Methodics Security SoC

Three years ago my youngest son purchased a $17 smart watch on eBay, but then my oldest son read an article warning about how that watch would sync with your phone, then send all of your contact info to an address in China. My youngest son then wisely turned the watch off, and never used it again. Hackers have been able to spoof and hide Read More

Webinar: From HLS Component to a Working Design

Webinar: From HLS Component to a Working Design
by Daniel Payne on 10-15-2019 at 10:00 am

Mentor - A Siemens Business

Overview

Complex algorithms do not exist in a vacuum. After HLS is used to create an RTL component, to be useful, it needs to be integrated into a larger system. This means connecting it to other components, a processor, and even software. Once integrated, the system needs to be verified. The verification of the complete environment… Read More

FPGAs have always been a great way to add performance to a system. They are capable of parallel processing and have the added bonus of reprogramability. Achronix has helped boost their utility by offering on-chip embedded FPGA fabric for integration into SoCs. This has had the effect of boosting data rates through these systems… Read More


Webinar: Implementing Machine Learning Hardware Using High-Level Synthesis

Webinar: Implementing Machine Learning Hardware Using High-Level Synthesis
by Daniel Payne on 10-08-2019 at 10:00 am

Mentor - A Siemens Business

Overview

Neural networks are typically developed and trained in a high-performance 32-bit floating-point compute environment. But, in many cases a custom hardware solution is needed for the inference engine to meet power and real-time requirements. Each neural network and end-application may have different performance… Read More


Debugging SoCs at the RTL, Gate and SPICE Netlist Levels

Debugging SoCs at the RTL, Gate and SPICE Netlist Levels
by Daniel Payne on 10-02-2019 at 10:00 am

Concept Engineering - auto schematic

Debugging an IC is never much fun because of all the file formats used, the levels of hierarchy and just the sheer design size, so when an EDA tool comes around that allows me to get my debugging done quicker, then I take notice and give it a look. I was already familiar with debugging SPICE netlists using a tool called SPICEVision Pro,… Read More
