A New Reuse Paradigm To Take 2.5D Packaging Technology Mainstream

With all of the recent product implementations and demonstrations of the technical viability of 2.5D technology, there is a lot of excitement around its potential. However, as with any new technology, there are concerns with cost and risk that limit mainstream adoption. Cost reduction and risk mitigation require some level of volume production, and therein lies a classic Catch-22. Is there a wa... » read more

Software Design Moves Virtual Prototyping Into The Mainstream

With the high level of integration of CPUs, GPUs, and DSPs in today’s System-on-Chip (SoC) and ASIC devices, software is becoming a primary driver of system innovation. This, along with the increasing pressure to reduce system development time, makes it critical to get a working hardware prototype into the hands of the various software teams as quickly as possible. Traditional prototyping met... » read more
