Design For Silicon Success At 7nm

Next-generation automotive, mobile and high-performance computing applications demand the use of 7nm SoCs to deliver greater functionality and higher performance at much lower power. According to Gartner, when compared to 16nm/14nm technology, 7nm offers 35% speed improvement, 65% less power, and 3.3X density improvement. Hence, despite a whopping cost of $271M — per Gartner's estimate — to... » read more

Chip-Package-Board Optimization: The Future Of Integrated Co-Design

Multi-die and three-dimensional packages have made breakout and routing of extremely high-pin-count devices on PCBs very difficult. Keeping track of all the signals and pins is also a task that has just about outgrown current methods. Many companies simply use a spreadsheet for tracking signals. With no central database or accurate device modeling and rule-based optimization, design intent is o... » read more
