The adoption of RISC-V is spreading. Versatility and “freedom to innovate” are powering the ecosystem. In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Frank Schirrmeister from Arteris and I explore how to enable better architecture optimization, manage different protocols with ease, and reduce interconnect area plus power consumption with network-on-chip IP. Also this week, I check out new … Read More → "The Freedom to Innovate: Arteris and the Rise of RISC-V"
I often think about ancient civilizations. I’m sure you do too. I cogitate and ruminate on all the people who lived, loved, and died, and I’m saddened by the fact that we no longer remember their names. In many cases, we aren’t even aware that their civilizations existed (I base this on the fact we … Read More → "Before Computers Were Logic Diagrams and Machines"
Do you remember the song Blinded by the Light? This composition, which was originally written and recorded by Bruce Springsteen, first appeared on his 1973 debut album, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. Bruce is, of course, a legend. As awesome as his rendition is, however, I will always associate Blinded by the Light with Manfred … Read More → "Blinded by the Light"
As I’ve mentioned in previous columns, one of my backburner hobby projects is writing a book called “Wroting Inglish: The Essential Guide to Writing English for Anyone Who Doesn’t Want to be Thought a Dingbat.” When I commenced work on this project, the audience I had in mind was primarily my peeps (engineers). More recently, … Read More → "Grammar for Professionals, e.g. vs. i.e. All Becomes Clear"
There are many things I don’t know much (if anything) about. So many, in fact, that I could write a book about them… or not, as the case might be. An example of one of the things I know very little about would be touchscreens, which makes it somewhat paradoxical that these little scamps are … Read More → "Say Howdy to High Fidelity Software-Defined Sensing for the 21st Century"
I’m not having a good day. “Why so?” You ask. Well, thank you so much for caring. I have a sad tale to tell—one that will doubtless bring a little tear to your eye. I stand before you a broken man, hanging my head in shame, with my credentials as an engineer hanging in tatters. … Read More → "Gruesome Gambols Gripping Generative AI (Part 2)"
The Network-on-Chip Pioneer: How Arteris Enabling SoC Developers to Create Physically Valid NoCs Faster
Physically aware network-on-chips take center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! Andy Nightingale from Arteris and I investigate the role that network-on-chips have played in the development of SoC designs. We also discuss the details of Arteris’ FlexNoC 5 Physically Aware Network-on-Chip IP, and how a physically aware NoC can not only help you address … Read More → "The Network-on-Chip Pioneer: How Arteris Enabling SoC Developers to Create Physically Valid NoCs Faster"
Flex Logix configurable hardware IP for AI and DSP workloads fuses FPGAs, tensor units, and software
Today, we’re going to talk about AI, DSP, FPGAs, IP, and SoCs. Normally, these things don’t all go together. Certainly, FPGAs have been used to implement AI and DSP algorithms, although AI and DSP algorithms generally involve different sorts of computations. (See “A Brief History of the Single-Chip DSP, Part II .”) DSP designs have … Read More → "Flex Logix configurable hardware IP for AI and DSP workloads fuses FPGAs, tensor units, and software"
I can’t help myself. I keep thinking about the 1961 musical Stop the World—I Want to Get Off. After opening in Manchester, England, the show transferred to the West End, London, where it ran for 485 performances. It’s not that the plot of this extravaganza has anything to do with what we are talking about … Read More → "Mind-Boggling Neuromorphic Brain Chips (Part 1)"

Why is Design for Testability (DFT) crucial for VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration) design? Keeping testability in mind when developing a chip makes it simpler to find structural flaws in the chip and make necessary design corrections before the product is shipped to users. T...
