Dave Maliniak, one of the workhorses at Electronic Design, dropped us a line today to point out that he actually took over the Test and Measurement beat at the magazine back in January. Totally missed that one.
While I know that means the perennially swamped Maliniak didn't need another bit of work to do (he also covers EDA), the combination actually makes some sense. Design automation is becoming more of a backend issue and there are some technologies coming down the pike, outside of both T&M and EDA that are going to dramatically alter those industry landscapes. This makes ED a good bet for seeing the bigger picture. That, is if Dave can survive the load and ED can start boosting revenue.
I'm working on it, Dave.
