A recent SemiWiki post covered the topic of protecting high-speed interfaces in data centers using security IP. That post was based on a presentation made by Dana Neustadter at IP-Soc Silicon Valley 2022 conference. Dana’s talk was an overview of various interfaces and Synopsys’ security IP for protecting those interfaces. … Read More

According to the experts, the semiconductor industry is poised for a decade of growth and is projected to become a trillion dollar industry by 2030. In 2021 the semiconductor industry finally hit $600B so $1T by 2030 seems like a big ask, but not really if you look at the indicators inside the semiconductor ecosystem. Foundries, … Read More

It was nice to be at a live conference again. DesignCon was held at the Santa Clara Convention Center, my favorite location, which to me there was a back to normal crowd. The sessions I attended were full and the show floor was busy. Masks and vaccinations were not required, maybe that was it. Or there was a pent-up demand to get back engaged… Read More


Upcoming Webinar: 3DIC Design from Concept to Silicon

Upcoming Webinar: 3DIC Design from Concept to Silicon

Lessons from Existing Multi Die Solutions

Multi-die design is not a new concept. It has been around for a long time and has evolved from 2D level integration on to 2.5D and then to full 3D level implementations. Multiple driving forces have led to this progression.  Whether the forces are driven by market needs, product needs, manufacturing technology availability or EDA… Read More

Hello! The most important semiconductor company in the world reported earnings last night. It’s been something of a tradition to post Taiwan Semiconductor Company (TSMC) earnings posts not behind my paywall, and I think that I’m going to continue that to kickoff each earnings season.

There are so many threads in the TSMC call that… Read More

The Backstory of PCIe 6.0 for HPC From IP to Interconnect

PCIe, or peripheral component interconnect express, is a very popular high-speed serial computer expansion bus standard. The width and speed the standard supports essentially defines the throughput for high-performance computing (HPC) applications.  The newest version, PCIe 6.0 promises to double the bandwidth that the… Read More

In a discussion with Tom Fitzpatrick of Siemens EDA he recalled that their Verification Horizons newsletter started 17 years ago, back when they were Mentor. We’ve known about the Siemens acquisition for a while. The deal closed in March 2017, but it wasn’t until January 1, 2021 that the legal entity merger was complete. Which makes… Read More
