Cadence Acquires Forte

Here at Fish Fry, when big news breaks, we swim to it. When the EE landscape changes, we evolve, lose our gills, begin breathing air, and start walking on land. This is one of those weeks. When we got wind that Cadence was in the process of acquiring Forte, we jumped on the chance to get the goods on this groundbreaking news story. My guest this week is Craig Cochran (Vice President, Corporate Marketing at Cadence Design Systems) and we discuss the growing adoption of high level synthesis and how Forte plays into the Cadence system-level design flow. Also this week, we check out how the Hybrid Memory Cube aims to take out DDR, and how FPGAs can help you with your HMC heavy lifting.
