Camposano & Zelnik: Sage-DA promotes EDA Evangelism

Thursday, August 27th, 2015

 

Blogs are a dime-a-dozen, but you’re going to want to read this one if you want to know why distinguished veterans of EDA continue to evangelize for the viability and vitality of the industry.

On a phone call this week with Raul Camposano, newly-minted CEO of Sage Design Automation, and Coby Zelnik, President and Co-founder of the company, the point was driven home repeatedly: There’s as much of a future in EDA as there is a past, no matter what the current demographics may imply. Evolving demand in the CAD-tool marketplace means EDA companies will continue to emerge to meet that demand.

EDAC CEO Panel: Practically perfection

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

 

From the podium in San Jose’s DoubleTree Hotel, Jasper Design Automation President & CEO Kathryn Kranen introduced tonight’s EDAC CEO Forecast Event as being “practically perfection” and she was right. With 97 people in the room, the event ran for 97 minutes and the audience [undoubtedly] gave the panel discussion a 97% approval rating. Kudos to all involved, including EDAC for hosting, and OCP-IP, Mod Marketing, and the DoubleTree for sponsoring the event.

Kranen started off the evening by bragging on good news out of EDA: It’s up and to the right for revenue in the industry, with a 4.9 percent increase between 3Q11 and 3Q12. She cited increased stock valuations over the last year for ARM [37%], Cadence [30%], Mentor [26%], PDF Solutions [98%], and Synopsys [17%] as an indication of the viability of EDA as an investment vehicle: If you’d put $100 into each of these companies a year ago, she said, you would have netted a 41% increase in a portfolio today worth $706.90, beating out other investment indices such as the NASDAQ and S&P 100 over the same time period.

Kathryn Kranen: the paradigm shifts at EDAC

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

 

Stop the presses! Someone other than the CEO of Mentor, Synopsys, or Cadence is going to be the Chair of EDAC.

What? Has the world come to an end?

Nope, but it turns out that even staid EDAC has, at last, learned how to innovate. It turns out that Mentor, Synopsys, and Cadence have, at least, seen the light and decided that they shouldn’t always be at the head of the class. As of yesterday, May 31st, there’s a new Chair at EDAC and it’s Kathryn Kranen, President & CEO at Jasper Design Automation.

Kathryn, of course, is well known within the EDA community. She’s been CEO at Jasper since 2003. Prior to Jasper, Kathryn was CEO of Verisity Design, and earlier on served as VP of North American sales at Quickturn. At the outset of her career, after earning a BSEE at Texas A&M, she worked as a design engineer at Rockwell, and then joined Daisy Systems in advance of her role at Quickturn.

In addition, Kathryn was named the 2005 recipient of the Marie R. Pistilli Woman in EDA Achievement Award, and has been an extremely hard working member of the Board of Directors of EDAC for many years.

I am personally elated at the news, and wish Kathryn all the best!
