Synopsys customers are cordially invited to attend Synopsys' 20th Annual Test SIG event at ITC 2012. Appetizers and cocktails will be served, followed by a sit-down dinner.

Phil Nigh, Senior Technical Staff at IBM will host the event and test experts from leading companies will present on how they are deploying Synopsys' synthesis-based test solution to address their most challenging test needs. Speakers include:

  • Kun Young Chung, Samsung Electronics
  • Rory Fisher, Avago Technologies

After the presentations, you will have the opportunity to mingle with Synopsys R&D staff to discuss any of your test-related questions.

Prize Drawing: As an attendee, you will be entered in a raffle to win a Google Nexus 7 Tablet.

Seating is limited, so please register early for this important event.

Synopsys Booth # 111
Come and see why Synopsys’ synthesis-based test solution provides the fastest and most cost-effective path to high-quality manufacturing tests and high-volume silicon. It’s comprised of DFTMAX™ compression and TetraMAX® ATPG for power-aware logic test and physical diagnostics, DesignWare® STAR Memory System® for test, repair and diagnostics of embedded memories, DesignWare IP with built-in self-test of high-speed SERDES interfaces, Yield Explorer for design-centric yield analysis, and Camelot™ for CAD navigation. We’ll demonstrate how you can:

  • Lower the cost of testing multi-core ARM® processor-based designs while still meeting your aggressive design goals
  • Efficiently test thousands of memories on-chip and target memory defects at 20nm and below
  • Accelerate yield ramp with design-centric volume diagnostics and collaborative yield analysis
  • Speed physical failure analysis with the de facto standard in CAD navigation
