The companies using unlicensed software to make the products should be fined in a big way. They are exploiting the intellectual property and handwork of other companies making EDA tools.

This is great news for the EDA industry, we simply cannot allow customers to get away using Free software when they know that it should be paid for.

This is a good sign but I'm guessing ZTE is not alone in this area. This sounds like a "sting."

Good for AWR - and give that geek who thought up and included the phone-home feature a bone or two. ZTE also tipped their hand at an AWR technical forum IIRC by asking advanced AWR tech questions when they did not have an AWR license. Question: what other software packages has ZTE been pirating? It would be more meaningful if the court could order a ban against ZTE selling into the US and or EU for several years to get their like-minded friends attention.

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.
