As a chair(wo)man for the AMS track at DesignCon (yes I know, you heard it before ), I just want to inform you that the call for abstracts is now open for DesignCon 2013:
You have until August 17,2012 to submit your abstract. In order to get innovative content, our AMS technical committee selected a large range of topics representative of actual and upcoming challenges faced by AMS engineers (I have included this list below). You can submit your abstract using the above link.
Feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions, we look forward to reviewing your abstracts.
You can find some related information to last year tutorial and event at:
I am also working on a tutorial and panel focusing on Mixed Signal Verification, more to come later…
Analog, RF, and Mixed-Signal Design and Verification sample topics
Design & verification methodologies
Simulation algorithms and techniques
Mixed-signal behavioral modeling approaches
Verilog-A, Verilog-AMS, VHDL-AMS, SystemVerilog, SystemC-AMS, etc.
