1st Nanometer Circuit Verification Forum
September 23rd, 2011 by Graham Bell
The 1st Nanometer Circuit Verification Forum took place on Thursday, Sept. 22 at the TechMart in Santa Clara. Hosted by Berkeley Design Automation, the forum presented user experiences with verification of new nm high-performance analog/mixed-signal designs. The keynote was by Jim Hogan and over 100 were in attendance. BDA’s Analog Fast Spice product is making a big impact for design teams who need answers faster but cannot sacrifice accuracy.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Ravi Subramanian, CEO of Berkeley who gave his summary of the event in an audio interview (click here).
One of the most often heard questions at the event was “Will there be another Forum in the future”? Because of the very positive response by the attendees to the forum’s sharing of real experiences, the answer is a resounding ‘yes’. And there may be Forum’s held in other locations world-wide.
At the end of the forum was a reception, where I took photos. You can see the gallery below
