The Old Man and the C Debugger

“Eliminate all other factors, and the one which remains must be the truth.” – Sherlock Holmes, The Sign of Four

Three engineers are sitting in a rowboat. None of them has any nautical experience or navigational instruments.

As hope for rescue fades, and with no other ships in sight, they pass the time discussing their careers (as … Read More → "The Old Man and the C Debugger"

Security from the Ground Up

It takes 8,460 bolts to assemble an automobile, and one nut to scatter it all over the road.  – Author Unknown

Hello, my name is Amelia and I have read at least four hundred press releases about automotive design this week. It seems that this year’s Consumer Electronics Show has been taken over by automotive design. But behind the pomp and sparkle of CES lies the … Read More → "Security from the Ground Up"

The Road to 5G

5G goes beyond the regular operator business; it’s a business revolution.” – Borje Ekholm

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we travel down the 5G road with Frank Schirrmeister (Cadence Design Systems). Frank and I are dishing the dirt aboutwhat it will take to implement 5G systems and how architecture analysis and performance verification will be crucial to a smooth … Read More → "The Road to 5G"

Introducing Cadence Cloud Portfolio  EDA in the cloud has finally arrived! Now, when you need access to large amounts of computing power to push your design through those critical stages, there is a secure, reliable, powerful cloud-based system that lets you scale your design tools to meet your actual needs. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton … Read More → "Introducing Cadence Cloud Portfolio"
Introducing the Visual Verification Suite’s New HDL Creator  Finding errors in a complex HDL design can be a daunting task. And, most errors aren’t detected until late in the design flow. If we could catch our errors earlier, when we are initially writing the code, we could save enormous amounts of time in simulation, synthesis, and layout. In this episode of Chalk … Read More → "Introducing the Visual Verification Suite’s New HDL Creator"
Understanding Power-Aware SimulationConsidering power delivery and signal integrity separately can lead to suboptimal results in PCB design. Signal return paths can interact with power delivery networks in a number of ways, and power-aware analysis can help identify and correct problems before you build your prototype. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Todd Westerhoff … Read More → "Understanding Power-Aware Simulation"
A New Advanced IC Packaging Battlefield  Today, advanced packaging technology has created a new battleground where 2.5D packaging and heterogeneous design drive constraints that span semiconductor, packaging, board, and even system-level design. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with John Park of Cadence Design Systems about new techniques and tools for advanced IC packaging design. Click here … Read More → "A New Advanced IC Packaging Battlefield"
Shift Left for Fewer PCB Re-Spins   Design rule checking (DRC) is becoming more important with today’s complex PCB designs. With the complexity of today’s designs, the old ad-hoc methods just don’t cut it. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rory Riggs from Mentor about how Hyperlynx DRC can help get your next design out on … Read More → "Shift Left for Fewer PCB Re-Spins"
Scaling Up Vision and AI DSP Performance  For high-performance, low-power processing of AI and machine vision algorithms, latency can be critical. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Pulin Desai from Cadence Design Systems about the using the new Vision Q6 processor core for embedded vision and AI applications.
