Low-Power Verification With SystemC - The Great Unknown / (Team genIES Blog)
Design teams have used C/C++/SystemC reference models for many years and the trend is growing with SystemC synthesis. At the same time, many teams are adding power-aware structures to their designs and trying to simulate. So what happens when the models encounter unknowns propagated from shutdown blocks? For the unprepared,...

Comment on How you measure your ripple can make you or break you / (TI E2E Community)
It’s true, using the 50 Ohm termination does essentially add a load of 50 Ohms to the output of the supply, but it also keeps the whole transmission path relatively low impedance. With the 1 Meg setting, you’re a lot more likely to be picking up noise with the cable itself with the antenna effect. If you’re confident...
MIPI DevCon 2016 – Mobile and Beyond The word “beyond” may bring up thoughts of the new Star Trek Beyond movie, or for those of you who are fascinated by real space travel, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Maybe that’s why the first MIPI Alliance® Developer’s...

As an early option for data organization, the FAT file system attained a certain ubiquity. This paper examines characteristics of the FAT file system that leave it vulnerable to corruption, and some ways vendors (including Microsoft) are trying to make it more reliable. Can reliability be achieved without sacrificing interoperability? Is the performance cost worth the benefit?
LPDDR4 offers huge bandwidth in a physically small PCB area and volume; up to 25.6 GByte/s of bandwidth at a 3,200 Mbps data rate from a single 15mmx15mm LPDDR4 package when two dies are packaged together. LPDDR4 builds on the success of LPDDR2 and LPDDR3 by adding new features and introducing a major architectural change. This white paper discusses why designers are selecting LPDDR4, how to handle 2-die and 4-die packages with multi-channel connections, the advantages of sharing channels through system-on-chip (SoC) partitioning, and how to optimize channels for the lowest power consumption.
Architectural exploration is at the heart of any ASIP design approach. This white paper explains the architectural tradeoffs available to an ASIP designer, such as performance vs. area, and why an ASIP design can still maintain full C-programmability while being optimized for a certain application domain.
Often when selecting a component in the signal path of a satellite system, it is difficult to find a device with the radiation tolerance and the accuracy required. Signal integrity
