Managing Electrical Communications Better


By Ann Steffora Mutschler Managing the electrical components of signal paths between IC, package, board and system is no small task, and it’s only growing in complexity. Understanding how to correctly optimize the communications within a system is critical given that the I/O power is becoming a significant portion of the overall chip power as the number of bits and the speed at which t... » read more

Like Oil And Water


By Ann Steffora Mutschler For years, the promise and allure of a concurrent design methodology included talk of models, high-level synthesis, virtual prototyping and other system-level technologies all peacefully coexisting in a single design methodology. While it sounds like a good idea, the model-based design approach hasn’t mixed well with the virtual prototype approach. And at l... » read more

Experts At The Table: Concurrent Design


Low-Power Engineering sat down with Marco Brambilla, ASIC design manager at STMicroelectronics; Charlie Janac, president and CEO of Arteris; Mike Gianfagna, vice president of marketing at Atrenta, and Javier DeLaCruz, director of semiconductor packaging at eSilicon. What follows are excerpts of that discussion. LPE: Is concurrent design strategic—meaning is it done at the architectural lev... » read more
