As part of our DVCon India 2015 coverage, here is a brief on Nick Heaton, Distinguished Engineer at Cadence Design Systems. Nick Heaton delivered a power-packed keynote with his own memory recollection going back by several decade starting with design engineer. He covered wide range of topics such as performance verification, power analysis and thermal. Nick also touched upon innovation in system design enablement.
Many in the audience related his talks to their day-to-day work as Nick shared his own experience with few anecdotes on moving from design engineer to a focussed, specialist verification engineer. A real motivation for many engineers in the audience indeed!
Nick was presented a small momentum as a token of appreciation by Srinivasan Venkataramanan, Chair, Technical Program Committee of DVCon India 2015.
