Synopsys user group (SNUG) meetings will be held in three European venues later this month.
The user meetings will kick off in Munich on Tuesday 14 May with a wide range of conference sessions, covering, among other things, front and back-end implementation issues, systems design, verification (both digital and analog and mixed-signal) and ‘vision’ sessions addressing emerging topics.
Among the user presentations are sessions on overcoming lithographic issues in GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ 20nm reference flow, and a separate session covering the impact of double patterning on parasitic extraction, also from GLOBALFOUNDRIES. A team from Intel Mobile Communications will talk about choosing and validating high speed interface IP, while a presentation from STMicroelectronics on reducing IR drop and electromigration effects in full-custom analog designs.
SNUG arrives in Reading on Thursday 16 May, with a slightly different mix of sessions, and user presentations from companies such as ARM, on power gating in high-performance mobile SoCs, and CSR, on full-custom layout automation.
