Critical Success Factors When Implementing Simulation Led Design Exploration


Upfront simulation in the design stage of product development has long held great promise. It lets engineers find design flaws earlier and explore more alternatives. There is little doubt that such an effort offers tangible benefits to engineering organizations. But several obstacles often prevent companies from implementing a successful simulation initiative. The knowledge, skill, and time ... » read more

Good Times For Analog Designers


By Ann Steffora Mutschler For a number of technological reasons, analog/mixed-signal design and low-power design are converging, and with that comes both challenges and opportunities. As far as challenges go, process variations at 14nm, 20nm and even 28nm have increased significantly to include DFM impacts such as layout-delay effects. On the digital side, those process changes affect... » read more
