Optimize Designs And Mitigate Thermal Threats In High-Current Automotive Applications


By Melika Roshandell, Cadence Design overview Current density increases at the PCB/package level result in local temperature increases known as hotspots. In addition to highlighting the heat generated locally around and underneath certain components at the PCB or IC package level due to component power consumption, the Celsius Thermal Solver can calculate the heat generated by the Joule ef... » read more

Monitoring Chips After Manufacturing


New regulations and variability of advanced process nodes are forcing chip designers to insert additional capabilities in silicon to help with comprehension, debug, analytics, safety, security, and design optimization. The impact of this will be far-reaching as the industry discusses what capabilities can be shared between these divergent tasks, the amount of silicon area to dedicate to it, ... » read more
