These Silicon Times – They Are a Changin’

From Silicon to Tools and Back Again

With Moore’s Law in our back pocket, we’re hitching a ride to 2015 and the next process nodes. That’s right, we’re talking hardcore chip design. From your silicon dreams to their verified reality, we’re looking at each step of the chip design process with Frank Schirrmeister from Cadence Design Systems. Frank and I are going to chat about some serious top-to-bottom design flow business and try to map out a path to the future.

Also this week, I’ve got a Freescale Freedom Development Kit to give away (courtesy of Mouser Electronics) and you can enter to win by commenting on this week’s Fish Fry page.

Let'€™s face it: We'€™re addicted to SRAM. It'€™s big, it'€™s power-hungry, but it'€™s fast. And no matter how much we complain about it, we still use it. Because we don'€™t have anything better in the mainstream yet. We'€™ve looked at attempts to improve conven...
