In the complex world of silicon design, ensuring the accuracy and reliability of our designs is paramount. As our chips become more sophisticated, the process of bug hunting—identifying and rectifying errors in our designs—becomes even more critical. Generative AI has the potential to revolutionize the silicon design industry… Read More
SoC designs frequently have lots of different clock domains to help manage power more efficiently, however one side effect is that when the clock domains meet, i.e., in a Clock Domain Crossing (CDC), there’s the possibility of setup and hold time violations that can cause a flip-flop to become metastable. Synchronizer … Read More
The release and scattering of photoelectrons and secondary electrons in EUV resists has often been glossed over in most studies in EUV lithography, despite being a fundamental factor in the image formation. Fortunately, Intel has provided us with a laboriously simulated electron release and scattering model, using the GEANT4… Read More
The surge in Edge AI applications has propelled the need for architectures that balance performance, power efficiency, and flexibility. Architectural choices play a pivotal role in determining the success of AI processing at the edge, with trade-offs often necessary to meet the unique demands of diverse workloads. There are… Read More
As integration levels increase, clock frequencies rise, and feature sizes shrink it is not surprising that all or most aspects of semiconductor design become more complex and demand more from design technologies. One example where the traditional approach is breaking down is in optimizing power distribution networks (PDNs)… Read More
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is dominating the news cycle these days. It used to be about the latest (and largest) chips to accelerate AI algorithms. While that’s still relevant and exciting, AI news is taking a much broader, socioeconomic character. What does AI mean for job security, the economy, or even life on Earth? These … Read More
In the closing scene of Steven Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), the camera pulls back to reveal an enormous warehouse stacked with crates of artifacts hidden away by the US government.
One could imagine a similar warehouse in China today. The crates would hold a different kind of treasure – semiconductor production … Read More
