Connecting the Synopsys User Community

Since 1991, the Synopsys Users Group (SNUG) has represented a global design community focused on innovating from Silicon to Software. Today, as the electronics industry’s largest user conference, SNUG brings together over 12,000 Synopsys tool and technology users across North America, Europe, Asia, and Japan. In addition to peer-reviewed technical presentations and insightful keynotes from industry leaders, SNUG provides a unique opportunity to connect with Synopsys executives, design ecosystem partners, and members of your design community.

Join your fellow engineers at SNUG to hear practical information you can use on your current projects and the inspiration to create Smart Everything.
