This paper introduces an acceleration-ready UVM framework and explains why it is needed, how to create it, and what its benefits are. By following the principles presented here, users will be able to write block-level UVM environments that can be reused directly in emulation. This approach has provided remarkable results in various customer environments, yielding a 50 to 5000X performance gain over pure simulation and significantly reducing testbench development time for emulation.
When debugging software on an emulator with a probe, something is always waiting. When the software developer is looking at memory, variables, and source code the emulator is occupied. With Codelink, most the waiting is eliminated as the developer interacts with a virtual target which is run on the same host as the debugger, eliminating the delays you get with a probe debugger. Because the virtual target is processing much less data than the original emulation, it can run faster â more than 10 times faster. This means 10 times less waiting for the developer.

Performance of multicore SoCs is often dominated by external DRAM access, particularly in digital consumer devices running high quality video and graphics applications. Increasing core counts and newer DRAMs make the problems much more difficult. This article covers optimization of the on-chip network and memory system to achieve the required system throughput.
The research group led by Professor Peter Kinget at the Columbia University Integrated Systems Laboratory (CISL) focuses on cutting edge analog and RF circuit design using digital nanoscale CMOS processes. Key challenges in the design of these circuits include block-level characterization and full-circuit verification. This paper highlights these verification challenges by discussing the results of a 2.2 GHz PLL LC-VCO, a 12-bit pipeline ADC, and an ultra-wideband transceiver.
This paper describes a new circuit validation and characterization flow that enables users to easily set up, run, record pass/fail, and analyze very complex tests. The validation and characterization flow was standardized across the design team, leveraging knowledge and computing resources and significantly improving design productivity.
This paper describes how AFS Transient Noise analysis enables circuit designers to efficiently perform SPICE-accurate device noise analysis on complex non-periodic analog/RF blocks. This capability enables designers to measure and optimize device noise analysis on complex blocks such as ADCs, frac-N PLLs, and int-N PLLs which would not otherwise have been possible without silicon iterations.
Tough reliability standards for electronic automotive safety systems ensure that integrated circuits (ICs) comply with demanding performance and reliability requirements. These same IC reliability verifications tools can be used to validate circuit operation for "infotainment" and "connected car" applications, and ensure that customer reliability expectations are satisfied.

Chip-package co-design is important for several reasons. Designing a large high power die, e.g. a System-on-Chip (SoC) without considering how to get the heat out is likely to lead
Today, the ability to track the orientation or position of a device is a common feature in many portable and wearable products. Computing the orientation is a non-trivial task that
Data center power load (and therefore heat dissipation) footprints continue to rise in response to growing demand for information storage and transfer. Cooling constitutes a major cost in the operation of a data center which has led to increased focus on minimizing energy use in data centers.
A natural focus when designing electronics products are, well the electronics. The electronics itself however, needs to work within some kind of enclosure, and must be designed with the enclosure in mind. Cooling is a system issue, which is why we advocate a top-down approach, starting at the enclosure level.
Recently, physics-based reliability prediction has related electronic assembly failure rates to the rate and magnitude of temperature change over an operational cycle, both of which are influenced by steady-state operating temperature. Whether the intention is to increase reliability, or improve performance, accurate prediction of component temperatures helps meet design goals.
Many aspects of a PCBâs performance are determined during detailed design. Thermal issues with the PCB design are largely âlocked inâ during the component (i.e. chip package)
