In the emerging era of large scale SoCs comprised from complex IP, typically designed for AI and automotive applications, designers must embrace an innovative approach to overcome numerous safety and reliability challenges. Therefore, the solution must be scalable, robust and Functional Safety (FuSa) aware, in addition … Read More
If you are designing high-performance computing and networking SoCs for hyperscale data centers, then you require IP that enables large amounts of data to travel at very fast rates.
Whether the IP is for true long reach or very short-reach die-to-die connectivity in multi-chip modules (MCMs), you must consider several essential… Read More
Identifying glitches and revealing the extra power they consume require special attention to cell delays and wire delays. To enable earlier and more frequent analysis, physical-and-timing-aware glitch power analysis is needed throughout the flow from RTL to Signoff. In this webinar, we review the glitch power challenges … Read More
Design Technology Co-Optimization (DTCO) analysis was pursued for library cell PPA estimates for gate-all-around (GAA) devices and new metallurgy options. The cell design and process recommendations are a bit surprising.
During the “golden years” of silicon technology evolution that applied Dennard… Read More
Security concerns permeate our digital lives. From online financial or personal data transactions, to automobile control and even election tampering, protecting access has become a critical necessity for almost all applications. With semiconductor hardware forming the foundation of modern electronic systems, a hack here… Read More
I had the opportunity to preview an upcoming webinar from Synopsys on SoC Glitch Power – what it is and how to reduce it. There is some eye-opening information in this webinar. Glitch power is a bigger problem than you may think and Synopsys has some excellent strategies to help reduce the problem. The webinar is available via replay… Read More
If you are like me, you will get a 5G phone because of the high bandwidth it offers. However, there is a lot more to 5G than just fast data. In fact, one of the appealing features of 5G is low bandwidth communication. This is useful for edge devices that perform infrequent and low volume data transfers and depend on long battery life. Prior… Read More
