Update on COVID-19:

In an ongoing effort to protect our community, we have rescheduled the U2U Mid-Atlantic/MARLUG conference for January 26, 2021.

The health and well-being of our Mentor family of customers, employees, and partners is our top priority. We are continuously monitoring the impact of COVID-19, evaluating all new developments, and determining measures to protect the health and safety of our communities in accordance with the guidance of international and national authorities.

Please stay safe and watch this space for additional event details later this year.

The U2U Mid-Atlantic Region Users Group (MARLUG) conference is a one-day event geared toward Electrical Engineers, ASIC/FPGA Engineers, PCB designers and Manufacturing Engineers that use or plan to use Mentor tools.

Come network with your peers from companies across the region to learn about useful tips and tricks, as well as new product capabilities.

Registration and breakfast will start at 8:00 am, with the opening keynote beginning at 9:00 am.  We will close out the day with a networking reception after the final session at 3:00 pm.

U2U is always free to attend, but pre-registration is required. Space is limited so register today!

What to Expect

U2U MARLUG will have three tracks with topics delivered by Mentor customers and Mentor product experts who will be on hand to answer your questions about the tools, the engineering process, and solutions for your design challenges.

Tracks 1 and 2: Printed Circuit Board Design and Simulation

The PCB track has a wide range of topics, First, there will be a presentation on Valor NPI and how it is integrated with Xpedition with Xpedition PCB in Vx2.6. You will also see a customer presentation of a case study on Xpedition’s Rigid Flex functionality.  You will learn about Chiplets and how they are designed using the Xpedition Substrate Integrator tool, and a customer presentation on EDM library and how they plan on using it to handle multiple librarians at multiple sites across the country.

The Simulation Track will feature topics based on the Mentor HyperLynx toolset.  Introduction to Power Aware with Hyperlynx, Case studies with the Hyperlynx Full Wave Solver, how to write scripts in Hyperlynx linesim and boardsim.

Track 3: ASIC & FPGA: Advanced Functional Verification

The verification track will focus on adoption of new methodologies to solve complex verification tasks while limiting the disruption of change. Users will present their experiences in adopting advanced simulations flows including regression management, test bench creation, advanced debug and simulation acceleration techniques. In addition to advanced simulation flows users will present how automatic formal methods can be used to solve complex verification tasks such as code coverage closure, Clock domain crossing verification, connectivity checking and automatic formal verification techniques.

Who Should Attend

Electronic design engineers and their managers interested in exploring innovative products and solutions that help engineers to solve design challenges in the increasingly complex worlds of board and chip design.
