There are some really clever (funny and/or educational) videos out there on the Internet created by EDA and electronic companies, and then there are some eye-wateringly bad ones...
I was chatting with a friend earlier today about the videos created by EDA and Electronic companies. In the past, the folks at Cadence were leaders of the pack (in my humble opinion). For example, I still recall the first time I saw their award-winning Amadeus Offering from 1989 (you can’t help but grin at the dig at Mentor Graphics early in this little beauty).
This was a brilliant parody on the motion picture Amadeus that completely blew me away – goodness only knows what it cost. Good Grief! I can’t believe it was created in 1989 – that's twenty-one years ago as I pen these words. Where does the time go?
More recently (and again this is only my humble opinion), I think that the guys and gals at Altium have taken the lead with regard to amusing yet informative video offerings, such as their Dave Goes Nuts skit that always brings a smile to my face.
The point is that I was amazed to discover that my friend hadn't seen either of these little beauties, which made me think that perhaps I should share them again as shown below.
