The Fundamental Power States For UPF Modeling And Power Aware Verification


The IEEE 1801-2015 specifies the new semantics of power states through the ‘add_power_state’ UPF command. This new construct primarily allows incremental refinement of power states for power domains and its associated supply sets. The refinement concepts are actually originated from the fundamental conceptual set of power states termed as indefinite, definite, and deferred power states. In ... » read more

The Best Of Both Worlds


Fidelity and accuracy are critical in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation. After all, physical prototyping and testing can only be reduced if one can expect accurate simulation results. But up to now, high fidelity, high accuracy results have come with a price. Complex, realistic geometries have required hours of manual effort to clean up the model and prepare the mesh. Users have bee... » read more

How To Build Security Into Your IoT Wearable Device


In today's connected world, IoT wearable devices should be built from the ground up to include basic, fundamental security capabilities. This whitepaper explains the key security technologies critical for creating a secure IoT embedded device. Topics include code and boot-time authentication, establishing a chain of trust, process separation and space partitioning, using a safety-certified oper... » read more

Intelligent Buildings


ARM believes that by 2035 one trillion devices will be connected to the internet. We will find a large number of them in the next generation of high performing buildings. According to McKinseyi, half the opportunities for Internet of Things (IoT) vendors are expected to come from the built environment; from homes, buildings, factories and cities. More than 50 percent of the world’s seven b... » read more

Expose Transistor-Level Yield Limiters With Cell-Aware Diagnosis


Cell-aware diagnosis is a new and effective method to perform transistor-level diagnosis to identify defects inside standard cells. It leverages fault models derived from analog simulation and uses a fail data collection and diagnosis flow identical to that of traditional diagnosis. Cell-aware diagnosis in Tessent Diagnosis is the result of over 10 years of research in cell-aware test and was d... » read more

Don’t Let Bad Apples Ruin Your Pie


The quality of a pie depends heavily on the ingredients you use. Do you use bleached white flour or organic multigrain flour? Do you use sugar or a carcinogenic artificial sweetener? Do you use Granny Smith apples, or Honeycrisp, or those funky apples that fell off the tree that’s in your neighborhood? Managing ingredients is crucial to your success. Suppose you’re not paying close atten... » read more

DO-254 Explained


This white paper, the first in a series of DO-254-related white papers, will explore the high-level concepts and activities within the DO-254 Design Assurance Guidance for Airborne Electronic Hardware specification, why they exist, and what they mean. In this paper, we will explore the safety-related concepts of requirements traceability, design assurance levels, the overall DO-254-compliant fl... » read more

Highly Sensitive Focus Monitoring Technique Based On Illumination And Target Co-Optimization


By Myungjun Lee, Mark D. Smith, Pradeep Subrahmanyan, and Ady Levy. Abstract We present a cost-effective focus monitoring technique based on the illumination and the target co-optimization. An advanced immersion scanner can provide the freeform illumination that enables the use of any kind of custom source shape by using a programmable array of thousands of individually adjustable micro-mi... » read more

When Exposed To IoT, Big Iron ATE Will Rust


When the first “smart” refrigerators were released in the early 2000s, consumers weren’t sure what to do with them. When Nest released the smart thermostat, though, a revolution happened. Humans were taken out of the loop because the thermostat learned on its own about desired temperature and how quickly it could cool or heat a house. And it could synchronize all of this better than a hum... » read more
