Who: Nassda Corp. (NASDAQ: NSDA) announced today that Graham Bell, senior director of marketing, will participate as a panelist at the Design Automation and Test in Europe (DATE) 2005 Conference. What: Mixed-Signal Issues in SoC Designs: Looming Crisis or Innovation Opportunity? Currently, Analog and mixed-signal components in an SoC design comprise only a small percentage of the total number of transistors, yet consumes a major portion of the development and verification time. With the continuing momentum to every smaller process nodes, how will analog and mixed/signal design change to meet the challenges of smaller supply voltages and resultant increased sensitivity to signal noise and power-supply noise, as well as more variability in circuit performance to manufacturing tolerances such as lithographic and parametric effects across both die and wafer? What new design and verification strategies are needed to make design more successful, and improve productivity of design teams? Will incremental changes be sufficient or will entirely new approaches be needed? Who: The following are the panelists: Moderator: Roland Ackermann Josef Sauerer, Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft Rainer Holzhaider, austriamicrosystems Frank Schenkel, MUNeda Tony Strachan, Philips Marius Sida, Mentor Graphics Graham Bell, Nassda Mr. Bell joined Nassda in early 2001 from Averant, Inc. where he was co-founder and headed marketing. He has 20 years of EDA experience and has held key marketing positions at Synopsys, Viewlogic Systems, Avista Design Systems and MicroSim.
