Additionally, Cadence Design Systems, Inc. announced that it has delivered source code for the OpenAccess reference database implementation to the OpenAccess Coalition. The delivery of the code will allow electronics companies to more quickly and easily create integrated design flows of tools from multiple vendors and internal technology. Si2's Schulz said, “The OpenAccess Coalition expects to make the database source code freely available to design engineers worldwide in our open-community source program via OpenEDA.org in early January 2003.”

DAC 2003 - With the money you've saved by attending virtual tradeshows, you can then make it to Anaheim for the Design Automation Conference. The Happiest Place on Earth will be hosting DAC 2003 from June 2nd to the 6th. You'll be able to divide your time between the Anaheim Convention Center and the granddaddy of all amusement parks just down the street, Disneyland. (Check out the new California Grand Hotel done up in Craftsman style, a la Yosemite's Ahwanhee Lodge - very cool in a Magic Kingdom kind of way.)
Last year's DAC in New Orleans suffered a somewhat reduced attendance for a variety of reasons - the economy, the economy, and the economy. Now pent-up demand for the conference and all its carryings-on, promises a large and animated attendance in 2003. Conference organizers will be offering more than 50 Technical Sessions, the labyrinthine Demo Suites, and a wild and endlessly entertaining Exhibition Hall. Currently, over 200 companies in EDA, IP, and silicon design are planning to be there. You should plan to be there as well. (

Then lean back, watch the snow fall, and listen to the sax -
