An Open letter to the EDA industry:
The Design Technology Committee (DTC) invites EDA vendors to join us for a meeting at DAC to share with you the results of our study groups on EDA gaps and requirements requiring your near-term attention in the areas of the digital implementation flow and functional verification.
DTC Study Groups
The Design Technology Committee (DTC, http://www.c-eda.org/dtcommittee) under IEEE CEDA currently represents 12 leading IC companies to identify and gather our common concerns, gaps and requirements for EDA and to voice them and to bring them to the attention of the EDA industry.
For this purpose, the DTC had established two study groups to detail our common EDA gaps and requirements requiring your near-term attention in the areas of the digital implementation flow and functional verification.
A first set of results is now available.
We want to invite you to join the DTC for a meeting at DAC to share with you our motivation and background for this activity as well as to review these results. We then want to discuss concrete next steps/ actions how to address these gaps and requirements. The near-term goal is to review your progress at a meeting during ICCAD in November.
The meeting will take place Monday, June 6, from 11:30 a.m.-1:45 p.m. at the Marriott Hotel next to the Convention Center.
This meeting is open to EDA vendors active in these two design flow areas.
We want someone with the authority and the influence to discuss and commit to concrete actions and timelines as a result of this meeting. These actions include assigning of technical experts to our study group, adjusting your technical implementation schedules to incorporate our requirements, etc.
This meeting is not to discuss technical details but to create an alignment for common next steps and to identify concrete actions.
The results of both study groups will be presented in the DAC User Track as well.
Please contact me for the current results and background information for your review prior to the meeting.
Thank you and best regards,
Chairman of the Design Technology Committee
