|July 27, 2018 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: Synopsys hosted its 19th annual Synopsys Users Group (SNUG) conference earlier this month in Bengaluru, India.  SNUG India is part of a global Synopsys program that began in 1991 to provide users of Synopsys design tools, IP, and technology with an open forum in which they can exchange ideas, discuss problems, and explore solutions.

The event has become the industry’s premier gathering of semiconductor professionals in the region for sharing best practices and methodologies in semiconductor design. SNUG India 2018 featured more than 70 user papers and presentations on design synthesis, low-power implementation and verification, test, mixed-signal verification, IP integration, emulation, virtual prototyping, and FPGA-based prototyping.

The two-day conference focuses on helping engineers better address productivity challenges when designing chips and electronic systems. This year’s event featured new electronic design automation (EDA) solutions and techniques to meet the challenges posed by 5-nanometer technology nodes and below.



Dr. Aart de Geus, chairman and co-chief executive officer at Synopsys, said, Tthe silicon has arrived at a state that is now making software possible that we only could dream of years ago and decades ago we couldn’t even fathom would ever exist.”

“All market segments are digitizing themselves, and the semiconductor ecosystem is at the center of making this happen. This transformation is changing and challenging the semiconductor industry as we evolve into a world of Smart Everything that is networked, mobile, and also under increased pressure to become more secure,” added he.

Dr. Pradip K. Dutta, group vice president and managing director of Synopsys India and Sri Lanka, said, “As the semiconductor industry and the ecosystem evolve with the accelerating pace of digital transformation, the center of gravity is moving to the intersection of hardware and software.”

Pradeep Elamanchili, Vice President, global ASIC engineering, Western Digital said, “Today, enterprises are seeing exponential increase in volume, variety, and longevity of Big and Fast Data. Machine Learning and AI rely on this data to capture customers’ attention and thereby the market share.”

The conference saw the participation of various industry ecosystem partners, including Arm, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, Samsung, and TSMC.
