Resolve Congestion and Physical Design Challenges Using Cadence Support and RAKs
Physical design challenges such as congestion, routing, on-chip variation (OCV), and unconstrained paths are significant issues in achieving the design goals. Managing the routing congestion and physical design challenges with the least amount of effort is a big problem for physical design engineers. Further, the usage of advanced nodes and increasing functionality over SoC is leading to rising complexity and conflicting…
Digital Twins: Six Steps to Address Data Center Thermal Challenges
Data center digital twins address complex data center design challenges by virtualizing design and optimization
In a recent post, RISC-V Tutorial, I wrote about the history of RISC-V. The "V" is the Roman numeral for five. Hence, this is pronounced "risk five." With a five in the name like that, the obvious question is, "What were RISC...
30th Anniversary of Glengarry Glen Ross
Yesterday is the 30th anniversary of the release of the movie Glengarry Glen Ross. If you work in sales, you have almost certainly seen it. The movie was a critical success but didn't do well at the box office, probably because it is pretty depr...
'Tweak' Your Grid! That's All It Needs
'Tweak' is a handy command that is part of your toolkit. It's not something you're likely to use every day, but it'll be there when you need it. It is a small feature that can make a major difference between a grid and a bunch of points on which you can't compute an accurate or converged CFD solution.

When AI Rules the World, by Handel Jones
I first met Handel Jones in the early 1980s, I think. I was at VLSI Technology, and this Welsh guy showed up and presented some results from looking at our order book. We, along with LSI Logic, had pretty much invented ASIC and had a lot of...
On-Demand Webinar - Simulation of Hydraulic Turbines with Fidelity CFD
In this webinar, we introduce you to Fidelity Flow and its pressure-based solver (formerly known as Omnis Open-PBS), demonstrating its advantages for simulating hydro turbines. Fidelity Flow is an easy-to-use multiphysics solver that provides fast and accurate results, including for unsteady simulations. We use the GAMM Turbine as a test case.
Bluetoooth LE Audio, Hearing Aids, and Mindtree
You might think that hearing aids are a bit of a sleepy backwater. Indeed, the only time I can remember coming across them in my job at Cadence was at a CadenceLIVE Europe presentation that I never blogged about, or if I did, it was such a passing re...

Heterogeneous Integration (HI) vs System on Chip (SoC) – What’s the Difference?
Heterogeneous integration (HI) is a new way to design chips that aims to counter the growing expense and complexity of system-on-chip (SoC) design by taking a more modular approach using advanced packaging technology.
I keep reading accounts in the media and in the technical press (and YouTube) that misinterpret what RISC-V is. So today's post is going to explain that.
Let's get the big thing out of the way; RISC-V is NOT a processor. I'll say that again to emphas...
On-Demand Webinar - Modeling Unsteadiness with the Non-Linear Harmonic Method
Learn how to model unsteadiness in Turbomachinery with high accuracy achieving 100 to 1000 times faster simulations compared to full-unsteady methods.
In this webinar we cover the basics of the Non-Linear Harmonics (NLH) method, outline how the essential characteristics of flow periodicity are used as a tool, and demonstrate the accuracy and effectiveness of NLH through a variety of test cases.

Fidelity Pointwise Remedy Drawbacks Working with Analytic and Discrete Geometry Types
Most engineers are of the view that all mesh generators use an underlying geometry that is discrete in nature, but in fact, Fidelity Pointwise can import and mesh both analytic and discrete geometry. There are several pros and cons to using both analytic and discrete geometries.
