I’ve written before about Pulsic’s Animate Preview software, which is extremely helpful in completing placement in analog blocks so that they are ready for routing. Analog design automation has always been a tough proposition, but Animate Preview looks like a promising tool, with practical benefits. Obtaining DRC clean placement… Read More

About this Webinar
In today’s near threshold designs, trends like tighter integration and increasing layout density on advanced nodes, frequency escalation (5G) and complex packaging scenarios are making the need for accurate and efficient electromagnetic… Read More
In today’s System-on-Chip (SOC), analog blocks are used in many places such as I/O cells for communication, PLLs for generating clocks, LDO’s for converting supply voltage to internal rail voltage, Sensors for qualifying external characteristics such as temperature, light, motion, etc. However new advanced designs now require… Read More
When we think about Compute and AI SoCs, we often focus on the huge numbers of calculations being carried out every second, and the ingenious IPs that are able to reach such high levels of performance. However, there also exists a significant challenge in keeping the vast quantities of data flowing around the chip which is solved … Read More
In many aspects of our lives, increasingly intelligent subsystems will do the thinking for us. 5G networks will self-tune to maximize their data throughput. Automation, with the help of AI, robotics, and the internet of things, is playing an increasing role in manufacturing. Vehicles are becoming ever more intelligent and autonomous.
Typical applications for SPICE simulators include analog, small and middle size digital and memory blocks, whereas FastSPICE simulators targets larger blocks or full chip simulations including memory circuits, SoCs. SPICE is very accurate but cannot handle large designs and simulation time can be extensive. While FastSPICE… Read More
Synopsys virtual events are high on my list for three reasons:
- They are very well organized and professionally done
Since the start of PROMS, PLDs and FPGAs we have learned the importance of programmability in modern semiconductor design. Today we have eFPGAs for “design adaptive” embedded programmability and that is what this webinar is all about.
Several key points are discussed starting with the Law of Accelerating Returns as it applies… Read More
Talk to the members of a digital design team and you will always find two types of users. One who likes using the GUI while working on his design and the other who is passionate about using scripts and the command line options. This is akin to the two camps of users who either love either good old Vi/Vim or the ever versatile Emacs editor.… Read More
