Best of “Real Talk”, Q4 Summary and Latest Videos

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Real Intent has had an exciting 2014!  In the last few months we have announced a new release of Meridian CDC , new distribution partners in Taiwan and India, and seen many of you at trade shows in Silicon Valley, China, Israel, Japan, Germany and the United Kingdom.  Our YouTube video channel keeps you up to date on all the latest developments at Real Intent, with our most recent on the New 2014 Release of Meridian CDC Meets Challenge of Billion-gate SoCs.  I also discussed “Beer, New Meridian CDC, and Arnold Schwarzenegger?! ” with Sean O’kane of ChipEstimate in an ARM TechCon video interview.

There have been over 50 postings on the Real Talk blog this year, and I have selected the most popular ones read by the EDACafe audience. Here are the top five:

Redefining Chip Complexity in the SoC Era
CDC Verification of Fast-to-Slow Clocks (a three part series)
Fundamentals of Clock Domain Crossing Verification: (a four part series)
Ascent Lint Rule of the Month: ARITH_CONTEXT
Engineers Have Spoken: Design And Verification Survey Results

As you can see clock-domain crossing (CDC) remains a very hot topic. Look for more postings on this sign-off requirement in the coming year.

Happy Holidays!

P2415 – New IEEE Power Standard for Unified Hardware Abstraction

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

The IEEE announced in September that is was launching working a on a new power standard called P2415. This blog gives the background for this new effort.

The current low power design and verification standard (IEEE 1801-2013 and IEEE P1801) is focused on the voltage distribution structure in design at Register Transfer Level (RTL) description and below. It has minimal abstraction for time (having only an interval function for modeling clock frequency), but depends on other hardware oriented standards to abstract events, scenarios, clock trees, etc. which are required for energy proportional design, verification, modeling and management of electronic systems. The necessary abstractions of hardware, as well as layers and interfaces in software are not yet defined by any existing standards. (more…)
