Thoughts on RTL Lint and a Poem

Monday, May 21st, 2012

The following blog entry was written by Jim Foley, R&D Director at Real Intent

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about RTL lint.  This might be helpful to you, because if you’re tasked with solving multi-corner timing closure or characterizing activity for realistic power estimates, you know you don’t have much time left to think about lint.  Nor should you have to.  Granted, there are very many things that lint can check for – more about this in a bit — and there are as many different opinions about what constructs, conventions, and potential problems ought to be checked for and at which stage in the design process as there are individual design engineers.  I tend to put high value on lint rules that report on constructs that are legal but have suspicious modeling, that in Ascent Lint we categorize as “dubious”.  There’s also a lot of value to checking coding conventions to make code clear and readable – by whatever criteria meets that objective for you or your design group, as well as catching things that may simulate fine but may cost you time and trouble downstream in the design flow.

A Page is Turned

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Deciding on making a career change is always an interesting journey.   Most recently you probably knew me as ‘that guy who does the video interviews over at EDACAfe. ‘    You may not know that I have a history of  Corporate Marketing roles at several innovative EDA Companies such as Extreme DA and NASSDA (both of whom were acquired by SNPS) .

In April, I was having a meeting with Real Intent who are clients of EDACafe.  We talked about the promotion of their  market leading RTL Lint and Clock Domain Crossing analysis tools.  And then the discussion turned to a job opening in their Marketing team.   Very quickly we moved to negotiating my joining Real Intent in a full-time role as Sr. Director of Marketing, which is now official and took place on May 1.

I have enjoyed seeing the continuing dynamism and innovation in the EDA industry at and am now looking forward to being on the company side again.  To all of the EDACafe audience, I want to thank you for all the kind words and reception for the video interviews.  I look forward to seeing you at the DAC show in San Francisco in June.  Come by the Real Intent booth #926 and say hello.
