EDA360 Tech on Tour: Silicon Realization / Mixed-Signal R&D

24 Feb 2011 - 24 Feb 2011  
Austin, TX - February 23
Irvine, CA - February 24

Virtually all modern IC and SoC designs are mixed signal. Most systems have to interface their millions of gates, DSPs, memories, and processors to the real world through one or more analog or mixed-signal subsystems such as a display, an antenna, a sensor, a cable, or an RF interface. Successfully taping out a mixed-signal design on schedule with the lowest power consumption and within budget is becoming more and more challenging as the mixed-signal designs become bigger and more complex.

In this full-day technical seminar, you’ll learn best practices and gain valuable insights from Cadence mixed-signal R&D experts on how to realize today’s highly integrated and complex mixed-signal designs more productively and profitably. You’ll also hear case studies of how design teams are successfully using Cadence mixed-signal solutions to achieve their tape-out goals, optimize performance and power, reduce costs, improve turnaround time and mitigate chip functionality and quality risks.

Discover the latest mixed-signal technologies and methodologies from Cadence Silicon Realization EDA solutions, such as:
  • Developing AMS behavioral and real number models
  • Power-aware mixed-signal simulation
  • Metric-driven SoC verification
  • Interoperability between analog and digital implementation platforms
  • Concurrent floorplanning and block design methodologies
You’ll also have a chance to network and discuss your mixed-signal challenges with Cadence experts, customers, and other attendees.
  • Analog/mixed-signal design engineers and layout designers
  • Analog/mixed-signal IP developers
  • Mixed-signal verification and digital implementation engineers
  • SoC integration and verification engineers
  • Engineering managers and executives
  • Anyone working on or considering advanced node SoC design projects
  • Those seeking technical expertise and examples of production-proven mixed-signal methodologies in use today
What will you gain?
  • Explore your options for implementing an integrated, interoperable mixed-signal solution that increases throughput, reduces risk, and improves design quality
  • Hear recommendations based on proven silicon successes and learn how to effectively deploy new methodologies in your design environment today
