Without the slightest bit of exaggeration, the month of April was eventful for all of us at the ESD Alliance. We hosted two well-attended events and announced a memorandum of understanding where the ESD Alliance will become a SEMI Strategic Association Partner.
Just like many of our members, we are busy preparing for DAC. We’ll have more on our DAC plans in a few weeks, including details on DAC’s new Design Infrastructure Alley, an initiative from the ESD Alliance and Derek Magill of the Association of High-Performance Computing Professionals.
Meanwhile, I invite you to visit the ESD Alliance website for updates. Photos from the CEO Outlook are posted under Resources. The video from the panel discussion is available now as is a two-minute preview of the video for non-members. As you’ll see in the video, panelists were Arm’s Simon Segars, Dean Drako of IC Manage, Wally Rhines from Mentor, a Siemens Business, and Sonics’ Grant Pierce, all ESD Alliance board members. Ed Sperling, editor-in-chief of Semiconductor Engineering, served as moderator at the evening hosted by member company Cadence Design Systems.
