Cadence and Green Hills Share More Security Thoughts at ARM Techcon

Cadence and Green Hills Share More Security Thoughts at ARM Techcon
by Randy Smith on 10-15-2019 at 10:00 am

On Wednesday, October 9, 2019, I had the pleasure of spending the day at ARM Techcon at the San Jose Convention Center. In the morning, in addition to getting some sneak peeks into the exhibitor area, I attended some of the morning keynote presentations, which focused on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) topics.… Read More


Accellera IP Security Standard: A Start

Accellera IP Security Standard: A Start
by Bernard Murphy on 10-10-2019 at 5:00 am

I mentioned some time ago (a DVCon or two ago) that Accellera had started working on a standard to quantify IP security. At the time I talked about some of the challenges in the task but nevertheless applauded the effort. You’ve got to start somewhere and some way to quantify this is better than none, as long as it doesn’t deliver misleading… Read More


Cadence Celsius Heats Up 3D System-Level Electro-Thermal Modeling Market

Cadence Celsius Heats Up 3D System-Level Electro-Thermal Modeling Market
by Tom Simon on 09-24-2019 at 6:00 am

A few years back people were saying that the “EDA” problem was solved and that design tools had become commodity. At the same time people hailed ADAS, smart homes, mobile communication and AI as the frontiers of electronics.  Perhaps it could be said that layout tools, routers, placers, and circuit simulators had largely matured… Read More


Lint for Implementation

Lint for Implementation
by Bernard Murphy on 08-29-2019 at 6:00 am

When I was at Atrenta, we took advantage of opportunities to expand our static tool (aka linting) first to clock domain crossing (CDC) analysis and DFT compatibility and later to static analysis of timing constraints, all of which have importance in implementation. CDC is commonly thought of as an RTL-centric analysis, however,… Read More


Tensilica DNA 100 Brings the AI Inference Solution for Level 2 ADAS ECUs and Level 4 Autonomous Driving

Tensilica DNA 100 Brings the AI Inference Solution for Level 2 ADAS ECUs and Level 4 Autonomous Driving

I recently wrote about Tensilica’s HiFi DSPs which played a significant role at Cadence’s Automotive Design Summit which was held on the Cadence San Jose campus at the end of July. That article focused on infotainment while briefly touching on Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS). ADAS is NOT synonymous with… Read More


Tensilica HiFi DSPs for What I Want to Hear, and What I Don’t Want to Hear

Tensilica HiFi DSPs for What I Want to Hear, and What I Don’t Want to Hear

It seems every day we see a new article (or ten) on autonomous driving. It is an especially hot topic, and it will happen someday. For now, we can dream about it, and many people are working on it. But for the present, the technology in a car that commands my attention is audio. I’ve been a musician since 4th grade. I still … Read More


Tortuga Webinar: Ensuring System Level Security Through HW/SW Verification

Tortuga Webinar: Ensuring System Level Security Through HW/SW Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 08-08-2019 at 6:00 am

Image Removed We all know (I hope) that security is important so we’re willing to invest time and money in this area but there are a couple of problems. First there’s no point in making your design secure if it’s not competitive and making it competitive is hard enough, so the great majority of resource and investment is going to go into… Read More


Virtuoso Adapts to Address Cyber Physical Systems

Virtuoso Adapts to Address Cyber Physical Systems
by Tom Simon on 07-29-2019 at 2:00 pm

LIDAR is a controversial topic, with even Elon Musk weighing in on whether it will ever be feasible for use in self driving cars. His contention is that the sensors will remain too expensive and potentially be unreliable because of their mechanical complexity. However, each of the sensors available for autonomous driving have … Read More


#DAC56 – Optimizing Verification Throughput for Advanced Designs in a Connected World

#DAC56 – Optimizing Verification Throughput for Advanced Designs in a Connected World
by Daniel Payne on 07-24-2019 at 10:00 am

It was the final day of DAC56 and my head was already spinning from information overload after meeting so many people and hearing so many presentations, but I knew that IC functional verification was a huge topic and looming bottleneck for many SoC design teams, so I made a last-minute email request to attend a luncheon panel discussion… Read More


Smart Hearing is Heating Up

Smart Hearing is Heating Up
by Bernard Murphy on 07-10-2019 at 6:00 am

A lot of the attention in intelligent systems is on object detection in still or video images but there’s another very active area, in smart audio. Amazon and Google smart speakers may be the best-known applications but there are more obvious (and perhaps less novelty-driven) applications in enhancing the hearing devices we already… Read More
