High Speed SerDes Design and Simulation Webinar Replay from Mentor
SemiWiki

 

The article talks about the need for widely deployed high speed SerDes throughout electronic products with multiple case studies. He further divides the requirements into Performance, Accuracy, Capacity and Ease of Use (PACE). Mentor offers their Symphony Mixed Signal Platform, which is powered by AFS and can integrate with a wide range of industry standard HDL simulators. Symphony lets designers switch between analog, digital and behavioral models to trade off performance or accuracy, as needed. With AFS, runtimes are dramatically shortened to allow more simulations in a smaller period of time.

 

 

 

Power Management And Integration Of IPs In SoCs: Part 2
SemiEngineering

 

 

In this article, the author throws lights on IP integration and verification techniques for hard macro IP. The power intent (or UPF) for any hard macro contains all kinds of important information: internal-external or driver-receiver supplies, related supplies for the IP boundary IO ports, isolation cells, level-shifters, repeater cells, and modes of power states and/or voltage values. The author further identifies and resolves the fundamental problems of integrating, hardening, and verifying soft and hard macros in larger systems, from a power aware design and verification perspective.

Keeping Your Linux Device Secure – Mentor
EEJournal

 

In this article, the author explains how you can confidently deliver your unique value, utilizing an embedded platform running Linux, all while guaranteeing security for your deployed devices. SELinux is a security module that enables MAC for Linux and enforces the separation of data. The importance of Discretionary access control (DAC) and Mandatory access control (MAC) is explained in detail and how users can modify their access permissions and more. SELinux is a security module that enables MAC for Linux and enforces the separation of data.

 

 

How to use runtime monitoring for automotive functional safety
TechDesignForum

 

In this article, the author explains how to use runtime monitoring for automotive functional safety. The need for regular in-line monitoring of automotive electronic systems will continue to grow as the amount and complexity of safety-critical functions continue to expand. Functional safety relies on so-called safety mechanisms within the design that monitor and check the correct functional operation of the design while it is in use. The ability of these safety mechanisms to cover potential faults, both latent and transient, determines the overall diagnostics coverage of the design. The author talks in length about the system level test architecture for Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) and more.
