There is an EDA application that runs on Apple Inc.'s iPhone.
The application, known as iWafer, was created by Michael Sanie, a 20-year EDA and semiconductor industry veteran.
The application provides estimates for die size, yield, good die per wafer, and price per good die, for process nodes from 0.6 micron to 45 nm on wafer sizes from 150 mm to 300 mm.
Sanie claimed about 100 downloads for the application. He believes that iWafer is the only EDA or semiconductor industry-specific application available for the iPhone.
Sanie has held executive and senior marketing positions at Calypto, Cadence Design Systems, Numerical Technologies and Actel, among others.
Sanie was also the co-author of "EDA 3.0: So you are an EDA startup?", an opinion piece about EDA startups, their challenges, and growth opportunities.
I blogged about that too.
"I don't look at it as a money maker," Sanie said. "It's more like a little bit of fun for me. But I do get some satisfaction from the positive feedback I've received."
Fun is good! Got any fun EDA things to share?
