"As the complexity of electronic products increases, it is important for EDA and IP companies to focus their valuable resources on creating the products that meet the needs of designers," said Robert Gardner, executive director of the EDA Consortium. "The EDA Consortium provides the forum for addressing common issues including licensing, software piracy, interoperability, and government regulations as a group, thus benefiting EDAC member companies and their customers."
The EDA Consortium committees, consisting of experts from EDAC member companies, are charged with investigating common issues and reporting to the board on a regular basis. The collective experience of the board members helps direct the committee activities towards beneficial solutions.
The EDA Consortium also represents the interests of EDA vendors at the Design Automation Conference (DAC), and the Design, Automation and Test in Europe (DATE) conference, in addition to publishing the industry's quarterly Market Statistics Service (MSS) report, a detailed report of revenue in the EDA/IP industry broken out by tool category and geographic region.
Nomination forms, candidate statement forms, and additional details are available on the EDAC website, http://www.edac.org, or by calling the EDA Consortium at (408)-287-3322.
