The Year DAC Changed Forever

There is so much good DAC material coming out; EDA is hitting critical mass in the blogosphere. There's a new social network site "I Love DAC" that ramping up, where I was delighted to see this flashback from the heydey of EDA: 1991: The Year DAC Changed Forever - The DAC Fan Club. (props to Steve Leibson)

Not only is the video entertaining, but it's a bona fide piece of EDA history. It's also worthwhile to reflect on the promise of Frameworks, still unfulfilled in EDA: seamlessly integrated multi-vendor tool flows. Well, at least it's job security for CAD engineers.
