Synopsys, Inc. Announces Technical Seminar Series Featuring Mixed-Signal, Functional Verification, and Implementation Solutions
Synopsys, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNPS), the world leader in semiconductor design
software, today announced the commencement of its annual technical
seminar series. From RTL to silicon, Synopsys provides solutions to the
most difficult challenges that confront engineers who are pushing
electronic design to the limit.
WHAT: The Synopsys 2004 Seminar Series is a forum for members of the
electronic design community to get the most recent information on design
automation products, methodologies and processes. Intended for designers,
developers, verification engineers and managers, these free in-depth
technical sessions discuss the latest technological advances and future
trends of Synopsys' leading EDA tools and solutions for mixed-signal
design, functional verification and implementation.
Synopsys 2004 Seminar Series includes:
The AMS seminars offer customers the opportunity to learn about Synopsys'
AMS design environment beginning with the Cosmos™ design cockpit and
its integration with simulation solutions. The Discovery™ AMS solution
demonstration, built around industry-leading golden simulators: VCS™,
NanoSim™, and HSPICE®, will show attendees how to achieve the high
verification throughput needed for AMS SoC designs. An efficient,
high-quality post-layout simulation flow that combines the strengths of
NanoSim and Star-RCXT™, Synopsys' parasitic extraction tool, is also
covered. In addition, the Design Optimization section will explore
exciting new technology that allows designers to quickly converge to an
optimal circuit solution, offering significant productivity gains.
As verification challenges continue to grow faster than chip complexity,
new methodologies must be used to ensure first-pass silicon success.
Synopsys' functional verification seminars will feature an advanced
methodology developed by industry expert Janick Bergeron, moderator of
Verification Guild and a Synopsys principal R&D engineer, that addresses
the immense challenge of verifying today's complex designs. Attendees
will learn how to architect a scalable, reusable verification environment
that takes advantage of the latest advances in constrained-random and
design-for-verification solutions to maximize productivity. Janick
Bergeron will be a guest speaker at various worldwide locations.
The challenges of chip design continue to increase; therefore the need
for an implementation platform that is comprised of best-in-class tools
is more critical to design success than ever before. The Implementation
seminars are offered in two topic areas covering logical design and
physical design. Attendees will receive useful design tips from the
latest software releases that they can apply immediately for better
management of their complex designs, improved productivity and best
