Innovation In EDA

Each year, EDN magazine has a contest to select the most innovative electronic design products: EDN 2010 Innovation Award finalists:Are you inspired?

The nominees in EDA Tools and ASIC Technologies are

  • Calibre InRoute, Mentor Graphics. (is this Mentor's answer to Synopsys IC Validator, a winner from last year?)
  • DRC+, GlobalFoundries
  • PathFinder, Apache Design Solutions
  • SoftPatch for RocketVision, GateRocket Inc

Looking back at 2010 EDN Innovation Award winners, there were multiple categories of EDA-related awards, and thus many more EDA nominees. From each category, the winners were

  • Quartus II Version 9.1 FPGA-design tool, Altera
  • IC Validator in-design physical-verification solution, Synopsys
  • Virtuoso Accelerated Parallel Simulator, Cadence Design Systems
