    ASML in the list

    I added ASML to the list. With their 'Computational Lithography' tools they are now is the EDA world; competing with a part of the Mentor Calibre suite.

    Great work Daniel, and thanks for opening it !

    For an example of how to turn this into a more visual appealing graph: Éric Lévénez's site for the unix and language timelines. This probably is a simple use of AT&T graphviz, I can probably give a hand with the scriptology if necessary. Of course it would be nice to have dates added, to obtain this kind of layout.

    Another extension that may just be nice-to-have: follow the toolsets that stay out of EDA even if they clearly belong to the field, for example tekspice/Querc/quickic/ADS are still used at Maxim; and follow the toolsets that spin out of semicon and end up in EDA, like K2 Chameleon out of TI. That would show what survives while ignored by corporate EDA. It would also add insight into what kind of software come from pure startup as opposed to spinoffs.

    Yes, a visual approach is more appealing however we are confined to working within the vBulletin framework for displaying pages at the moment.

    Glad to see CLSI mentioned - first US company I worked for. Still waiting to see what happens to Sonics ;-)

    IIRC , K2 technologies Inc. was spun off Texas Instruments shortly before acquisition by Cadence. I don t know the year; should be somewhere between 1999 and 2001.

    I noticed two things:
    - There is a doublon for Valiosys. The company seems defunct now, with a small part of members and products in Chiastek.
    - Nascentric does not appear, but it seems it was acquired » New Parallel SPICE Start-up Company EDA Thoughts: From an EDA marketing insider

    Again, congrats for this page.
