low-power IP design flow-minAdopting a unified RTL low-power methodology has helped ARM improve both RTL design efficiency and meet IP power goals. Learn how to get power-efficient RTL IP in the three-step process outlined in this article.

 
 

Five Automotive Megatrends
Semiconductor Engineering
Technology-Challenges-Mentor-AutomotiveAutomotive megatrends like autonomous driving, electric vehicles, and the Smart City are being driven by industry technology convergence. Andrew Macleod comments on these megatrends and their alignment with core technologies and investment areas of the new automotive supply chain.

 
 

A New Path for Analog Design Constraints Verification
Tech Design Forum
Fig2cAnalogDesignConstraintsAnalog circuitry is sensitive to technology and environmental impacts. Accurate verification of explicitly-defined design constraints is crucial to ensure desired reliability and performance. Dina Medhat explains a new path for analog design constraints verification.

 
 

Five Pitfalls in PCIe-Based NVMe Controller Verification
Semiconductor Engineering
fig-1-controller-queuesThis article explains how the NVMe Questa Verification IP (QVIP) sequence library makes it easy to verify problematic scenarios in PCIe based NVMe controllers, accelerating verification cycles. Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) is a high-performance, low-latency controller interface designed to address the needs of enterprise and client systems that utilize PCI Express-based solid-state storage.

 
 

Motors and Mechatronic Systems: Analog Circuits and Beyond!
Planet Analog
mentor graphics systemvisionAnalog plays a key role in systems that combine electrical and mechanical (mechatronic) elements. That’s why an effective design process must include a holistic view of these two domains. Take a look at several examples of mechatronic systems that can by modeled and simulated in SystemVision Cloud, a free online schematic capture and simulation platform.
