A Hands-On Guide to Designing Embedded Systems

There are a lot of books available to tell you all about the theoretical side of designing and building embedded systems, but not so many that tackle the nitty-gritty details involved in developing embedded systems that actually work and keep on working, until now…

When I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young lad poised to spend the next four years of … Read More → "A Hands-On Guide to Designing Embedded Systems"

FloatingPoint DSP for You and Me: Why Today’s Real World Designs Need Floating Point Digital Signal Processing

What do sweat-powered batteries and floating point digital signal processing have in common? This week’s Fish Fry podcast of course! We start things off with an investigation into the details of a revolutionary new battery developed by NTU Singapore that is powered by sweat and includes a unique silver flake electrode design. Also this week, Ted Chua (Cadence Design Systems) joins me to discuss the need for floating … Read More → "FloatingPoint DSP for You and Me: Why Today’s Real World Designs Need Floating Point Digital Signal Processing"

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? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Jeff Hancock from Siemens and Amelia Dalton investigate the challenges inherent in multicore processing, the benefits of hypervisors and multicore frameworks, and what you need to consider … Read More → "Solutions for Heterogeneous Multicore — Siemens"
Machine-Learning Optimized Chip Design — Cadence Design Systems  New applications and technology are driving demand for even more compute and functionality in the devices we use every day. System on chip (SoC) designs are quickly migrating to new process nodes, and rapidly growing in size and complexity. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rod Metcalfe about how machine … Read More → "Machine-Learning Optimized Chip Design — Cadence Design Systems"
Yield Explorer and SiliconDash — Synopsys  One a design goes to tape-out, the real challenges begin. Teams find themselves drowning in data from design-process-test during production ramp-up, and have to cope with data from numerous sources in different formats in the manufacturing test supply chain. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Mark Laird of Synopsys in … Read More → "Yield Explorer and SiliconDash — Synopsys"
In-Chip Sensing and PVT Monitoring — Synopsys  In-chip monitoring can significantly alter the lifecycle management landscape. By taking advantage of modern techniques, today’s more complex designs can be optimized even after they are deployed. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Stephen Crosher of Synopsys about silicon lifecycle management and how to take full advantage of the optimization … Read More → "In-Chip Sensing and PVT Monitoring — Synopsys"
Silicon Lifecycle Management (SLM) — Synopsys  Wouldn’t it be great if we could keep on analyzing our IC designs once they are in the field? After all, simulation and lab measurements can never tell the whole story of how devices will behave in real-world use. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Randy Fish of Synopsys about … Read More → "Silicon Lifecycle Management (SLM) — Synopsys"
Accelerating Physical Verification Productivity Part Two — Synopsys  Physical verification of IC designs at today’s advanced process nodes requires an immense amount of processing power. But, getting your design and verification tools to take full advantage of the compute resources available can be a challenge. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Manoz Palaparthi of Synopsys about dramatically improving … Read More → "Accelerating Physical Verification Productivity Part Two — Synopsys"
