Thank you for another sizzling HOT event!

Thank you to all who joined us at the HOT IP Party at DAC 2014! We had a great turnout with over 300 people, and we were able to raise more than $5,700 for SFCASA (San Francisco Court Appointed Special Advocates)! We appreciate all who came out and joined us!

Jim Hogan and Jill Jacobs reveal highlights of the HOT IP Party at DAC 2014.

Check out photos and video of the event!

The event would not have happened without the support and vision of our sponsors: Atrenta, Uniquify, Cadence, Adapt IP, ARM, Ausdia, C & J Engineering Technical Services, CLK, EDA Consortium, Si2, Solido, Sonics and True Circuits. We also would like to recognize the participation of DAC and their commitment to IP as a major feature of the conference.

The party was a truly collaborative effort. We would like to thank our fabulous emcee Sean O'Kane for bringing fun and creativity, the dedicated efforts of our planning committee, and the excellent entertainment providing by our bands who devoted their time and effort to making the party happen.
