Exhibitors at the Design Infrastructure Alley at DAC 2018

Hot Off The Presses!

This year’s DAC will have the Design Infrastructure Alley, a section of DAC devoted to the infrastructure required to design chips and systems.  The premise for the DIA is pretty simple:

Every year we get together at DAC to talk about new tools and new methods to create more complex chips and systems.  But we never talk about the infrastructure needed to use these new methods and tools.  The Design Infrastructure Alley bridges the gap between potential and execution and allows IT Professionals, Engineers and EDA Suppliers to have a conversation about how best to enable Design.

In support of this vision, I’m excited to share with you the list of suppliers who have already signed up for exhibition space in the DIA.  There are several more “in the pipeline” who I can’t mention quite yet, but when we get them, this page will be updated!
