Increasing eFPGA Density


How to boost embedded FPGA density to the point where it is competitive with traditional FPGAs, at a lower cost and faster turnaround time. Geoff Tate, CEO of Flex Logix, talks about the importance of interconnects and standard cells in adding flexibility into chips, and why eFPGAs are suddenly gaining attention. » read more

Cloud Characterization


Library characterization is a compute-intensive task that takes days to weeks to complete. Runtimes for library characterization are increasing due to larger library sizes, higher number of operating conditions to characterize, as well as the need for statistical variation modeling in libraries at 22/20nm and smaller process nodes. Cloud platforms offer a way to accelerate library characterizat... » read more

How Semiconductor IP Became Critical To SoC Design


By Mark Templeton In 1991, I had the good fortune to be a member of the founding team of Artisan Components. We started the company believing that demand was about to appear for semiconductor intellectual property. We had a few data points. We knew that before a company could start a new chip project, they first had to design and verify all kinds of generic building blocks – things like ... » read more
