re: CoFluent helps Intel with virtual platform creation

Yes - it is interesting. This is that murky area where EDA, embedded systems and software development are on a collision course. When a virtual platform is created that enables someone to develop code for a processor yet to be released, or to maximize performance on an existing platform, or to be able to perform development on an emulation of another machine, tools are needed for the creation of that model. I doubt if Intel would see selling the tool as a commercial venture, in the long term, but the EDA companies are building and selling exactly the same capability.

Not a problem. I thought Intel not commenting was a good reason to run the story :-) As you say, Intel has now provided a bit more insight. But I am not sure this means Intel is getting into the EDA tools business. More that CoFluent is getting out and becoming an in-house support.

Yes I did. At that time CoFluent had said that Intel was making no statements about the acquisition or their intentions for it. The statement on the website, which was not there a week ago, gives more insight into Intel's intentions. I do apologize for not putting a link into your original article. I am still getting the hang of this.

Hi Brian, Nice work picking up on the Intel customer notification about the CoFluent acquisition. But didn't you spot that we ran the CoFluent story a week ago? http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4226946/Report-Intel-acquires-CoFluent

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
