2022 Retrospective. Innovation in Verification

2022 Retrospective. Innovation in Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 01-18-2023 at 10:00 am

Innovation New

As usual in January we start with a look back at the papers we reviewed last year. Paul Cunningham (GM, Verification at Cadence), Raúl Camposano (Silicon Catalyst, entrepreneur, former Synopsys CTO and now Silvaco CTO) and I continue our series on research ideas. As always, feedback welcome. And don’t forget to come see us at DVCon,… Read More


Validating NoC Security. Innovation in Verification

Validating NoC Security. Innovation in Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 12-21-2022 at 6:00 am

Innovation New

Network on Chip (NoC) connectivity is ubiquitous in SoCs, therefore should be an attractive attack vector. Is it possible to prove robustness against a broad and configurable range of threats? Paul Cunningham (Senior VP/GM, Verification at Cadence), Raúl Camposano (Silicon Catalyst, entrepreneur, former Synopsys CTO and… Read More


Functional Safety for Automotive IP

Functional Safety for Automotive IP
by Daniel Payne on 12-15-2022 at 10:00 am

functional safety in automotive electronics

Automotive engineers are familiar with the ISO 26262 standard, as it defines a process for developing functional safety in electronic systems, where human safety is preserved as all of the electronic components are operating correctly and reliably.  Automotive electronics have now grown to cover dozens of applications, and… Read More

Ant Colony Optimization. Innovation in Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 11-28-2022 at 6:00 am

Innovation New

Looking for better ways to search a huge state space in model checking, Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) is one possible approach. 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. As always,… Read More


A Crash Course in the Future of Technology

A Crash Course in the Future of Technology

A crash course in the future of technology

One of the harshest lessons we learned during the recent pandemic is the power of exponentials. As human beings, we are linear thinkers and can’t fathom how doublings of viruses — or technologies — can be destructive and disrupt everything. In my university classes and talks to business executives, I have always had to explain… Read More


SoC Design Closure Just Got Smarter

SoC Design Closure Just Got Smarter
by Daniel Payne on 11-08-2022 at 10:00 am

iterations min

Near the end of any large SoC design project, the RTL code is nearly finished, floorplanning has been done, place and route has a first-pass, static timing has started, but the timing and power goals aren’t met. So, iteration loops continue on blocks and full-chip for weeks or even months. It could take a design team 5-7 days… Read More


Machine Learning Applications in Simulation

Machine Learning Applications in Simulation
by Daniel Nenni on 10-27-2022 at 6:00 am

Xcelium ML min

Machine learning (ML) is finding its way into many of the tools in silicon design flows, to shorten run times and improve the quality of results. Logic simulation seemed an obvious target for ML, though resisted apparent benefits for a while. I suspect this was because we all assumed the obvious application should be to use ML to refine… Read More


Post-Silicon Consistency Checking. Innovation in Verification

Post-Silicon Consistency Checking. Innovation in Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 10-26-2022 at 6:00 am

Innovation New

Many multi-thread consistency problems emerge only in post-silicon testing. Maybe we should take advantage of that fact. 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. As always,… Read More

New Cadence Joint Enterprise Data and AI Platform Dramatically Accelerates AI-Driven Chip Design Development
by Kalar Rajendiran on 10-24-2022 at 10:00 am

1 Cadence Joint Enterprise Data and AI JedAI Platform

Without data, there is no computing field to talk about, no technology world to awe at and not much of a semiconductor industry to work in. There is no argument that data is the foundational piece for everything, has been to date and will continue to be. While processing an application’s input data is essential to serve the intended… 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
