Machine learning is once again taking center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! Rod Metcalfe (Cadence Design Systems) joins me to discuss the role of machine learning in the future of chip design, why implementation teams are having a hard time keeping up with today’s advanced node designs, and how advancements in computer science are helping usher in a new age of intelligent … Read More → "Machine Learning and The New Age of Intelligent Chip Design"
If you are a hardware design engineer, you are doubtless familiar with the concept of formal verification as it applies to hardware design, but have you ever considered how formal verification might relate to software and the developers thereof (bless their little cotton socks)?
Life can be a rum old thing, and no mistake. When it comes to formal verification, … Read More → "If You Can’t Trust TrustInSoft, Who Can You Trust?"
I was just chatting with the chaps and chapesses at Testonica. These little scamps offer a wide range of services, including test and measurement (T&M) and design for test (DFT) analysis, FPGA-based development, embedded software development, and electronics hardware design. The thing that really caught my … Read More → "Got FPGA? Got Test!"
Just to make sure I have your attention, let’s start with the conclusion and then I’ll tell you how we got there. Is that OK with you? Good. In that case, the conclusion is that the clever folks at CacheQ have come up with a cunning solution that can take your regular single-threaded C/C++ code and compile it in such a way as … Read More → "Accelerating C/C++ Without Tears or Tribulations"
Sometimes the biggest engineering challenge is overcoming NIH. The dreaded “not invented here” syndrome has derailed many a project, cost untold millions, wasted months, and produced inferior products. NIH is like our own children: it’s hard not to fall in love and overlook the flaws.
Sometimes what we need is a whack on the head and someone to tell … Read More → "Find Your Security in the Cloud"
My poor old noggin is currently full of ideas ricocheting around like corn kernels in an over-enthusiastic popcorn machine. As a tempting teaser, are you aware that: “Tachyum is enabling human brain-scale AI and advancing the entire world to a greener era by delivering the world’s first universal processor”? If not, then I will be delighted to expound, explicate, and elucidate, but first…< … Read More → "Are We Ready for Human Brain-Scale AI?"
