SNUG Silicon Valley On Demand

For thirty years the Silicon Valley design community has come together for one of the industry’s largest user conferences, the Synopsys Users Group (SNUG). SNUG provides users of Synopsys tools and IP with an opportunity to share experiences, learn about Synopsys’ newest technology and future product direction, and network with experts and members of the local design engineering community.

SNUG Silicon Valley 2020 was cancelled due to measures necessitated by the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, in the spirit of community, the users and Synopsys thought leaders continued working behind the scenes to produce SNUG content that can be accessed by users from any work from home environment.

SNUG on Demand offers up over 100 curated articles of content including user and tutorial presentation recordings, user papers, and Synopsys presentations. Download the content you are interested in below by track, content type, or visit our proceedings archive to search by presentation title and/or presenter.

A Special Message from Aart de Geus

While there won’t be a SNUG Silicon Valley this year due to measures necessitated by the global pandemic, Synopsys co-CEO Aart de Geus took time to reflect on 30 years of SNUG and discuss how Synopsys continues to drive state of the art in EDA, sharing information about recent product announcements – RTL Architect, VC SpyGlass RTL Static Signoff platform, and – each featuring exciting new capabilities.

A Message from the Technical Chair

For 30 years, SNUG has been the proverbial watering hole, attracting the brightest minds who use technology and tools to fuel innovation while cultivating the spirit of community to amplify the impact of those innovations. The impressive content contributed by expert users had been carefully curated by the Technical Committee for months. Authors worked tirelessly to incorporate feedback to ensure content quality. From this extensive collection of high quality papers, the Technical Committee employed a rigorous review process to select the best papers based on technical merit, novelty and overall presentation. The proceedings are now available and I encourage you to engage with the content, reach out to authors with questions and consider contributing to the next SNUG.

Despite social distancing and travel restrictions, I have never felt more connected and proud to be in high-tech. What we do is what allows us to work and learn from home and is what will help us overcome this global crisis. I hope that you are as inspired as I am by the resilience of our broader community and will use this time to pursue all challenges with renewed rigor and compassion. On behalf of the Technical Committee, thank you for being the essential ingredient that makes SNUG so special to us all.
