Baby Got DAC

The Design Automation Conference Returns to the City by the Bay

Do you know the way to San Francisco? Do you know the way to rows and rows of obscure interesting and innovative point tools? In this week’s Fish Fry, we examine two sides of the multi-faceted ecosystem that is the Design Automation Conference – EDA and IC. On the EDA side, we chat with Chris Porter and Salem Kapetanovic from IBM about how EDA can leverage the Cloud in a whole new way. On the integrated circuit side of DAC life, we chat with eSilicon CEO Jack Harding about how eSilicon is bringing eCommerce to IC design and why IP MarketPlace should be your next stop on the way to GDS11. Also this week, we unveil Amelia’s top five things you may have missed at DAC. (Spoiler alert: DAC Attendees apparently don’t know how to play Jenga™.)

PCIe Gen5 x16 Running on the Achronix VectorPath Accelerator Card

Sponsored by Achronix

In this demo, Achronix engineers show the VectorPath Accelerator Card successfully linking up to a PCIe Gen5 x16 host and write data to and read data from GDDR6 memory. The VectorPath accelerator card featuring the Speedster7t FPGA is one of the first FPGAs that can natively support this interface within its PCIe subsystem. Speedster7t FPGAs offer a revolutionary new architecture that Achronix developed to address the highest performance data acceleration challenges.

"Scalable Power Delivery" for High-Performance ASICs, SoCs, and xPUs

Sponsored by Infineon

Today’s AI and Networking applications are driving an exponential increase in compute power. When it comes to scaling power for these kinds of applications with next generation chipsets, we need to keep in mind package size constraints, dynamic current balancing, and output capacitance. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Mark Rodrigues from Infineon joins Amelia Dalton to discuss the system design challenges with increasing power density for next generation chipsets, the benefits that phase paralleling brings to the table, and why Infineon’s best in class transient performance with XDP architecture and Trans Inductor Voltage Regulator can help power  your next high performance ASIC, SoC or xPU design.
