Hot Stuff: You Might Rent the Car Seat that Heats Your Derriere or Your Next Running Shoes

When the first reports of BMW creating a marketing program to rent heated seats in its newest vehicles, the news coverage was designed to make my blood boil. “Pigs!” I thought. “They’re just bleeding their customers dry because cars have become always-connected rolling software platforms.” Here are some of the headlines that led me down the garden path:

The Pursuit of Performance: How AI can Help Optimize Electronic System Design

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Ben Gu from Cadence Design and I chat about bringing AI to the world electronic system design! We investigate the electronic system design challenges engineers are facing today, the benefits that AI brings to electronic system optimization and the details of Cadence’s Optimality Intelligent System Explorer. Also this week, I examine a new lRead More → "The Pursuit of Performance: How AI can Help Optimize Electronic System Design"

Are You Ready for Ubiquitous Connectivity?

Let’s do a thought experiment. Suppose you find yourself trapped in a small space like an elevator and someone looks you in the eye and poses the question: “Are you ready for ubiquitous connectivity?” How would you respond? “Yes,” “No,” “Maybe,” or “What the heck is ubiquitous connectivity when it’s at home?”

Actually, that’s not a bad … Read More → "Are You Ready for Ubiquitous Connectivity?"

Expanding SiliconMAX SLM to In-Field — Synopsys  In order to keep up with the rigorous pace of today’s electronic designs, we must have visibility into each step of our IC design lifecycle including debug, bring up and in-field operation. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Steve Pateras from Synopsys about in-field infrastructure for silicon lifecycle management, the … Read More → "Expanding SiliconMAX SLM to In-Field — Synopsys"
10X Faster Analog Simulation with PrimeSim Continuum – Synopsys  IC design has come a very long way in a short amount of time. Today, our SoC designs frequently include integrated analog, 100+ Gigabit data rates and 3D stacked DRAM integrated into our SoCs on interposers. In order to keep our heads above water in all of this IC complexity, we need a unified … Read More → "10X Faster Analog Simulation with PrimeSim Continuum – Synopsys"
Solutions for Heterogeneous Multicore — Siemens   Multicore processing is more popular than ever before but how do we take advantage of this new kind of processing?
