Pushing The Limits Of Hardware-Assisted Verification


As semiconductor complexity continues to escalate, so does the reliance on hardware-assisted simulation, emulation, and prototyping. Since chip design first began, engineers have complained their design goals exceeded the capabilities of the tools. This is especially evident in verification and debug, which continue to dominate the design cycle. Big-iron tooling has enabled design teams to k... » read more

Electro-Thermal Signoff For Next Gen 3DICs


Multi-die designs, 2.5D and 3D, have been rising in popularity as they offer tremendously increased levels of integration, a smaller footprint, performance gains and more. While they are attractive for many applications, they also create design bottlenecks in the areas of thermal management and power delivery. For 3DICs, in addition to the complex SoC/PCB interactions seen in their 2D counterpa... » read more

The Need For 3D IC Packaging And Design Evolution


If you are familiar with Moore’s Law, you’ve probably read pronouncements that the premise of transistor counts doubling each year is reaching a wall due to complex process technologies and device physics limitations. Regardless of how well transistor counts continue to scale, market segments continue to drive the thirst for more compute performance and fast time to markets. Artificial i... » read more
