Key Requirements for Effective SoC Verification Management

Key Requirements for Effective SoC Verification Management

The Four Phases of SoC Verification

Effective and efficient functional verification is one of the biggest hurdles for today’s large and complex system-on-chip (SoC) designs. The goal is to verify as close as possible to 100% of the design’s specified functionality before committing to the long and expensive tape-out process for application-specific integrated… Read More

Synopsys is Enabling the Cloud Computing Revolution

In 2019 I was involved in a major project to move all our engineering and financial systems to the cloud. We succeeded in this endeavor, but it wasn’t easy. We faced a lot of infrastructure challenges during our journey. The freedom from facility management and capital budgeting offered by the cloud was significant, however. If … Read More

Figure 1 for Synopsys Blog

I recently watched a webinar titled “How to accelerate power-aware simulation debug with Synopsys’ VC LP” that was presented by Ashwani Kumar Dwivedi senior applications engineer at Synopsys. Watching the webinar made me reminisce how design verification has evolved over the years. A long time ago, static verification started… Read More

Cloud AI Accelerator SoC

Let’s face it, AI is everywhere. From the cloud to the edge to your pocket, there is more and more embedded intelligence fueling efficiency and features. It’s sometimes hard to discern where human interaction ends, and machine interaction begins. The technology that underlies all this is quite complex and daunting to understand.… Read More

A New ML Application

Machine learning (ML) is a once-in-a-generation innovation that seems like it should be applicable almost everywhere. It’s certainly revolutionized automotive safety, radiology and many other domains. In our neck of the woods, SoC implementation is advancing through learning to reduce total negative slacks and better optimize… Read More

safety min

By now we’re pretty familiar with the requirements ISO 26262 places on development for automotive safety. The process, procedures and metrics you will apply to meet various automotive safety integrity levels (ASIL). You need to train organizations. In fact you should establish a safety culture across the whole company or line… Read More


What Might the “1nm Node” Look Like?

What Might the “1nm Node” Look Like?
by Tom Dillinger on 12-28-2020 at 6:00 am

transistor density

The device roadmap for the next few advanced process nodes seems relatively clear.  The FinFET topology will subsequently be displaced by a “gate-all-around” device, typically using multiple stacked channels with a metal gate completely surrounding the “nanosheets”.  Whereas the fin demonstrates improved gate-to-channel… Read More

The Heart of Trust in the Cloud

You might think that cloud services run on never-ending racks of servers and switches in giant datacenters. But what they really run on is trust. Trust that your data (or your client’s data) is absolutely tamper-proof inside that datacenter. Significantly more secure than it would be if you tried to manage the same operations in… Read More

CXLs busy timeline

Compute Express Link (CXL), a new open interconnect standard, targets intensive workloads for CPUs and purpose-built accelerators where efficient, coherent memory access between a host and device is required. A consortium to enable this new standard is in place, and a lot of heavy hitters are behind the standard, including … Read More

by Daniel Nenni on 11-23-2020 at 6:00 am

GAA FinFET

With the announcement of early PDK availability for the 3nm GAA process node, designers are extremely interested in the characteristics of the new “gate-all-around” transistor structure and how it compares to the existing FinFET device.  The GAA transistor has been denoted as a (horizontal) nanowire or nanosheet.

I will talk… Read More
