September 26, 2011 -- Technologies for system-level design and their adoption have been a topic of debate in EDA well over a decade. Users and providers of system-level design technologies alike are watching the state of adoption, and like children on a road trip, they're asking, "Are we there yet?"
So where are we? And what can we learn from regular consumer product adoption? Product managers in Silicon Valley often refer to Geoffrey Moore's Crossing the Chasm, which is full of examples how technology adoption works and how it fails. One of the key elements for adoption is finding the capability a user cannot live without.
