Mentor Israel Tech-Day 2019

You must have heard about “fish N’ chips”, how about “hummus N’ chips”? When you think of Israel, you probably are thinking of hummus. Well, Israel has way more goodies than just delicious food; Israel has more museums per capita than any other country and there are close to 150 Chip design centers in Israel. Israeli semiconductor industry is one of the most advanced in the world with the third-highest concentration of design houses that employs over 20,000 engineers. Almost all of the world’s leading semiconductor firms have significant R&D centers in Israel, alongside a large number of local semiconductor companies. Recent advances in areas such as artificial intelligence and autonomous vehicles are creating demand for powerful new devices and startups in Israel are angling to fill the space.

The growth of semiconductor design in Israel is driving new demands for EDA simulation solutions. Mentor is pleased to host our very first ‘AMS and Functional Verification’ Tech-Day on November 6, 2019.  This is a great opportunity for analog/RF circuit designers and ASIC/FPGA verification engineers to learn how our customers are using Mentor solutions to solve their most complex design and verification challenges.

Meet face-to-face with Mentor experts for advice, product updates, and to discover how Mentor solutions can help you achieve first-pass silicon success and meet time to market requirements. We kick off the day with a keynote on “Machine Learning to Accelerate Electronic Designpresented by Amit Gupta, General Manager of the IC Verification Solutions Solido division of Mentor, a Siemens Business. The rest of the day is divided into two tracks:

Functional Verification Track – (Sessions from ARM, WD, Mentor)

Analog Mixed-Signal Track – (Sessions from Analog Value, Mentor – Solido)

At the end of this tech-day, you might have a new food favorite “Hummus N’ CHIPS” 🙂
