What a Difference an Architecture Makes: Optimizing AI for IoT

What a Difference an Architecture Makes: Optimizing AI for IoT
by Bernard Murphy on 05-28-2020 at 6:00 am

HLS PPA results

Last week Mentor hosted a virtual event on designing an AI accelerator with HLS, integrating it together with an Arm Corstone SSE-200 platform and characterizing/optimizing for performance and power. Though in some ways a recap of earlier presentations, there were some added insights in this session, particularly in characterizing… Read More


The Growing Relevance of IP-XACT in Today’s Complex Designs

The Growing Relevance of IP-XACT in Today’s Complex Designs

image001 1

The life of a SoC designer is an unenviable one. Not only does he have to work in a landscape where competition is intense but he also has to collaborate effectively with globally dispersed teams to ensure the design meets the project timeline.  Then there are also the risks, more so in the current pandemic! There is the constant fear… Read More

Synopsys Announces IP Supporting 5G’s Game Changing Low Power IoT Spec

Synopsys Announces IP Supporting 5G’s Game Changing Low Power IoT Spec
by Tom Simon on 05-22-2020 at 6:00 am

5G NB IoT Processor from Synopsys

If you are like me, you will get a 5G phone because of the high bandwidth it offers. However, there is a lot more to 5G than just fast data. In fact, one of the appealing features of 5G is low bandwidth communication. This is useful for edge devices that perform infrequent and low volume data transfers and depend on long battery life. Prior… Read More


Atos Crafts NoC, Pad Ring, More Using Defacto

Atos Crafts NoC, Pad Ring, More Using Defacto
by Bernard Murphy on 05-21-2020 at 6:00 am

Mont Blanc

I’ve talked before about how Defacto provides a platform for scripted RTL assembly. Kind of a rethink of the IP-XACT concept but without need to get into XML (it works directly with SV), and with a more relaxed approach in which you decide what you want to automate and how you want to script it.

They’re hosting a webinar on May 28th 10-11am… Read More


Collaboration Flow for Moore’s Law versus More than Moore

Collaboration Flow for Moore’s Law versus More than Moore

Figure 1 Foundry

The current Coronavirus crisis is inflicting a lot of pain on people, companies, and governments. I hope I am not getting in trouble with my reasoning, but if you look closely, there are also some “positives” to the Covid-19 crisis.

– It is stress-testing our infrastructure and telling us where we need to improve – as country,… Read More


Is Mutation Testing Worth the Effort? Innovation in Verification

Is Mutation Testing Worth the Effort? Innovation in Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 05-19-2020 at 6:00 am

innovation

Mutation testing is an intriguing idea, but is it useful? Paul Cunningham (GM of Verification at Cadence), Jim Hogan and I continue our series on novel research ideas, here looking at a paper examining the pros and cons of this topic. Feel free to comment if you agree or disagree.

HCL Offers Tightly Integrated Design Management Solution for Virtuoso

HCL Offers Tightly Integrated Design Management Solution for Virtuoso
by Tom Simon on 05-18-2020 at 6:00 am

Flexium for Virtuoso

The road to a truly usable design management solution for electronic design has been a long and twisty one. Initially just handling EDA tool data was a struggle, let alone addressing mutli-user and multi-site needs. Of course, all along every EDA tool development company was internally using software revision control, which … Read More
