Dr Ron Black also discussed his experiences with the Internet of Things in a lively keynote at the GSA Memory+ Conference in Taipei
Cadence Design Systems has launched IP cores for high-end mobile audio as well as gigasample ADCs for 28nm to support 60GHz wireless.
Accellera has vendor extensions for IP-XACT that allow tool-specific metadata to be added to support activities such as power-aware verification and floorplanning.
SoC design gets hierarchical test strategy, improved compression; system design gains end-to-end IJTAG integration strategy
Synopsys automates standards-based hierarchical test insertion and improves test compression for SoCs; Mentor teams with ScanWorks for system-wide IJTAG.
ARM has agreed to buy from Cadence Design Systems the display controller IP cores developed by recent acquisition Evatronix.
ARM and Synopsys both plan to make inroads to the internet of things with their IP strategies.
To get others to adopt its GPU cores, Nvidia must quickly build partnerships with tool vendors and foundries that guarantee easy implementation.
Graphics chipmaker nVidia has said it plans to license as IP cores some of its technology in the hope of building up a customer base among other chipmakers and systems houses developing their own SoCs.
Latest addition to DesignWare portfolio balances trade-offs across CPUs, GPUs and DSPs while automating custom design techniques such as multi-bit flip flops.
The arrival of the finFET brings with it simulation and physical restrictions that might lead teams to resort to layout automation to get the job done.
