Synopsys and TSMC Go Virtual with 28nm Reference Flow
Learn about the new reference flow for TSMC’s 28-nanometer (nm) process technology. With the introduction of virtual prototyping, project teams can develop software and tune the hardware architecture before silicon is available.
Faster Simulation Without More Hardware
How can design and verification engineers improve the simulation performance of modern high-performance CPU cores? AMD’s Neil McKenzie and Synopsys’ Vijay Akkaraju look at various techniques.
Virtual Prototyping for Software Developers
Virtual prototyping is becoming increasingly important to embedded software developers, engineers, managers and marketing teams. Learn what virtual prototyping is and how those affected by growing hardware-software complexity can use it to produce better software and systems, faster.
Accelerate Design by Exploring Early RTL and Constraints
RTL development involves lengthy iterations of synthesis and refinements to the RTL and constraints, a major risk to project schedules. Learn how DC Explorer helps designers reduce the time it takes to produce a better starting point for RTL synthesis.
