Trusted Suppliers Industry Session
Monday, 20 March 2017, 8:30am - 5:00pm
Grand Sierra Resort, Reno, NV, Grand Ballroom
Harry Kellzi, Teledyne

The 8th Trusted Supplier Industry Day at GOMACTech 2017 is shaping up to be an interesting event! We start with a keynote by Scott Howitt, Senior VP and CISO for MGM Resorts, that will introduce supply chain security measures used in the casino industry. The gaming (or casino) industry has long been a leader in product integrity and supply chain security efforts but has only recently shared their mitigation approaches outside their industry. We look forward to hearing new perspectives from Mr. Howitt.

Much of the day will be scheduled to hear the final reports from the NDIA Trusted Microelectronics Joint Working Group (TM JWG). This group, consisting of four teams and 78 participants from government and industry, has been working since last May to address the microelectronics issues that could impact the Department of Defense’s ability to sustain its military technical advantage. You can learn more about the TM JWG here: http://www.ndia.org/divisions/working-groups/tmejwg

Following the TM JWG reports, panelists from government and industry will put the teams’ findings into a broader context by discussing how this work can be used to develop trusted and trustable microelectronics strategies for critical government systems.

This industry day is organized by the Trusted Suppliers Steering Group and Harry Kellzi from Teledyne will be moderating the event. Please join us for our eighth Industry Day and stay up-to-date on trusted microelectronics initiatives!

Keynote Address (Tuesday, 21 March, 8:30am – 9:45am)
The Secret of Success: Roadmap, Research, Prototyping and Manufacturing

Paolo A. Gargini, Chairman IRDS, IEEE Fellow, JSAP Fellow Former: Director of Technology Strategy and
Intel Fellow

Most problems, inflection points and possible solutions enabling the success of the Electronic Industry were identified for the past 20 years by means of a 15-year roadmap spanning form basic process steps to devices and systems. This was the function of ITRS until 2015 and it is now the function of IRDS. Focused research on possible solutions conducted for the subsequent 10 years by universities and national laboratories consistently identified the most viable solutions. Within a 5-year time span industrial type consortia built prototypes that allowed selection of the winning solutions. Leading IDM, Foundries and System Companies quickly and reliably inserted these solutions into manufacturing. This was the secret of success for the past 20 years but so much has changed nowadays! Can this type of formula still apply in the future or should it be modified and how? Come, listen to the secret and learn how to be an integral part of future successes.
