Springtime in the SoC

Audio IP, Static Analysis and Board Member Switch-a-roo

In honor of the Design Automation Conference that is less than a month away, I take a little foray into the mysterious land of tools. First up, I chat with Henk Hamoen (Synopsys) about how Synopsys is working its way into audio IP, and then it’s an interview with Mark Zarins of GrammaTech about static code analysis and why your level of comfort in dealing with abstraction is important to them. Finally, I have a special “News You May Have Missed” segment about some recent rumblings on the Mentor Graphics Board of Directors.

Also this week, I have a brand new nerdy giveaway (a TI MSP-EXP430FR5739 Experimenter Board) courtesy of Mouser to throw your way, but you’ll have to tune in to find out how to win.
