Webinar: Post-layout Circuit Sizing Optimization

Webinar: Post-layout Circuit Sizing Optimization
by Daniel Payne on 09-29-2022 at 4:00 pm

IC design workflow min

My IC design career started out with manually sizing transistors to improve performance, while minimizing layout area and power consumption. Fortunately we don’t have to do manual transistor sizing anymore, thanks to EDA tools that are quicker and more accurate than manual methods. MunEDA is an EDA vendor that has developed… Read More


New ECO Product – Synopsys PrimeClosure

New ECO Product – Synopsys PrimeClosure
by Daniel Payne on 09-29-2022 at 10:00 am

ECO types min

New EDA product launches are always an exciting time, and I could hear the energy and optimism from the voice of Manoj Chacko at Synopsys in our Zoom call about Synopsys PrimeClosure. During the physical implementation phase for IC designs there’s a big challenge to reach timing closure, and with advanced nodes the number… Read More


Test Ordering for Agile. Innovation in Verification

Test Ordering for Agile. Innovation in Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 09-29-2022 at 6:00 am

Innovation New

Can we order regression tests for continuous integration (CI) flows, minimizing time between code commits and feedback on failures? Paul Cunningham (Senior VP/GM, Verification at Cadence), Raúl Camposano (Silicon Catalyst, entrepreneur, former Synopsys CTO and now Silvaco CTO) and I continue our series on research ideas.… Read More


Whatever Happened to the Big 5G Airport Controversy? Plus A Look To The Future

Whatever Happened to the Big 5G Airport Controversy? Plus A Look To The Future

Figure1 2

In December 2021, just weeks before Verizon and AT&T were set to enable their new radio access networks in the 5G mid-band spectrum (also known as C-Band), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) released a Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin (SAIB) and a statement notifying operators of potential 5G interference… Read More

How to Accelerate Ansys RedHawk SC in the Cloud

 

As we all know, growing complexity of IC designs and the resulting numbers of EDA tools and design steps lead to very intricate workflows which require compute cycles that outstrip current compute capacity of most IC enterprises. The obvious question is how to efficiently leverage near infinite compute capacity in the … Read More


3D IC – Managing the System-level Netlist

3D IC – Managing the System-level Netlist
by Daniel Payne on 09-27-2022 at 10:00 am

2.5D IC min

I just did a Google search for “3D IC”, and was stunned to see it return a whopping 476,000 results. This topic is trending, because more companies are using advanced IC packaging to meet their requirements, and yet the engineers doing the 3D IC design have new challenges to overcome. One of those challenges is creating… Read More


UCIe Specification Streamlines Multi-Die System Design with Chiplets

UCIe Specification Streamlines Multi-Die System Design with Chiplets
by Dave Bursky on 09-26-2022 at 10:00 am

protocol stack 1

Over the last few years, the design of application-specific ICs as well as high-performance CPUs and other complex ICs has hit a proverbial wall. This wall is built from several issues: first, chip sizes have grown so large that they can fill the entire mask reticle and that could limit future growth. Second, the large chip size impacts… Read More


Methodology to Minimize the Impact of Duty Cycle Distortion in Clock Distribution Networks

Methodology to Minimize the Impact of Duty Cycle Distortion in Clock Distribution Networks
by Kalar Rajendiran on 09-26-2022 at 6:00 am

Figure Gate Failing to Reach 1.1V

Synchronous circuits dominate the electronic world because clocking eases the design of circuits compared to asynchronous circuits. At the same time, clocking also introduces its share of challenges to overcome. No wonder, a tremendous amount of time and effort have been spent over the years on developing and implementing … Read More

Semifore is Supplying Pain Relief for Some World Changing Applications

In a recent post, I discussed how Samtec is fueling the AI revolution. In that post, I talked about how smart everything seems to be everywhere, changing the way we work, the way we think about our health and ultimately improving life on the planet. These are lofty statements, but the evidence is growing that the newest wave of applications… Read More


Load-Managing Verification Hardware Acceleration in the Cloud

Load-Managing Verification Hardware Acceleration in the Cloud
by Bernard Murphy on 09-22-2022 at 6:00 am

Scheduling emulation min

There’s a reason the verification hardware accelerator business is growing so impressively. Modern SoCs – now routinely multi-billion gate devices – must be verified/validated against massively demanding test plans, requiring high levels of test coverage. Use cases extend all the way up to firmware, OSes, even application… Read More
