Emulation IoT Networking Challenges

Emulation overcomes the five main IoT and networking verification challenges

More protocols, multibillion-gate designs, minimized power, burgeoning software and, for networking, hundreds of switch and router ports emphasize the need for scalable, virtualized emulation.

Do you GNU? If so, some points to ponder

Open-source toolchains give companies ultimate control over their development environments, but how many can really afford the resources to debug and develop their own tools? Would they be better off with a commercially supported open-source approach?

Now this is a tough one

For the sake of clarity and sanity, let me first point out that you are reading an article written in the fall of 2008. The importance of this will become obvious when I reveal my topic: parallel programming for the multicore age. You thought I was about to claim first-past-the-post on a new technological challenge […]

Systems design automation for real

The Design Automation and Test in Europe (DATE) conference is a comparatively young event—it reached only its 11th edition this March. Nevertheless, it has now firmly established itself on the EDA calendar and this year significantly extended its scope to become the world’s most important electronic systems design automation conference. At the same time, it […]
