Securing DRAM Against Evolving Rowhammer Threats

Advanced process nodes and higher silicon densities are heightening DRAM's susceptibility to Rowhammer attacks, as reduced cell spacing significantly decreases the hammer count needed for bit flips. Rowhammer exploits DRAM’s single-capacitor-per-bit design to trigger bit flips in adjacent cells through repeated memory row accesses. This vulnerability allows attackers to manipulate data, re... » read more

Optimizing EDA Cloud Hardware And Workloads

Optimizing EDA hardware for the cloud can shorten the time required for large and complex simulations, but not all workloads will benefit equally, and much more can be done to improve those that can. Tens of thousands of GPUs and specialized accelerators, all working in parallel, add significant and elastic compute horsepower for complex designs. That allows design teams to explore various a... » read more

IC Tool Vendors Eye Cloud-Native Future

The promise of scalability and efficiency is accelerating the migration of electronic design automation (EDA) to the cloud. Unlimited on-demand compute resources fundamentally change the chip design paradigm, where tools and workloads are no longer constrained by localized hardware. This is easier said than done, however. Optimizing existing tools and infrastructure, creating a new generatio... » read more

Navigating The Foggy Edge Of Computing

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) defines fog computing as a horizontal, physical or virtual resource paradigm that resides between smart end-devices and traditional cloud or data centers. This model supports vertically-isolated, latency-sensitive applications by providing ubiquitous, scalable, layered, federated and distributed computing, storage and network connecti... » read more

NVDIMM Market Buoyed By Evolving Data Center Demands

The NVDIMM market A recent report published by Transparency Market Research (TMR) confirms that the global Non-Volatile Dual In-line Memory Module (NVDIMM) market is being propelled by an increased demand for advanced data center infrastructure. Indeed, NVDIMMs offer fault-tolerant data integrity, while simultaneously optimizing the performance of storage and cache, as well as indexing, messag... » read more
