Dear FPGA Engineer,
It's your time to be heard! For the longest time our corner of the electronic design world has lived in the shadow of ASICs and full custom chips. Programmable silicon provides the sizzle for products from high definition TVs to base stations that power cell phone networks, but the attention always seems to go to the full custom crowd. The FPGA vendor's mission is to level the playing field by bringing deep sub micron silicon to every engineer; GateRocket's goal is to provide best-in-class debug and verification tools specifically for you, the FPGA designer.
Now the industry seems to be taking notice of the need for more sophisticated FPGA design tools. A month ago we got our first confirmation that FPGA tools are important. GateRocket received the prestigious DesignVision award for RocketVision's SoftPatch capability. Now SoftPatch is a finalist for the EDN Innovation award - the only FPGA EDA solution to be nominated. Winning both awards in one year would send a loud message: FPGA tools matter to many engineers worldwide!
You can raise the awareness of FPGA technology by voting for SoftPatch. Just click this link, scroll down till you see SoftPatch in the EDA Tools section and check the box, scroll to the bottom and submit your vote.
Please spread the word. If you know of other FPGA designers who may not have received this email, please forward it to them.
Thank you for your vote and interest in advanced FPGA solutions,
Dave Orecchio, CEO, GateRocket, Inc.
