Crossbar Unveils RRAM

A change is comin’. Can you feel it? Most of us have been waiting a long time for a change like this to come around the bend, and now it may finally be here. If it’s up to (newly unstealthed) company Crossbar, the non-volatile memory landscape may never look the same again. In this week’s Fish Fry, we investigate the newest in non-volatile memory technology with Crossbar CEO George Minassian. We chat with George about what Crossbar’s new RRAM memory is all about, what applications it can be used for, and how the industry is reacting to this new non-volatile kid on the block.

Also this week, we look at design security in mainstream SoCs and give away an element14 MEMS Sensors Evaluation Kit courtesy of Newark element14.

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.
