The EDA Consortium has produced the first EDA Industry Operating System (OS) Roadmap, designed to enhance planning for OS support, migration, and end of OS support. The Roadmap offers recommended OS support timelines and a webpage that links to specific OS support plans of Consortium members. The Roadmap includes support recommendations for HP-UX, Solaris, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and Windows OSs running on SPARC, Intel, PA-RISC, or AMD compute platforms.

Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
