EDA Crystal Ball

It’s the slow decline of December. We’re wrapping up our projects, toiling away in expense reports, and lining up our ducks for 2013. Speaking of lining up ducks, we’re looking into the future this week – the future of EDA. Where in the heck is the tool market headed next year? How will recent major mergers and acquisitions affect the design tool landscape? My guest is Mike Gianfagna from Atrenta and we’re gonna talk about all of this and more.

Also this week, I unveil the four mathametical equations for the perfect christmas tree, check out a new line of some seriously fancy-schmancy USB drives from Polish company Zana Design (64GB and it’s made from a metorite?!), and give everyone another chance to win a copy of “FRAM for Dummies”.
