As a leader in mixed-signal design, Cadence recognizes the mission-critical
urgency and growing significance of mixed-signal design in the development
of today's complex, large-scale semiconductor designs.

Engineers and executives from Cadence Design Systems, Inc. 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.
