    There have always been novel technologies vying to compete with conventional design practices. It is hit or miss on the success of these ideas. In the 90ís I recall speaking to someone who was convinced that they could effectively build computers based on multilevel logic. This, as we know did ...

    Article: Executive Opinion: The Future of EDA is Bright-tcl-jpg

    In Orion Bytes we use Tcl both for the internal research, product and different verification services. We use also SystemVerilog UVM and Python based Cocotb for different approaches. I think itís no need to deep into the SystemVerilog and UVM principles here - todayís main verification fashion is well described through the web and books.

    An indecision is actually a very bad decision. It is an implicit decision for the status quo. It is worse than an explicit decision regardless of how bad that decision turns out to be. In my experience, our indecisiveness is caused by various reasons involving trade-offs.

    Need help with Power theatre tool-matrix-laws-physics-jpg

    Respected Gordon Moore has given the real computing power to the world and Respected Stephen Hawking's work from past many years has given the reality of physics and mathematics to the universe. We can imagine the shrinking and intelligence in computing due to the real evolution of semiconductor technology. The process node has shrunk from 250 nanometer (Year 1997) to 14 nanometer (Year 2014). And continues to shrink but have limitations due to fundamental laws of Physics.

    Strength of CEVA DSP vs.  competitors-tcl-systemverilog-jpg

    Nowadays, verification as one of the most complex SoC, FPGA, and ASIC development flow stages always requires new approaches. The following is an introduction to TcL vs/ with SystemVerilog and VHDL, the first in a 3 part series. Part 2 will be "Tcl vs Python, Bluespec" and part 3 will be "VerTcl description".

    Of course, the industry ...
