Identity and Data Encryption for PCIe and CXL Security

Identity and Data Encryption for PCIe and CXL Security
by Tom Simon on 01-07-2022 at 6:00 am

Security for Cloud Applications

Privacy and security have always been a concern when it comes to computing. In prior decades for most people this meant protecting passwords and locking your computer. However, today more and more users are storing sensitive data in the cloud, where it needs to be protected at rest and while in motion. In a Synopsys webinar Dana Neustadter,… Read More


Heterogeneous Integration – A Cost Analysis

Heterogeneous Integration – A Cost Analysis
by Tom Dillinger on 12-29-2021 at 10:00 am

cost comparison

Heterogeneous integration (HI) is a general term used to represent the diverse possibilities for die technology incorporated into advanced 2.5D/3D packaging.  At the recent International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) in San Francisco, a team from Synopsys and IC Knowledge presented data from analyses of future potential… Read More

Evolving Landscape

With the slowing down of Moore’s law , the industry as a whole has been working on various ways to maintain the rate of growth and advancements. A lot has been written up about various solutions being pursued to address specific aspects. The current era is being referred to by different names, SysMoore being one that Synopsys uses.… Read More


Creative Applications of Formal at Intel

Creative Applications of Formal at Intel
by Bernard Murphy on 12-01-2021 at 6:00 am

formal image min

One of the sessions I enjoyed at the Synopsys Verification Day 2021 was a presentation on applying formal to a couple of non-traditional problem domains. I like talks of this kind because formal can sometimes be boxed into a limited set of applications, under-exploiting the potential of the technology. Intel have built a centralized… Read More

Demonstrator Block Diagram

Current technology news is filled with talk of many edge applications moving processing from the cloud to the edge. One of the presentations at the recently concluded Linley Group Fall Processor Conference was about AI moving from the cloud to the edge. Rightly so, there were several sessions dedicated to discussing AI and edge… Read More

SLM, Synopsys

I spoke with Steve Pateras of Synopsys last week to better understand what was happening with their Silicon Lifecycle Management vision, and I was reminded of a Forbes article from last year: Never Heard of Silicon Lifecycle Management? Join the Club. At least two major EDA vendors are now using the relatively new acronym SLM, and… Read More


CDC for MBIST: Who Knew?

CDC for MBIST: Who Knew?
by Bernard Murphy on 11-09-2021 at 6:00 am

CDC for MBIST

Now and again, I enjoy circling back to a topic on which I spent a good deal of time back in my Atrenta days – clock domain crossing analysis (CDC). This is an area that still has opportunity to surprise me at least, in this case looking at CDC analysis around MBIST logic. CDC for MBIST might seem strange. Isn’t everything in test mode synchronous… Read More

Slide AMS Lecture Series Snapshot

A recent educational virtual event with the above title was jointly sponsored by Synopsys and Global Foundries. The objective was to bring awareness to state-of-the-art mixed-signal design practices for automotive circuits. The 2-day event comprised of lectures delivered by engineering professors and doctoral students… Read More


AI and ML for Sanity Regressions

AI and ML for Sanity Regressions

machine learning for regressions min

You probably know the value proposition for using AI and ML (machine learning) in simulation regressions. There are lots of knobs you can tweak on a simulator, all there to help you squeeze more seconds, or minutes out of a run. If you know how to use those options. But often it’s easier to talk to your friendly AE, get a reasonable default… Read More

Synopsys Verification Day 2021 View Ondemand min

I have attended several past Synopsys verification events which I remember as engineering conference room, all-engineer pitches and debates. Effective but aiming for content rather than polish. This year’s event was different. First it was virtual, like most events these days, which certainly made the whole event feel more… Read More
