What Can a Wiki do for EDA?

January 23rd, 2011 by Daniel Payne

screen-shot-2011-01-23-at-71724-pmFellow EDA blogger Daniel Nenni has introduced me to the concept of the Wiki applied to EDA. So, just what is a Wiki?

Well, according to wikipedia:

A wiki (play /ˈwɪki/ WIK-ee) is a website that allows the creation and editing of any number of interlinked web pages via a web browser using a simplified markup language or a WYSIWYG text editor.

Daniel Nenni, PaulMcLellan, Eric Esteve and I have joined forces to blog about the EDA and semiconductor IP industry over at

We’ve organized wikis by:

Let’s say that you were interested to see and contribute to the list of all known EDA mergers and acquisitions since 1985, there’s a Wiki page just for that. Read it, contribute to it, tell your EDA colleagues about it.

There’s nothing else quite like SemiWiki and we hope to see you visit and register today.
