Richard Goering is well-known from his editorial days at EE Times (going back some 25 years), now at Cadence he blogs at least once a week on EDA topics that touch Cadence tools.
Before DAC he talked with Srinath Anantharaman about how Cadence tools work together with ClioSoft tools to keep IC Design Data Management Simple.

In my rush on Wednesday at DAC I had almost over-looked the last two companies I talked with: Invarian and AnaGlobe. These last two I had hand-written notes on paper, so I just got to the bottom of my inbox tonight to write up the final trip reports.
Jens Andersen and Vladimir Schellbach gave me an overview of tools that perform… Read More
Show me what has changed in my RTL or Schematic since the last time I looked. This task is now automated by Cliosoft with their new hierarchical tool called Visual Design Difference (VDD). Srinath showed me what was new for DAC.
LSI, STMicro – use DesignSync for their DM but use VDD for seeing visual… Read More
The 48[SUP]th[/SUP] Design Automation Conference (DAC) is now upon us. DAC is billed as “the premier event for the design of electronic circuits and systems, and for EDA and silicon solutions” for which I would have to agree with 100%.
The first DAC I attended was in 1984, Albuquerque New Mexico, which was one of the first to allow … Read More
Cadence and ClioSoft made a webinar recently and I’ll summarize what I learned from it.

The Rapid Prototyping Platform and Virtual System Platform are what’s new, and they intend to enable and automate concurrent hardware and software development. I can remember Mentor… Read More
On Friday I talked with Srinath Anantharaman by phone to gain some perspective on Hardware Configuration Management (HCM) versus Software Configuration Management (SCM), especially as it applies to the IC design flows in use today. In the 1990’s we both worked at Viewlogic in Fremont, CA and in 1997 Srinath founded… Read More
Cadence at DesignCon 2011
I met with Rahul Deokar, Product Manager this morning to review 9 slides that tell the story of Giga-gates and GigaHz systems design at Cadence. Their updated P&R system now completes jobs 2X faster for 28nm designs.
Silicon Realization Trends and Challenges:
Silicon Realization – end to end digital… Read More
EDA360 in PC Todayby Paul McLellan on 01-10-2011 at 8:29 pmCategories: Cadence, EDA
At the EDAC CEO panel, Daniel pointed out that he used EDA360 as a good introduction to non-specialists (e.g. financial sector). I just discovered today that the cover article of PC Today is by John Bruggeman (well, Cadence) about EDA360. Having some idea of just how difficult it is to get that sort of specialist article into a general… Read More
EDA is DEADby Daniel Nenni on 05-23-2009 at 12:12 amCategories: EDA
Years ago I bought my ancestral home, the house where my beloved grandparents lived, the place in which I grew up. It was more an emotional investment than a financial one, much more. After completely renovating it with my keyboard hardened hands, reliving much of my childhood, I joined the ranks of the slum lords and rented the house… Read More
