Qualcomm’s Lu Dai: Energetic leadership for Accellera

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

 


Accellera has just announced that Lu Dai, 
Senior Director of Engineering at Qualcomm, is the new chair of the organization.

Although Intel’s Shishpal Rawat, recently retired from Intel, is a hard act to follow as Accellera Chair given his long, productive years leading the organization, if anyone can do it Lu Dai can. He’s enthusiastic, energetic, optimistic, and an engineer – and not necessarily in that order.

Before talking about Accellera in our phone call this week, Dai spoke about DVCon, anchor tenant of Accellera’s outreach to design and verification engineers around the world. This next week, the Silicon Valley version will unfold in San Jose, with DVCon India happening in September, DVCon Europe in October, and the first-ever DVCon China in April.

Ted Miracco is CEO of SmartFlow Compliance Solutions
, a company based in Los Angeles that provides automated tools to help software vendors combat piracy, copyright infringement, and under-compliance.

The following blog, contributed by Miracco, describes those issues.

The Four Hacking Issues Weighing on the Minds of EDA Executives

I like spending time with executives from the EDA industry, in part because I used to be an executive in that industry. Last fall at the SmartFlow Anti-Piracy Summit, I had conversations with a dozen or so executives and heard a new urgency in their voices for help solving the challenge of unauthorized use of software and semiconductor IP.

DVCon 2017: Lessons in Learning and Life

Thursday, February 2nd, 2017

 


If you’re going to chair a conference
, according to DVCon 2017 General Chair Dennis Brophy, don’t do any work. Instead just delegate, because if you’ve done that properly, the committees will craft a great program and a great gathering.

Hence, per Brophy, this year’s DVCon is going to be great. He’s done nothing, the committees have done everything, and their work has been inspired.

You must bring something to the effort, I insisted.

Brophy chuckled and deflected my question: “I’ll defer to Wally Rhines’ thesis: The learning curve definitely doesn’t stop, even though Moore’s Law is slowing. And there will be a lot of opportunity to learn this year at DVCon.
