    Want to learn 20 nm layout techniques!-increase-interconnect-value-min.jpg

    Have you ever wondered how process variation, thermal self-heating and Vdd levels affect the timing and yield of your SoC design? If you're clock specification calls for 3GHz, while your silicon is only yielding at 2.4GHz, then you have a big problem on your hands. Such are the concerns of many modern day chip designers. To learn more about this topic I attended the 45 minute webinar from ...

    Want to learn 20 nm layout techniques!-fec-data-center-application-opensilicon.jpg

    The end-to-end principle as defined by Wikipedia is a design framework in computer networking. In networks designed according to this principle, application-specific features reside in the communicating end nodes of the network, rather than in intermediary nodes, such as gateways and routers, that exist to establish the network. [1]There are usually tradeoffs between reliability, ...

    Article: TSMC Apple Rumors Debunked!-safety-min.jpeg

    Safety is a big deal these days, not only in automotive applications, but also in critical infrastructure and industrial applications (the power grid, nuclear reactors and spacecraft, to name just a few compelling examples). We generally understand that functional blocks ...

    Advanced process technology offers both device and interconnect scaling for increased design density and higher performance while invoking also significant implementation complexities. Aside from the performance, power and area (PPA) aspects, designer is getting entrenched with the need of tackling more reliability issues ...

    There is something endearing and refreshing in seeing a novel approach unfold in our Semi-IP-EDA ecosystem currently settled in its efficient yet, let us say it, unexciting ‘going through the motions’, constantly comparing, matching, competitively and selfishly sub-optimizing what the art of the possible can be.

    Enter a ...

    Which way the semiconductor industry is going?-india-traffic-min.jpeg

    While at DVCon I talked to Apurva Kalia (VP R&D in the System and Verification group at Cadence). He introduced me to the ultimate benchmark test for self-driving – an autonomous 3-wheeler driving in Delhi traffic. If you’ve never visited India, the traffic there is quite an experience. ...

    Most of us continue to drive cars and for me there's always been a fascination with all things electrical that go into the actual design of a car. I've done typical maintenance tasks on my cars over the years like changing the battery, installing a new radio, replacing bulbs, changing a fuse, swapping out dashboard lights, and even putting in new power window assemblies. The automotive engineers that get to do the actual design work face a ...

    Technology is reaching a point where it can nearly create fake video and audio content in real-time from handheld devices like smartphones.

    In the near future, you will be able to Facetime someone and have a real-time conversation with more than just bunny ears or some other cartoon overlay. Imagine appearing as a person ...

    WhatsApp differentiates itself from Facebook by touting its privacy and end-to-end encryption. “Some of your most personal moments are shared with WhatsApp", it says, so “your messages, photos, videos, voice messages, documents, and calls are secured from falling into the wrong hands”. A WhatsApp founder ...
