Chalk Talks Featuring Cadence
Machine-Learning Optimized Chip Design -- Cadence Design Systems
New applications and technology are driving demand for even more compute and functionality in the devices we use every day. System on chip (SoC) designs are quickly migrating to new process nodes, and rapidly growing in size and complexity. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rod Metcalfe about how machine learning combined with distributed computing offers new capabilities to automate and scale RTL to GDS chip implementation flows, enabling design teams to support more, and increasingly complex, SoC projects.
Cloud Computing for Electronic Design (Are We There Yet?)
When your project is at crunch time, a shortage of server capacity can bring your schedule to a crawl. But, the rest of the year, having a bunch of extra servers sitting around idle can be extremely expensive. Cloud-based EDA lets you have exactly the compute resources you need, when you need them. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Craig Johnson of Cadence Design Systems about Cadence’s cloud-based EDA solutions.
TensorFlow to RTL with High-Level Synthesis
Bridging the gap from the AI and data science world to the RTL and hardware design world can be challenging. High-level synthesis (HLS) can provide a mechanism to get from AI frameworks like TensorFlow into synthesizable RTL, enabling the development of high-performance inference architectures. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Dave Apte of Cadence Design Systems about doing AI design with HLS.
Cadence Celsius Thermal Solver
Electrical-thermal co-simulation can dramatically improve the system design process, allowing thermal design adaptation to be done much earlier. The Cadence Celsius Thermal Solver is a complete electrical-thermal co-simulation solution for the full hierarchy of electronic systems from ICs to physical enclosures. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with CT Kao of Cadence Design Systems about how the Celsius Thermal Solver can help detect and mitigate thermal issues early in the design process.

Integrity 3D-IC: Industry’s First Fully Integrated 3D-IC Platform
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.
3D-IC Design Challenges and Requirements
3D-ICs are expected to have a broad impact on networking, graphics, AI/ML, and high-performance computing. While there’s interest in 3D-ICs, it’s still in its early phases. Standard definitions are lacking, the supply chain ecosystem is in flux, and design, analysis, verification, and test challenges need to be resolved. Read this white paper to learn about 3D integration and packaging of multiple stacked dies, design challenges, ecosystem requirements, and needed solutions.
