Architectural exploration is a vast area of engineering design. It starts with the planning phase where the designer will have the list of requirements from the customer and the rough architecture most likely on a paper. Next is to assemble the model and conduct variety of trade-offs for optimization and functional studies to … Read More

Silvaco Talks Atoms to Systems – Where to Next?
by Randy Smith on 07-17-2019 at 10:00 am

At the ES Design West event in San Francisco last week Silvaco’s CTO and EVP of Products, Babak Taheri, gave a presentation titled, “Next Generation SoC Design: From Atoms to Systems”. The time slot for the talk was only 30-minutes which is simply not enough to discuss all the technology Silvaco is providing now. I had not looked closely… 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

Meeting the Challenges of National Defense Strategy
by Alex Tan on 03-30-2018 at 7:00 am

In February this year, the Department of Defense (DoD) submitted a $686.1 billions budget for 2019 and published a National Defense Strategy outlining the overall spending for defense and military programs. The recently signed US $1.3 trillion spending bill included part of the funding. According to DoD Defense Budget Overview… Read More


A Delicate Choice – Emulation versus Prototyping

A Delicate Choice – Emulation versus Prototyping
by Bernard Murphy on 09-07-2017 at 7:00 am

Hardware-assisted verification has been with us (commercially) for around 20 years and at this point is clearly mainstream. But during this evolution it split into at least two forms (emulation and prototyping), robbing us of a simple choice – to hardware-assist or not to hardware-assist (that is the question). Which in turn … Read More


CEO Interview: Jim Gobes of Intrinsix

CEO Interview: Jim Gobes of Intrinsix
by Daniel Nenni on 08-14-2017 at 7:00 am

Experience gives us the ability to make better decisions and in a fast moving industry like semiconductors, experience is critical. As chips get more integrated and complex the number of design decisions that must be made increases at a dramatic rate. Process technologies for example, never in the history of semiconductors have… Read More
