    DesignCon 2013 - get 20% off your Conference Pass-lipstck-pig-service.jpg

    I have a lot of friends in the real estate industry, and two of the most common sales tactics are to create “curb appeal,” and to “stage” the interior of the residence being sold. Curb appeal, of course, refers to making the home looks as appealing as possible upon first impression. Update the landscaping. Add ...

    Ever since the Chinese Government banned Facebook in 2009, Mark Zuckerberg has been making annual trips there attempting to persuade its leaders to let his company back in. He learned Mandarin and jogged through the smog-filled streets of Beijing to show how much he loved the country. Facebook even created new tools ...

    The year is now 1991 and in search for a more peaceful life we decided to move to Canada. At that time, very few companies had advanced flows in VLSI but Ottawa having BNR, Northern Telecom, Mitel, etc., looked to be the most promising place. After a few hiccups in finding a job, I landed in MOSAID, a small company with35 people at that time. ...

    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 ...
