Daniel Payne has just written a SemiWiki blog post about using a schematic capture and spice tool on an iPad. His observations are interesting, and his conclusion is that touch-based EDA doesn’t work as well for him as a mouse-driven interface. There may be other issues as well such as screen resolution and CPU performance. Payne’s post made me wonder—what do others think about tablet-based EDA tools?
Well, what do you think?
