Tools, Takeovers, Trivia, and EDA in the Icahn Era

Fish Fry - February 11, 2011

In my Fish Fry this week, I explore the EDA landscape and attempt to discover what the future will hold for the industry. I investigate a new one stop shopping method of marketing in the FPGA world and I also delve into the historical importance of engineering pioneer Ken Olsen.  Also this week, I check out a new truly unique breakthrough in medical technology and award yet another winner in my series of nerdy giveaways.  

If you like the idea of this new series, be sure to drop a comment in the box below. I appreciate all of your comments so far, and we will be working to enhance the Fish Fry each week – as long as you’re watching.
