Inphi executives highlight importance of high-performance semiconductor solutions for cloud computing

Keynotes at IEF and GSA conferences will highlight the importance of high-performance semiconductor solutions for cloud computing.

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., September 29, 2009 – Two executives from Inphi Corporation, a high-speed analog semiconductor company, will give keynote presentations on cloud computing at major semiconductor industry events sponsored by the International Electronics Forum (IEF) and the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA).

“Even within the semiconductor industry, there’s little recognition of the importance of high-performance semiconductor components to the implementation and evolution of cloud computing, which is emerging as a powerful force that is reshaping the IT industry,” said Young K. Sohn, CEO of Inphi. “Innovations in high-performance semiconductor solutions are enabling key elements of the cloud computing platform – such as server vitalization, core optical networks, connected mobile devices, solid sate disks (SSDs) and security processors – to deliver applications and services with greater security, reliability and energy efficiency.”

Both Inphi keynote addresses will highlight those aspects of cloud computing most dependent on high-performance chips, covering key trends, technologies and growth opportunities for high-performance semiconductor solutions within this exciting and growing market.

Inphi’s CEO, Young K. Sohn, will present at Future Horizon’s 18th International Electronics Forum (IEF) 2009 in Geneva, Switzerland, on October 1. The IEF 2009 event lasts from September 30 to October 2.

Inphi’s senior director of business development, Francis Ho, Ph.D., will present at the one-day GSA Emerging Opportunities Expo & Conference at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif., on October 1 at 1:25 p.m.
