    We've blogged dozens of times about UVM - Universal Verification Methodology at SemiWiki, and all of the major EDA vendors support UVM, so you may be lulled into thinking that UVM is totally adequate for top-down SoC verification. Yesterday I had a phone discussion with Frank Schirrmeister of Cadence about a new approach to top-down SoC verification that has started to change my mind because they have engineered a new EDA product called Perspec, ...

    We are writing technical blogs all along the year, sometime it’s good to write about something completely different. Don’t worry, I don’t plan to write any geo-political analysis, neither propose tourism advertising for Cuba. I just wish ...

    Technology often goes in cycles. Thirty years ago the dominant mode of computing was a shared computing resource with comparatively dumb terminals. Think of a Vax accessed by terminals. Then workstations and the PC came along and the dominant mode became a computer on everyone's desk. Then ...

    New technology and business buzzwords pop up constantly. Hardly a day goes by that you don’t see or hear words such as “cloud”, “IoT,” or “big data.” Let’s add one more to the list: “Ambient security.”


    You’ll notice that big data, the cloud, and the IoT are all connected, literally and figuratively, and that is the point. Billions of things will communicate with each other without human intervention,

    What does the IoT mean for the next wave of Silicon Valley innovators? Looking at the previous waves of semiconductor economic development and the doctrine of “creative destruction” holds clues as to how this one develops and who emerges as the new leaders.

    Given seven decades of progress, it may seem semiconductor firms on top in mobile would naturally lead the transition to the IoT. ...

    SoC design these days has become a complex and tricky phenomenon involving integration of multiple IPs and legacy RTL code which could be in different languages, sourced from various third parties across the globe. Understanding and reusing RTL code is imperative in SoC integration which needs capable tools that can accommodate large designs ...
