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).

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.
