  • Aldec is Celebrating 30 Years @ #51DAC!

    Dr. Stanley Hyduke founded Aldec in 1984 and their first product was delivered in 1985, named SUSIE (Standard Universal Simulator for Improved Engineering), a gate-level, DOS-based simulator. The SUSIE simulator was priced lower than other EDA vendor tools from the big three: Daisy, Mentor and Valid (aka DMV). Today, Aldec EDA tools are used to design, simulate and verify FPGA, ASIC, SoC and embedded system designs. There are over 35,000 users of Aldec tools with distribution in over 43 countries. Aldec remains one of the few privately-held EDA companies with a 30 year history, while in that same time period the EDA industry has seen literally hundreds of smaller companies get acquired by larger ones.

    Aldec will sponsor DAC’s annual Monday Night Networking Reception (SemiWiki will sponsor Tuesday’s reception). All registered DAC Attendees and Exhibitors are invited to join and celebrate Aldec’s 30 Year Anniversary with free cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, cupcakes and prizes. CUPCAKES!!!!
