The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is only a few short weeks away and the Electronic System Design Alliance will be there in full force. We continue to be a proud DAC co-sponsor –– a distinction we’ve had since 1992 –– and we’ll have a booth on the exhibit floor again this year. I hope you’ll stop by our booth (#1920) to learn more about the Alliance, our expanded mission and new initiatives in support of the Design Ecosystem. Exhibits will be open Monday, June 6, through Wednesday, June 8, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas.
We will host a DAC Pavilion (Booth #1839) talk, “Solving the Design Cost Puzzle: How intellectual property (IP) Fits,” featuring Jim Feldhan, president of Semico Research, Tuesday from 10:30 a.m. until 11 a.m. He will address trends and issues driving the rapidly growing market for third-party IP. This follows our joint announcement in April about a cooperative marketing partnership between Semico and the ESD Alliance to work together on several business initiatives in support of the semiconductor design ecosystem.
