Cadence Publishes Comprehensive Book on Mixed-Signal Methodology 
The "Mixed-Signal Methodology Guide" Provides Expert Direction on How
to Address Design, Verification and Implementation Challenges of
Modern Mixed-Signal Designs 
SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/13/12 --  Cadence Design Systems,
Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), a leader in global electronic design innovation,
today announced availability of the critically acclaimed and much
anticipated comprehensive design methodology book for chip designers
and CAD engineers that focuses on current and future advanced
mixed-signal design challenges and solutions. The "Mixed-Signal
Methodology Guide" provides an overview of the design, verification
and implementation methodologies required for advanced mixed-signal
designs. The book brings together top mixed-signal design experts
from across the industry -- including authors from Boeing,
Cadence(R), ClioSoft and Qualcomm -- to address the complex problems
facing the mixed-signal design community.  
The growing complexity of today's mixed-signal designs requires major
changes in design methodology to both increase productivity and
deliver high quality products on time. This wide-ranging compendium
examines in depth such topics as AMS behavioral modeling,
mixed-signal metric-driven verification, concurrent mixed-signal
physical implementation, analog scaling at advanced nodes, IC package
integration and data management for mixed-signal designs.  
The volume is intended for design teams looking for improvements in
their mixed-signal design flows. For managers, it provides an
overview of modern mixed-signal methodologies to make it easier to
understand and plan for investment in design capabilities and skills.
The guide also helps analog and digital designers value the domains
and disciplines of one another and learn about more efficient ways to
collaborate, which is critical for the overall success of
mixed-signal projects. 
Comments from leading mixed-signal design companies:
Mixed-Signal Methodology Guide is an outstanding resource for both
new and experienced circuit designers to understand the many facets
of mixed-signal design and verification," said Dr. Kush Gulati,,
general manager for Advanced IP Development at Maxim Integrated
Products and co-founder of Cambridge Analog Technologies. "The many
real-world examples provided in this book, along with the provided
example code, make this book a must-read for anyone involved in the
day-to-day design of mixed-signal systems." 
"Modern mixed-signal design require new methodologies to improve
productivity, reduce design time and achieve silicon success," said
Hao Fang, engineering director at LSI. "The Mixed-Signal Methodology
Guide is a thorough reference book on advanced verification and
implementation methodologies. It will be particularly useful to
mixed-signal verification engineers for its coverage of analog
behavioral modeling, and assertion and metric driven verification
methodology as applied to analog and mixed-signal design."  
"With the growing demand for mixed-signal ICs, now is the time for
the industry to upgrade their approach to mixed-signal design," says
David Peterman, EDA Strategy Manager, Texas Instruments, "The
Mixed-Signal Methodology Guide is a solid step in the right
direction. The verification and implementation techniques and design
examples provide valuable guidance for engineers addressing the
challenges in advanced mixed-signal designs."
