IC Design education etc.  The Workshop was inaugurated by Dr. K..S. Chari, Senior Director and Registrar Semiconductor Integrated Circuits Layout Design Registry, Department of Information Technology, Government of India, New Delhi.

 

Dr. Ramakrishna, Professor, National Law School, Bangalore spoke about the Intellectual Property Rights and the laws governing this.  Dr. S. Karthik, MD, Analog Devices, Bangalore spoke on IPR in semiconductor - an industrial perspective.  He shared his thoughts on semiconductor industry IC design overview.  Dr. Young Yu, President & CEO, seloco, Inc., Korea gave a lecture on Korean Experiences Chip Act in Korea.  He focused on Korean Semiconductor layout and protection, Korea IP plan progress, system integration and IP Authoring Center (SIPAC), its mission, activities, IP exchange and management system, several IP business methods, possible cooperation between Korea and India.  Prof. K.S. Vijayaraghavan, Dean, School of Management delivered a speech on IP management and Licensing.  A panel discussion on VLSI design education and IP awareness covered case studies from India and Korea.

 

National Seminar on Embedded Systems

Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) is a much-touted Technology today enabling data to be transmitted by a tiny portable device, called tag, which is read by a RFID reader and processed according to the needs of a particular application.  The development of RFID systems
