Baby Got DAC

The Design Automation Conference Returns to the City by the Bay

Do you know the way to San Francisco? Do you know the way to rows and rows of obscure interesting and innovative point tools? In this week’s Fish Fry, we examine two sides of the multi-faceted ecosystem that is the Design Automation Conference – EDA and IC. On the EDA side, we chat with Chris Porter and Salem Kapetanovic from IBM about how EDA can leverage the Cloud in a whole new way. On the integrated circuit side of DAC life, we chat with eSilicon CEO Jack Harding about how eSilicon is bringing eCommerce to IC design and why IP MarketPlace should be your next stop on the way to GDS11. Also this week, we unveil Amelia’s top five things you may have missed at DAC. (Spoiler alert: DAC Attendees apparently don’t know how to play Jenga™.)
