“There’s a shift occurring right now in the electronics industry. It’s not a Cadence shift. It’s not just an EDA shift. It’s a transformation of the entire electronics industry. Systems and semiconductor companies are undergoing a disruptive transformation so profound that every company will be affected, even the biggest and the EDA industry must change to support this transformation.”
“This change is not really about EDA companies developing new design tools or methodologies. It’s not about the functional verification crisis, or the move to electronic system level (ESL) design, or any of the other issues that have dominated discussions about EDA to date. Instead, this is a new vision for what the EDA industry can become. Cadence calls this vision EDA360.”
“EDA360 is a call-to-action for the electronics industry to address this disruptive transformation and to shift its focus from design creation to integration.”
Yesterday, I participated in the EDA Virtual Conference on a panel about “The Next Big Things” in EDA along with Sysopsys’ Frank Schirrmeister, who happens to be very knowledgeable about these things (and a great presenter to boot). The above quote is how I opened my presentation. You probably weren’t there yesterday but nearly 60 people were. However, good news! It’s not too late. You can still hear this presentation in archived form. Click here.
