3D-IC Intensifies Demand For Multi-Physics Simulation


The introduction of full 3D-ICs will require a simultaneous analysis of various physical effects under different workloads, a step-function change that will add complexity at every step of the design flow, expand and alter job responsibilities, and bring together the analog and digital design worlds in unprecedented ways. 3D-ICs will be the highest-performance advanced packaging option, in s... » read more

AI Tradeoffs At The Edge


AI is impacting almost every application area imaginable, but increasingly it is moving from the data center to the edge, where larger amounts of data need to be processed much more quickly than in the past. This has set off a scramble for massive improvements in performance much closer to the source of data, but with a familiar set of caveats — it must use very little power, be affordable... » read more

Software-Defined Vehicles Ready To Roll


Software-defined vehicles are driving a swell of activity across the automotive ecosystem, including new methodologies and technology approaches that could significantly reduce costs and shorten time to market for advanced features. The SDV approach encompasses more than a single concept. It helps to think of it more as a modeling approach that connects EVs, driver assistance technology, and... » read more

Formal Verification’s Usefulness Widens


Formal verification is being deployed more often and in more places in chip designs as the number of possible interactions grows, and as those chips are used in more critical applications. In the past, much of formal verification was focused on whether a chip would function properly. But as designs become more complex and heterogeneous, and as use cases change, formal verification is being u... » read more

Which Data Works Best For Voltage Droop Simulation


Experts at the Table: Semiconductor Engineering sat down to talk about the need for the right type of data, why this has to be done early in the design flow, and how 3D-IC will affect all of this, with Bill Mullen, distinguished engineer at Ansys; Rajat Chaudhry, product management group director at Cadence; Heidi Barnes, senior applications engineer at Keysight; Venkatesh Santhanagopalan, prod... » read more

Glitch Power Issues Grow At Advanced Nodes


An estimated 20% to 40% of total power is being wasted due to glitch in some of the most advanced and complex chip designs, and at this point there is no single best approach for how and when to address it, and mixed information about how effective those solutions can be. Glitch power is not a new phenomenon. DSP architects and design engineers are well-versed in the power wasted by long, sl... » read more
