Aart de Geus: Grand Challenges in IP

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

 


This is fourth in a 4-part series on Grand Challenges in IP
. Previous dialogs featured Sonics CEO Grant Pierce, CAST-IP Board Chair Hal Barbour, and Silvaco IP Division GM Warren Savage. This final, lengthy conversation is with Synopsys co-CEO Aart de Geus, winner of the 2008 Phil Kaufman Award.

Neither is it an understatement to say de Geus is always on-message, always on-point. The interview below is no exception.

Here’s the thing: Yeah, yeah it’s cool that IBM – which apparently invented or first implemented everything [see Below] – has announced 7-nanometer transistors that actually work. Yeah, that’s pretty teeny tiny and everybody’s thrilled. Of course.

Everybody at IBM, GlobalFoundaries, and Samsung (the triumvirate formerly known as Common Platform). Luminaries at Stanford, SUNY, and the Albany NanoTech Complex. Even the Good Governor of the Great Empire State himself.
