Cadence Debuts Celsius Studio for In-Design Thermal Optimization

Cadence Debuts Celsius Studio for In-Design Thermal Optimization
by Bernard Murphy on 02-21-2024 at 6:00 am

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


Cadence Claims the CFD High Ground with a New GPU-Based Accelerator

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


2023 Retrospective. Innovation in Verification

2023 Retrospective. Innovation in Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 01-25-2024 at 6:00 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. We’re planning on starting a live series… Read More


Information Flow Tracking at RTL. Innovation in Verification

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


Cadence Integrates Power Integrity Analysis and Fix into Design

Cadence Integrates Power Integrity Analysis and Fix into Design
by Bernard Murphy on 11-21-2023 at 6:00 am

Voltus Insight AI min

As integration levels increase, clock frequencies rise, and feature sizes shrink it is not surprising that all or most aspects of semiconductor design become more complex and demand more from design technologies. One example where the traditional approach is breaking down is in optimizing power distribution networks (PDNs)… Read More


Accelerating Development for Audio and Vision AI Pipelines

Accelerating Development for Audio and Vision AI Pipelines
by Bernard Murphy on 11-15-2023 at 6:00 am

AI pipeline min

I wrote previously that the debate over which CPU rules the world (Arm versus RISC-V) somewhat misses the forest for the trees in modern systems. This is nowhere more obvious that in intelligent audio and vision: smart doorbells, speakers, voice activated remotes, intelligent earbuds, automotive collision avoidance, self-parking,… Read More


New STA Features from Cadence

New STA Features from Cadence
by Daniel Payne on 11-13-2023 at 10:00 am

Tempus DRA Suite

Static Timing Analysis (STA) has been an EDA tool category for many years now, yet with each new generation of smaller foundry process nodes come new physical effects that impact timing, requiring new analysis features to be added. For advanced process nodes, there are five different types of analysis that must be included when… Read More


Developing Effective Mixed Signal Models. Innovation in Verification

Developing Effective Mixed Signal Models. Innovation in Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 10-30-2023 at 6:00 am

Innovation New

Mixed-signal modeling is becoming more important as interaction between digital and analog circuitry become more closely intertwined. This level of modeling depends critically on sufficiently accurate yet fast behavioral models for analog components. Paul Cunningham (Senior VP/GM, Verification at Cadence), Raúl Camposano… Read More


Assertion Synthesis Through LLM. Innovation in Verification

Assertion Synthesis Through LLM. Innovation in Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 09-28-2023 at 6:00 am

Innovation New

Assertion based verification is a very productive way to catch bugs, however assertions are hard enough to write that assertion-based coverage is not as extensive as it could be. Is there a way to simplify developing assertions to aid in increasing that coverage? Paul Cunningham (Senior VP/GM, Verification at Cadence), Raúl … Read More
