Rapid SoC Proof-Of-Concept For Zero Cost


A new breed of designers has arrived that is leveraging inexpensive sensors to build the intelligent systems at the edge of the Internet of Things (IoT). They work in small teams, collaborate online, and they expect affordable design tools that are easy to use in order to quickly produce results. Their goal is to deliver a functioning device to their stakeholders while spending as little money ... » read more

Power Management Validation


Power consumption is becoming a critical aspect of hardware design. No longer is verifying an SoC solely answering the question “does it work?” Now designers must also answer the question “does it meet my power budget?” When trying to find power issues it is critical to run the complete system in a realistic manner—at the system-level when the design/verification team is looking at th... » read more

Turning Signal Integrity Simulation Inside Out


So what does it mean to turn signal integrity simulation inside out? Modern simulation has physics-based solvers in the foreground supported by circuit and system simulation rather than the other way around. All electronic design is fundamentally based on Maxwell’s equations, so naturally the most rigorous way to deliver accurate simulation of high-performance systems is to solve those equ... » read more

How To Implement A Secure IoT System On ARMv8-M


Attacks on IoT devices are guaranteed - they will happen! Therefore, system security needs to be easy and fast to implement. With ARM's newest embedded processors - the ARM Cortex-M23 and Cortex-M33 with TrustZone for ARMv8-M - developers can take advantage of hardware-enforced security. Now, system designers have the challenge to extend security throughout the whole system. Join this techni... » read more

Synopsys SoundWire Test Suite


Validation and interoperability are always a challenge for any new protocol. An earlier white paper, Digital Audio Simplified: MIPI SoundWire, discussed the basics of digital audio transmission, and benefits of SoundWire over other audio interfaces. This whitepaper describes how easy it is to integrate and validate a SoundWire design using Synopsys SoundWire VIP Test Suite. To read more, cli... » read more

Accelerating Mobile Wallet Adoption


To accelerate the mass adoption of mobile payments, mobile wallets must be part of a new retail future in which an offline brick-and-mortar paradigm is replaced by a secure, seamless and interactive shopping experience. For consumers, mobile wallets should combine payments, gift cards, loyalty rewards and coupons in a single retail app for a truly frictionless commerce experience. For retai... » read more
