Since co-founding Synopsys in 1986, Dr. Aart de Geus has expanded Synopsys from a start-up synthesis enterprise to the world leader in electronic design automation. Dr. de Geus has long been considered one of the world’s leading experts on logic synthesis and simulation, and frequently keynotes major conferences in Electronics and Design Automation.Dr. de Geus is the recipient of numerous industry and community honors, including Electronic Business Magazine’s "CEO of the Year" (2002) and "Top 10 Most Influential Executives" (2005), the IEEE Robert N. Noyce Medal (2007), the Silicon Valley Leadership Group (SVLG) "Spirit of the Valley" Lifetime Achievement Award (2007), the GSA "Morris Chang Exemplary Leadership Award" (2009), and most recently, the 2013 Silicon Valley Engineering Council Hall of Fame Award. He is also heavily involved in education for the next generation, having created the Synopsys Outreach Foundation in 1999, which promotes project-based science and math learning throughout Silicon Valley.


Speech Insights: 

“Shift Left”- how the Industry is Adopting New Techniques and Methodologies to achieve faster Time-to-Market.

In the traditional sense “Shift Left” is the process of making things simpler in an effort to make things faster. Shift Left was the theme by Synopsys Chairman and co-CEO Aart de Geus which is right on topic when it comes to modern semiconductor design and manufacturing. “Smart Design from Silicon to Software; shift left” – in other words, “squeezing the schedule to design, verify, debug, and manufacture semiconductors. In our current semiconductor design community, the word “change” is, to say the least, an understatement. From a dizzying array of emerging “smart” niche end-products to major market trend shifts to ecosystem reconfigurations at every level, the world around us is morphing at an unprecedented pace. The challenge for IC designers to keep pace has never been greater. In his speech, Aart will address the business and technology trends that are stretching designers’ concerns beyond the traditional sand boxes of design and verification.
