    I spent the morning at Mentor where they announced their new enterprise verification platform. This was a general announcement but was attended by a lot of the international press who were over on a GlobalPress tour (the event that used to take up camp at Chaminade).

    But first Wally Rhines spent 30 minutes giving a nice overview of the history of verification, building up to the fact that this announcement is really verification ...

    The yield of semiconductor ICs always has been a problem and significant test effort is done to improve the same. The problem is aggravated further with the new CMOS technologies at lower nodes initiating the need of innovative testing approaches for faster yield ramp-up. Although good approaches have been developed for finding faults such as open, short, bridge etc. in the interconnect, it’s also highly desirable to identify defects within the cells (which ...

    Archaic tech metaphors abound, stuck in the psyche of users everywhere. We still “dial” numbers, long after the benefit of a short pull area code disappeared. (Humans could dial 1, 2, or 3 a lot faster on a rotary phone, and there were fewer dialpulses for central office switches to decode – thus big cities with more phone traffic like New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles got their original area codes.) We press a small icon that looks like a floppy disk to save a document. We say “stay tuned” when there is more ...

    In high density ICs with highly reduced device geometries and concentrated active areas working at significant voltage and power, technologies such as DTI (Deep Trench Isolation) and SOI (Silicon on Insulator) are being used where silicon dioxide (has high thermal resistance) is used to isolate devices which prevents heat propagation through substrate into the package. However, this can lead to accumulation of heat inside the device. Internal device ...

    There was a time not that long ago, before smartphones arrived on the scene, where Mentor Embedded Nucleus RTOS was dominant in non-Nokia feature phones – Mentor is part of the “Billion Unit Mobile Club”. Since then, Mentor has been searching to recreate that type of success, and like so many other software firms, they are now aiming Nucleus at the Internet of Things.

    The world has become smarter with embedded technologies in every smart device we use that brings together hardware, software, firmware and so on to work seamlessly. That’s how the Embedded world Exhibition & Conference, being held in Germany on 25-27 Feb 2014, describes the embedded community and welcomes its smart attendees, exhibitors and all participants. It’s a largest trade fair of its kind that showcases the hot embedded technologies of today and what to look for in future with live interaction ...
