Recipes for Low Power Verification

Recipes for Low Power Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 03-20-2017 at 7:00 am

Synopsys hosted a tutorial on verification for low power design at DVCon this year, including speakers from Samsung, Broadcom, Intel and Synopsys. Verification for low power is a complex and many-faceted topic so this was a very useful update. There is a vast abundance of information in the slides which I can’t hope to summarize… Read More

Do not lose sleep worrying that your integrated circuits might fail during EOS/ESD events. Join us for the 38th annual EOS/ESD Symposium in Anaheim, CA in September. Experts on the field will address the latest research on EOS and ESD in the rapidly changing world of electronics.

As electronics continue to become commonplace in… Read More


Designing an IDCT for H.265 using High Level Synthesis

Designing an IDCT for H.265 using High Level Synthesis
by Daniel Payne on 07-27-2015 at 8:00 pm

Math geeks know all about Inverse Discrete Cosine Transforms (IDCT) and a popular use is in the hardware architecture of High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), also known as H.265, the new video compression standard and widely used in consumer and industrial video devices. You could go about hand-coding RTL to create an IDCT function,… Read More

Consumer electronics is a new driver in our global semiconductor economy as we enjoy using Smart Phones, Tablets and Ultra Books. The challenge of designing and then verifying the electronic systems to meet the market windows is a daunting one. Instead of starting with a blank sheet for a new product, most electronic design companies… Read More
