Highlights of CDNLive Silicon Valley 2016

Technical Sessions: This year’s conference featured more than 125 presentations from 12 different technical tracks, including a wide variety of user-authored papers addressing all aspects of design and IP creation, integration, and verification. Designers discovered how others are using Cadence technologies and techniques to design silicon, SoCs, and systems efficiently and profitably.

Keynote speakers: Lip-Bu Tan (Cadence President and Chief Executive Officer), Steve Mollenkopf (Qualcomm Chief Executive Officer), Sanjay Jha (GLOBALFOUNDRIES Chief Executive Officer), and Tom Beckley (Cadence Senior Vice President and General Manager, Custom IC and PCB Group) each presented engaging, insightful talks on industry trends, challenges, and opportunities in electronic design.
