flash memory. It allows two USB devices to communicate without a host interface, making it ideal for system-to-system communication applications.
to the corner case bugs in simulation that cannot be imagined by the verification engineer, but is useful only if it is kept targeted or directed towards the functionality where we are wary of the existence of bugs. All designs should be verified in a silicon kind of a situation, whether it is FPGA, hardware accelerated or an emulation solution. At that time, O/S kind of a code that will eventually be what the customer will see of the design must be run on the design to ensure that the design will do fine in the cool looking colorful device that is sold in the market.
and very large design teams. Targeting the inherent shortcomings of predefined 'one-size-fits-all' standard cell libraries, Nangate provides a range of library optimization tools and solutions that can effectively optimize power consumption and maximize performance while minimizing chip area.
