POCV is the Latest Salvo in Improving Timing Analysis Accuracy

by Bryon Moyer

When I was a teen, I remember someone coming to help my Dad plan a big move of some piece of equipment on our orchard. What struck me was how this guy could pre-visualize all the various scenarios and then consider the consequences and, in particular, all the things that could possibly go wrong for the different cases.

I was pretty impressed. It seemed like such thorough analytical capabilities were a skill and a gift. Over time, however, I’ve noticed that such an ability isn’t always appreciated. Because most of the world likes to assume best-case conditions, the “value add” of the more thorough approach is to point out that there are potential negative consequences too. Which makes you Mr. Negative. The pessimist. Always there to dash cold water on a hot idea. Doesn’t matter if you’re right.  Read More

Instruments for the Black-Turtleneck Crowd

The hardware is great, but the software is the real trick to their design. Damn near perfection when it comes to a UI for a logic analyzer.

Also, I suspect that a reason why a lot of people will try to use software (even to a point where it might not make sense) is because they want to avoid hardware as much as possible. I don't blame them.

Being originally a software guy, I was pretty hor…

"Try to start a new EDA or semiconductor company, however, and the piggy bank shrinks to just about zero."
Yep sadly I confirm, this is consistent with what I'm seeing as co-founder of Synflow.

How to create mushroom designs on an oscilloscope signal detector using sound

Posted on 12/18/14 at 4:06 AM by HhindieR

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…

Will all these ways of detecting substances continue to coexist? Or do you see some winning or losing?
