Chip and I/O Modeling for System-level Power Noise Analysis and Optimization

Chip and I/O Modeling for System-level Power Noise Analysis and Optimization
by Daniel Payne on 05-14-2013 at 4:13 pm

Cornelia Golovanovworks at LSI Corp in Pennsylvania and is an EMI expert that provides EDA tool and methodology advise to design groups. She earned a PhD in microelectronics and radioelectricity from the Institut national polytechnique de Grenoble, and joined Lucent out of school 12 years ago. We had a chance to talk by phone about… Read More


Customer Stories at DAC#50

Customer Stories at DAC#50
by Daniel Nenni on 05-05-2013 at 8:10 pm

When you think Apache Design you probably think Low Power Design and what stuffed animal will they give away at DAC. The other thing you should think about is how the top semiconductor companies around the world use Apache products for leading edge semiconductor design. Demos are fine, but there is nothing like talking directly … Read More


Best Practice for RTL Power Design for Mobile

Best Practice for RTL Power Design for Mobile
by Paul McLellan on 04-25-2013 at 11:54 am

Mobile devices are taking over the world. If you want lots of graphs and data then look at Mary Meeker’s presentation that I blogged about earlier this week. The graph on the right is just one datapoint, showing that mobile access to the internet is probably up to about 15% now from a standing start 5 years ago.

Of course, one obvious… Read More


SoC Power Integrity Challenges

SoC Power Integrity Challenges
by Daniel Payne on 04-08-2013 at 4:46 pm

At DAC in 2012 I visited a few dozen EDA companies and blogged 32 articles, however I didn’t get to see what Apache Design (now a subsidiary of ANSYS) had to say. I did have 20 minutes today to watch their latest video on SoC Power Integrity Challenges and decided to share what I learned. If you want to watch the video at Tech Online,… Read More


Watch the Clock

Watch the Clock
by Paul McLellan on 03-05-2013 at 2:24 pm

Clock gating is one of the most basic weapons in the armoury for reducing dynamic power on a design. All modern synthesis tools can insert clock gating cells to shut down clocking to registers when the contents of the register are not changing. The archetypal case is a register which sometimes loads a new value (when an enable signal… Read More


Another Winner at DesignCon

Another Winner at DesignCon
by Daniel Payne on 02-08-2013 at 5:44 pm

After a show like DesignConwraps up we get a chance to ask ourself what it all meant, and how was this year different than last year. Reading through many posts about DesignCon I came to discover that the Awards at DesignCon are less contentious than at CES, and also that ANSYSreceived a DesignVision awardfor the 2nd year running. … Read More


A Brief History of Apache Design

A Brief History of Apache Design
by Daniel Nenni on 01-16-2013 at 3:00 pm

Apache Design Solutions was founded in 2001 by Andrew Yang and three researchers from HP Labs (Norman Chang, Shen Lin, Weize Xie). They realized that engineers striving to meet the goal of increased device miniaturization, as defined by Moore’s Law, would eventually hit stumbling blocks in their progress. The founding team believed… Read More

by Paul McLellan on 01-11-2013 at 5:12 pm

In Pune at the start of the month, Norman Chang, Ting-Sheng Ku, Jai Pollayil of Apache/Ansys and NVIDIA presented and ESD check methodologywith Fast Full-chip Static and Macro-level Dynamic Solutions . ESD stands for Elecro-Static Discharge and is basically injecting very high static voltages (think how your hand gets charged… Read More
