Lucio on EDA Investment

Kaufmann Award Winner Shares His Thoughts

by Bryon Moyer

So you’ve been toiling away in the depths of the EDA world and you are struck by an idea of monumental brilliance and potential. You drop what you’re doing and go off into a cave for a while to flesh it out to the point where you can solicit a hearty investment by a forward-thinking manager of an aggressive investment fund.

What are your chances?

Interesting example of how a sloppy Q factor can actually be useful.

For those situations where the low Q factor in MEMS isn't so useful (and there are many examples of that) - Crystal is still the answer.

Digital stuff is all representable as FSMs and it should be possible to make that run fast in simulation and formally verify that the implementation is correct. However, there are lots of ana…
