    Blog Post: Simulating electromagnetic interference – is it possible?
    Published. December 1, 2015

    Today, gigahertz processors powered by high-frequency multi-phase DC/DC converters communicate with memory at gigahertz speeds. At these frequencies, component and printed circuit board (PCB) parasitic impedances create frequency dependent voltage drops, antenna structures and PCB resonances that in turn create electromagnetic interference (EMI), signal integrity and power integrity (SI/PI) issues. In a previous post , I examined the challenge of meeting electromagnetic compliance with ultrafast,...

    Published. July 22, 2013

It took me about fifteen minutes to stop a crappy Microsoft patent from being approved. Got fifteen minutes? You can do it too. In a minute, I’ll tell you that story. But first, a little background. Software developers don’t actually invent very much. The number of actually novel, non-obvious inventions in the software industry that maybe, in some universe, deserve a...

    Full System vs Sub-system Virtual Prototyping
    Published. August 6, 2009

    There is a strong movement in the industry to move to create Virtual Prototypes of systems, prior to RTL coding. These Virtual Prototypes are being used for early software development and architectural analysis. Since there are typically many blocks in a design, the development of a Virtual Prototype can be unwieldy. While you might have a goal of creating one, you may be dazed at the number of components that need to be created or acquired (multiple CPU's, DSP's, MPEG engines, multiple memory...
