  • Better Fix That Leak

    Things that leak are bad. If your hot water tank leaks, you might ruin your basement. If your furnace leaks, you might get blown up. And if your device leaks, you might not be able to sell your products in the EU. Ok, maybe the later isn’t as bad as being blown up, but it will probably have more...

  • Actually, It Is Easy Being Green

    Ok, I’ll admit it, I’m a bit of a leadfoot. I like to go fast, especially off stop lights. Maybe it is the competitive streak in me, but I love to be the first off a light. Or maybe it is just me showing the BMW drivers that my Hyundai can go just as fast. I also do a lot of traveling, and...

  • It's Not Easy Being Green

    Today we at Cadence launched a "green campaign". It may sound like we're late to the "green" party, but w e’ve had the technology and solutions for green design in-place for a few years now. This campaign is about awareness - it is clear that the electronics industry still...

  • Pretty Scary, Huh Kids?

    In honor of Halloween, here are some horror stories about low power bugs. These are real bugs at real customers that would have led to real dead chips. Horror story #1: It was a dark and stormy night… Ok, it was around lunch time. But a customer had just spent three weeks coding a UPF file to...

  • The History of CPF

    I’ve shied away from getting into the power format wars – honestly, the whole question kind of bores me. I think everyone can agree that specifying your power intent in a single file that drives all the tools in the flow is a good thing. The specifics of which create_power_domain is used...

  • Power Management for Test: A Means of Addressing False Failures

    Engineering teams are tracing test failures back to IR/voltage drop during test mode. These false failures are impacting yield, profitability. We consider this to be a power management issue for test mode and should be approached as early as front-end design and carried through ATPG and pattern/vector...

  • Consider the system

    This may be slightly outside the scope of logic design, but since reducing power consumption is something that we are all concerned with, I thought this was interesting. Check out the power consumption of various electronic products, in-use, “off”, and idle: Nintendo Wii Microsoft Xbox 360...

  • Coarse PSO and the new Apple MacBook

    After a long day, I like to browse around the web, looking for interesting stories. Ok, yes, I’m a geek (as my daughter continues to remind me, accompanied by a roll of her eyes). But I found this story about the new MacBook too interesting to pass up. I agree with Seth that the most interesting...

  • Low Power: Free Stuff is Good Stuff

    Being both old and an engineer, I’m cheap. I really like free stuff. So, here are a few things you might find useful. And free. Si2 has just recently approved Common Power Format (CPF) v1.1. This represents the third generation CPF standard, incorporating lessons and requirements learned over the...

  • Blogs: What interests you? What do you want to read about?

    With the new blogging opportunities at Cadence, is there anything you'd like to read more about for frontend design? Stuff like: Early chip-planning/prototyping, synthesis (including physical-synthesis), formal verication, DFT, frontend methodologies, etc. My hope is for the blog topics to be informative...
