Presentation:  Managing Risk to Field Programmable Gate
Array (FPGA) Integrity and Trust: A Deployment Framework for DoD Instruction 5200.44
Date:               Tuesday, April 1, 2014 at 3:30 p.m. EDT
Location:         Embassy Suites Charleston Hotel, Ballroom C2
Speaker:         Jonathan Graf, Director of Technology

Presentation:   Counterfeit Mitigation by Rapid
Modern Design Retargeting
Date:                Wednesday, April 2, 2014 at 8:30 a.m. EDT
Location:          Embassy Suites Charleston Hotel, Ballroom C2
Speaker:          John Hallman, Senior Hardware Engineer

Overview: Critical components in modern Government electronic systems have short lifecycles when compared to system development and operation. To bridge the gap, automated tools are necessary to efficiently migrate designs into modern devices. This maintains technical superiority for the warfighter and reduces fears of counterfeiting and procurement from the grey market.

GOMACTech is the preeminent conference for the review of developments in microelectronic devices, circuits and applications for government systems. The GOMACTech conference is an Unclassified, Export-Controlled event that requires participants to be U.S. Citizens or legal U.S. Permanent Residents.
