EDA pins hope on open-source efforts

Author: JT Smith

"Panelists included noted open-source licensing guru and senior global strategist for OpenSource at
Hewlett-Packard Bruce Perens, Synopsys vice president of strategic market development Rich Goldman, and
Open SystemC chairman and Cadence Design Systems vice president of business operations Stan Krolikoski
all outlined how open-sourcing can be effective in creating viable and fair standards that address the
interoperability problem.

Perens urged industry to participate in and only tolerate true open-source efforts. Doing so, said Parens,
allows several sources to participate in quickly creating standards that will be more agreeable to all parties
and more responsive as needs change." More at EETimes.
