Response to IP’s Growing Impact On Yield And Reliability

Response to IP’s Growing Impact On Yield And Reliability
by Daniel Nenni on 10-14-2019 at 6:00 am

One of the reasons I founded SemiWiki nine years ago was the lack of EDA, IP and Foundry content in the media. The problem is that unless you work in the industry it is very difficult to write about it in competent technical detail. Most media outlets only know what vendors tell them which is how the semiconductor industry worked before… Read More

A directed approach to reduce Risk and improve Quality

Safety and reliability are critical for most applications of integrated circuits (ICs) today. Even more so when they serve markets like ADAS, autonomous driving, healthcare and aeronautics where they are paramount. Safety and reliability transcend all levels of an integrated… Read More

WEBINAR: How ASIC/SoC Rapid Prototyping Solutions Can Help You!
by Daniel Nenni on 09-17-2019 at 10:00 am

Today’s off-the-shelf FPGA based prototyping systems have established their value in every stage of the application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) and system-on-chip (SoC) design flow. Moving beyond traditional applications such as in-circuit testing and early software development, this technology has expanded … Read More

With the ever increasing size of today’s SoC’s, engineering workspaces are growing exponentially. Designers spend hours waiting for workspaces to populate and verification environments to build. Methodic’s WarpStor virtualizes engineering data, allowing for near instantaneous access to all information needed to build… Read More

WEBINAR: Lightspeed Data Sync – Design Workspace Problems Solved!
by Daniel Nenni on 09-02-2019 at 10:00 am

Image RemovedWith every process node and every SOC design, engineering and IT teams are experiencing an unprecedented data explosion. User workspaces routinely exceed 10’s of GB and sometimes even 100’s of GB. Regression runs, characterization runs, design and debug of workspaces, building verification environments –… Read More

Speeding up Circuit Simulation using a GPU Approach

Speeding up Circuit Simulation using a GPU Approach
by Daniel Payne on 08-22-2019 at 10:00 am

The old adage that “Time is Money” certainly rings true in the semiconductor world where IC designers are being challenged with getting their new designs to market quickly, and correctly in the first spin of silicon. Circuit designers work at the transistor-level, and circuit simulation is one of the most time-consuming… Read More


Ten Things to see @ 56thDAC!

Ten Things to see @ 56thDAC!
by Daniel Nenni on 06-01-2019 at 8:00 am

New products always take precedence since EDA is a “mature” market. I have inside knowledge on this one so I can tell you it is not to be missed. Coincidently, but not really, a related white paper was just published so if you are not going to 56thDAC you can still get a virtual briefing. If you are going to DAC be sure and stop by the Fractal… Read More

As the number one 56thDAC supporting portal we will publish what’s happening in the conference, on the exhibit floor, and outside activities. The SemiWiki bloggers will be out in full force with live coverage and behind the scenes looks. Remember, SemiWiki bloggers are actual semiconductor professionals with hundreds… Read More


eSilicon ASICs all in the Google Cloud

eSilicon ASICs all in the Google Cloud
by Daniel Nenni on 05-08-2019 at 12:00 pm

Image RemovedHaving just completed a cloud evaluation for SemiWiki I can tell you why eSilicon chose Google. Simply put, they are working harder to get cloud business. Google ($4B) is the number five cloud provider behind Microsoft ($21.2B), Amazon ($20.4B), IBM ($10.3B) and Oracle ($6.08B). There is a lot of money in the cloud… Read More
