Mouse with 3D-printed ovaries gives birth to healthy pups

A mouse with 3D-printed ovaries has successfully given birth to healthy pups, according to a new study. Researchers hope that one day we can use similar techniques to help women who struggle with fertility.

For the study, published today in the journal Nature Communications, the team replaced a mouse’s ovaries with 3D-printed ones. These 3D-printed ovaries held ovarian follicles, or fluid-filled sacs that hold immature eggs. The new ovaries supported the follicles and eggs long enough for the mouse to ovulate, conceive, and give birth. (The study was done by the same Northwestern University team that earlier built a tiny reproductive system in a dish.)

Integrity 3D-IC: Industry’s First Fully Integrated 3D-IC Platform

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

3D stacking of ICs is emerging as a preferred solution for chip designers facing a slowdown in Moore’s Law and the rising costs of advanced nodes. However, chip stacking creates new complexities, with extra considerations required for the mechanical, electrical, and thermal aspects of the whole stacked system. Watch this video for an overview of Cadence® Integrity™ 3D-IC, a comprehensive platform for 3D planning, implementation, and system analysis, enabling system-driven PPA for multi-chiplet designs.

Add Authentication Security to Automotive Endpoints Using the 1-Wire Interface

Sponsored by Analog Devices

By adding a single authentication IC, automotive designers can authenticate a component with only one signal between an ECU and endpoint component. This is particularly important as counterfeit and theft are increasingly problems in automotive applications. This application note describes how to implement the DS28E40 Deep Cover 1-Wire Authenticator in a system to provide authentication for optical cameras, headlamps, EV Batteries, occupancy sensors, and even steering wheels, and more.

Accelerating Physical Verification Productivity Part Two

Sponsored by Synopsys

Physical verification of IC designs at today’s advanced process nodes requires an immense amount of processing power. But, getting your design and verification tools to take full advantage of the compute resources available can be a challenge. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Manoz Palaparthi of Synopsys about dramatically improving the performance of your physical verification process.
