The worldwide semiconductor market is finishing a tough year with IHS iSuppli forecasting 2012 at $303B down 2.3% from 2011.  At first blush this is not very exciting, but just take a moment and think about the increasing capabilities of the chips shipping in 2012 due to Moore’s law advancing capabilities across all semiconductors. Mobile devices like smart phones, media tablets and mobile PCs are driving semiconductor innovation and revenues.  But these devices are the most visible part of the iceberg.

The 11th annual Synopsys User Group Event (SNUG) will take place on May 24, 2011 at the Daniel hotel in Herzelia.

Since the first event in 2000, SNUG Israel established itself as “the technical conference for techies”, the best place to share and learn from each other’s design and verification experience.  And it is also a great opportunity to catch up with colleagues and friends!

Over the years, SNUG Israel branded itself as one of the major events of the Israeli semiconductor and EDA industry. On May 25, 2010, SNUG Israel celebrated its 10th anniversary at the Daniel hotel in Herzelya, setting new records in turnout, program size and complexity.

On May 25th, 2010, at the Daniel Hotel in Herzelia, we celebrate a decade of SNUGs, the Synopsys User Group Conference - Click here to register.

It all started 10 years ago, in the spring of the year 2000, when you asked us why don’t we organize a user group like in other major semiconductor design global centers.  Sharing experiences is part of the hi-tech culture and Israel already had a large number of Synopsys users.
