S2C has been shipping FPGA prototyping platforms for SoC verification for almost two decades, and many of its customers are developing SoCs and silicon IP for Bluetooth applications. Prototyping Bluetooth designs before silicon has yielded improved design efficiencies through more comprehensive system validation, and… Read More
Modern day chips are increasingly complex with stringent quality requirements, very demanding performance requirement and very low power consumption requirement. Verification of these chips is very time consuming and accounts for approximately 70% of the simulation workload on EDA server farms. As software-based simulators… Read More
The first chiplets focused summit took place last month. So many accomplished speakers gave keynote talks on what direction should and would the Chiplets ecosystem evolution take. Corigine presented the keynote on what direction hardware emulation should and would evolve for speeding up chiplet- based designs. During a pre-conference… Read More
In a two-part series, Lauro Rizzatti examines why three kinds of hardware-assisted verification engines are a must have for today’s semiconductor designs. To do so, he interviewed Siemens EDA’s Vijay Chobisa and Juergen Jaeger to learn more about the Veloce hardware-assisted verification systems.
What follows is part one,… Read More
A few months ago, I wrote about Corigine and their MimicPro FPGA prototyping system and MimicTurbo GT card solutions. That article went into the various features and benefits of the two solutions, with the requirements for next-generation prototyping solutions as the backdrop. You can access that article here. At 250+ employees,… Read More
Lauro Rizzatti recently interviewed Jean-Marie Brunet, vice president of product management and product engineering in the Scalable Verification Solution division at Siemens EDA, about why hardware-assisted verification is a must have for today’s semiconductor designs. A condensed version of their discussion is below.… Read More
Now that the 58th Design Automation Conference held this year in San Francisco has concluded, we take a minute to look back at the results and ascertain what it meant for our company.
Unfortunately, many popular tradeshows held in the time of Covid have suffered a drop in attendance, and DAC was no exception. Despite this however,… Read More
Every now and then, disruptive technology is brought to market, challenging the way things have been done to that point. We are all familiar with many such technologies. The rhetorical question is, how many of us were aware, recognized and acknowledged those technologies before they became well established? For example, a startup… Read More
Our latest book has finally been published! A PDF version of “Prototypical II – The Practice of FPGA Prototyping for SoC Design” is now available in the SemiWiki book section. The first book “Prototypical – The Emergence of FPGA Prototyping for SoC Design” was published in 2016 and a lot … Read More
