Ben Heck, UVM Primer, and Printing with Metal

The year is drawing to a close, and the snow is falling, but the friday fun is just heatin’ up. Our first guest is none other than Ben Heck from element14’s wildly popular engineering television series “The Ben Heck Show”. Ben gives us an exclusive preview of the next season of “The Ben Heck Show” and lets us in on how he got into this crazy business. Also this week, author Ray Salemi is here to light our way to a special place called UVM land. He’s written a new book called “The UVM Primer: A Step-by-Step Introduction to the Universal Verification Methodology” and he’s here to break UVM down into its geeky bits and pieces. Finally, we close up this week’s Fish Fry with a discussion about some innovative open source plans that could bring 3D metal printing right to your work bench. Saddle up, my friends, the fun is about to begin!

Watch PCIe Gen5 Interface Demo Running on a Speedster®7t FPGA from Achronix

Sponsored by Achronix

PCIe Gen5 is the most advanced PCIe specification available today, providing data link capable of a 32 GT/s for next-generation systems. You can start to design your PCIe Gen5 system today using the Achronix Speedster7t FPGA. This demonstration shows a successful PCIe Gen5 link between a Lecroy PCIe exerciser and a Speedster7t FPGA. The Speedster7t family is one of the first FPGAs available now that natively supports the PCIe Gen5 specification.

3D-IC Design Challenges and Requirements

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

3D-ICs are expected to have a broad impact on networking, graphics, AI/ML, and high-performance computing. While there’s interest in 3D-ICs, it’s still in its early phases. Standard definitions are lacking, the supply chain ecosystem is in flux, and design, analysis, verification, and test challenges need to be resolved. Read this white paper to learn about 3D integration and packaging of multiple stacked dies, design challenges, ecosystem requirements, and needed solutions.

Software and Automotive Safety

Sponsored by Siemens Digital Industries Software

In the realm of automotive designs, safety must reign above all else. But the question remains: How can we innovate within the constraints of today’s safety standards? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rob Bates from Siemens about the role ISO 26262 plays when it comes to COTS and open source software, what certified software components are all about, and how heterogeneous multiprocessing can be helpful in your next automotive design.
