Accellera’s Portable Stimulus standard aims to improve verification efficiency and the reuse of test IP across the entire design life cycle.
FinFETs present a number of problems with respect to dynamic power consumption. Design techniques are being re-evaluated to deal with the issue.
Monolithic 3DIC integration may provide a viable alternative to conventional 2D scaling for SoCs if manufacturing problems can be overcome.
Refactoring saves time and resuources by converting code to a common format and eliminates redundancies to make it more readable and maintainable.
Hierarchical DFT for Arm-based SoCs is easier than ever with the arrival of a complete reference flow from Mentor and Arm.
Doc Formal rounds up some of the the key observations about verfication made during July’s Synopsys VC Formal SIG event in India.
