  • TSMC Views R&D As Ticket Out Of Recession

    What do you do if your revenues decline nearly 60 percent in the space of two quarters? If you’re TSMC, you hire more R&D people, expand your focus beyond conventional SoCs, and work to innovate your way out of the recession. TSMC’s “can do” attitude was reflected Tuesday...

  • A Qualcomm Perspective on 3D ICs

    3D integration is a promising new technology that can potentially save space and power by stacking die in 3 dimensions. I recently spoke with Riko Radojcic, Qualcomm design lead for TSS (Through Silicon Stacking – Qualcomm’s term for 3D ICs), about how Qualcomm is deploying this technology...

  • Whatever Happened to Statistical Timing?

    Several years ago, there was a lot of publicity about statistical timing analysis, which was thought by some to be the “next big thing” in IC design. Then things got quiet. But as process nodes head into the 45 nm and below territory, statistical static timing analysis (SSTA) may once again...

  • Momentum Grows for IP Power Modeling Standard

    With no standard way to represent power consumption for silicon IP, early IC power estimation can be difficult. But help may be on the way, as the SPIRIT Consortium and its members, including Cadence, discuss possible approaches to IP power modeling. I first became aware of this problem at a seminar...

  • What Cadence Has Learned About SaaS

    Software as a Service (SaaS) for EDA applications has been a hot topic lately, but most of the discussion has been theoretical. Cadence Design Systems’ implementation of SaaS brings some practical experience to the discussion. Software as a Service is a concept in which applications are hosted...

  • High-Level Synthesis Expands Its Mission

    High-level synthesis (HLS) was originally used by consumer products companies who wanted to get to RTL really, really fast. But now its appeal is broadening, and HLS is serving other important purposes, including architectural exploration, faster verification, and IP reuse. First, let’s define...

  • There's Still Life at 130 nm and Above

    Previously unpublished data from ChipEstimate.com suggests that design activity at the 130 nm and 180 nm process nodes remains very strong, despite a recent upsurge in interest in 65 nm. This data has some interesting implications for EDA, silicon IP, and foundry providers, as well as IC design teams...

  • Hot Topics List For Industry Insights Blog

    Blogs are, by their nature, unpredictable – they cover developments that can’t be anticipated in advance. With sites like this, which will solicit outside content, you never know exactly what will show up. However, there are some topics that may be worth exploring in the Industry Insights...

  • Embedded Software Providers Confront Low Power Design

    I’ve had a nagging question at the last few Embedded Systems Conferences I’ve attended. Why isn’t anyone here – aside from a few silicon vendors – talking about low power design? If you go to any hardware design conference, low-power design will be a major theme, if not...

  • Why The Reports of EDA's Demise Are Greatly Exaggerated - Part 2

    Part one of this blog looked at what I think are three questionable claims about the EDA industry – that electronics OEMs are going back to internal tool development, that foundries will buy EDA vendors, and that designers aren’t moving to lower process nodes. But whatever the truth of those...
