RTL Roundup

Taming the Wild West of EDA Design with OneSpin

This week we’re saddling up and taking a ride into the Wild West, where the days are long and the code is even longer. We’re talking about the rough and tumble, SystemC slingin’, HLS wranglin’ assertion-based formal verification. Dave Kelf (OneSpin Solutions) rides with us across the dusty EDA plains of RTL design where we unveil why RTL (and above) is called the Wild West of Design, who exactly is playing sheriff in these here parts, and how design and verification at the RTL level can be corralled once and for all. Also this week, we address the most recent rumors surrounding the Intel/Altera buyout deal and investigate the newest (and coolest) smartwatch this side of the Mississippi – an Enigma machine for your wrist!

Mission Critical Electrical Controls

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Littelfuse

If you are working on a mission-critical design, there is a very important list of requirements that you will need to consider for your electromechanical controls including how well they have been tested, availability of inventory, and the quality of the components. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with John Saathoff from Littelfuse electromechanical solutions offered by Hartland Controls, the benefits Hartland brings to the table when it comes to mission-critical designs, and how you can get started using Hartland Controls for your next design.
