40th Design Automation Conference Features Interactive Learning

3/25/2003 - The Design Automation Conference (DAC), the electronic design industry's leading event, announced the lineup for this year's hands-on tutorials, a key element of the conference's diverse program. With an emphasis on signal and power analysis, these tutorials presented by various DAC exhibitors will be in-depth, interactive sessions that allow attendees to solve specific design challenges through guided hands-on experience using the latest tools and methodologies. DAC will be held June 2-6, 2003, at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, California.

"There's no better way to learn and understand the latest technology and tools than through actual hands-on experience," said Ellen M. Sentovich, 40th DAC tutorial chair and research scientist at Cadence Berkeley Labs. "Because of their overwhelming popularity last year, we have decided to make the hands-on tutorials an ongoing part of our program so that attendees may have the opportunity to experience various aspects of chip design in an interactive manner."

Interactive Learning Focuses on "Signal and Power Integrity Analysis and Methodology"
The topic for this year's hands-on tutorials will be "Signal and Power Integrity Analysis and Methodology." The tutorials will address a wide breadth of power analysis and reduction challenges, from power distribution networks in multi-million gate ICs to signal integrity at multi-gigabit speeds. Other issues to be discussed include, gliching, coupling, noise and electromigration. Each tutorial will focus on a specific design challenge and encourage attendees to work with the tools, hands-on and in real time.

Each three-hour tutorial will be limited to the first 30 enrollees, with a cost of $50 per tutorial.
Student-to-workstation ratios will be 2:1. The seven selected tutorials will take place Monday through Thursday, June 2-5, and include:
