An Invitation to EDA vendors to join Design Technology Committee Meeting at DAC
May 27th, 2011 by Thomas Harms, Chair Design Technology Committee, IEEE Council on EDA
An Open letter to the EDA industry:
The Design Technology Committee (DTC) invites EDA vendors to join us for a meeting at DAC to share with you the results of our study groups on EDA gaps and requirements requiring your near-term attention in the areas of the digital implementation flow and functional verification.
DTC Study Groups
For this purpose, the DTC had established two study groups to detail our common EDA gaps and requirements requiring your near-term attention in the areas of the digital implementation flow and functional verification.
A first set of results is now available.
We want to invite you to join the DTC for a meeting at DAC to share with you our motivation and background for this activity as well as to review these results. We then want to discuss concrete next steps/ actions how to address these gaps and requirements. The near-term goal is to review your progress at a meeting during ICCAD in November.
This meeting is open to EDA vendors active in these two design flow areas.
This meeting is not to discuss technical details but to create an alignment for common next steps and to identify concrete actions.
The results of both study groups will be presented in the DAC User Track as well.
Please contact me for the current results and background information for your review prior to the meeting.
Thank you and best regards,
