Cadence Mixed-Signal Design Summit

Cadence Design Systems will host the Mixed-Signal Design Summit on October 27, 2009 from 8:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. Pacific time. The event will take place at Cadence Design Systems (2655 Seely Ave., San Jose, Calif. 95134) in Building 10 R&D Auditorium. Engineers and executives from Cadence Design Systems and leading semiconductor firms are meeting in an open forum to discuss the challenges of mixed-signal design methodologies. Attendees are invited to hear a keynote by Paul Emerson of Texas Instruments, listen to fellow designers discuss methodologies they followed to tackle mixed-signal design obstacles, watch live technical product demonstrations, and ask questions in an informal setting. An am:azon Kindle ebook reader will be given away during the design summit.
