Below are some snapshots of some "day 0" events, and last minute DAC preparations.
Evidence of growing SystemC tide: it was an amazingly beautiful Sunday here in Anaheim -- perfect beach weather. However, ~50 creators & integrators were hunkered down taking notes at the NASCUG meeting.
Graphics being mounted to the Cadence booth. (Suffice to say, our booth looks really sharp this year -- I'll wait until tomorrow to post a full picture so as not to spoil the surprise).
Putting the finishing touches on the Palladium XP demo
Pokens presorted and ready to be distributed to their new owners. It's not too late to sign up for one! http://www.cadence.com/dac2010/pages/poken.aspx
Over 16 different Pokens to choose from. For the record, I went with the vampire Poken. (Some say, "Cliche."; I say, "Classic!")
The OVM-UVM booth; ready to go! (Multi-vendor partnership in action: with the exception of customer meetings in the Cadence booth, I'll actually be on duty here during the show.)
