ARM Developers' Conference Features ARM, Synopsys Low Power Events

Synopsys, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNPS), a world leader in semiconductor design software, and ARM [(LSE: ARM); (NASDAQ: ARMHY)] invite you to attend two special events at ARM Developers’ Conference, October 2-4 at the Santa Clara Convention Center: a Low Power Industry Experts Panel and special evening reception with the Full Disclosure Blues Band.

Low Power Panel: Shaken or Stirred by Low Power Design Challenges?
Wednesday, October 3, 4:00 – 5:15pm
Authors of the Low Power Methodology Manual (LPMM), the industry-recognized low power experts from ARM and Synopsys will share case studies and step-by-step recommendations to achieve low-power silicon success. The panel will discuss solutions to static and dynamic power challenges, including MTCMOS state retention power gating, dynamic voltage and frequency scaling, as well as power network design and analysis.

Low Power Cocktail Party
Wednesday, October 3, 5:00 – 7:00pm
ARM and Synopsys are pleased to sponsor the evening cocktail reception. This signature event will allow attendees to mingle with exhibitors while enjoying food and beverages, and is open to all exhibit floor registrants.

Highlights include:

  • Low Power Methodology Manual authors Michael Keating, David Flynn, Rob Aitken and Alan Gibbons will be signing copies of their recently published book, which has already sold more than 1500 copies since its release in late July.
  • The EDA industry’s Full Disclosure Blues Band will be performing, bringing together band members from across the industry and around the world.
