New Synopsys SoC Test Features

Cell-Aware: Meet Slack-Based. And STAR: Meet eFlash.

by Bryon Moyer

Ah, the air has cooled. The sun lolls about at a low angle for a few tentative hours. Morning frosts seal the fate of any remaining tender plants. Here in northern Oregon, the Gorge winds blow random gale-force patterns, making it unnecessary to sweep the leaves off of the patio. And, slightly farther north, it’s ITC (that would be the International Test Conference) season, in Seattle this year.

Which means it’s the season for test announcements by EDA companies. Synopsys made some noise, but not with one big blockbuster new thing; rather they assembled a couple of newsy bits that, summed together, merit some discussion.

Just to organize my thinking here, so that I don’t get us lost, there are two basic announcements: Cell-aware+Slack-based testing and STAR for eFLASH. The first involves two subtopics that we should review first.  Read More

Supply and demand go hand in hand. Where demand exists, supply will meet it. Some people demand they have dinosaur fossils, which leads to the interesting underworld of fossil smuggling. One of the more significant examples in recent memory is the case of…

Not sure it's a good analogy (the "road" thing). The way we write software (C/C++) is very dependent on how the machines work, so there's a lot of interdependency that shouldn't be there in the "stack". The "top" of the current stack is reminding me of ho…
