Week In Review: Auto, Security, Pervasive Computing


Automotive, mobility Cadence is now an official technology partner of the McLaren Formula 1 Team. The team will use Cadence’s Fidelity CFD Software to look at the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) of the airflow around the race cars and predict how a car design will affect the airflow. Infineon uncorked its XENSIV 60 GHz automotive radar sensor for in-cabin monitoring systems. One use ca... » read more

Week In Review: Design, Low Power


Synopsys and Juniper Networks are forming a new, separate company that will provide the industry with an open silicon photonics platform that will include integrated lasers, optical amplifiers, and a full suite of photonic components to form a complete solution that will be accessible through a Process Design Kit (PDK). The new company is being formed, in part, from the carve-out of integrated ... » read more

Data Center Architectures In Flux


Data center architectures are becoming increasingly customized and heterogeneous, shifting from processors made by a single vendor to a mix of processors and accelerators made by multiple vendors — including system companies' own design teams. Hyperscaler data centers have been migrating toward increasingly heterogeneous architectures for the past half decade or so, spurred by the rising c... » 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

CDNLive 2019: The Verification Ecosystem Is Growing Stronger And Stronger


Ecosystems are not only fascinating when it comes to processors like Arm, MIPS, x86, and RISC-V (as I have written before) or for semiconductor technologies like TSMC, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, and Samsung; they are key for success in verification as well. CDNLive Silicon Valley was, again, a great example of the verification ecosystem in action. It showcased the different engines verification tools run... » read more
