The Race For Better Computational Software

Anirudh Devgan, president of Cadence, sat down with Semiconductor Engineering to talk about computational software, why it's so critical at the edge and in AI systems, and where the big changes are across the semiconductor industry. What follows are excerpts of that conversation. SE: There is no consistent approach to how data will be processed at the edge, in part because there is no consis... » 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
