57DAC in SFO

My first DAC was in 1987 so I’ve seen our industry expand greatly over the years, and I expect that #57DAC on July 19-23, 2020 in SFO to be another exciting event to attend for semiconductor professionals from around the globe. What makes DAC so compelling for me to visit are the people, exhibitors, panel discussions, technical… Read More


WEBINAR: PAVE360 Validating Autonomous Vehicle Behavior

WEBINAR: PAVE360 Validating Autonomous Vehicle Behavior
by Daniel Nenni on 10-21-2019 at 6:00 am

Siemens Mentor recently announced PAVE360™, a very cool comprehensive pre silicon simulation environment. Autonomous cars are very popular here in Silicon Valley and quite safe on the highways since the average speed is 25mph (horrible traffic). In the city you need autonomous parking unless you want to waste precious time … Read More
