Are you ready to step inside one of the premier conferences in the electronics industry? SNUG Silicon Valley 2024 will be back at the Santa Clara Convention Center in March, bringing together some of the brightest minds in silicon and systems design. Synopsys customers can register today and prepare to be inspired by a full slate of keynotes, panel discussions, peer-reviewed technical talks, tutorials, and networking opportunities.

Synopsys President and CEO Sassine Ghazi will kick things off on March 20 with his keynote, “Unprecedented Innovation in the Era of Pervasive Intelligence. Ghazi will highlight key paradigm changes that are powering innovation from silicon to systems. The spotlight lunch panel that day will cover “AI-Driven Chip Design: Meeting the Challenges of Tomorrow. Speakers will explore how AI is delivering chip design breakthroughs that are enhancing innovation, quality of results, and productivity.

During the rest of Day 1, you can build your own agenda from an array of topics. Curious about the next generation of 3DIC interposers? Ready for a deeper dive into in-field reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) challenges? Want to learn how big data analytics can help accelerate digital design implementation? Technical experts from Synopsys and leading companies in the industry will address these issues and much more. Unwind with your peers at our famous SNUG Pub to close out the first day.

Day 2 of SNUG Silicon Valley, March 21, begins with a keynote by Rani Borkar, corporate vice president of Azure Hardware Systems and Infrastructure at Microsoft. In “From Momentum to Scale: Unlocking Value in Innovation for the AI Transformation,Borkar will share her perspectives on how organizations across the semiconductor ecosystem can embrace their unique roles in creating AI at scale to open up new possibilities. The second day’s spotlight lunch panel will address why “Unsolvable Analog Design Challenges Need Breakthrough Technologies. Panelists will examine whether AI could help solve unique analog design challenges and how breakthrough EDA technologies can alleviate productivity and engineering resource limitations.

As with the first day, Day 2 of SNUG Silicon Valley is filled with something for everyone. Get a better understanding of precision timing control and validation in memory systems emulation. Learn how to master floorplanning challenges with 3DIC solutions. Find out how an SoC timing model can provide a novel approach for performance verification at the IP level. These are just a handful of thought-provoking sessions that await you. Day 2 winds down with a poster session, new to SNUG Silicon Valley, and closes with an after party featuring food, drinks, and awards presentations.

During both days of the conference, networking lounges will be available for you to connect and share ideas with other attendees. Also, during lunch and late afternoon periods, you can step into our new SNUG Demo Theater on both days for a closer look at an array of Synopsys products and technologies, including Synopsys Copilot, Synopsys Cloud, and Synopsys ZeBu® EP1 hardware-assisted verification platform.

Welcoming Academics for Workforce Development Collaboration

As with last year, SNUG Silicon Valley is again extending an invitation to professors, Ph.D. candidates, and post-doctoral researchers to attend the conference through the Synopsys Academic & Research Alliances (SARA). (Academia registrations are subject to approval by the SARA team.) SARA enables workforce development efforts by collaborating with universities, providing access to advanced technologies through our University Software Program, curricula, lab materials, and more.
