Many of you no doubt have heard of the passing of longtime EDA industry analyst Gary Smith, who died after an illness July 3. Gary was a life-loving, spirited and brilliant man whose long passion for electronics design was reflected in everything from his work to his music-playing to his efforts with the ITRS semiconductor roadmap. Richard Goering, longtime EDA editor with EE Times and Cadence, penned an obituary as did Dylan McGrath for EE Times.
A celebration of Gary's life, hosted by his widow, ARM's lorikate, is scheduled for Sunday July 12, 11 a.m. at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose. Additional information can be found here at Gary Smith EDA.
