Week In Review: Design, Low Power


MoSys, a provider of SRAM solutions and networking accelerators, and Peraso Technologies, a provider of 5G mmWave devices, are merging. Stockholders of Peraso are expected to hold a 61% equity interest in the combined company, with the remaining 39% equity interest to be retained by the stockholders of MoSys. Peraso CEO Ronald Glibbery said, "By joining with MoSys, we believe we can deliver a b... » read more

Week In Review: Auto, Security, Pervasive Computing


Automotive Arm announced a new software architecture, two reference hardware implementations, and its role leading a new industry group that will work on open-source software for automotive use. The Scalable Open Architecture for Embedded Edge (SOAFEE) is based on Arm’s Project Cassini and SystemReady, aims to help the automotive industry move to software-defined systems by tackling the comp... » read more

Blog Review: Sept. 15


Synopsys' Ian Land and Ricardo Borges examine how radiation modeling can help ensure semiconductor components will survive while housed in equipment that is orbiting our planet or traveling through deep space over extensive periods of time. Siemens EDA's Rich Edelman explores why writing coverage is an art requiring imagination, practice, and patience, along with some tips on how to improve.... » read more

Improving Robustness And Minimizing Over-Pessimism In The Face of Rising Design Variability


Part 1 of this blog explored the problems facing designers working on Systems-on-a-Chip (SoCs) targeting energy-efficient design, and how Synopsys’ PrimeShield design robustness solution can help optimize designs for lower power while achieving aggressive time-to-market goals. This last part will delve into how the PrimeShield design robustness solution can help SoC designers optimize thei... » read more

Long-Haul Trucking With Fewer Drivers


The trucking industry is betting heavily on increasing levels of autonomy and electrification to reduce the cost of moving goods and to overcome persistent problems. The economics of autonomous driving are compelling, not least of which is an almost perpetual shortage of qualified drivers. But there also are a number of technical hurdles to making this work. On top of the challenges facing t... » read more

SLM Is Changing The Complete Device Lifecycle Process


Amit Sanghani, Vice President of Engineering, HW-Analytics and Test Group at Synopsys, discusses how Silicon Lifecycle Management (SLM) is changing the way we look at the complete device lifecycle process and how it can enable heightened levels of visibility in device performance, reliability and security. Learn how SLM is well placed to address the challenges that occur at every stage of cut... » read more

Wrestling With Analog At 3nm


Analog engineers are facing big challenges at 3nm, forcing them to come up with creative solutions to a widening set of issues at each new process node. Still, these problems must be addressed, because no digital chip will work without at least some analog circuitry. As fabrication technologies shrink, digital logic improves in some combination of power, performance, and area. The process te... » read more

Integrated Ethernet PCS And PHY IP For 400G/800G Hyperscale Data Centers


Ethernet has become the primary network protocol of choice for the required server-to-server communication in hyperscale data centers, as it allows hyperscalers to disaggregate network switches and install their software operating systems independently. Ethernet enables cost-effective, dense, open switches and networking technologies which reduce cost/power per bit with transistor scaling. Ethe... » read more

Will Monolithic 3D DRAM Happen?


As DRAM scaling slows, the industry will need to look for other ways to keep pushing for more and cheaper bits of memory. The most common way of escaping the limits of planar scaling is to add the third dimension to the architecture. There are two ways to accomplish that. One is in a package, which is already happening. The second is to sale the die into the Z axis, which which has been a to... » read more

Blog Review: Sept. 8


Synopsys' Scott Durrant considers the IP used in HPC SoCs and the efforts to simultaneously minimize data movement and maximize the speed at which data is transferred from one location to another, whether that data transfer is across long distances or from one chip to another within a server. Cadence's Paul McLellan looks into a new version of the Rowhammer DRAM vulnerability that can allow ... » read more
