The Revenge Of The Digital Twins


How do we verify artificial intelligence? Even before “smart digital twins” get as advanced as shown in science fiction shows, making sure they are “on our side” and don’t “go rogue” will become a true verification problem. There are some immediate tasks the industry is working on—like functional safety and security—but new verification challenges loom on the horizon. As in pr... » read more

Verification Trends Enabling A 5G Future


Applications have driven requirements for verification for quite some time now, as I have written previously regarding Aero & Defense, AI and Machine Learning and the Internet of Things. In wireless communication, we are just at the brink of the transition to Fifth Generation Networks, or 5G. This transition will not only lead to new applications and use models that will impact our day-to-d... » read more

The Future Is Bright: DARPA Is Driving Electronic Resurgence


This week, DARPA ran the Electronics Resurgence Initiative (ERI) Summit in San Francisco, and while we are certainly staring at some daunting challenges to continue the fast-paced development in electronics, it looks like the future actually looks quite bright. I found myself whistling, “How lucky we are to be alive right now” from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton when leaving the stunning P... » read more

DAC 2018: System Design, Cloud And Machine Learning


This marks the 10th DAC that I have covered as a blogger. At DAC 2008 in Anaheim, the industry had just come together behind the SystemC TLM 2.0 standard to enable virtual platforms, finally getting to model interoperability. System design is the common thread that is also present in this year’s DAC in 2018 in San Francisco. But a lot has changed. Big data analytics, artificial intelligence a... » read more

Electronic System-Level Design: Are We There Yet?


I am writing this while attending NI Week in Austin and am admittedly wowed by National Instruments’ open test platform. NI Week’s theme is “Developing the Future Faster.” The Tuesday keynote included guest speakers from Mazda, Honeywell, and NXP, and these were great examples of system-level design of different scopes, from cars to distributed systems to chips enabling them. Personally... » read more

Different Shades Of Prototyping And Ecosystems: System Development At CDNLive 2018


Because of its unique great user interactions, my favorite EDA event of the year is the kickoff of our yearly series of CDNLive user conferences in Silicon Valley. This year blew out all my expectations. We had a dozen presentations in the Systems Track that I was sharing, 11 of them from customers and partners underlining the use model versatility of emulation, the hardware ecosystem for 5G, a... » read more

Embedded World 2018: Security, Safety, And Digital Twins


This year's embedded world in Nuremberg was again very well attended despite a cold wave in Europe. The key trends I had expected to see were safety and security, and the exhibits did not disappoint. One additional key theme that stood out to me was that of “digital twinning.” And, of course, the battle of processor ecosystems does continue. RISC-V has joined the games and feels a bit like ... » read more

AI And Machine Learning Drive New SoC Verification Choices


I have previously written about the choices that design teams have when choosing specific verification engines—virtual, formal, simulation, emulation, FPGA and actual silicon. As a new class of SoC is emerging for machine learning and artificial intelligence with complexities previously unheard of, they further deepen the challenge of choosing the right tool for the job. Even the choice betwe... » read more

It Takes A Village… To Develop And Verify SoCs


In my last blog post from 2017, “Design Chains Will Drive The Top 5 EDA Trends In 2018,” I had pointed to the importance of ecosystems for electronics development in general. From an EDA perspective, it also takes a village to shepherd the actual chip development with its complex verification and software development tasks. And the types of partnerships often depend on the application domai... » read more

Design Chains Will Drive The Top 5 EDA Trends In 2018


In my prediction piece last year, I made seven trend predictions. Looking back, I did very well compared to what actually happened. For 2018, I am cutting it down to five trends that will impact EDA, but in my mind a lot of the trends will be driven by the ever-evolving ecosystem of design chains from IP though semiconductor to systems and to OEMs. While HBO’s 'Game of Thrones' comes to a con... » read more
