Aart de Geus, Technomics and #53DAC

Aart de Geus, Technomics and #53DAC
by Daniel Payne on 05-29-2016 at 8:00 pm

The number one EDA+IP vendor in our industry today is Synopsys, and their eloquent leader is Aart de Geus, so I expect that the Monday interview at #53DAC on June 6th will be well attended and worthwhile to witness in the DAC Pavilion, start time is 11:30AM, so arrive early to get a seat. One of Aart’s coined words is Technomics, the intersection of technology and economics, something quite relevant to Moore’s Law and the predictions of new silicon technology that is smaller, faster, lower power and cheaper to buy.

The Booth
One of the largest booths at DAC this year is from Synopsys, and in their theatre area you will enjoy hearing topics about:

  • Industry trends
  • FinFET
  • IoT
  • Automotive market

Special Events
There are eight events that you may choose to register for and attend, many of them with partners from the foundry and IP side of the business. I’ll be attending the circuit simulation luncheon on Monday.

Registration is required, just click the links above to get the process started.

Conference Sessions
Technologists will want to attend the dozens of conference sessions planned for Monday through Thursday at DAC this year. These sessions are presented by engineers at companies like:

Partners & Standards
No EDA or IP vendor is an island, so having partners and using standards means that your technology fits into more flows. You’ll find Synopsys at DAC collaborating with many companies: Accellera

  • ARM
  • ChipEstimate.com
  • GLOBALFOUNDRIES
  • Samsung
  • SMIC
  • TSMC

Conclusion
You may have noticed the new tagline for Synopsys this year: Silicon to Software.DAC is certainly the biggest event for Synopsys on the silicon and semiconductor IP side of the business, however there are other conferences that they attend for the software side of the business.
