  • Wrapping Up 2009 With Some Reflections

    As many of my customers mentioned and no surprise, 2009 was a tough year.

  • New White Paper: Routing Congestion De-Mystified

    Even though routing congestion sounds like a physical design problem, it can cause chip projects to miss schedules, miss performance targets, or result in a larger die size.
