Automotive Market Pushing Test Tool Capabilities

Automotive Market Pushing Test Tool Capabilities
by Tom Simon on 07-09-2019 at 8:00 am

It’s easy to imagine that the main impetus for automotive electronics safety standards like ISO 26262 is the emergence of autonomous driving technology. However, even cars that do not offer this capability rely heavily on electronics for many critical systems. These include engine control, braking, crash sensors, and stability… Read More


An Important Next Step for Portable Stimulus Adoption

An Important Next Step for Portable Stimulus Adoption
by Daniel Nenni on 07-02-2019 at 5:00 am

Portable stimulus has been a hot topic for a couple of years in the EDA and semiconductor industries. Many observers see this approach as the next major advance in verification beyond the Universal Verification Methodology (UVM), and the next step higher in abstraction for specifying verification intent. The basic idea is to … Read More

Recently, Daniel Nenni blogged on the presentation Wally Rhines gave at #56th DAC. Daniel provided a great summary, but I want to dive into a portion of the presentation in more detail. I love Wally’s presentations, but sometimes you cannot absorb the wealth of information he provides when you initially see it. It’s… Read More


Siemens Shows SOC Simulation Solution for Self-Driving Vehicles

Siemens Shows SOC Simulation Solution for Self-Driving Vehicles
by Tom Simon on 05-30-2019 at 11:00 am

Ever since the early days of computing there has always been a large distinction between ‘regular’ computing and real time computing – where special care had to be made to deal with unordered and asynchronous events. Back then a system typically consisted of a handful of sensors and perhaps some electromechanical devices.… Read More


Deep Learning, Reshaping the Industry or Holding to the Status Quo

Deep Learning, Reshaping the Industry or Holding to the Status Quo
by Daniel Payne on 04-25-2019 at 12:00 pm

AI, Machine Learning, Deep Learning and neural networks are all hot industry topics in 2019, but you probably want to know if these concepts are changing how we actually design or verify an SoC. To answer that question what better place to get an answer than from a panel of industry experts who recently gathered at DVcon with moderator… Read More


A Collaborative Driven Solution

A Collaborative Driven Solution

Last week TSMC announced the availability of its complete 5nm design infrastructure that enables SoC designers to implement advanced mobile and high-performance computing applications for the emerging 5G and AI driven markets. This fifth generation 3D FinFET design infrastructure includes technology files, PDKs (Process… Read More


Functional Verification using Formal on Million Gate Designs

Functional Verification using Formal on Million Gate Designs
by Daniel Payne on 04-10-2019 at 12:00 pm

Verification engineers are the unsung heroes making sure that our smart phone chips, smart watches and even smart cars function logically, without bugs or unintended behavior. Hidden bugs are important to uncover, but what approach is best suited for this challenge?

With the Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) there’s… Read More


Hierarchical RTL Based ATPG for an ARM A75 Based SOC

Hierarchical RTL Based ATPG for an ARM A75 Based SOC
by Tom Simon on 03-27-2019 at 5:00 am

Two central concepts have led to the growth of our ability to manage and implement larger and larger designs: hierarchy and higher levels of abstraction. Without these two approaches the enormous designs we are seeing in SOCs would not be possible. Hierarchy in particular allows the reuse of component blocks, such as CPU cores.… Read More


Mentor Automating Design Compliance with Power-Aware Simulation HyperLynx and Xpedition Flow

Mentor Automating Design Compliance with Power-Aware Simulation HyperLynx and Xpedition Flow
by Camille Kokozaki on 02-25-2019 at 12:00 pm

High-speed design requires addressing signal integrity (SI) and power integrity (PI) challenges. Power integrity has a frequency component. The Power Distribution Network (PDN) in designs has 2 different purposes: providing power to the chip, and acting as a power plane reference for transmission-line like propagating … Read More
