It's the fiftieth International Test Conference this year. How much has been achieved and how much more work is there to do to ensure that we can keep building chips that do what they are supposed to?
In sessions at the 2015 Design Automation Conference, engineers who had worked on finFET-oriented projects revealed how the technology has changed their design practices and where others may want to think twice about making the move.
Early and accurate SoC power estimation is possible, says Broadcom, thanks to a technique that maps simulation results between gate and RTL representations
Length matching within a differential pair can be one of the more tedious tasks facing a PCB designer. This article describes how a team at communications and consumer electronics semiconductor company Broadcom overcame this by using the automation options available within their design tools. While the article describes automation tailored to a specific task, the […]
