Come Ride with the Verify Seven, the Next-Gen Verification Leaders

February 17th, 2017 by Bob Smith, Executive Director

I’m now able to share with EDACafe readers the news about an exciting evening panel we’re co-hosting with OneSpinSolutions titled, “Ride with the Verify Seven,” during DVCon Monday, February 27.

It will be moderated by industry luminary Jim Hogan of Vista Ventures and features six well-known and readily recognizable verification leaders who grew their companies from startup to medium-sized industry player:

  • Andy Stein, Vice President of North American Sales from Avery Design Systems
  • Adnan Hamid, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Breker Verification Systems
  • Phil Moorby, Chief Architect of Montana, a Phil Kaufman Award recipient presented to him by the ESD Alliance and IEEE CEDA for inventing the Verilog language
  • Raik Brinkmann, President CEO of OneSpin
  • Prakash Narain, Real Intent’s President and CEO
  • Rick Carlson, Verific’s Vice President of Sales and advisor to seven early-stage startups

These are the heavy hitters, each of whom will express his thoughts on making it as a small company in EDA, what’s coming in verification and what end-users can expect in the future. Enjoy drinks and snacks with these leaders, and listen in to a panel discussion where they express their thoughts on making it as a small company in EDA, what’s coming in verification, and what can end-users expect in the future.

Join in on what promises to be a lively exchange of ideas on how we can improve this industry. Light refreshments and drinks will be served.

It all happens directly after DVCon’s Booth Crawl Monday, February 27, beginning at 7 p.m. and goes until 8:30 p.m. Light refreshments and drinks will be served. You’ll find us in the Oak/Gateway Ballroom at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose, Calif.

The event is open free of charge to all ESD Alliance member companies and DVCon attendees. Non-members of the Alliance or anyone without a DVCon badge are invited to attend for a fee of $40.
