Automotive IC Design Drives Simulation Innovation
Hybrid automotive IC design must function in a very harsh environment for 10+ years. STMicroelectronics and Mentor Graphics pioneered a new analog/mixed-signal simulation approach.
USB – Class Drivers
USB is a straightforward technology for most users to utilize, but its deployment in devices can be quite challenging. Colin Walls clears up confusion regarding USB Class Drivers.
Market Trends Motivate a Shift-Left in Functional Verification
Emulation is being adopted in networking, storage, mobile multimedia, and automotive IC design reflecting an overall shift-left in functional verification. A shift-left greatly reduces the risk of designing very large systems and ICs. Mentor Graphics Veloce and Veloce Apps are making this shift-left a reality.
