Bruggeman Exits Cadence and Forte Makes a Claim for High Level Synthesis

In this week’s Fish Fry, I interview Sean Dart (Forte Design Systems CEO) about where he sees the future of SoC design and how high level synthesis will play a part in the years to come. 

I also try to sort through the details of John Bruggeman’s recent departure from Cadence Design Systems as Chief Marketing Officer and investigate how this shift will affect the future of Cadence’s EDA360 manifesto.

I have a DE0-Nano Development Board to give out this week, but you’ll have to tune in to find out how to win.
