    Article: Static Timing Analysis for Memory Characterization-fate-autonomous-jpg

    The latest installment in the "Fast and Furious" franchise will debut bringing the concept of remote control of cars into the mainstream. Suffice it to say that remote control plays a major role in the script.

    This will only be the latest chapter of a long-running effort to demonize autonomous vehicle technology in mass media - preceded just this week by an Uber self-driving car being upended ...

    Article: Should ARM care about MIPS acquisition by Imagination Technologies?-fdsoi_tutorial_st-jpg

    So you've got questions about FD-SOI? For chip designers in Silicon Valley, there's a great opportunity to get answers from some of the world's leading design experts. It's coming up fast: April 14th, the SOI Consortium is organizing a full day of FDSOI tutorials for chip designers. Bear in mind that it's not a sales day. It's a learning day.

    The courses will be given by top professors at top universities (including UC Berkeley, Stanford, U. Toronto and Lund). They’ve all also spent years working closely with industry, so they really

    Article: Did the MIPS acquisition just doom Vivante?-crossing-ahead-min-jpeg

    Because you can never have too much to worry about in verification, reset domain crossings (RDCs) are another hazard lying in wait to derail your design. Which hardly seems fair. We like to think of resets as dependable anchors to get us back on track when all else fails, ...

    Article: Should ARM care about MIPS acquisition by Imagination Technologies?-talking-cars-quiet-qualcomm-jpg

    Qualcomm is a technology titan standing astride both the automotive and wireless industries with 10's of thousands of patents, 340M automotive-grade chipsets shipped and a leading position in the connected car industry. So it is fascinating to find executives at the company almost totally tongue-tied of late when it comes to talking about the car technology currently facing a government ...

    Article: Should ARM care about MIPS acquisition by Imagination Technologies?-mobileye-revenge-jpg

    Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk has famously dismissed hydrogen fuel ("fool") cells and LiDAR and even parted company with Mobileye over automated driving strategy. Now it appears that Mobileye has gotten a measure of revenge with broad implications for the automotive industry, Tesla Motors and automated driving.

    Mobileye's revenge has come in Tesla's

    Article: Waiting or EUV - Another View on the ReRAM Roadmap-quantum-computer-min-jpeg

    I’ve written recently about the trend to move more technology to the edge, to mobile devices certainly but also to IoT edge nodes. This is based particularly on latency, communications access and power considerations. One example is the move of deep reasoning apps to the edge to handle ...

    Have you used the modern DxDesigner?  Gary Lameris describes enhancements in his blog-dac54-min-jpg

    The most charismatic EDA CEO that I have ever witnessed is Joe Costello, who formed Cadence by merging SDA (Solomon Design Automation) and ECAD (known for DRC with Dracula). You will be impressed with his Monday keynote at DAC on June 19th, starting at 9:15AM. Joe has long since left the EDA world and is currently the CEO of a company called Enlighted that is bringing the IoT to smart buildings, and yes, they actually have big-name customers. ...

    Article: Should ARM care about MIPS acquisition by Imagination Technologies?-tesla-cat-bag-jpg

    Some day soon, maybe this year or next, Tesla Motors is going to let the cat out of the bag that its cars are not only connected but are also subject to remote control. Remote control isn't the sort of feature that consumers look for in their personal transportation, so it isn't likely to be something Tesla is going to bring up. It also has a range of security, privacy ...

    One of the fun things about what I do is getting to meet some of the movers and shakers in the industry. You might not think of Accellera as a spot to find movers and shakers, but when you consider the impact they have had on what we ...

    Code scavenging in chip design-real-lesson-aws-outage-jpg

    The embarrassing outage of Amazon Web Services this week should open our eyes to a growing problem. Complex systems are difficult to manage, but if they are connected in dependent ways, a fragile result emerges. Such structures are subject to unexpected ...
