User2User 2005 will offer attendees the opportunity to interact directly with other Mentor tool users, technology experts, partners and tools. It will feature approximately 170 technical presentations, many by users from companies and government agencies such as NASA, Sun, Motorola, Nokia, Mitsubishi, Samsung, Lucent and Freescale. User2User 2005 technology tracks will include mixed-signal design, custom integrated circuit (IC) design, printed circuit board (PCB) design, design-for-test (DFT), emulation, field programmable gate array (FPGA) design, hardware/software co-verification, high-speed design, nanometer design and verification, simulation and design environment.
The two keynotes focus on pioneering designs that enhance our ability to travel in various environments, including space. A gifted engineer, adventurer and entrepreneur, Rutan also designed the record-breaking Voyager -- the first airplane to circle the world non-stop without refueling. Similarly, Sander is known for heading the development of the next-generation Mars Lander, which will contain increased payload and have the ability to operate on the surface of Mars for several years. By contrast, Savage and Hyneman specialize in designing methods and experiments that they use to prove or disprove widely held beliefs. The duo will discuss the origins of the show, share a blooper reel and conduct several live demonstrations.
