Automated HW/SW Co-Design Of DSP Systems Composed Of Processors And Hardware Accelerators


Seemingly overnight, data acquisition and digital signal processing have gone from a hidden background function in special purpose-built subsystems, such as PC graphics cards and airborne missile guidance systems, to the foreground in the form of in-ear IoT devices, smartphones, and autonomous vehicles. As the number of smart data-acquisition devices grows, so does the amount of data requiring ... » read more

Managing EDA’s Rapid Growth Expectations


The EDA industry has been doing very well recently, but how long this run will continue is a matter of debate. EDA is an industry ripe for disruption due to rapid changes in chip architectures, end markets, and a long list of new technologies. In addition, recent geopolitical tensions are bringing a lot more attention to this small sector upon which the whole semiconductor industry rests. De... » read more

Chiplets Taking Root As Silicon-Proven Hard IP


Chiplets are all the rage today, and for good reason. With the various ways to design a semiconductor-based system today, IP reuse via chiplets appears to be an effective and feasible solution, and a potentially low-cost alternative to shrinking everything to the latest process node. To enable faster time to market, common IP or technology that already has been silicon-proven can be utilized... » read more

Fixed-Point And Floating-Point FMCW Radar Signal Processing With Tensilica DSPs


Automotive Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) applications are increasingly demanding radar modules with better capability and performance. These applications require sophisticated radar processing algorithms and powerful Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) to run them. Because these embedded systems have limited power and cost budgets, the DSP’s Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) needs t... » read more

Design And Verification Methodologies Breaking Down


Tools, methodologies and flows that have been in place since the dawn of semiconductor design are breaking down, but this time there isn't a large pool of researchers coming up with potential solutions. The industry is on its own to formulate those ideas, and that will take a lot of cooperation between EDA companies, fabs, and designers, which has not been their strong point in the past. It ... » read more
