    • Synopsys marketed the top-down design methodology, using Verilog.
  • 40. HDL : VHDL
    • VHDL is the VHSIC Hardware Description Language.
    • The development of VHDL was initiated in 1981 by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) to address the hardware life cycle crisis.
    • 1983-85 - Development of baseline language by Intermetrics, IBM and TI
    • 1986 - All rights transferred to IEEE
    • 1987 - Publication of IEEE Standard

    • 1994 - Revised standard (named VHDL 1076-1993)
  • 41. HDL War : Verilog/VHDL
    • Verilog was a proprietary language owned by Cadence
    • Other EDA put their weight behind VHDL, which was an open language.
    • In 1991, Cadence officially published the Verilog language
    • The most successful of Verilog simulators was VCS, the Verilog Compiled Simulator, from Chronologic Simulation.
    • Accellera
    • “ Adoption of VHDL was one of the biggest mistakes in the history of design automation, causing users and EDA vendors to waste hundreds of millions of dollars” Joe Costello
  • 42. Avant! litigation
    • "The Avant! case is probably the most dramatic tale of white-collar crime in the history of Silicon Valley" .
    • Avant! had a long legal battle(around 6 years) with Cadence Design System. 
    • In 1991 four Cadence employees left to form a competitive firm ArcSys later changed to Avant!.
    • In 1994, Gerald Hsu, a senior Cadence executive resigned and joined Avant! as its new CEO.
    • Shortly after Hsu’s departure, Avant! continued to hire many Cadence employees, including a number of critical programmers
  • 43. Avant! litigation
    • Cadence engineer noticed that the Avanti code exactly reproduced a particular bug that Cadence code exhibited earlier.
    • Cadence accused Avant! of misappropriating trade-secrets and other unlawful conduct. Cadence sued Avant! on several counts.
    • At the end, the Avant! executives (Gerald Hsu and six others) paid about $195 million in restitution to Cadence with an additional $40+ million in fines personally to the State.
    • During this litigation, Avant! was bought by Synopsys, which paid Cadence about $265 million dollars more to end all litigation 
  • 44. Design Automation Conference (DAC)
    • Combination of a technical conference and a trade show of EDA.
