OK, now that the Design Automation Conference (DAC) seems to be rotating among San Francisco, San Diego, and Anaheim, there's not too much "hitting the road" for us Silicon Valley denizens. We either drive an hour north to SF or fly an hour south to SoCal. This year DAC is in Anaheim, where I've just arrived and attended a very nice opening reception.
I'll admit that I had grown a bit tired of going to DAC for a few years, but last year I had a great time with the first-ever OVM World booth. This year I'll be equally busy at the first-ever OVM-UVM booth, which celebrates the easy transition from the OVM to the new Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) from Accellera.
But I'll also be spending time at the Cadence booth, which is much bigger and more striking than we have had in recent memory. I'll be presenting suite updates on our verification solution and talking on the floor about how verification fits into the Silicon Realization aspect of the EDA360 vision. You can also see a demo of Cadence rools running the UVM.
So please stop by the Cadence booth, or the OVM-UVM booth, or catch me at the Denali party, or the big DAC party, or just walking around the floor. Here's to DAC #23 for me, one that I think I'm really going to enjoy with all the buzz around the UVM, the renewed Cadence presence, and EDA360.
The truth is out there...sometimes it's in a blog.
