Thermal Modeling for ADAS goes MultiPhysics

Thermal Modeling for ADAS goes MultiPhysics
by Bernard Murphy on 01-18-2018 at 7:00 am

In electronic system design, we have grown comfortable with the idea that different regimes of analysis, such as the chip, the package and the system, or electrical, thermal and stress are more or less independent – what starts in one regime stays in that regime, give or take some margin information passed onto other regimes. And… Read More


Will your next SoC fail because of power noise integrity in IP blocks?

Will your next SoC fail because of power noise integrity in IP blocks?
by Daniel Payne on 04-14-2015 at 5:00 pm

By the time that your SoC comes back from the fab and you plugin it into a socket on a board for testing, it’s a little late in the cycle to start thinking about reliability concerns like: dynamic voltage drop, noise coupling, EM (Electro-Migration), self-heating, thermal analysis and ESD (Electro-Static Discharge). They… Read More


Power and Thermal Analysis of Data Center and Server ICs

Power and Thermal Analysis of Data Center and Server ICs
by Daniel Payne on 08-31-2014 at 4:00 pm

The server market is a diverse, yet standardized market. The ICs and components designed and manufactured in final assemblies must meet form factor requirements for rack mount and blades. The form factor enclosures and the component placement dictate the thermal-mechanical properties and hence the thermal cooling limits … Read More
