The Design Automation Conference 2011

Gary Smith, The Return of the Woz, and Other Fun Stuff

In this week’s Fish Fry, I dish the dirt on this year’s Design Automation Conference.  I attempt to unravel the mysteries posed by Gary Smith in his annual EDA analysis, and re-hash both the awesome and the uncomfortable moments of this year’s Steve Wozinak keynote.

Also this week, I give some details on the history of the Design Automation Conference, why there don’t seem to be as many attendees as in years past, and why it’s so hard to navigate the show floor.  

Don’t miss out on your chance to win a Lattice ECP3 Versa Development Kit. You’ll have to listen to find out how you can win it.
