Toolin’ Around

Tools are the name of the game this week. From Synopsys’s acquisition of Taiwanese EDA company SpringSoft to the remarkable debugging capabilities of Vennsa Technologies. This week my guest is Andreas Veneris (CEO – Vennsa). Andreas and I chat about what their flow looks like, how Vennsa fits into Gary Smith’s vision of the future of EDA, and how debugging is going to be more important than ever on your next design. I also talk with Andreas about his former life as a rock journalist and who he thinks was the most fun rockstar to interview.

Also this week, I have another XMEGA-A3BU Xplained kit (courtesy of Atmel) to give away, but you’ll have to listen to find out how to win this super cool microcontroller development kit.
