EDA All Around

DVCon, Aldec Meets Hitatchi, and Parties Galore

In honor of DVCon this week, we’re rounding up all the verification jokes we can muster. “I just finished verifying my multicores and boy are my ARMs tired.” Or maybe: “How many verification engineers does it take to change a lightbulb?” “None, of course – but they will be able to confirm that the bulb has actually been changed.” Or how about: “Seriously folks – take my dev-kit… Please!”

In Fish Fry this week, we’re looking at the themes, parties, and verification technologies at DVCon 2013. Keeping with the EDA theme, I also chat with Dmitry Melnick (Aldec) about the details of Aldec’s recent collaboration with Hitatchi and why he thinks traditional coding styles are no longer adequate for our multi-million gate FPGA designs.

I have a Microchip chipKIT Educational Starter Pack to give away (courtesy of Newark element14) to one lucky listener this week.

Silicon Lifecycle Management Paradigm Shift

Sponsored by Synopsys

An end-to-end platform solution, Silicon Lifecycle Management leverages existing, mature, world-class technologies within Synopsys. This exciting new concept will revolutionize the semiconductor industry and how we manage silicon design. For the first time, designers can look inside silicon chip devices from the moment the design is created to the point at which they end their life.

Thermocouple Temperature Sensor Solution

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

When it comes to temperature monitoring and management, industrial applications can be extremely demanding. With temperatures that can range from 270 to 3000 C, consumer-grade temperature probes just don’t cut it. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Ezana Haile of Microchip technology about using thermocouples for temperature monitoring in industrial applications.
