Hierarchical signoff strategies for large SoCs at advanced nodes can be effective if sufficient attention is paid to reflecting the impact of cross-hierarchy parasitics.
FinFET processes and libraries are maturing, enabling designers to explore the best ways to take advantage of the capabilities of the new transistor design
A look at how DDR DRAM is being adapted for use in automotive systems, and the demands its use puts upon interface IP for SoCs.
Considering the issue of functional safety verification in automotive systems design, within the context of ISO26262
A look at implementing Bluetooth low energy interfaces into a design and the trade-offs involved in making different levels of integration
Engineers developing an SoC for the automotive market have to show that it doesn’t have functional safety issues - even if the SoC enters an unexpected state. Here's how to tackle the safety verification task.
Three senior verification specialists talk about how they are navigating the challenge of verifying multibillion-transistor SoCs with limited compute resource, increasing coverage demands and shrinking timescales.
IoT security is critical. Embedding a root of trust in hardware can provide the firm foundation necessary for a more secure IoT implementation.
Emulators have come a long way since their first introduction nearly three decades ago.
