Optimizing high performance packages calls for multidisciplinary 3D modeling

Optimizing high performance packages calls for multidisciplinary 3D modeling
by Tom Simon on 10-16-2019 at 10:00 am

For all the time we spend thinking and talking about silicon design, it’s easy to forget just how important package design is. Semiconductor packages have evolved over the years from very basic containers for ICs into very specialized and highly engineered elements of finished electronic systems. They play an important role … Read More


Delivering Innovation for Regulated Markets

Delivering Innovation for Regulated Markets
by Daniel Nenni on 02-25-2019 at 7:00 am

When delivering devices to markets that require heavily audited compliance it is necessary to document and demonstrate development processes that follow the various standard(s) such as IEC65108, IATF16949, ISO26262.

For complex multi-disciplinary designs this can be difficult as they are often developed by multiple teams… Read More


IP Traffic Control

IP Traffic Control
by Bernard Murphy on 04-14-2017 at 7:00 am

From an engineering point of view, IP is all about functionality, PPA, fitness for use and track record. From a business/management point of view there are other factors, just as critical, that relate less to what the IP is and more to its correct management and business obligations. The problems have different flavors depending… Read More


Behind the 3DEXPERIENCE for silicon

Behind the 3DEXPERIENCE for silicon
by Don Dingee on 10-31-2016 at 4:00 pm

We’ve been covering the Dassault Systèmes “Silicon Thinking” platform for a while here, but, as I’m often prone to do, I wanted to explore the backstory to uncover more about the concept. With over 25M users of their product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, why is Dassault Systèmes becoming so interested in semiconductor… Read More


Semiconductor Strategy – From Productivity to Profitability

Semiconductor Strategy – From Productivity to Profitability
by Pawan Fangaria on 03-08-2014 at 8:30 am

The semiconductor industry seems to be the most challenged in terms of cost of error; a delay of 3 months in product development cycle can reduce revenue by about 27% and that of 6 months can reduce it by almost half; competition is rife, pushing the products to next generation (with more functionality, low power, high performance,… Read More
