Cadence has developed a stimulus optimizer based on neural networks to try to improve the runtime of constrained-random verification runs.
Recent developments have made Open-RAN look more attractive as a way of implementing 5G systems. This is helping to drive a shift-left in verification and test.
The chair of Accellera’s IP security assurance working group expects the draft standard for hardening hardware core to be out by the end of the year.
Talks in the Design-on-Cloud Pavilion at this year’s DAC demonstrated how the question over its usage is not so much whether design could or should migrate to the cloud but how to optimize cost and performance when it’s there.
DTCO and 3D integration will dominate scaling in the coming decade, TSMC chief scientist Philip Wong claimed in his keynote at DAC on Monday
Breker has added a number of specialized apps to its library that deal with the verification of RISC-V processors, secure enclaves, and machine-learning designs.
Mentor adds Analog FastSPICE eXTreme innovations for designs facing increasing parasitic complexity and contact resistance challenges at cutting edge nodes.
Mentor has released a tool that attempts to deal with the problems encountered in the use of physical circuit verification in the early stages of SoC integration.
At DAC this week, Verifyter is offering a limited number of companies free six-month licences of its regression-analysis tool Pindown.
Heterogeneous integration has the potential to overcome the yield and cost challenges presented by the growing headwinds associated with process scaling. But it may take a dramatic rethink in design approaches.
