  • Attending DAC in Austin for Free

    I've been attending DAC since the late 1980's and can tell you that it's an annual highlight for me and anyone else interested in the EDA, IP and semiconductor industries. Where else can you see most of the big and little vendors of EDA software, semiconductor IP and foundries in one place? I recently blogged about the DAC keynote speakers, and then there's the rich experience of the pavilion presentations. So you'd like to go to DAC, but then the money issue comes up. Is it really worth all of that expense?

    How about free attendance to DAC for all of these events:

    • Four Keynotes
    • 175 Exhibits
    • World of IoT Exhibit
      • IP pavilion
      • Maker's market

    • Pavilion presentations
      • SKY Talks
      • Fireside CEO chats
      • Three teardowns
      • Industry panel discussions

    • Networking
    • Evening receptions


    How can this be offered to us for free? Well, the people at ClioSoft really want you to attend so they are sponsoring your entrance for free as part of the 9th annual campaign - I LOVE DAC.
