(By “The Standards Game” I mean me – as President of the IEEE Standards Association, I’m exposed to all kinds of opportunities. Too bad I’m only one person as I’d like to participate in all of […]

Welcome to 2013 – no standards wars, please

2012 was relatively quiet in The Standards Game. At least for EDA, that is. Perhaps we as an industry have matured to the level of “Cooperate on Standards, Compete on Products”. I, for one, hope that peace continues to prevail in the standards arena in EDA and that no one has to be sent to […]
