With hundreds of attendees buzzing about, our video crew has been busy with their “man-on-the-street” style interviews from the floor of “CDNLive! Silicon Valley 2008” here at the San Jose Convention Center.

The “CDN” in the name stands for “Cadence Designer Network.”  This week’s conference is part of a worldwide series of meetings where Cadence power-users can network with their peers as well as industry experts and Cadence technologists. This annual event provides a unique forum for participants to exchange ideas and best practices.

The vision for this year’s conference is to help designers overcome challenges stemming from the increased “consumerization” and macro-economic pressures affecting the global electronics market.

I’ll be adding more videos as they come in. Meantime, take a look at some of the coverage below. (Double-click each video to see a larger version)
