    Blog Post: How energy harvesting can extend the life of your fault indicator on the grid
    Published. October 18, 2017

    Fault indicators are extensively used in grid infrastructure for monitoring overhead and underground transmission lines. These indicators monitor the current flowing in each phase and send commands to circuit breakers upstream to trip when they detect the passage of faulty currents. While some fault indicators flash light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to indicate faults, others record the data and transmit it to a data collector, which then forwards information about the current to a substation for status...

    How Secure is the Car of the Future?
    Published. October 10, 2017

    Modern cars are well on their way to revolutionizing the automotive industry. Intel’s 2017 whitepaper reports that “the newest cars on the road are equipped with active safety features that help protect drivers and passengers, heads-up displays that makes it easy to read instruments, and in-vehicle infotainment that makes the trip more enjoyable.” But with an IoT-enabled automobile comes greater security risks. And by 2020, analysts estimate that there will be more than 250 million connected...

    Encounter Quick Tip: Finding Available Cell Masters with dbGet
    Published. September 28, 2011

    When you first start using dbGet, many of your queries branch off the "top" keyword and then traverse to "insts" or "nets". These searches return a list of all the instances or nets in the design. But sometimes it's necessary to query the available cell masters -- some of which may or may not be instantiated. Common reasons for needing this are for finding things like well taps, end caps, antenna diodes and filler cells. You have a hunch what these cells are called...

    SystemC TLM-2.0 Virtual Platform Direct Memory Interface (DMI) Performance Impact
    Published. June 29, 2012

    One of the most interesting concepts in SystemC TLM-2.0 is the concept of Direct Memory Interface (DMI). I remember when Mentor Graphics introduced Seamless back in the mid-1990's. Many users were impressed with how fast it could run embedded software. Of course, things have changed a lot in the last fifteen years, but many of the principles of simulation performance are still the same as what I wrote in my now ancient book published in 2004. The biggest impact has been the advancement in processor...
