The Productivity Gap

Lynx Design System Bridges the Breach Between Chip Capacity and Engineering Ability

He’s been up all night. The row of green and white soda cans marks the passage of time in a steady line across his desk. Everyone else has gone home for the day, but he’s still here, clicking “send to voicemail” on his Mom’s call. Nothing, including days without sleep, is going to distract him from his looming deadline. We’ve all been there at least once or twice in our career – burning the engineering candle at both ends, struggling to do more with less. In this week’s Fish Fry, we take a closer look at the “Productivity Gap” that plagues all of us at one time or another. Andy Potemski (Synopsys) and I discuss the void between the enormous capacity of today’s chips and our ability to get the design job done. We discuss how the Lynx Design System can make our system design lives a whole lot easier and why the “Productivity Gap” is more prevalent now than ever before.

Let'€™s face it: We'€™re addicted to SRAM. It'€™s big, it'€™s power-hungry, but it'€™s fast. And no matter how much we complain about it, we still use it. Because we don'€™t have anything better in the mainstream yet. We'€™ve looked at attempts to improve conven...
