Implementing High-Density-Advanced Packaging for OSATs And Foundries


HDAP design and verification require cooperation and collaboration between design houses, OSATs, foundries, and EDA vendors. By using common tools that have the integration and functionality needed to operate in both the IC and packaging domains and by developing and deploying process optimized design-kits such as ADK’s and PDKs, OSATs, foundries, and their customers can achieve design, fabri... » read more

Get To Market Fast And First With Reusable Circuit Blocks


Reusable circuit blocks enable design teams to build new products quickly, but how do you manage a process that spans both library and design? How do you know which elements need to be managed? This paper describes techniques for leveraging certified circuits and providing continuous circuit improvement, best practices for using reusable circuit blocks, and how these blocks can be used to track... » read more

IC Test Solutions For The Automotive Market


The amount of electronic content in passenger cars continues to grow rapidly, driven mainly by the integration of various advanced safety features, which will increase further with the move towards fully autonomous vehicles. It is critical that these safety-related devices adhere to the highest possible quality and reliability requirements formalized in the ISO 26262 standard that is being rapi... » read more

Introducing An Embedded Multicore Framework For Advanced AMP Architectures


Heterogeneous multicore systems, that combine two or more microprocessors, are quickly becoming the de-facto architecture in the embedded industry. The asynchronous multiprocessing (AMP) software architecture enables designers to leverage the compute bandwidth provided by these heterogeneous processors. The best way to fully realize the potential of an AMP architecture is to implement it within... » read more

In Search Of Life On The Exoplanets


Space exploration is a constant driver of scientists around the world, searching for life on planets outside our solar system (exoplanets). The news is often filled by wondrous discoveries and promising leads that point to potential life outside of Earth. This search often depends on a key piece of technology – the analog-to-digital converter (ADC) that accurately maps analog imaging to a dig... » read more

Five Things You Need To Know Before Selecting An RTOS


Almost any embedded device is likely to need an operating system of some description. Making the decision to use an OS, selecting it and planning its deployment are all challenging. In this paper, we will take a detailed look at the 5 key issues facing an embedded developer, who is considering the selection of an OS: 1. Does the design need an operating system at all? Some designs might appear... » read more

Reduce Verification Complexity In Low/Multi-Power Designs


Accurate and efficient low-power and multiple-power domain verification requires both knowledge of the overall system’s power intent and careful tracking of signals crossing these power domains. Calibre PERC is the only comprehensive solution capable of providing transistor-level power intent verification without the need for SPICE simulation on both the schematic and layout side of your desi... » read more
