Ok. I have news. We've been keeping it under wraps, but I just can't wait any longer to tell you about how awesome Stars of IP is going to be this year. Our annual party in conjunction with the Design Automation Conference (DAC) has certainly grown from the modest affair that it was down in Austin two years ago. I can hardly believe it, but we're inviting more than FOUR HUNDRED guests this year.
I am pleased to announce that we have a whopping 22 companies and industry organizations co-hosting this year! I would like to extend my most sincere thanks to all of them: Adapt-IP, Altair, ARM, Atrenta, CAST, Certus Semiconductor, Constellations, DAC, Dassault Systèmes, eSilicon, IPextreme, Kilopass, Methodics, Mobiveil, NGCodec, OneSpin, Rambus, Sidense, Sonics, Synopsys, TrueCircuits, and TSMC. Wow, guys. I can't tell you what it means to me to have your support.
Stars of IP takes place on the evening of Tuesday, June 9th, 2015 at Novela, which is just a stone's throw from San Francisco's Moscone Center. The bar is literary-themed, which is fitting: we wrote the book on IP parties at DAC, after all! As always, this is a private, invitation-only event that is sure to be the hottest ticket in town this year at DAC. Open bar, great food, entertainment, and a whole lot of key players in the IP industry, all in one place. If you're interested in attending, comment here and I'll do my best to help you score a ticket from one of our co-host companies.
I can't wait to spend the evening celebrating semiconductor IP with our best customers and favorite industry buddies.
