If you missed last week's CDNLive! Silicon Valley, or if you attended and found it difficult to be several places at once, some on-line resources are now available to help with presentations you may have missed. This posting introduces CDNLive! On-Demand and also lists both Cadence Community blogs and external blogs and articles about the event.
CDNLive! Papers Are On Line
CDNLive! Silicon Valley included a number of paper presentations from customers, partners, and Cadence authors. The CDNLive! On-Demand site includes six papers from the System Realization track, six papers from the SoC Realization track, and 24 papers from the four Silicon Realization tracks. You can view the sessions and/or download PDFs of the presentations. To access them, you'll need to log in with your Cadence.com account (or create an account by following the link on the site).
Papers reflect user experiences and "best practices" in a number of technology areas, including functional verification, hardware/software integration, low power, mixed-signal implementation and verification, IP integration, analog layout automation, and many other topics. You can also view a short CDNLive! "highlights" video with brief comments from attendees and Cadence executives, music, silhouetted acrobats, and views of the standing-room-only crowd.
