Vertical Prototyping with Intel FPGAs

Vertical Prototyping with Intel FPGAs
by Bernard Murphy on 03-26-2018 at 7:00 am

Image RemovedIt has been an article of faith in the design tools business that there’s little to be gained from targeting market verticals because as far as tools are concerned, all verticals have the same needs. Which is good in some respects; you maximize the breadth of the market to which tooling can appeal. But in so doing the depth… Read More


Webinar: Achieve High-performance and High-throughput with Intel based FPGA Prototyping

Webinar: Achieve High-performance and High-throughput with Intel based FPGA Prototyping
by Daniel Nenni on 03-19-2018 at 12:00 pm

FPGAs have been used for ASIC prototyping since the beginning of FPGAs (1980s) allowing hardware and software designers to work in harmony developing, testing, and optimizing their products. We covered the history of FPGAs in Chapter 3 of our book “Fabless: The Transformation of the Semiconductor Industry”, which includes … Read More

Webinar: The Emergence of FPGA Prototyping for ASIC and SoC Design
by Daniel Nenni on 01-26-2018 at 12:00 pm

One of the more interesting markets that I cover is FPGA Prototyping. Interesting because it is fast growing ($150-250M) and interesting because it is all about design starts and design starts are the lifeblood of the semiconductor industry.

If you are interested in FPGA prototyping you might want to start with the… Read More


Enhancing FPGA Prototype Debug

Enhancing FPGA Prototype Debug
by Daniel Nenni on 12-06-2017 at 7:00 am

FPGA prototyping is very popular in modeling hardware for early system prove-out, early embedded software development, as a cost-effective and performance-effective platform for software-driven hardware debug and for late-stage software debug, all before silicon is available. It has significant advantages in run-time… Read More

Free PDF Version of PROTOTYPICAL for SoC Design
by Daniel Nenni on 11-12-2017 at 7:00 am

Image RemovedIn our quest to further enlighten the masses SemiWiki has published four books, we have two more eBooks in post production due out in Q1 2018 and two more topics in research. All of the books are available free for PDF versions or you can get printed versions on Amazon.com or free printed versions at book signings or if … Read More


A Delicate Choice – Emulation versus Prototyping

A Delicate Choice – Emulation versus Prototyping
by Bernard Murphy on 09-07-2017 at 7:00 am

Hardware-assisted verification has been with us (commercially) for around 20 years and at this point is clearly mainstream. But during this evolution it split into at least two forms (emulation and prototyping), robbing us of a simple choice – to hardware-assist or not to hardware-assist (that is the question). Which in turn … Read More


Prototype-Based Debug for Cloud Design

Prototype-Based Debug for Cloud Design
by Bernard Murphy on 03-14-2017 at 7:00 am

Unless you’ve been in hibernation for a while, you probably know that a lot more chip design is happening in system companies these days. This isn’t just for science experiments; many of these designs are already being used in high-value applications. This development is captive – systems companies generally don’t want… Read More


CEO Interview: Toshio Nakama of S2C

CEO Interview: Toshio Nakama of S2C
by Daniel Nenni on 01-16-2017 at 7:00 am

Image RemovedI haven’t sat down to speak with S2C since we collaborated on the book, PROTOTYPICAL, published just before DAC 2016 and even then, I hadn’t spoken to Toshio Nakama, their CEO. Toshio splits his time between the San Jose headquarters and the Shanghai headquarters so getting time to meet face-to-face has been challenging.… Read More
