    Article: A Brief History of Berkeley Design Automation-calibre-performance-improvements-min.jpg

    One might be tempted to think that technology driven gains in computer performance might be enough to keep up with the needs of design and verification tools. We know that design complexity is increasing at a rate predicted by Mooreís Law. We also know that the performance of the computers ...

    Article: Apple Will NOT Manufacture SoCs at Intel-reuse2017-min.jpg

    Our smart phone driven semiconductor economy consumes a lot of IP blocks to enable quick product development cycles, often annually updating with new models to choose from. So where do you find all of the best semiconductor IP, verification IP and embedded software? Well, one place is at the 2nd annual REUSE conference, scheduled for December 14th in Santa Clara at the Convention Center ...
