Imagination CEO Hossein Yassaie To Deliver Keynote At SNUG Silicon Valley

LONDON, March 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Imagination Technologies (LSE:IMG), a leading multimedia, processor, communications and cloud technologies company, announces that its CEO Hossein Yassaie will deliver the Tuesday morning keynote address at the upcoming Synopsys Users Group (SNUG™) Silicon Valley conference. Yassaie will present, "From Crystal Ball to Reality – The Impact of Silicon IP on SoC Design," at 9:00 a.m. on 26 th March, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, California.

Says Yassaie: "I am delighted to be invited by Synopsys to present the keynote at its highly-regarded SNUG event. SoCs have transformed the electronics industry, integrating a wide array of functionality and extreme performance into cost-effective, low-power platforms. At the same time, the silicon IP industry has emerged to supply many major functional blocks on today's SoCs. I will discuss how IP helps designers translate vision into reality, and explore the future of SoC design, where the GPU is the new driving force for modern applications, design methodologies and process technologies, and heterogeneous processing is transforming the way SoCs handle key user applications."

Says Antun Domic, senior vice president, Implementation Group, Synopsys: "Now in its 22 nd year, SNUG brings together more than 9,000 Synopsys tool and technology users through its conferences worldwide, and it has grown to be Silicon Valley's largest technical conference. We invited Hossein to speak this year because of his vision and innovation. The use of IP is becoming increasingly important in terms of meeting time-to-market and design complexity requirements. We look forward to what is certain to be a compelling keynote from Hossein that will provide valuable insights for our user community."
