    #NEWS Diamond Microchips Going Commercial Starting with 100 GHz Processors that Run Cool
    Published. May 13, 2016

    After a decade of development diamond semiconductors may be ready for prime time. Even at the 100 nanometer node, they are 10X faster than silicon, enabling Moores Law to reset a decade, and processor speeds to be ramped up to the terahertz range, rather than be stuck at 5-GHz resulting in hard-to-program multi-core substitutes of pure speed.?...

    Achieve the Next Level of Verification Productivity with Specman Advanced Option
    Published. January 18, 2011

    Advanced verification customers are seeing their verification environments getting more and more complex requiring millions of lines of code spread across hundreds, even thousands of files that are re-used from Block --> SoC --> System level. Today's design under test (DUT) can be extremely complex and, as a result, verifying every feature, in every mode of operation, under all conditions is extremely difficult to achieve. Achieving high DUT coverage is getting very challenging. Companies...

    New 16Gbps Multi-link, Multi-protocol SerDes PHY Enhances Datacenter Connectivity
    Published. January 18, 2016

    PCIe Gen4 is bringing new possibilities to servers and virtualization. The interface increases the bandwidth and value of data transmission from server to server, switch to switch, and server to storage, enabling even larger dataset analysis and other complex cloud services. High-speed SerDes technology is used to implement these high-speed connections, often at advanced nodes such as 14/16nm. To be sure, it's becoming increasingly difficult to create robust designs while meeting short project...

    Xilinx SoC FPGAs Ideal Fit For OVM and MDV
    Published. June 24, 2009

    Processor-based FPGAs represent 40% of all the design starts today and will rise to > 50% in 2011 (Gartner, March 2009). In the same time period, the number of ASIC-based SoC starts is about an order of magnitude smaller. Sure, many of the FPGA starts use 8-bit processors and have a small amount of logic, but the high-end SoCs -- represented by product families such as the Xilinx(R) Virtex(R)-6 and Spartan(R)-6 -- are growing fast. That is exactly the type of design we've targeted with the...

    What’s New with Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC)
    Published. August 15, 2016

    Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) is a memory architecture that was developed by Micron in 2011. It was developed in response to the high-bandwidth, high-efficiency memory requirements of multi-core processing in supercomputing and advanced network systems. HMC represents a fundamental and key change in how memory is used in the system. By placing intelligent memory on the same substrate as the processing unit, each part of the system can do what it's designed to do far more optimally than any previous...
