Embracing Architectural Intent

Embracing Architectural Intent
by Alex Tan on 04-10-2018 at 12:00 pm

During DVCon 2018 in San Jose, one topic widely covered was the necessity of describing and capturing intent. Defining our design intent up-front is crucial to the overall success of a design implementation. It is not limited to applying a process level intent, such as the use of verification intent with embedded assertions in … Read More


Crystal Bulb: Sharing Design Intelligence

Crystal Bulb: Sharing Design Intelligence
by Bernard Murphy on 02-01-2018 at 7:00 am

There is a trend among design companies to want to extract more intelligence, from designs in-process and designs past, in support of optimizing total enterprise efficiency. Design automation companies see opportunity in leveraging this interest since they, in various ways, have a handle on at least part of the underlying data.… Read More


Design Data Intelligence

Design Data Intelligence
by Bernard Murphy on 11-02-2017 at 7:00 am

We have an urge to categorize companies, and when our limited perspective is of a company that helps with design, we categorize it as an EDA company. That was my view of Magillem, but I have commented before that my view is changing. I’m now more inclined to see them more as the design equivalent of a business intelligence organization… Read More


Magillem User Group Meeting

Magillem User Group Meeting
by Bernard Murphy on 10-13-2017 at 7:00 am

Magillem is hosting a user group meeting on October 26th at The Pad in Sunnyvale. User Group meetings are always educational; this one should be especially so for a number of reasons, not least of which is the keynote topic: Expert Systems for Experts.


REGISTER HERE for the meeting in Sunnyvale on October 26[SUP]th[/SUP] from 10:00am… Read More


Virtual Prototyping With Connection to Assembly

Virtual Prototyping With Connection to Assembly
by Bernard Murphy on 08-31-2017 at 7:00 am

Virtual prototyping has become popular both as a way to accelerate software development and to establish a contract between system/software development teams and hardware development and verification. System companies with their tight vertical integration lean naturally to executable contracts to streamline communication… Read More


Simplifying Requirements Tracing

Simplifying Requirements Tracing
by Bernard Murphy on 06-09-2017 at 7:00 am

Requirements traceability is a necessary part of any top-down system specification and design when safety or criticality expectations depend on tightly-defined requirements for subsystems. Traceability in this context means being able to trace from initial documented requirements down through specification and datasheet… Read More


SoC Integration using IP Lifecycle Management Methodology

SoC Integration using IP Lifecycle Management Methodology
by Daniel Payne on 01-27-2017 at 12:00 pm

Small EDA companies often focus on a single point tool and then gradually over time they add new, complementary tools to start creating more of a sub-flow to help you get that next SoC project out on time. The most astute EDA companies often choose to partner with other like-minded companies to create tools that work together well,… Read More


Integrated Spec Design & Documentation for SoC

Integrated Spec Design & Documentation for SoC
by Daniel Payne on 02-08-2015 at 1:00 pm

One challenge in SoC projects is maintaining consistency between the specification, design and documentation throughout the product lifecycle. Imagine the chaos if your specification for power is 300 mW, the design is actually 350 mW and the documentation promises 250 mW. Traditionally the design and documentation process… Read More


TLM Modeling Environment Goes Commercial

TLM Modeling Environment Goes Commercial
by Daniel Payne on 03-20-2014 at 6:00 pm

The most successful EDA companies typically choose a domain where they have deep knowledge, then serve a few leading-edge customers that are willing to work with a start-up in exchange for early access to that new technology. The theory is that if you can satisfy the leading-edge customer then you can also satisfy the rest of the … Read More
