Sean Interviews Rajeev

Though he's not as colorful as Gerry Hsu, Rajeev Madhavan, CEO of Magma Design Automation, is one of the most interesting and outspoken executives in the EDA industry. Check out Sean Murphy's Interview with Rajeev.

Rajeev founded several significant EDA companies, was apparently out-manuvered in the board room at times, and is forthcoming with what he's learned about the EDA industry and building companies.

That WAS an interesting piece - and I did not know that the illustrious Mr. Madhavan started out writing BIST tools!

I had not realized Rajeev had played a key role in starting three companies until I did the research for the interview. I am consistently impressed by the interviews Peggy Aycinena has done in the last decade. Her EDA Confidential site at is somewhat idiosyncratic in its organization but a treasure trove of information.
