See You in Austin!

DAC53_LongLogoA reminder that the ESD Alliance –– a proud DAC co-sponsor –– will exhibit at DAC in Booth (#1920) Monday, June 6, through Wednesday, June 8, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the Austin Convention Center, Austin, Texas. Please stop by our booth to say hello and to learn more about our support of the Design Ecosystem. We’ll have plenty of informational handouts, including the latest edition of our newsletter, brochures on our new initiatives and membership packets.

Or, join us at the DAC Pavilion (Booth #1839) for, “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. Jim will address trends and issues driving the rapidly growing market for third-party IP.

You’ll find many of us from the Alliance at the Gary Smith EDA kickoff Sunday from 5 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. in the convention center’s Ballroom D. Laurie Balch, a chief analyst for Gary Smith EDA, will open the annual reception with the annual update on the state of EDA, “Extending the Bounds of EDA.” The always well-attended DAC reception immediately follows.

I take great pleasure in announcing the ESD Alliance Board of Directors, each of whom will serve two-year terms, ending in May 2018.

Our board consists of:

  • Aart de Geus, chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) of Synopsys, Inc.
  • Dean Drako, president and CEO at IC Manage
  • Amit Gupta, president of Solido Design Automation
  • John Kibarian, president, CEO and co-founder of PDF Solutions, Inc.
  • Lucio Lanza, managing director of Lanza techVentures
  • Grant Pierce, Sonics’ CEO
  • Walden C. Rhines, chairman and CEO of Mentor Graphics Corporation
  • Simon Segars, CEO at ARM
  • Lip-Bu Tan, president and CEO of Cadence Design Systems

Lucio Lanza was appointed by the ESD Alliance board in April. The rest of the board, including Amit Gupta, who fills the remaining board seat, was elected by the ESD Alliance’s voting members during the voting period that ended May 20.

Expect to see even more from the Alliance as new and returning board members have vowed to support us as we expand the mission to embrace additional areas of the electronic system design ecosystem.

If you are not attending DAC and have questions about the ESD Alliance, please visit our website at: www.esd-alliance.org or contact me directly at bob@esd-alliance.org. Otherwise, we’ll see you in Austin!
