Lucio on EDA Investment

Kaufmann Award Winner Shares His Thoughts

by Bryon Moyer

So you’ve been toiling away in the depths of the EDA world and you are struck by an idea of monumental brilliance and potential. You drop what you’re doing and go off into a cave for a while to flesh it out to the point where you can solicit a hearty investment by a forward-thinking manager of an aggressive investment fund.

What are your chances?

It certainly won’t come as a surprise that you’ve got more than one roadblock to get by. It’s not an easy investment environment out there – for high tech in general (at least for anything you can actually put your hands on). Even tougher for EDA.  Read More

How to create mushroom designs on an oscilloscope signal detector using sound

Posted on 12/18/14 at 4:06 AM by HhindieR

Supply and demand go hand in hand. Where demand exists, supply will meet it. Some people demand they have dinosaur fossils, which leads to the interesting underworld of fossil smuggling. One of the more significant examples in recent memory is the case of…

Not sure it's a good analogy (the "road" thing). The way we write software (C/C++) is very dependent on how the machines work, so there's a lot of interdependency that shouldn't be there in the "stack". The "top" of the current stack is reminding me of ho…

Physically Aware Synthesis Techniques to Lower Power, Improve Timing, Congestion & Correlation

Synthesis is the single most important step in creating a high-quality implementation of our design. But, we can't expect our synthesis tool to produce the best results without considering the very important effects of routing delay introduced by placement and routing. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton talks with David Stratman of Cadence about how to apply physically-aware synthesis techniques to improve the overall quality of your design.

GLOBALFOUNDRIES RFCMOS Solutions and Catena WiFi Solutions

In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia Dalton chats with Fayyaz Singaporewala (GLOBALFOUNDRIES) and Mats Carlsson (Catena) about how to get that scary RF portion of your next design done in a snap.

The Power of Tcl in PlanAhead

In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia chats with Tori Darien from Xilinx about using Tcl in Xilinx’s PlanAhead tool for FPGA design. Amelia throws her some examples, and Tori walks us through how to work them using PlanAhead’s Tcl interface.
