Fault Simulation for AI Safety. Innovation in Verification

Fault Simulation for AI Safety. Innovation in Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 03-27-2024 at 6:00 am

Innovation New

More automotive content 😀

In modern cars, safety is governed as much by AI-based functions as by traditional logic and software. How can these functions be fault-graded for FMEDA analysis? Paul Cunningham (GM, Verification at Cadence), Raúl Camposano (Silicon Catalyst, entrepreneur, former Synopsys CTO and now Silvaco CTO)… Read More

dvcon 2024 keynote min

Keynotes commonly provide a one-sided perspective of a domain, either customer-centric or supplier-centric. Kudos therefore to Cadence’s Paul Cunningham for breaking the mold in offering the first half of his keynote to Anthony Hill, a TI fellow, to talk about outstanding challenges he sees in verification for automotive … Read More


Automotive Electronics Trends are Shaping System Design Constraints

Automotive Electronics Trends are Shaping System Design Constraints
by Bernard Murphy on 03-13-2024 at 6:00 am

Electronics in car

Something is brewing in automotive electronics. Within a one-month window most of the product announcements and pitches to which I am being invited are on automotive topics. Automotive markets have long been one of the primary targets for suppliers to system designers, but this level of alignment in announcements seems more … Read More

Innovation New

A different approach to formally verifying very challenging datapath functions. 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. We’re planning to add a wrinkle… Read More


Photonic Computing – Now or Science Fiction?

Photonic Computing – Now or Science Fiction?

Photonic Computing – Now or Science Fiction?

Cadence recently held an event to dig into the emerging world of photonic computing. Called The Rise of Photonic Computing, it was a two-day event held in San Jose on February 7th and 8th. The first day of the event was also accessible virtually. I attended a panel discussion on the topic – more to come on that. The day delivered a rich… Read More

Celsius Studio min

Continuing the multiphysics theme, I talked recently with Melika Roshandell (Product Management Director at Cadence) on the continuing convergence between MCAD and ECAD. You should know first that Melika has a PhD in mechanical engineering and an extensive background in thermal engineering at Broadcom and Qualcomm, all very… Read More

For observers of EDA markets there is an easily overlooked opportunity for new growth. Today around 50% of EDA revenues come from systems rather than semiconductor companies, from datacenters to automotive, aerospace, energy, and others. In most of these industries total system design depends as much on mechanical and other… Read More

Information Flow Tracking at RTL. Innovation in Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 12-27-2023 at 6:00 am

Innovation New

Explicit and implicit sneak paths to leak or compromise information continue to represent a threat to security. This paper looks a refinement of existing gate level information flow tracking (IFT) techniques extended to RTL, encouraging early-stage security optimization. Paul Cunningham (Senior VP/GM, Verification at … Read More


ML-Guided Model Abstraction. Innovation in Verification

ML-Guided Model Abstraction. Innovation in Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 11-29-2023 at 6:00 am

Innovation New

Formal methods offer completeness in proving functionality but are difficult to scale to system level without abstraction and cannot easily incorporate system aspects outside the logic world such as in cyber-physical systems (CPS). Paul Cunningham (Senior VP/GM, Verification at Cadence), Raúl Camposano (Silicon Catalyst,… Read More
