System-Level Modeling using your Web Browser

System-Level Modeling using your Web Browser

VisualSim example

I’ve simulated IC designs at the transistor-level with SPICE, gate-level, RTL with Verilog, and even used cycle-based functional simulators. Sure, they each worked well, but only for the domain and purpose they were designed for. Industry analyst, Gary Smith predicted that the IC world would soon move to system-level… Read More

PUFiot Supporting Secure Applications

In June 2021, eMemory Technology hosted a webinar titled “PUFiot: A PUFrt-based Secure Coprocessor.” You can read a blog leading up to that webinar here. PUFiot is a novel high-security crypto coprocessor. You can access a recording of that entire webinar from eMemory’s Resources page. While the focus of that webinar was to present… Read More


The Journey of DRAM Continues

The Journey of DRAM Continues
by Arabinda Das on 09-26-2021 at 10:00 am

HBM

The field of DRAM is fascinating as it continues to grow and innovate. For the past ten years, I have often read that DRAM is running out of steam because of its difficulty to scale the capacitor, and yet it continues to evolve since invented by Dr. R. Dennard at IBM. In 1966, he introduced the concept of a transistor memory cell consisting… Read More

Industry is Quickly Scaling

Ethernet speed evolution has kept a nice pace over the years even without any competing communications standard. And there are no signs of that slowing down, thanks to innovative companies deploying creative design techniques to keep delivering high-performance SerDes IP solutions. SerDes plays an integral role in implementing… Read More

Galileo min

Science texts like to present the evolution of knowledge as step-function transitions, from ignorance to wisdom. We used to think the sun revolved around the earth. Then Galileo appeared, and we instantly realized that the earth revolves around the sun. But reality is always messier, as Galileo understood all too well. The transition… Read More


Arm Shifts Up With SOAFEE

Arm Shifts Up With SOAFEE
by Bernard Murphy on 09-21-2021 at 6:00 am

SOAFEE min

We’re always hearing about shift-left, advances enabling system designers to start various aspects of their development and validation earlier. In support of this goal for automotive developers, Arm recently announced their Scalable Open Architecture for Embedded Edge (SOAFEE). SOAFEE is a software platform (with reference… Read More

Barnum and Baily Circus

Having spent 40 years in the semiconductor industry, many years working with Arm and even publishing the definitive history book “Mobile Unleashed: The Origin and Evolution of ARM Processors in Our Devices” plus having spent more than 20 years working with China based companies, I found the recent Arm China media circus quite … Read More


Smoothing the Path to NoC Adoption

Smoothing the Path to NoC Adoption

Arteris customers min 1

We’re creatures of habit. As technologists, we want to move fast and break things, but only on our terms. Everything else should remain the same or improve with minimum disruption. No fair breaking the way we do our jobs as we plot a path to greatness. This is irrational, of course. Real progress often demands essential changes where… Read More
