Challenges With Adaptive Control


Historically, the performance and power consumption of a system was controlled by what could be done at design time, but chips today are becoming a lot more adaptive. This has become a necessity for cutting edge nodes, but also provides a lot of additional benefits at the expense of greater complexity and verification challenges. Design margins are a tradeoff between performance and yield. C... » read more

Taking Power Much More Seriously


An increasing number of electronic systems are becoming limited by thermal issues, and the only way to solve them is by elevating energy consumption to a primary design concern rather than a last-minute optimization technique. The optimization of any system involves a complex balance of static and dynamic techniques. The goal is to achieve maximum functionality and performance in the smalles... » read more

Week In Review: Design, Low Power


Ansys will acquire cloud simulation provider OnScale. OnScale's technology will be used to provide a cloud-native, web-based UI for device-independent access to Ansys’ simulation technologies as well as creation of simulation-based vertical applications. “OnScale’s cloud-native technology combines the limitless compute power of cloud supercomputers with an intuitive web-based front end, m... » read more

Week In Review: Design, Low Power


Tools Vtool released a new version of its Cogita visual debug platform. New features aim to provide faster debug capabilities, including visual representation of test results using log files as input, improved manipulation and navigation throughout big logs, ML algorithms to classify data and find the relationship between inputs, and the ability to merge and compare test flow of two different ... » read more

Week In Review: Auto, Security, Pervasive Computing


Pervasive computing — IoT, edge, cloud, data center, and back Cadence announced it has found a cost-conscience way to scale capacity for 3D electromagnetic (EM) simulations using a hybrid cloud consisting of local computing resources and cloud services from Amazon Web Service (AWS). Data stays safe on the local resources, and, if more computing resources are needed, encrypted simulation-spec... » read more

April’19 Startup Funding: Corporate Gushers


It was another rich month for startups, large and small. In April’s top 11 funding rounds, five were investments by big corporations or corporate venture capital funds—an investor consortium led by the SoftBank Vision Fund, PayPal, Ford Motor, NTT DoCoMo, and HAPSMobile, a joint venture of SoftBank Group and AeroVironment. Those 11 investments totaled $3.74 billion. Intel Capital was als... » read more
