I am very happy to announce that registration for the in-person CadenceLIVE Europe user conference has opened! The conference will be hosted in Munich at a new venue, the Hilton Park Hotel.
The Cadence Academic Network is turning 15 this year, so our Academic Track agenda is as packed as ever with interesting presentations by professors from all over Europe. Continuing the tradition, Europractice is opening the track with updates on their academic offerings. After that presentation, yet another tradition will be continued, the new Lead Institution Professor will do an invited presentation. This year, the new member of this exclusive club is Professor Francesco Fornetti from the University of Bristol. Professor Fornetti is known as the academic evangelist for AWR, and he has his own channel on YouTube, where he explains how AWR can be used to cover almost all aspects of microelectronics education, not just RF!
This year our Program Chairs have selected two winners of the Cadence Academic Network Master Thesis Awards. One prize for the best master thesis for analog design using Cadence tools goes to Vijayalakshmi Surendranath Shroff from the University of Paderborn for her thesis “Design of Low Phase Noise Amplifier with 50 GHz bandwidth.” The other prize for the best master thesis for digital design using Cadence tools goes to Malte Hawich from the University of Hannover for his thesis “Specialization and Performance Optimization of a TTA Processor for Communication in Harsh Environments using Timing Speculation.” Both winners will present their topics during the Academic Track.
In addition to these presentations, the Program Committee has selected presentations from the submitted papers from a variety of universities: University of Reutlingen, RWTH Aachen, University of Lund, and TU Hamburg-Harburg. Also, in the industrial tracks, there will be academic presentations from imec on “Thermal simulations on very advanced digital designs”, from the student group AeroDelft on CFD, from University of Ramon Llull and more.
Finally, there’s the Entrepreneur Track, where Proof-of-Concept startups are talking about the ideas they are working on – turning dreams into reality. We have Celtro with a groundbreaking pacemaker, which does not need external energy source, Deep Detection with revolutionary multi-color x-ray cameras, Skycore Semiconductors with effective power converters, FLEEPtech with organic printed electronics technology, and Synthara.ai with designs for artificial intelligence.
The Academic Track at CadenceLIVE Europe is the place where academia meets industry, where connections are made, and discussions are started. Don’t miss this exciting event!
