Are you ready for an EDA smorgasbord? In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we are laying out virtual buffet of emulation, hardware assisted development, enterprise prototyping, and parser platforms for your friday podcasting pleasure. First up, Frank Schirrmeister (Cadence Design Systems) joins us to dish about our growing thirst for verification, the benefits of FPGA based prototyping and why hardware-assisted development is more and more important these … Read More → "So Many Verification Cycles, So Little Time"
In part 1 of this series, we looked at new high-end FPGA families from Xilinx, Intel, and Achronix and discussed their underlying semiconductor processes, the type and amount of programmable logic LUT fabric, the type and amount of DSP/arithmetic resources and their applicability to AI inference acceleration tasks, the claimed TOPS/FLOPS performance capabilities, and on-chip interconnect … Read More → "High-End FPGA Showdown – Part 3"
There are many roads to prosperity, but one must be taken. Inaction leads nowhere. – Robert Zoellick
Security is not implemented overnight. Standards don’t create themselves. And our design lives won’t get easier if security and standards aren’t addressed at every step of the game. In this week’s podcast, Brent Sherman (Intel), Adam Sherer (Cadence) and I chat about the challenges of … Read More → "Plotting a Course to Functional Safety"
Recently, I was basking in my comfy command chair relishing the adverts on television. They’re really the only thing worth watching since the Gilmore Girls ended (my wife, Gina the Gorgeous, and I just finished watching the re-runs… again) and while one is waiting for the next season of Doctor Who starring Jodie Whittaker to launch in 2020.
One of these adverts showed a bunch of people … Read More → "5G Meets 50,000 Fans at Super Bowl 2025"
The semiconductor IP market is big, growing, lopsided, lumpy, and weird.
What it’s not is particularly lucrative. Which is odd, considering that you’re selling the rights to intangible goods and collecting royalties on that in perpetuity. At first blush, it’s like printing money, just without the money part.
The total IP market raked in somewhere around Read More → "IP Market Large, Growing, and Strange"
“I think everybody understands how important the cloud is.” – Marc Benioff
They say every cloud has a silver lining but does every silver lining have a cloud? In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Craig Johnson (Cadence Design Systems) joins us to discuss a variety of cloud strategies. We investigate how priorities and usage models should influence our choice of cloud models and why different … Read More → "Up Up and Away"
