In my writing studio recently, a grad student spoke about finding motivation to return from coding to writing his dissertation. My colleague opined that he while he certainly could write for long stretches, (as it turns out, he write beautifully), that before long, the time to code would come again. He’d drop...
China is catching up to the developed countries of the world by leaps and bounds. Qualcomm tried to beat them and was beaten down itself by the Chinese government. Intel decided to join them, but risks loosing its intellect property (IP) to Chinese companies with impunity from their government. China's 5-Year Plan is working...
Two approaches to greater reliability revealed in Synopsys ATPG and DesignWare updates...
In this blog, I’ll look at a key feature of the JESD204B standard that defines a method to achieve deterministic latency for each link and subsequently multi-device synchronization. Some applications, such as synchronous sampling, multi-channel phase arrays and gain control loops, are sensitive to latency,...
The health benefits in our future might just rest on how hale, hardy (and cost-effective) developers, including start-ups, can make their implantable medical device proof-of-concepts—and that warrants a close look at ASSP chips for help with size, power and development time hurdles.
Embedded designers can follow a roadmap to alleviate graphics challenges when developing for mobile medical, smartphones/tablets, gaming, HDTV and more. With today’s mobile devices
Sensor networks for consumer and industrial applications can benefit from low-power RF technologies combined with hardware encryption for safeguarding data.
These days, you’d need to be buried under a pile of verification reports not to know that hardware emulation has gone mainstream, moving away from a dusty back room to your cubemate’s
We all know that it’s only a matter of time until our cars are able to communicate with each other. Another wave of connectivity-focused innovation is underway and, this time around,
With anticipated economic limits to the continuation of Moore’s Law now on the horizon, it seems that moving into the 3rd dimension (3D) by stacking multiple layers of integrated
Introduction IEEE 1149.1-2013 is not your father's JTAG. The new release in June of 2013 represents a major leap forward in standardizing how FPGAs, SoCs and 3D-SICs can be debugged
Traditional black box methodologies give way to a novel grey-cell approach for intellectual property (IP) and FPGA clock domain crossing (CDC) analysis. As design complexity escalates,
An on-chip network offers a set of services that allow chip designers and architects to optimize the design to meet the real world requirements of today’s devices, including those
There are many challenges when designing ICs that contain tens to hundreds of millions of gates and it won't get any easier as next-generation designs cross the gigagate threshold.
