Some pictures from Rome

Dear friends,

In April my wife Vivi and I spend 4 days in lovely Rome. As you can see from the pictures we stayed at a very nice hotel and was graced with 4 days in the sun. A little ecape from the daily routines is always recommendable.

Chairman of the board at Nangate A/S

Last week I was elected as the first chairman of the board for the Danish EDA company Nangate A/S (Inc.).

Nangate develops and markets Electronic Design Automation tools and intellectual property that allow customers to take full advantage of current and next-generation IC technologies. The Nangate tool suite constitutes a revolutionary new class of EDA solutions that increases the efficiency of digital CMOS ICs to levels previously only achievable with extensive manual efforts and very large design teams. Targeting the inherent shortcomings of predefined 'one-size-fits-all' standard cell libraries, Nangate provides a range of library optimization tools and solutions that can effectively optimize power consumption and maximize performance while minimizing chip area. By utilizing Nangate software customers benefit in multiple areas including lower power consumption, reduced manufacturing costs, higher performance and shorter time to market.


Country manager meeting in Norway

There is no doubt, that the ski resort Hafjell in Norway - just two hours drive north of Oslo - is one of my favourite ski area. Early this year we combined pleasure and work by holding a country manager meeting in Hafjell. Working from early in the morning to mid afternoon, and then some hours on ski, where after we would continue with work after dinner.
In the first picture you see at the far left our Nordic training manager Martin followed by our Danish country manager Carsten, Swedish country manager Tommie and last or Nordic marketing manager Jens Victor. Our Norwegian country manager where out on a short para-gliding trip! In the secound picture you see me with the fantastic panorama view from the top of Hafjell.
