In its third year, MUSIC-India's expected attendance has grown significantly, reflecting the growing number of cutting-edge designs being done in India and Magma's growing customer base and expanding presence here.
A platform that encourages the exchange of ideas and challenges faced in nanometer IC design, this year's MUSIC-India will feature 15 user presentations, tutorials and more. Highlights of this year's event will be keynotes by Rajeev Madhavan, Chairman and CEO of Magma, and Dr. Bobby Mitra, managing director of Texas Instruments, who will present "The Semiconductor Market in India: A Lifetime Opportunity."
"The number and complexity of IC designs being done in India is growing fast, and so are the design challenges," said Jagdeesh Rao, Managing Director of Texas Instruments. "Today, noise, power and signal integrity, on-chip variation, and timing closure must all be addressed. With its emphasis on user case-studies and tutorials, MUSIC provides designers with a platform to share knowledge and learn practical and proven techniques. The MUSIC conference is sure to be a very useful forum and I am sure Magma users in India will receive immense value by attending this event.\"
