V for Verification

DVCon 2012 Breakdown

by Amelia Dalton

Welcome to the soothing waters of verification. Jump right in, the water is warm! This week's Fish Fry is all about design verification and DVCon 2012. I sift through all of the details of this year's show: the keynote, the various announcements unveiled at the show, the happy hour expo show hours and even the eerie decor of the Doubletree Hotel.  In a special DVCon interview double header I chat with both Shakeel Jeeawoody (Blue Pearl Software) about getting your constraints right for HDL-based designs, and I also chat with Anupam Bakshi (CEO - Agnisys) about how Agnisys is attacking a brand new part of the EDA/verification market. 

I also have yet another ultra fantastic MAX V CPLD Development kit (courtesy of Altera) to give away this week, but you'll have to tune in to find out how to win.


EDA. FPGA. Semiconductor. Software.

This week's Fish Fry is all about DVCon 2012. I check out the various activities of the show, investigate why the expo show floor was so popular this time around and why I don't really like the Double Tree Hotel in San Jose. Did you attend this year's DVCon? If so, what did you think about the show?

It would be nice to have one of these MAX V Dev. Kits!

I didn't attend the show, so thanks for the coverage. I could also use that Max V kit to prototype an upcoming project.

MAX V CPLD would be a great prototype board for my next low cost design. I'd be very grateful if you let me win this time smiling

It would be nice to have one of these MAX V Dev. Kits. I could learn a lot.
