Kickin’ it up in Austin with Ajoy and Wally

Friday, June 28th, 2013

For some Friday fun….

For those of you who were unable to attend the big 50th DAC party, or you just missed the intro to Asleep at the Wheel, you might find this little video entertaining.

It’s a video of Cowboy Ajoy and Ranger Rhines (aka Ajoy Bose, CEO of Atrenta and Wally Rhines, CEO of Mentor), cutting it up on the Austin City Limits stage to kick off Kickin’ it up in Austin.

Design Rule Manual Creation a Bottleneck?

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Sage Design Automation, Inc. announced its founding technology last month and created a lot of customer and media buzz at DAC’13 inAustin.  I bet a lot of people were surprised that design rule manual creation and DRC deck implementation were manual, error-prone  tasks – especially as we get into smaller process geometries – and that they can take years to put one together.

In a way, it’s a lot like writing a long paper on a typewriter, or even by hand.  When you make an error, you use White Out (remember that?) or type back over the error with the erasing ribbon.  There’s no way to correlate the paper’s index, spell check, grammar check or check for consistency.

So we accosted Sage-DA president and CEO Coby Zelnik to ask him about this problem, one that many of us assumed just took care of itself!  Here’s what he had to say.

Awaiting word from Innopartners director Orrantia on winner of Open Compute Project hackathon

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

We’re waiting to hear from SKTA Innopartners LLC director Angel Orrantia on the results of the Open Compute Project hackathon that took place yesterday at the Facebook campus.   Orrantia is one of the judges. We hear that the winner will be announced at the GigaOM Structure conference this afternoon sometime.

What happened at the hackathon?

There were a number of  teams comprised of over 50 hackers from Silicon Valley, Singapore, Miami, Boston, Seattle, Virginia and Texas.

Projects included:

• building an ARM based system on a chip

• bringing robotics into the datacenter to automate repairs

• building a fast interconnect between ARM boards

• gathering server diagnostics data into a web interface for remote diagnostics over the web

• two projects on car automation

1- collecting diagnostic data about the car – like speed, fuel consumption, acceleration, etc. – to give people the ability to monitor their driving habits to prevent or avoid accidents

2- designing a headset that measures brainwaves to alert the driver or a third party company that can get in touch with the driver

Also, the winners from the last hackathon returned to continue working and expanding on their debug port aggregation hack.

The Internet of Things

Sunday, June 16th, 2013

 

As Mike Demler predicted back in May, the “Internet of Things” was all the buzz at DAC this year. 

Freescale CEO Gregg Lowe talked about the opportunities and challenges in his keynote.  

Mentor CEO Wally Rhines said in his keynote that the big growth in the semiconductor industry will come with the Internet of Things. 

It was simultaneously discussed at the GSA European Executive Forum in Munich and the Sensors Expo in Chicago

What do you think? 

Is it the next big thing? 

Can EDA step up to the challenge? 

And what does it mean to our future?
