Just got the latest DACezine providing insight regarding what's coming for the next DAC in San Francisco. It's got two articles/viewpoints from vendors about how important ESL tools are for the future of the EDA industry, a directory of ESL tools, an editorial from the DAC chair on the importance of EDA, a guest editorial from an EDA marcom consultant on how important it is to go to DAC, and some news about what is going on at DAC.
But where is the input from users about DAC, it's relative importance, and customers of ESL tools?
If you think you are a leader, look behind you. If no one is there you are just taking a walk.
