In a presentation at the recent ARM TechCon, HiSilicon described the issues in putting together a 16nm finFET-based design built around a cluster of ARM’s Cortex A57 processors.
Canadian startup Invionics has launched a development environment and packager intended to make it easier for users within chipmakers and design houses to build customized tools.
TSMC says it has begun risk production on its FinFET Plus (16FF+) process, claiming that it has reached a greater level of maturity earlier in its development cycle than previous nodes developed at the foundry.
Are we torn between evolution and revolution? Mentor Graphics' Joe Sawicki discusses how pattern matching already in fabs could move up and radically alter the design flow.
Cadence Design Systems has launched an analog simulation tool designed to speed up the characterization of mixed-signal macros that can then be used to create the Liberty representations needed for full-chip signoff.
Cadence Design Systems has built a verification environment around its vManager software for ICs and systems that need to conform to the ISO 26262 safety standard.
GlobalFoundries is to acquire IBM's fabs in a deal that sees the server maker pay the foundry $1.5bn over five years and agree to exclusivity to 10nm.
Carbon Design Systems has introduced a web portal to streamline the process of finding the most appropriate executable models for a system-level virtual prototype.
ARM has launched a pair of tools designed to improve the density and performance of finFET designs that use the company's physical libraries.
A multiprocessor test chip has led ARM to improve the energy-control strategy for its Big.Little architecture and to simplify the debug architecture for the company's multicore processor IP.
