Chalk Talks Featuring Synopsys

Expanding SiliconMAX SLM to In-Field
In order to keep up with the rigorous pace of today’s electronic designs, we must have visibility into each step of our IC design lifecycle including debug, bring up and in-field operation. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Steve Pateras from Synopsys about in-field infrastructure for silicon lifecycle management, the role that edge analytics play when it comes to in-field optimization, and how cloud analytics, runtime agents and SiliconMAX sensor analytics can provide you more information than ever before for the lifecycle of your IC design.

10X Faster Analog Simulation with PrimeSim Continuum
IC design has come a very long way in a short amount of time. Today, our SoC designs frequently include integrated analog, 100+ Gigabit data rates and 3D stacked DRAM integrated into our SoCs on interposers. In order to keep our heads above water in all of this IC complexity, we need a unified circuit simulation workflow and a fast signoff SPICE and FastSPICE architecture. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Hany Elhak from Synopsys about how the unified workflow of the PrimeSim Continuum from Synopsys can help you address systematic and scale complexity for your next IC design.
