New Horizons for Chip Design


SNUG World 2021 to Inspire Electronic Design Innovation

Electronic design automation conference

By Editorial Team

Much has changed in the world over the past year, but the drive to innovate remains strong in the electronic system design community. We’re seeing continued advancements in application areas like automotive, artificial intelligence (AI), high-performance computing (HPC), data centers, and more. The technologies that bring these innovations to life are also getting increasingly sophisticated to solve difficult design challenges and help design teams revolutionize our world.
