Semico is proud to partner with the Electronic System Design (ESD) Alliance, formerly known as the EDA Consortium (EDAC).  The group has broadened its scope and will now address the larger design ecosystem, including semiconductor intellectual property (IP), embedded software, advanced packaging for system scaling and service companies that provide design resources.  The ESD Alliance hosts DAC, the Design Automation Conference, each year.  For more information, download this presentation or visit the ESD Alliance at


The SEMICO SPIN is a weekly e-mail newsletter. The Semico Spin presents Semico's analysts' views about the latest news and product announcements in the semiconductor industry and related areas. The Semico Spin is more than reporting, it is an analysis of the significance of the events covered. Semico analysts develop an expertise in the areas that they cover. That expertise is available in every Semico study, but The Semico Spin makes it available every week.
