EDA All Around

DVCon, Aldec Meets Hitatchi, and Parties Galore

In honor of DVCon this week, we’re rounding up all the verification jokes we can muster. “I just finished verifying my multicores and boy are my ARMs tired.” Or maybe: “How many verification engineers does it take to change a lightbulb?” “None, of course – but they will be able to confirm that the bulb has actually been changed.” Or how about: “Seriously folks – take my dev-kit… Please!”

In Fish Fry this week, we’re looking at the themes, parties, and verification technologies at DVCon 2013. Keeping with the EDA theme, I also chat with Dmitry Melnick (Aldec) about the details of Aldec’s recent collaboration with Hitatchi and why he thinks traditional coding styles are no longer adequate for our multi-million gate FPGA designs.

I have a Microchip chipKIT Educational Starter Pack to give away (courtesy of Newark element14) to one lucky listener this week.
