Chiplets are a popular and trending topic in the semiconductor trade press, and I read about  SoC disaggregation at shows like ISSCC, Hot Chips, DAC and others. Once an SoC is disaggregated, the next challenge is deciding on the die-to-die interconnect approach. The Open Compute Project (OCP) started 10 years ago as a way to share… Read More

cxl standards 1

Although version 2.0 of the Computer Express Link (CXL) standard is just making it into new designs, the next generation, version 3.0, has been approved and is now ready for designers to implement the new silicon and firmware needed to meet the new standard’s performance specifications. CXL, an open industry-standard interconnect,… Read More

Ansys chip package board

Over its 40+ year history, electronic design automation (EDA) has seen many companies rise, fall, and merge. In the beginning, in the 1980s, the industry was dominated by what came to be known as the big three — Daisy Systems, Mentor Graphics, and Valid Logic (the infamous “DMV”). The Big 3 has morphed over the years, eventually settling… Read More

Verification technologies have progressed in almost all domains over the years. We’re now substantially more productive in creating tests for block, SoC and hybrid software/hardware verification. These tests provide better coverage through randomization and formal modeling. And verification engines are faster – substantially… Read More

5G provides a range of improvements compared to existing 4G LTE mobile networks in regards to capacity, speed, latency and security. One of the main improvements is in the 5G RAN; it is based on a virtualized architecture where functions can be centralized close to the 5G core for economy or distributed as close to the edge as possible… Read More

Advanced EM simulations yield both conducted and radiated EMI in automotive power integrity analysis

A vital benefit of advanced EM simulations is their ability to take on complicated physical test setups, substituting far easier virtual tests yielding accurate results earlier during design activities. The latest release of Keysight PathWave ADS 2023 continues speeding up engineering workflows. Let’s look at three… Read More

Intellectual abilities of artificial intelligence AI

To understand AI’s capabilities and abilities we need to recognize the different components and subsets of AI. Terms like Neural Networks, Machine Learning (ML), and Deep Learning, need to be define and explained.

In general, Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed… Read More
