Manufacturing Bits: June 7


Intel’s spintronic spectrometer Intel and Stanford University have presented the first results for a technology called a ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) spectrometer. Initially invented and developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), FMR examines the properties of materials for spintronic-based memories. Today’s DRAMs store binary data in tiny capacitors. I... » read more

Top 15 Integrating Points In The Continuum Of Verification Engines


The integration game between the different verification engines, dynamic and static, is in full swing. Jim Hogan talked about the dynamic engines that he dubbed “COVE”, and I recently pointed out a very specific adoption of COVE in my review of some customer examples at DAC 2015 in “Use Model Versatility Is Key for Emulation Returns on Investment”. Here are my top 15 integrating poin... » read more
