Cadence Technology Users to Learn and Exchange the Latest Electronic Design Ideas
(Nanowerk News) Cadence Design Systems, Inc., a leader in global electronic design innovation, launches its annual series of technical conferences with CDNLive! EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) to be held in Munich, Germany, May 18-20. It is the first of six scheduled worldwide user conferences taking place this year; the others to be held in Japan, Taiwan, Israel, USA, and India. These events bring together thousands of Cadence® technology users, developers, and industry experts to examine challenges and synthesize solutions to help develop innovative electronic designs.
The EMEA conference will feature a keynote presentation by Cadence president and CEO Lip-Bu Tan. During the three-day conference, attendees will be able to attend a wide range of product demonstrations and techtorials, with the opportunity to review dozens of user-authored papers. The comprehensive technical agenda encompasses technology areas including low-power design, formal verification, constraint-driven design, system-in-package design, mixed-signal design, and electronic system-level design.
"Looking at the number of delegates returning every year, CDNLive! EMEA has become a must-attend event for our users," said Wolfgang Stronski, marketing director of Cadence EMEA. "The EMEA region is a hotbed of design talent, and this conference provides an excellent forum where users can freely exchange ideas and address critical design challenges with their peers. It's also a great networking opportunity."
To supplement this year's technical conference, Cadence has organized and sponsored the first full-custom design competition. For this unique contest, more than 50 top layout designers from leading academic institutions throughout EMEA have submitted entries for the "Cadence Fastest Full-Custom Layout Designer of the Year Award." The winner will be announced during the conference.
In addition to the keynotes and user-presented technical papers, attendees can visit more than 15 companies exhibiting at the Designer Expo.
