With the theme of Connect, Share and Inspire, this year's CDNLive! Silicon Valley March 13-14, 2012 will be an exciting forum for Cadence customers to share their most recent chip design successes and learn from each other. Among close to 100 presentations during the packed two day agenda, one area stands out is mixed-signal design. There are more than 10 presentations with specific focuses on mixed-signal design challenges, and how Cadence tools and flows were used to solve those challenges. Here is a list of related papers in different categories with a list of keywords to highlight the technical contents:
