Fed up with ECOing your way out of test problems? You might want to register for this webinar. When you’re building monster SoC FPGAs, you have all the same problems you have with any other SoC. That includes getting to very high test coverage as quickly as you can with a design targeted to the most advanced processes. We’re not just talking the basic stuck-at ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the hottest mega-trends in technology – and for good reason , IoT deals with all the components of what we consider web 3.0 including Big Data Analytics, Cloud Computing and Mobile Computing.

Our previous Blue Pearl post looked at the breadth of contextual visualization capability in the GUI to speed up debug. Two other important aspects of the ASIC & FPGA pre-synthesis workflow are automating analysis with scripts and managing the stream of messages produced. Let’s look at these aspects ...

I’ve mentioned many times what has become a very common theme in SoC and system verification - it has to be driven by the software because any concept of exhaustively verifying “everything” is neither feasible nor meaningful. Emulation has become a critical component of this flow in validating ...

Working at Intel as a circuit designer I clearly remember how there were three distinct groups: Process Development, CAD and Circuit Design. Each of the groups sat in a different part of the building in Aloha Oregon, we had different job titles, different degrees, spoke with different acronyms and yet we all had to work together somehow to ensure success for our company. There is one company that does span all three of these groups ...

Samsung Foundry had an intimate gathering recently for 200 customers and partners that I missed, but I know several people who attended. This event was a precursor to #53DAC where Samsung has the largest foundry presence. I was able to clarify what I had heard via a phone call with Kelvin Low so here is my version ...

We in Semiwiki are writing about FD-SOI since 2012, describing all the benefits offered by the technology in term of power consumption, price per performance compared with FinFET, etc. Let me assess again that I am fully convinced that FD-SOI is a very smart and efficient way to escape ...

Everyone knows that verification is hard and is consuming an increasing percentage of verification time and effort. And everyone should know that system-level verification (SoC plus at least some software and maybe models for other components on a board) ...

Formal verification can provide a large productivity gain in discovering, analyzing, and debugging complex problems buried deep in a design, which may be suspected but not clearly visible or identifiable by other verification methods. However, use of formal verification methods hasn’t been common due to its ...

Many years ago when I worked for Ed Staiano at Motorola, I learned never to use the word “comfortable” in a career context. I’m comfortable being with family and friends. This new high-back chair I sit in at my new faux-cocobolo desk ...

When you’re designing a hardware solution to plug into what is arguably the most complex system of all – the Internet – you can’t get away with a little fake traffic to test whether your box is going to do all the right things at the right performance.

A Google search for “Internet of Things” term reveals over 280,000,000 results, thanks to the media making the connection between the smart home, wearable devices, and the connected automobile, IoT has begun to become part of the popular parlance. But that’s not the complete picture, according to Gartner's Nick Jones, vice president and distinguished analyst "The IoT demands an extensive ...

The Semiconductor Wiki Project
Introduction
The SemiWiki Project, the premier semiconductor question and answer site, is a growing online community of 50,000+ professionals involved with the semiconductor design and manufacturing ecosystem. 

The SemiWiki mission statement: FOR THE GREATER GOOD OF THE SEMICONDUCTOR DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING ECOSYSTEM!

As a SemiWiki Member you may adopt a screen name to protect your identity but you must register with real names and the company you work for. Only semiconductor professionals qualify as SemiWiki Members and all Member information will be held in the strictest confidence.

Today everything and everyone is connected and crowd sourced. In fact, all social media, from blogs, to forums, and wikis have a profound impact on how people communicate, search for information, and make decisions. For vendors, social media is no longer an experiment or a moonlighting function. Social media is now an integral part of corporate communications.

SemiWiki has a strict NO SHILLS policy. EDA/IP/Foundry employees must properly identify themselves if they are going to answer questions, promote products or the company they work for. This level of security ensures the quality of the content.

While Google, Yahoo, Bing, and other search engines will continue to play an important role in social media, KNOWLEDGE SHARING sites like SemiWiki are the new search. The role of user generated content has changed the way information is exchanged. In contrast to the SALES experience offered by EDA/IP portals, vendor websites, and webinars, SemiWiki brings technology and technologists closer together than ever before, providing in-demand content and facilitating peer-to-peer communications using Web 2.0 technologies.

Forums and wikis will be co-moderated by SemiWiki Bloggers. SemiWiki Bloggers include industry professionals: Daniel NenniPaul McLellanDaniel PayneEric Esteve, and Ed McKernan.

Who Wants an iPad2? 

We still have some SemiWiki iPad2s to give away:
  1. Guest blog on SemiWiki and you may get an iPad2
  2. Every 1,000th person who registers on SemiWiki gets an iPad2. Just put iPad2 in the referrer section when registering.
Thank you again for your support!

5 things you should know about SemiWiki:
  1. SemiWiki is global. Your experience here will be from around the world with an incredible amount of information at your fingertips. Make sure you connect and interact, make sure you engage at all levels.
  2. Build relationships and network. You can truly connect here with people who you have not met. Make friends and create a support system for your professional life.
  3. Take the good and the bad. Distinguish between fact and opinion, objective and subjective. People will either like or dislike your posts and there is something to be learned from both.
  4. Don’t be evil. Top influencers will have one thing in common, they use their influence for the greater good.
