Honoring Mentor Graphics’ Wally Rhines

Monday, October 19th, 2015

EDAC_EDAC Connected Logo_December 2015This year’s 2015 Phil Kaufman Award Presentation and Dinner will be an exceptionally gala event. You are cordially invited to attend to help our industry honor Dr. Walden (Wally) C. Rhines, chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) of Mentor Graphics Corporation, and celebrate all his accomplishments.

The evening, hosted by the EDA Consortium (EDAC) and the IEEE Council on EDA (CEDA), will be held Thursday, November 12, at the 4th Street Summit Center in San Jose, Calif. The reception will begin at 6:30 p.m., with the dinner and presentation commencing at 7:30 p.m.

While the selection committee received numerous nominations for well-deserving individuals, I was told that Wally Rhines’ nomination stood out. As it should. He is well known and respected throughout the EDA, IP and Semiconductor industry and is being recognized for growing the EDA and IC design industries through his efforts as a leading voice of EDA. Likewise, he is known for pioneering the evolution of IC design to SoC design.


An Evening on Patents

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015


EDAC_EDAC Connected Logo_December 2015Talking about patents at a cocktail party is no way to make friends and a near-perfect way to clear    the room!

Nonetheless, the EDA Consortium is about to take that risk as we kick off our new Legal Series with a panel, “Patents and Patent Litigation –– Develop, Strengthen, and Protect Your Intellectual Property.”

Please join us Thursday evening, October 29, for an informative exchange. Come meet San Jose’s Mayor Sam Liccardo, who will offer opening remarks, and Trademark Office and John Cabeca, newly named director of the Silicon Valley United States Patent and Trademark Office. The event will start at 6 p.m. with networking and refreshments at the EDA Consortium/SEMI Global Headquarters in San Jose, Calif.

Connecting with the EDA Consortium

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

EDAC_EDAC Connected Logo_December 2015Welcome to the first EDAC Connected blog post, a blog I intend to update monthly with news on happenings within the EDA Consortium (EDAC) organization.

In my role as Executive Director of EDAC, my priorities are to ensure that we are delivering benefits and relevance to our members and to promote the value and impact that the EDA, IP, Embedded and related vendors have on the worldwide semiconductor industry. Of course, I’m also focused on encouraging the entire industry to join and participate with us.

We have some activities you may be familiar with, but plenty that you may not know about –– many done behind the scenes and that’s about to change. Some of the EDAC committees that have toiled away in relative obscurity and known only by a small handful of industry insiders are about to become much better known, including License Management and Anti-Piracy (LMA), Interoperability and Export Compliance. All are immensely important to the health and vitality of our industry.
