July 18, 2012 – On the morning of June 13, 2012, hundreds of Synopsys users arrived at the ITC Gardenia hotel in Bangalore, India to learn from each other and discuss the best ways to tackle some of today's greatest design challenges. Hosting more than 2,100 attendees, SNUG India has become one of the largest, most important SNUG events worldwide. The two-day conference, held from June 13 to 14, included two keynote speeches, three vision sessions, nine tutorials, 44 user papers, an 'Ask the Experts' panel on best practices for high-performance processor core implementation, the fourth PrimeTime SIG event, and an impressive Designer Community Expo.
"SNUG India has grown to record attendance numbers because the program showcases Synopsys technologies through customer case studies and presentations. It's not enough to just talk about the latest technology offerings. Engineers want to hear what other users are actually doing with the tools," said Manjunath Haritsa, Synopsys director of application consulting based in India. "I heard from one user this year who decided to deploy a new tool for his designs after seeing another user's presentation at SNUG India. An example like this is powerful because it demonstrates how users can learn from each other to tackle their greatest design challenges."
