Why DRAM Won’t Go Away

New materials, new architectures and higher density have limited what can be done with DRAM, but it's still king (Experts At The Table Part 3)

FPGA Design Tradeoffs Getting Tougher

As chips grow in size, optimizing performance and power requires a bunch of new options and methodology changes.

3D Power Delivery

The design of the power delivery network just got a lot more complicated, and designers can no longer rely on margining when things become vertical.

Trading Off Power And Performance Earlier In Designs

Complexity, tighter schedules require deeper understanding throughout the design flow.

Reducing Software Power

Software plays a significant role in overall power consumption, but so far there has been little progress on that front.

Taking Energy Into Account

In the IC design flow, energy is just as important to consider as power.

Power Modeling Standard Released

IEEE 2416 is the newly released standard for power modeling. What can we expect from it?

U.S. Consortium Pulls Ecosystem Into Quantum

Through QED-C, the U.S. government helps build industry support behind quantum computing.

Optimizing Power For Learning At The Edge

Making learning on the edge work requires a significant reduction in power, which means rethinking all parts of the flow.

Determining Where Power Analysis Matters Most

Need for accuracy varies greatly, depending on where in the design flow it is used and the overall system architecture.
