CDNLive! Silicon Valley, the Cadence user conference for the U.S., is set for San Jose, California March 13-14 at the DoubleTree Hotel. An agenda and registration information are now available on line, and there's a special "early bird" $99 registration deal if you sign up before January 27.
So why attend CDNLive!? Because whatever design and verification work you do, CDNLive! Silicon Valley will help you do it better. This year's conference features over 60 papers that detail user experiences and offer helpful design tips. It also includes interactive "techtorials," a keynote speaker to be identified later, and a Designer Expo showcasing a number of partner providers. There will be many opportunities for networking with peers.
The first day of the conference, Tuesday March 13, features 40 papers divided into 8 tracks, including mixed-signal/low power, custom, verification, SoC/IP, system/software, system verification, and high performance. Of these papers, 32 will be given by user companies or ecosystem partners, and 8 by Cadence. Detailed abstracts for most of these papers are available on line. The day will end with a partner reception and expo.
Wednesday, March 14 is a longer day with 52 papers, of which 34 come from users or partners. Wednesday's tracks are mixed-signal/low power, custom, verification, PCB, system/software, system verification, and "special topics."
