Adventures in EDA Land

How EDA and Disneyland May Have More In Common Than You Think

Did you ever consider that EDA is a lot like Disneyland? I know it may sound a little kooky but check out this week’s Fish Fry to find out more! I interview Shawn McCloud (Vice President of Marketing – Calypto Design Services) about Catapult-C’s transition to Calypto, the ambiguous nature of the term ESL, and what Calypto brings to the EDA party.  Also this week, I interview Shishpal Rawat (Accellera Chair) about why it’s important to have IP standards and where he sees  IP and system design standards headed.

I’ve got a special twist for you in this week’s Nerdy Giveaway, but you’ll have to tune in to see what it is and how to win.
