The Bottom Line: Verigy moves toward a change in test

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

Finding something new that might actually help the semiconductor industry become profitable is like looking for three wise men and a virgin in Las Vegas, especially when you are going through Semicon,  But last week, on the second day of the conference, I had three people tell me I should go look at what Verigy was showing.  I’ve always been used to seeing testers that took up entire rooms and were hot enough to cook soup in (which I have done but that’s another story).  What I found was both fascinating and yet left me wanting more.  That’s not a bad thing.  What it was was a step in the right direction.  That’s for sure. Here’s the link to the interview

Cadence goes “Xuropean”

Monday, July 6th, 2009

Last week, Xuropa announced the availability of Cadence labs on the Cadence Xuropa suite.  This is the first step in what promises to be an expanding use of the social media platform by Cadence.   I notice that fellow bloggers Peggy Aycinena and Graham Bell have also weighed in on Xuropa and Cadence moving CDNLive to a virtual experience.  A few weeks ago, Xuropa founder James Colgan and I sat down an video taped an interview talking about how social media is changing marketing in high- tech arenas like EDA. We held off posting the interview until Cadence was ready to announce, but here it is in all it’s glory.

Accellera and SPIRIT: Consolidation comes to standards

Sunday, June 21st, 2009

This is the inaugural post of a new podcast focusing on the recent announcement of the merger between Accellera and SPIRIT. We’re interviewing Accellera chairman Shrenik Mehta, and SPIRIT founder Ralph von Vignau and going a bit deeper than some of the previous coverage. We talked about the history of the two organizations, how they came to this decision and what’s in store for the future. We did the interview over Skype, which caused a few technical problems, but that will be worked out in the future. Looking forward to hearing your comments and please feel free to recommend additional subjects to cover.
Here’s the link to the interview. The podcast is also available for download on iTunes.
