Blog Review – Tuesday, August 18, 2015

Where will the future of embedded software lead; Manufacturing success; DDR memory IP – a personal view; Untangling the IoT protocols; The battle of virtual prototyping; Accellera SI update; Smart buildings; SoC crisis management

The rise of phones, GPS, tablets and cars means embedded software increases in complexity, muses Colin Walls, Mentor Graphics. He traces the route of hardware and software in simple systems to ones that have to work harder and smarter.

Managing to avoid sounding smug, Falan Yinug reports on the SIA (Semiconductor Industry Association) paper confirming the semiconductor industry is the USA’s most innovative manufacturing industry, and looks at its role in the economy.

Less about being a woman in technology and more about the nitty gritty of DDR controller memory IP, Anne Hughes, DDR IP Engineering, Cadence talks to Christine Young.

Fitting protocols like CoAp and IPSO smart objects in the IoT structure can be daunting, but Pratulsharma, ARM, has written an illustrated blog that can lead readers through the wilderness.

Clearly taken with the Battlebots TV show, Tom De Schutter, Synopsys, considers how to minimise design risks to avoid destruction, or at least behave as intended.

A considered view of the Accellera Sytems Initiative is given by Gabe Moretti, Chip Design Magazine. He elaborates on what the UVM standardization will mean for the wider EDA industry.

Where the IoT is used, and how, for smart buildings, is examined by Rob Sheppard, Intel.

Alarming in his honesty, Gadge Panesar, Ultrasoc, says no-one know how SoCs operate and urges others to be as honest as he is and seek help – with some analytics and IP independence.
