Cadence is hosting its annual CDNLive! Silicon Valley technology user conference in San Jose, CA on March 13-14, 2012.

Whatever your design specialty, this event is an excellent opportunity to network, share best practices on critical design and verification issues, and discover new techniques for realizing advanced silicon, SoCs, and systems. And perhaps most importantly, you’ll have the chance to talk directly with the Cadence technologists who develop your tools. Take this chance to tell your story and submit an abstract for consideration at the 2012 conference. If your abstract is accepted, you’ll gain free admittance to the conference. Share your experiences and insights on key technical and industry issues.
