"If we don't have a plan, we're no better than the French," as they say LOL

Planning is mandatory for business success. Fail to plan and you plan to fail.

This is funny Max. Even when I was working as EVE China's Country Manager (EVE is a French company as you know), I had to present a big plan on what I would do about setting up the subsidiary in China, how to engage with Chinese customers, how to market our products etc before I was given the job. So even the French like to plan :). Unfortunately I didn't plan for the Synopsys acqusition LOL.

Yes planning is very important, especially for a complex task. You'd be surprised to see how many teams just jump into doing formal without much planning and as a result fail to see the benefits of formal and fail to adopt it successfully in the verification flow. That's why we have been emphasizing on the importance of formal test planning, we talked about it in our DAC Insight Tutorial session and do in all of engagements. We would love to see every project using formal being successful, it has to start from good planning.

This sums things up nicely.

@Jin@Oski: Unfortunately I didn't plan for the Synopsys acqusition LOL.

I can't recall how many acquisitions I've seen since I started in this industry -- it woudl be very interesting to see a three-dimensional image showing the time-lines associated with the various EDA companies and how they's all intermingled and evolved...

@Max,

The T&M Designline quiz for August 31 is about acquisitions in that business. Enjoy.

Yes that would be very interesting and insightful! I would love to know about the history of all the acqusitions and what happended to the technology after that, could be a great book :)

@Jin: Yes that would be very interesting and insightful!

Have you ever seen one of those posters showing how various rock-and-roll groups formed and then either renamed themselves or split up and the members joined other groups and so forth -- it really is interesting to see how this developed over time -- and I think the same would be true of EDA companies...

No I have not seen those posters but I can see what you are thinking of in my head. This would be a great project! Shouldn't be too hard to dig up all the data and have a designer create a poster that shows the evolution of EDA.

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.
