Sunday evening EDAC did something different by trying to entertain the DAC audience with a game show, well it was novel yet I predict a show that will not be repeated. In years gone by EDAC has provided an overview of our industry that was at least informative.

Last night the EDAC event was pre-canned ads for:Mentor, ARM, Analog Bits, Magma, Synopsys, TSMC and Virage.

Even cameo appearances by Cooley and Gary Smith were not enough to revive this dud.

The networking and food were excellent, so much so that at least half of the audience choose to keep networking and eating in the back of the room.
