The Next Frontier of Functional Verification

Breker and the Rising Star of Portable Stimulus

This week’s episode of Fish Fry runs the gamut of electronic design. First, check out how an Italian engineering student built a 3D printer for only twelve dollars! (Spoiler alert: He used recycled parts from three inkjet printers and a flatbed scanner). Next, Breker CEO Adnan Hamid joins us to discuss the controversy around portable stimulus representation models, the future of portable stimulus, and why he thinks we’re just scratching the surface of what portable stimulus can be. Closing out this week’s podcast episode, I take a closer look at choosing the right capacitor for your next SSD hold-up application.

True 3D EM Modeling Enables Fast, Accurate Analysis

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

Tired of patchwork 3D EM analysis? Impedance discontinuity can destroy your BER and cause multiple design iterations. Using today’s 3D EM modeling tools can take you days to accurately model the interconnect structures. The Clarity™ 3D Solver lets you tackle the most complex EM challenges when designing systems for 5G, high-performance computing, automotive and machine learning applications. The Clarity 3D Solver delivers gold-standard accuracy, 10X faster analysis speeds and virtually unlimited capacity for true 3D modeling of critical interconnects in PCB, IC package and system-on-IC (SoIC) designs.
