    Article: A Brief History of Synopsys-cybersecurity-not-only-about-technology.jpg

    One of the biggest misconceptions is thinking cybersecurity is only about technology. When in fact, people and their behaviors, play a prominent role in almost every aspect of protecting digital assets. Without proper consideration for the human element, security strategies are destined to fail miserably. ...

    Cadence has recently announced two key design-in for their Vision DSP IP family: MediaTek’s Helio P30 integrates the Tensilica Vision P5 DSP and HiSilicon has selected the Cadence® Tensilica® Vision P6 DSP for its 10nm Kirin 970 mobile application processor. The Kirin 970 being integrated into Huawei’s new Mate 10 Series mobile phones (HiSilicon is a subsidiary of Huawei), we can expect ...

    SVA : System Verilog Assertions - Dynamic Control Methods to control Assertions-scale-tools-not-your-expectations.jpg

    The complexity of silicon chips is exploding. Actually, it has been growing at a tremendous speed for decades. So far, the semiconductor industry has been successful at providing new ways to master new levels of complexity, over and over again.

    Standardizing hardware platforms, using higher-level languages with a knowledge of the underlying hardware ...

    Automotive markets have added pressure on semiconductor/systems design through demand for ISO26262 compliance – this we all know. But they have also changed the mix of important design types. Once class of design that has become very significant in ADAS, and ultimately ...

    The Internet of Things (IoT) is an ecosystem of ever-increasing complexity; it’s the next wave of innovation that will humanize every object in our life, and it is the next level of automation for every object we use. IoT is bringing more and more things into the digital fold every day, which will likely make IoT a multi-trillion dollar industry in the near future. To understand the scale of interest in the internet of things (#IoT) just check how many conferences, articles, and studies ...

    Article: Double Patterning Verification-arm_designstart-min.jpg

    Sometimes the hardest thing about bringing a new idea to fruition is overcoming the inertia to get started with a proof-of-concept. You must be able to put together enough parts of the solution to prove to those controlling budgets that an idea has merit and is worth taking to the next level. It’s a bit ...

    Article: A Comparison of SemiWiki and DeepChip-breker-min.jpg

    Verification engineers are hearing a lot about the Portable Stimulus Standard (PSS), and for good reason because it could potentially save them time and effort in doing their jobs much better. In order to get the big picture on what PSS is all about I contacted Adnan Hamid, founder and CEO of Breker Verification Systems, because he's been involved with the formation of PSS since its inception.

    For any given design objective, there is what we in the design automation biz preach that design teams should do, and then there’s what designs teams actually do. For some domains, the gap between these two may be larger than others, but we more or less assume that methodologies which have been around ...

    Article: HP Loses Its Autonomy!-motorola_dsp96002_die.jpg

    In late 1986 the Layout Project Leader of DSP96000 got married and left for a 6 months’ vacation so I inherited the biggest chip MSIL had in stock. Floorplanning such size chip was a challenge from day one. Even the 68030 SUN workstation was too slow. I started to ask around ...
