Cadence and Green Hills Share More Security Thoughts at ARM Techcon

Cadence and Green Hills Share More Security Thoughts at ARM Techcon
by Randy Smith on 10-15-2019 at 10:00 am

On Wednesday, October 9, 2019, I had the pleasure of spending the day at ARM Techcon at the San Jose Convention Center. In the morning, in addition to getting some sneak peeks into the exhibitor area, I attended some of the morning keynote presentations, which focused on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) topics.… Read More


AI Chip Prototyping Plan

AI Chip Prototyping Plan
by Daniel Nenni on 09-10-2019 at 6:00 am

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with a chip designer for an AI start-up to talk about using FPGA prototyping as part of a complex silicon verification strategy. Like countless other chip designers for whom simulation alone simply does not provide sufficient verification coverage, this AI start-up also believed that… Read More

Are the 100 most promising AI start-ups Prototyping?

Are the 100 most promising AI start-ups Prototyping?
by Daniel Nenni on 07-12-2019 at 10:00 am

I came across a report on the 100 most promising AI start-ups. The report claimed that CBInsights had “selected the 100 most promising AI start-ups from a pool of 3K+ companies based on several factors …”  Wait, what … 3K+ companies!?!?  This was a stunning reminder of the sheer magnitude of what is shaping up to be a veritable tsunami… Read More


FPGA Prototyping for AI Product Development

FPGA Prototyping for AI Product Development
by Randy Smith on 06-21-2019 at 8:00 am

I recently wrote about The Implications of the Rise of AI/ML in the Cloud. In that article, I wrote about my expectation that the rapidly growing AI market will lead to the accelerated use of high-level synthesis (HLS), prototyping, and emulation. In this article, I will focus on the prototyping portion of that – specifically FPGA… Read More

Recently, Daniel Nenni blogged on the presentation Wally Rhines gave at #56th DAC. Daniel provided a great summary, but I want to dive into a portion of the presentation in more detail. I love Wally’s presentations, but sometimes you cannot absorb the wealth of information he provides when you initially see it. It’s… Read More


Cadence Releases Enterprise-Level FPGA Prototyping

Cadence Releases Enterprise-Level FPGA Prototyping
by Bernard Murphy on 06-04-2019 at 5:00 am

Big prototyping hardware is essential to modern firmware and software development for pre-silicon, multi-billion gate hardware. For hardware verification it complements emulation, running fast enough for realistic testing on big software loads while still allowing fast-switch to emulation for more detailed debug where… Read More

Anirudh Keynote at CDNLive 2019
by Bernard Murphy on 05-08-2019 at 7:00 am

Anirudh Devgan (President of Cadence), gave the third keynote at CDNLive Silicon Valley this year. He has clearly become adept in this role. He has a big, but supportable vision for Cadence across markets and technologies and he’s become a master of the annual tech reveals that I usually associate with keynotes.

Rapid Prototyping ARM Based Designs Webinar

Rapid Prototyping ARM Based Designs Webinar
by Daniel Nenni on 01-07-2019 at 7:00 am

Image RemovedWhile writing the definitive book on ARM history we could not have imagined a more different exit than the SoftBank acquisition, not even close. It is now very clear why SoftBank acquired ARM for $31B. It is also very clear why alternatives like RISC-V are trending on SemiWiki and will continue to do so, absolutely. … Read More
