I enjoy attending these conferences, you make really good contacts here.Although everyone just sells their stuff but its good learning.

I would be interested in attending Chicago or Boston or the 2012 Silicon Valley show if there is more chip design (SoC or FPGA) content. Most of the semi action when I was last there (2008) was oriented towards system-level designers (I don't mean ESL!). Mentor has always been there, with its Embedded Systems division, but it was Cadence introducing their System Development Suite that got me curious about how the ESC focus has changed.

To me, from the perspective of my booth, I'd say it's pretty evenly matched between hardware and software with (this year) a small percentage of T-rex mixed in.

I used to visit ESC in San Jose every year from late 90's until the post-Y2K tech bubble burst. Back then, it was an excellent mixture of semiconductors, systems, hardware, OS software, dev tools, and services. I haven't been to one for a decade; glad to hear it hasn't morphed into mostly software and dev tools from the predominantly semi theme it had back then. It reminds me of the now defunct, ostensibly named "Ottawa Hi-Tech Show" in my city. Towards its final years, there was a distinct thinning of the exciting semiconductor and systems presenters. I stopped going when I began to see it as the "Ottawa Connector Show".

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
