Full-Day Tutorials at Design Automation Conference

Registration is still open for the tutorials offered on Monday, June 4 and Friday, June 8 as part of the 44th Design Automation Conference, happening June 4-8 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif. A total of seven tutorials will be offered to provide design engineers valuable, in-depth, technical information on a wide variety of today’s most challenging design topics, including variability, system design for embedded multimedia devices, formal verification techniques, design of high-performance power delivery networks, soft errors, design and yield, and low power design. The registration fee for the tutorials is $300 per tutorial and includes continental breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks, and tutorial notes. Attendees can register for the conference, including these tutorials, online at the DAC Web site or at the conference.
