  • The Amazing Diversity of the SoC Conference

    Although I attend a number of conferences and tradeshows each year, most of these are rather EDA-centric. But last week I was in Irvine for the eighth annual International System-on-Chip (SoC) Conference. It is a fairly small event -- more like a workshop in some ways -- with a single track over its...

  • EDA Workshop Debate Erupts Over Parallel Programming

    The Electronic Design Processes (EDP) workshop may be a small, technical, IEEE-sponsored event, but that didn't stop a lively debate over the feasibility of parallel processing from erupting last week. The debate comes as EDA vendors, including Cadence, are working hard to port their software to...

  • DAC Report: GPUs Or Multicore For EDA Applications?

    The Wednesday keynote speech at the Design Automation Conference offered a strong argument for general-purpose graphical processing units (GPGPUs) as the best way to accelerate EDA and other compute-intensive applications. But whether GPGPUs will prove to be a better solution than more conventional multicore...

  • Intel's Wind River Acquisition - New Help For Multicore SoCs?

    Intel’s recent purchase of Wind River Systems is an important move that could have a significant impact on embedded systems design. One possible outcome is better support for multicore system-on-chip (SoC) development. Intel’s $884 million purchase of Wind River is part of the semiconductor...

  • Porting EDA Applications to Multicore - Part 3

    It’s easier to build a multi-threaded application from the ground up than it is to go back and rewrite legacy code – but multi-threading still raises a number of tough challenges. The Cadence Space-Based Router is a case in point. Previous posts in this series looked at the challenges involved...

  • Porting EDA Applications To Multicore -- Part 2

    As noted in part one of this blog series, porting the Encounter Digital Implementation System (EDI) to multicore platforms was a challenging task. That’s no less true for Cadence’s efforts to parallelize the Virtuoso Spectre Circuit Simulator, although the challenges were somewhat different...

  • Porting EDA Applications To Multicore -- Part 1

    The EDA industry is gearing up for what may be its largest retooling ever – retrofitting or rewriting applications to run on next-generation multicore platforms. An inside look at how Cadence ported the Encounter Digital Implementation System (EDI) to parallel processing illustrates some of the...

  • Video Demo: Spice 2.0 - The ABCs of APS

    Designers have had ubiquitous access to powerful SMP/multicore systems for years but no analog / mixed-signal solution that could fully leverage them. And when dealing with large designs, fastspice and the accuracy loss it induced was often the only recourse. APS represents a new era for spice simulators...
