The IBM 801, the RISC You've Never Heard of
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…
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…
I keep reading accounts in the media and in the technical press (and YouTube) that misinterpret what RISC-V is. So today…

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...
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.

Spectre Tech Tips: Dynamic Power Density Circuit Check
To ensure an improved reliability and lifetime of devices, the circuit designers need to optimize the power consumption of the devices. This blog introduces a new dynamic check that you can use to identify the devices with large power density values.
NTHU Makes a Human-Like Robot Arm with Stratus HLS and Innovus
When it comes to jobs like lifting and manufacturing, robots can be sturdy and reliable machines, but what about for tasks like cooking and cleaning? Or even nursing and rehabilitation? Enter National Tsing Hua University’s (NTHU) dual-armed r...
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...
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...
Knowledge Booster Training Bytes - Virtuoso Pin-To-Trunk Routing
This blog helps in demonstrating the use of Pin to trunk routing style which helps in enhancing the layout experience.
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.
A Renewed Career through the Returnship Program
Depending on the circumstances, there are times in our lives when we have to step away from our work. Rejoining the workforce is not always easy, especially when taking a long break in the high-tech field. The Cadence Returnship Program provides a me...
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.
USB4 Interoperability with Thunderbolt™︎ 3 (TBT3) Systems
One of the key goals for USB4 is to retain compatibility with the existing ecosystem of USB3.2, USB 2.0 and Thunderbolt products, and the resulting connection scales to the best mutual capability of the devices being connected. USB4 is designed to work with older versions of USB and Thunderbolt . USB4 Fabric support high throughput interconnects of 10 Gbps (for Gen 2) and 20 Gbps (for Gen 3) and supports Thunderbolt 3…
