Taking Control of Constraints Verification

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

This article was originally published on TechDesignForums and is reproduced here by permission.

Constraints are a vital part of IC design, defining, among other things, the timing with which signals move through a chip’s logic and hence how fast the device should perform. Yet despite their key role, the management and verification of constraints’ quality, completeness, consistency and fidelity to the designer’s intent is an evolving art.

ARM Fueling the SoC Revolution and Changing Verification Sign-off

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

ARM TechCon was in Santa Clara this week and Real Intent was exhibiting at the event.  TechCon was enjoying its 10th anniversary and ARM was celebrating the fact that it is at the center of the System-on-Chip (SoC) revolution.

The SoC ecosystem spans the gamut of designs from high-end servers to low-power mobile consumer segments. A large and heterogeneous set of players (foundries, IP vendors, SoC integrators, etc.) has a stake in fostering the success of the ecosystem model. While the integrated device manufacturer (IDM) model has undeniable value in terms of bringing to bear large resources in tackling technology barriers, one could argue that the rapid-fire smartphone revolution we have experienced in the last five years owes in large part to the broad-based innovation enabled by the SoC ecosystem model. How are the changing dynamics of SoCs driving changes in verification requirements, tools and flows and thereby changing the timing sign-off paradigm?
