The DAC Fan Club Asks for Favorite DAC Stories on “I Love DAC” Web Site

The DAC Fan Club, founded by Atrenta, Denali and SpringSoft, urges attendees of the upcoming 46th Design Automation Conference (DAC), and those not able to attend this year to share their favorite DAC story and explain why they love DAC at I Love DAC.

What started as an ad-hoc effort by Atrenta, Denali and SpringSoft to offer 600 week-long DAC exhibit passes free of charge has evolved into a true online fan club where the design automation community can connect and share experiences. Each company invites DAC attendees to stop by their booth (Atrenta #1528, Denali #1424, SpringSoft #3367) to pick up an official fan club button, wear it during DAC and win an iPod touch if you are spotted with it on.

“Let’s face it, DAC is the focal point for our industry. With the vast momentum and innovation that exists within the EDA industry, the I Love DAC site provides a place for people to share and reflect on the many experiences that the annual event has on our lives,” said Mike Gianfagna, vice president of marketing for Atrenta. “Atrenta is pleased to be a part of the DAC Fan Club and I hope everyone will join the community and contribute to the collective memory of show.”

“It is at DAC that I most feel part of a real EDA community,” said Scott Sandler, vice president of corporate marketing for SpringSoft, and president of SpringSoft USA. “We hope that the DAC Fan Club gives people around the world a way to tap into that feeling for years to come.”

“Our goal is that this online community not only serve as another common thread that binds us all together, but in addition stimulates and encourages others to become more involved in DAC and the EDA industry,” remarked David Lin, vice president of marketing for Denali.

This year’s DAC will be held July 26-31 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. For details or to register, visit: www.dac.com.
