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.

[From the last episode: We looked at subroutines in computer programs.] We saw a couple weeks ago that some memories are big, but slow (flash memory). Others are fast, but not so big '€“ and they'€™re power-hungry to boot (SRAM). This sets up an interesting problem. When ...
