SNUG Boston Call for Papers  

Call for Papers Has Been Extended

If you have used Synopsys technology to overcome difficult design issues and to accelerate your innovation, the SNUG community wants to hear from you!

Share your experience using Synopsys tools and IP at the 2017 Synopsys Users Group (SNUG) in Boston. SNUG brings together Synopsys users, technologists and industry experts for your local technical conference devoted to the challenges of electronic design and verification.
