  • Sagantec 2 Migrate iPad2s @ #48DAC

    Sagantec is the leading EDA provider of process migration solutions for custom IC design. Sagantec's EDA solutions enable IC designers to leverage their investment in existing physical design IP and accomplish dramatic time and effort savings in the implementation of custom, analog, mixed-signal and memory circuits in advanced process technologies.

    These solutions have been used commercially by tier-1 semiconductor companies, and have been proven to reduce layout time and effort by factors of 3x to 20x and enable dramatically faster introduction of IC products in new technology nodes.

    Apple does not allow iPad2 "giveaways" so Sagantec will be "migrating" iPad2s to a select few conference goers that register for If you are already registered for just stop by and check-in to qualify for the "migration".
