Hope you read my previous blog on Cadence Academic Network sponsoring all the student activities and sponsorships at DAC this year. More than 100 students from around the world received the travel grants (sponsorships) and travelled to DAC Austin this year.
Student activities at DAC started on Sunday morning with a breakfast session with Dr. Laleh Behjat, University of Calgary and the Richard Newton Young Faculty Program committee. For all the students who made it to DAC, it was a jam packed schedule. Take a look at their schedule below:
Chuck Alpert from Cadence who was the DAC chair this year decided to also include the Monday Tutorials and Thursday trainings for free for all Newton Fellows. Some of the tutorials where we saw a lot of students were automotive design, Linux driver development, Physical Design (Place and route of large chips), FPGA Prototyping, Voltage margins and more.
On top of the regular training and tutorial sessions, students had the opportunity to participate in networking events like “Women in EDA” dinner.
The most important event for students at DAC is the SIGDA PhD forum. Now in its 19th year, the forum is a poster session for Ph.D. students to present and discuss their dissertation research with people in the EDA community. The PhD forum poster session was held in conjunction with the Richard Newton Young Fellows.
This year’s DAC Cadence Faculty Collaboration Award went to Prof. C.K Cheng from University of California- San Diego who worked with Chin-Chi Teng, Corporate VP - Research & Development, IC Division on analytical placement and MMMC timing analysis.
At the Cadence Theatre, we announced two Design contests where universities can participate. Please visit our design contests page to know more.
