Before chiplets arrived, it seemed like designing an electronic system was a bit simpler, as a system on chip (SoC) methodology was well understood, and each SoC was mounted inside a package, then the packages for each component were interconnected on a printed circuit board (PCB). The emerging trend to design a 3D IC using chiplets… Read More
Aerospace belongs to explorers. We have been instrumental in pioneering innovative and complex technologies — and now, new methods fuse with old for entirely new processes that take us further than ever into the beyond.
In four 30-minute sessions, you will learn everything you need to know to begin implementing optimization… Read More
The buzzwords of 2022 are autonomous driving, radars, and semiconductor and they are all similar in more than one-way.
- All have protocols, schedulers, sensors, high performance computing, software, networks, interfaces, antennas, and attenuators.
- VisualSim Architect is used to architect and verify all these applications.
Building a better mousetrap plays a key role in achieving market success in any industry. Of course, building one requires differentiating the product from the others already in the market. A differentiated product can even lead to creating demand for new products in adjacent markets. All of this is great but how do you implement… Read More

In recent years, materials have emerged as a focus of architectural pedagogy. Beyond teaching students to think of materials in architecture as part of the design process, the ambition here is bolder: To design architecture means to design materials. Conversely, materials in architecture
Discussion on machine learning (ML) and hardware design has been picking up significantly in two fascinating areas: how ML can advance hardware design methods and how hardware design methods can advance building ML systems. Here I’ll talk about the latter, particularly about architecting ML-enabled SoCs. This approach is … Read More
Two recently announced vulnerabilities in major processor platforms should remind us that bugs don’t organize themselves to appear only in domains we know how to test comprehensively. Both Meltdown and Spectre (the announced problems) are potential hardware system-level issues allowed by interactions between speculative… Read More
For any given design objective, there is what we in the design automation biz preach that design teams should do, and then there’s what designs teams actually do. For some domains, the gap between these two may be larger than others, but we more or less assume that methodologies which have been around for years and are considered to… Read More
The electronics market for automotive applications is distinguished by multiple factors. This is a very fast growing market – electronics now account for 40% of a car’s cost, up from 20% just 10 years ago. New technologies are gaining acceptance, for greener and safer operation and for a more satisfying consumer experience. Platforms… Read More
