    Blog Post: One To Watch: Inventor Amit Gupta juggles PhD research with creating breakthrough innovations
    Published. July 22, 2014

    In our ongoing series, ‘One to Watch,’ we profile the movers and shakers at TI who are making a difference through their extraordinary work. There is no doubt about the power of the sibling relationship. Countless studies have shown the influence an older sibling can play on a younger child, and for TIer Amit Gupta, that is certainly the case. Amit grew up in a small town in India where his father was a farmer. Amit had little to no concept of engineering and had few to look to when...

    Multicore Verification — Don’t Waste Your Cores!
    Published. April 6, 2009

    This weekend I found myself telling my 9-year old daughter to “Eat all of your beans — don’t waste your food!”  It has always bothered me to see perfectly good food get thrown away; these days it seems even more relevant. The same can be said about processor cores in verification. About a year ago, […]...

    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...

One of the key barriers that project teams face when considering use of virtual prototypes is the "missing model syndrome" -- essentially the lack of adequate pre-built IP to assemble into the prototype, and the challenges of creating those models themselves. Some providers have created libraries of models, but without a standard language...
