Blogging in EDA has its rewards and last night was a real treat as Synopsys provided a superb dinner experience at Mr. Stox in Anaheim.

Editors, Bloggers and Synopsys folks enjoy socializing

The fabled wine cellar, one bottle had a tag of $16,000 (no, we didn’t order it)

I chatted with:

  • Harry the ASIC Guy
  • Yvette Huygen Deshpande, Synopsys – Director Worldwide PR
  • Joe Desposito, Electronic Design – Editor in Chief
  • Frank Schirmeister, Synopsys – Director Product Marketing, Solutions Group
  • Karen Bartleson, Synopsys – Sr Director, Community Marketing
  • Dr. Johannes Stahl, Synopsys – Director Product Marketing, Solutions Group
  • Farhad Hayat, Synopsys – Sr. Director, Product Marketing, Analog Mixed-Signal
  • Janick Bergeron, Synopsys – Fellow
  • Sheryl Gulizia, Synopsys – Worldwide PR Manager
  • Rick Nelson, EDN – Editor in Chief

What a great way to get introduced to people in the EDA industry that make the news and read our blogs and magazines. We had a delightful time together.
