DAC 2012: Terrible Tuesday in San Francisco
May 8, 2012  by Peggy Aycinena


DAC looms!

And never more so than on Tuesday — especially this year, June 5th, when you’re going to have to make some terrible decisions about what to miss, and what not to miss.

First there’s the opening session in the morning when a boatload of awards are handed out, followed by the 2012 keynote. The Exhibition Hall won’t open until these things wrap up, so other than company meetings or company special-product announcement breakfasts, you should be able to be in the main theater at Moscone from 8:30 to 10:00 am or so.

Of course, worst case scenario: The opening session at DAC is always video-taped, so you could watch it at a later date after it’s uploaded to the DAC website but that’s hardly ideal.

This year’s main address will be delivered by ARM’s Mike Muller, “comparing the original ARM design of 1985 to those of today’s latest microprocessors … how far design has come and what EDA has contributed to enabling … systems, hardware, operating systems, and applications.” Then Muller plans to talk about 2020, how to get there, and what it will be like when we do. Conclusion? This stuff’s better heard in person than tape delayed. Go to the opening session, and plan not to regret it.

The CEDA Distinguished Speaker Series continues with a presentation on Digital Analog Design from Mark Horowitz, chairman of Stanford University’s Electrical Engineering Department, that will be held during this year’s Design Automation Conference (DAC).

In his lunchtime talk, scheduled for Tuesday, June 5, from 11:45 a.m.-1:30 p.m. in Room #303 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Professor Horowitz will outline how analog tools can be more like digital design tools. It is open to all DAC attendees on a first-come, first-served basis.
