Let me be among the first in the Cadence "blogger corps" to welcome Richard Goering to the team. Anyone who has been involved in EDA in the past 20 years surely knows and respects Richard.
Personally, I spent about 10 of those years in Design, Verification, and CAD management, where I always read Richard's articles and columns for their keen insight into the tools I used or should consider using. The last 10 years I've worked in Applications and Marketing for EDA vendors, trying my best to get Richard to report on the tools and IP that we offered while surviving his penetrating and often tough questions during press briefings.
I'm sure that I speak for many at Cadence when I say that he is a most welcome addition to our staff and that I look forward to reading his thoughts on a regular basis. Please check out Richard's "Industry Insights" blog and let him know what you think.
The truth is out there...sometimes it's in a blog
