So, as customer after customer visited the ChipEstimate booth on Oct. 1 (a tool for early chip planning as well as providing huge easy access to 1000's of IPs from 100's of 3rd party vendors for chip proto-building) during the very successful Power Forward Initiative (PFI) event in San Jose, California, there was one recurring theme: "I hate spreadsheets."
Actually, there were many variations:
Customer 1: "I hate updating old spreadsheets."
Customer 2: "I hate looking for old spreadsheets."
Customer 3: "I hate consolidating spreadsheets. Especially ones that aren't mine."
Customer 4: "I hate stupid spreadsheets with garbage inaccurate estimations."
Customer 5: "I hate spreadsheets that lie to me. My chip was much bigger! It screwed me!"
... and more and more!
Customers said this mostly after checking out ChipEstimate's InCyte chip planning offerings, impressed with the slick sweet interface that helps do away with inefficient clumsy spreadsheet(s) and other manual ways of calculating stuff up front. An EDA tool with a user-friendly interface - impossible! If you're doing early chip estimations with spreadsheets now and feeling some pain, I'd recommend checking out the cool stuff ChipEstimate is doing by downloading a free trial version here (you need to register to activate, it just takes a few minutes to get the password, pretty easy):
