    Article: Double Patterning Tutorial-exostiv-ultrascale.jpg

    Productivity is notoriously hard to sell. I recently visited a company where the engineering team wanted to evaluate one of our FPGA debug and analysis products on an existing board. This board had an FPGA that we supported and had all the required connectivity - it could just be used ‘out of the box’. Our tool - Exostiv - involves the insertion of a debug IP in the FPGA. We offered to set up the tool with the ...

    Need help with TSUPREME4 and MEDICI.-top-cybersecurity-concerns-wrong.jpg

    A recent survey by Varonis of 500 security professionals from the U.S., UK, and France highlights the top three cybersecurity concern for 2018: Data Loss, Data Theft, and Ransomware. Sadly, we are overlooking the bigger problems!

    Article: Apple Will NOT Manufacture SoCs at Intel-balance-2108022_960_720.jpg



    There are 3 common misconceptions about debugging FPGA with the real hardware:

    1. Debugging happens because the engineers are incompetent.
    2. FPGA debugging on hardware ‘wastes’ resources.
    3. A single methodology should solve ALL the problems.

    Article: Apple Will NOT Manufacture SoCs at Intel-nxp_i.mxrt_chipshot_oct202017-min.jpg

    Back in the day we had processors which consolidated computing power onto a chip, and out of these sprang (if you’ll excuse the Biblical imagery) microcontrollers (MCUs) in one direction and increasingly complex system-on-chip (SoC) ...

    Thermo-Mechanical Simulation of 3D Stack Assembly Process-japan-inc.-brink-min.jpg

    Japan has had an incredible run in technology, but the past decade has seen a reversal of fortune. Consumer electronics powerhouses such as Pioneer, Panasonic, Sharp and many others have been humbled by the commoditization of their hardware and a shift in market share to Asian competitors.

    Article: A Brief History of Synopsys-cybersecurity-lnot-onlyl-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. ...

    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 ...

    Article: A Comparison of SemiWiki and DeepChip-challenges-blockchain-iot.jpg

    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 ...

    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.

    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 ...
