An interconnect, also referred to as a bus matrix or fabric, serves as the communication hub of multiple intellectual property (IP) cores inside a system on chip (SoC). As the capacity of today’s SoCs continues to increase dramatically…
Finding the optimal configuration options that meet the requirements of a particular system requires complementary design tools to enable the designer to rapidly explore and correlate trade-offs in performance, power, and area (PPA).
The recent advent of low-cost cluster management offerings have allowed IT organizations to adopt failover techniques for a variety of mission-critical systems, including the ENOVIA Synchronicity DesignSync Design Data Management (DDM) product from Dassault Systèmes. This paper provides a detailed example developed with a current semiconductor customer.
When templates, methodologies and verification IP components were integrated, suddenly simulation speed took a nosedive. Here’s why.
A new method for dramatically reducing CPU and RAM resource requirements.
New techniques that are making advanced SoC verification possible.
The relative advantages and disadvantages of single-threaded tag and multi-threaded non-blocking protocols.
A trove of technical videos and presentations from Cadence and other companies.
RTL flows are straining to meet the demands of most product teams. Moving up a level of abstraction is no longer an option.
A new design methodology is needed for rapid layout prototyping, in-design signoff and to improve collaboration between schematic and layout designers.
