Happy New Year and all that. I hope that you all took at least some time over the break to relax and reflect on your achievements in 2012. I would have blogged sooner but we had a spot of bother with the Synopsys website. Anyway it’s full steam ahead now.
We got a boost to kick off the year, we received this in the mail
Electronic Design http://electronicdesign.com/ selected the HAPS-70 to receive one of their “Best of 2012” awards. This award recognizes the HAPS-70 Series as an outstanding EDA product by Electronic Design. Selection for such an award is based on great product innovation over the last 12 months, chosen by editorial experts covering EDA. Here is a quote from the Electronic Design website explaining how they select the Best Innovation products to receive the awards.
We rely on the expertise of our staff and contributing editors to ferret out the ‘best’ of the various new technologies, products, and standards that we have seen and wrote about throughout this past year,” said Editor-in-Chief Joe Desposito. “These guys are in the trenches every day covering this industry, and they know about all the great new innovations that have been introduced and what really works!
Here is a picture of the award being held by a very proud Neil Songcuan, Senior Product Marketing Manager for the HAPS systems.
Neil was instrumental in the development of the HAPS-70 driving the major capability definitions. Neil is not a fan of this picture because we sort of threw the award at him and pushed him up against the wall so we could take the picture. Neil said that if he had been given more time he would have brushed his hair 😉
