Not Your Mama’s DAC

In this week’s Fish Fry, I check out the 2012 Design Automation Conference in San Francisco, California. But we’re not just covering the wide range of EDA tools at the show. Oh no, we’re checking out the village that is the Design Automation Conference. To add another layer of excitement, we’ve got not one but three C-Level interviews to throw your way, starting with the foundry guys who use EDA tools (Jack Harding, CEO – eSilicon), then on to the VHDL parser platforms that practically every EDA company uses (Michiel Ligthart, COO, Verific) and finally to the guys who break things for a living (Adnan Hamid CEO, Breker Technologies).

Also this week, I’m giving away a XMEGA-A3BU Xplained kit (courtesy of Atmel) but you’ll have to tune in to find out how to win.
