One of the best things about the Design Automation Conference (DAC 2014) is the ability to hear how other engineers are solving tough IC and system design and verification challenges. And the best place to do that is the Cadence Theater, located at the Cadence booth (#2616). The Theater will host half-hour customer and partner presentations from 9:30 am Monday, June 2, to 3:30 pm Wednesday June 4.
Over 40 presentations are currently scheduled. They are open to all DAC attendees and no reservations are required. Companies that will be presenting in the Cadence Theater include AMD, ARM, Altera, Broadcom, Cisco, CSR, Fujitsu, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, National Instruments, Qualcomm, Samsung, Solarflare, TSMC, Tektronix, TowerJazz, and Xilinx.
Similar presentations were offered at the Cadence DAC Theater in 2012 and 2013, and many attracted standing-room-only crowds. These informal presentations are given in an interactive setting with an opportunity for questions and answers. Audio recordings with slides will be available at the Cadence website after DAC. To access recordings of the 2013 DAC Theater presentations, click here.

Every hour on the hour, there will be a giveaway for a set of Bose noise-cancelling headphones, a Kindle, or a GoPro Hero3 video camera. See the Cadence Theater schedule for details.
Join us for a special event at the Cadence Theater Wednesday at 3:30 pm, when the Cadence Academic Network will hold a PhD Forum Award ceremony.
