One of the best things about the Design Automation Conference (DAC) is the ability to hear about design challenges and solutions from other engineers. And one of the best places to do so at the recent DAC 2013 was the Cadence Theater, which featured three full days of customer and partner presentations. Most of these presentations are now available in the form of audio tapes and slides at the Cadence DAC microsite.
Here's your chance to learn from engineers at companies like Freescale, AMD, Broadcom, Texas Instruments, Marvell, Siemens, NXP, and many others. Most of the presentations are 20-30 minutes in length. I attended several and found that most drew standing-room-only crowds, like the session depicted below.
The Tensilica presentation at the Cadence Theater attracted a big crowd of listeners.
I blogged earlier about the Evatronix presentation at the Cadence Theater (held just before Cadence completed its acquisition of Evatronix' IP portfolio). Jack Erickson recently blogged about a very interesting joint presentation including Cadence and high-level synthesis competitor Forte Design Systems.
Audio recordings and slides are available for the following presentations. To access these presentations, click here.
