This year’s San Jose edition of Mentor Graphics’ User2User technical conference takes place on Tuesday, April 21st at the Doubletree Hotel. Registration is open for this free-of-charge user conference.
Alongside a raft of user presentations and demos (click here for the latest agenda), this year’s keynotes both address the growing importance of the Internet of Things.
Mentor Chairman and CEO Wally Rhines will discuss the IoT’s security challenges, while Karim Arabi, VP of Engineering at Qualcomm, will consider the key architectural trends now driving both the IoT and mobile computing markets.
The day-long conference features user presentations from companies such as Altera, Broadcom, Cisco Systems, Cypress Semiconductors, Intel, Marvell, Microsoft, ONSemiconductor, Oracle and Xilinx.
Papers are organized in nine tracks: Two on Calibre; two on Functional Verification (one covers emulation, the second other verfication and simulation technologies); AMS Verification; IC Design Implementation; Silicon Test & Yield Analysis; Thermal Simulation & Measurement; and PCB.
The Silicon Valley edition also features a foundry-focused panel session, and as ever will close with a networking session.
