From SPICE Netlist back to Schematics at DAC

From SPICE Netlist back to Schematics at DAC
by Daniel Payne on 06-11-2012 at 5:22 pm

I first heard about SPICE Vision Pro when working at Mentor Graphics where we needed a way to visualize SPICE netlists and debug SPICE simulation results node by node on a design where we didn’t have the original schematics. Last Monday I met the engineers from Concept Engineering in their booth at DAC to get an update, Gerhard… Read More

I moderated a panel on partitioning today and I have to say that I learned some things. The panelists were Jonathan DeMent from IBM, Santosh Santosh from NVIDIA and Hao Nham of eSilicon. Considering the different types of designs being done their approach to partitioning and the reasons for doing so were very similar.

I blogged several times over the last few weeks about places in San Francisco other than DAC at the Moscone Center. Since they are now spread all over the site it is not so easy to find them. So here they are again all in one place.

by Paul McLellan on 06-01-2012 at 5:00 pm

Bill Deegan has produced a new version of his iPhone DAC app for this years conference. You can download it for free from the Apple App Store here. It is basically a mobile version of the DAC conference brochure with schedules for the various events (which it can add to your calendar if you decide you are interested) and the floorplan… Read More
