EDAC_EDAC Connected Logo_December 2015I’m out of town this week with the DAC Executive Committee –– EDAC is one of DAC’s three sponsors ––as we put the finishing touches on this
year’s program. While details won’t be available for a few more weeks, I can say that the program is looking very strong this year with a lot of technical diversity including security, IoT, automotive, IP, and a few more surprises.


Consider Nominating Outstanding Individual for 2016 Phil Kaufman Award

Tuesday, February 16th, 2016

EDAC_EDAC Connected Logo_December 2015We’re an industry filled with exceptional individuals, 21 of whom have been singled out and heralded by being recipients of the Phil Kaufman Award for Distinguished Contributions to Electronic Design Automation (EDA) Award since it was established in 1994.

It’s time once again to consider a deserving individual for this prestigious award presented yearly by the EDA Consortium (EDAC) and the IEEE Council on EDA (CEDA). Nominations are open and will be accepted until Thursday, June 30.

As you know, Dr. Walden (Wally) C. Rhines, chairman and chief executive officer of Mentor Graphics Corporation, was the recipient of the 2015 award. He was honored for growing the EDA and IC design industries through his efforts as a leading voice of EDA and for pioneering the evolution of IC design to SoC design.

EDAC Event During DVCon Highlights Verification Company’s Success

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

EDAC_EDAC Connected Logo_December 2015Now, there’s another reason to head to the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose, Calif., the week of February 29. Yes, the annual DVCon kicks off Monday, February 29, with a day full of tutorials and the DVCon Expo and Booth Crawl that begins at 5 p.m.

Tuesday evening, March 1, EDAC and our Emerging Companies Committee will host the next “Crossing the Chasm: From Technology to Valuable Enterprise.” Jim Hogan will chat with Dr. Ajoy Bose, former chairman, president and CEO of Atrenta, about how Atrenta successfully crossed the chasm, moving from technology company to valuable enterprise acquired by Synopsys.

The evening will start at 6 p.m., just as the DVCon exhibits close for the day. A networking session with light refreshments will be held from 6-7 p.m. The discussion will begin at 7 p.m. DVCon attendees are welcome to join us.

Everyone reading this blog knows or has heard of Jim Hogan, an indefatigable promoter of EDA, and the series he created on the entrepreneurial experience. An earlier blog features an interview with Jim on this popular event.
