Robots, Emulators and Even More Mega Fun

Have you ever been sitting back in your cube, resting and having a coke after lunch thinkin’ “Hey, I really should get into the emulation business.” Oh, you haven’t? I guess that’s just me then. Yep, there are some certain aspects of electronic design that we should just let someone else deal with. This week my guest is EVE CEO and President Luc Burgun. Luc and I discuss what emulation is all about, where EVE fits into the grand scheme of EDA, and how emulators can help you debug your next design. Oh, and I officially challenge Luc to a karaoke face off.

Also this week, we’ve got a 13 ft Kinect-controlled robot, the newest acquisition happening in EDA, and an XMEGA-A3BU Xplained kit (courtesy of Atmel) to give away.

Better PPA with Innovus Mixed Placer Technology – Gigaplace XL

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

With the increase of on-chip storage elements, it has become extremely time consuming to come up with an optimized floorplan with manual methods. Innovus Implementation’s advanced multi-objective placement technology, GigaPlace XL, provides automation to optimize at scale, concurrent placement of macros, and standard cells for multiple objectives like timing, wirelength, congestion, and power. This technology provides an innovative way to address design productivity along with design quality improvements reducing weeks of manual floorplan time down to a few hours.

Keeping Your Linux Device Secure

Sponsored by Mentor

Embedded security is an ongoing process, not a one-time effort. Even after your design is shipped, security vulnerabilities are certain to be discovered - even in things like the operating system. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kathy Tufto from Mentor - a Siemens business, about how to make a plan to keep your Linux-based embedded design secure, and how to respond quickly when new vulnerabilities are discovered.
