    DAC Cabbie Taught Me All I Need to Know About Verification
    Published. June 21, 2010

    Confidence from competence. Measurement through metrics. Sell without selling. These are the pearls I learned from my cab driver on the way home from DAC. Aside from the core truths they convey, they clearly define the top three verification items I saw at 47th DAC in Anaheim this year. Topping my list is the surging interest in OVM as it matriculates into the Accellera UVM. The OVM/UVM booth at DAC picked up nearly 800 leads! Despite relatively flat attendance, this is up roughly 3x over last year...

    DAC 2014—ESL Design Is Dead... Long Live ESL!
    Published. May 27, 2014

    Next week the EDA industry is getting together in San Francisco for Design Automation Conference 2014. As I pointed out in a recent blog called " Confessions of an ESL-Aholic ", the scope of electronic system level (ESL) design has changed quite a bit over the last 15 years, but there is still a lot of promise, and a lot to come. The basic premise of my soberness on classic ESL is that the basic momentum upwards in abstraction continues—as indicated in my graph dated ca. 2001 below—raising...

    Blog Post: Powering Intel’s Xeon D SoC in servers, storage and switches
    Published. July 8, 2016

    Intel’s Xeon D chip, developed under the Broadwell-DE code name, is the first Xeon central processing unit (CPU) to bear the system-on-chip (SoC) title by including two physical chips in one package. This 14nm SoC has the cores, memory controllers, L3 cache, dual Ethernet and Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) Express 3.0 controllers all on one die. A second chip – what used to be called Southbridge – includes legacy PCI Express 2.0 peripheral slots and USB/Serial AT Attachment (SATA)...
