Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon is mostly a small battery powered radio transmitter that sends Bluetooth advertising packets containing information like URL (Universal Resource Locator), UUID (Universal Unique Identifier), battery voltage, temperature, transmit power at regular intervals to the mobile or fixed devices.… Read More
Design verification (DV) is still one of the biggest challenges in the ASIC based product world. In last two decades, we have seen many changes in terms of HVLs and methodologies used for design verification. System Verilog is the most popular HVL these days and UVM is the most popular verification methodology.
Even after such an… Read More
Equalizers were initially designed and developed for movie theaters and amphitheaters or outdoor areas but now they have become ubiquitous. Equalization is essential for creating professional sound and creating real life like sound effects. Equalizers are used for controlling the energy/loudness of a particular frequency… Read More
The semiconductor industry growth is increasing exponentially with high speed circuits, low power design requirements because of updated and new technology like IOT, Networking chips, AI, Robotics etc.
In lower technology nodes the timing closure becomes a major challenge due to the increase in on-chip variation effect and… Read More
Wandering around DAC this week, I found much of the discussion focused on the EDA community being at an inflection point. How do we get more design starts from new places with new ideas without jeopardizing existing business? It’s not as simple a transition as it sounds.… Read More
