Best of the Web: November 2nd 2012
My favorite for the week is:
Cadence’s Frank Schirrmeister talks about a CDN presentation that discussed “How many cycles are needed to verify ARM’s big.LITTLE on Palladium XP?” and concludes that no one technology can do it all.
From within the network:
Carbon’s Andy Ladd provides some interesting case studies on the EDA Designline that show how people are successfully deploying virtual prototyping.
Max is getting all excited about defense grade programmable devices over on All Programmable Planet and tries to explain the extra steps a manufacturer has to go through.
And some other great entries include:
Mike Jensen from Mentor asks the question about how expertise can be passed on from one generation of engineers to the next and equates it to a concert given by a usic teacher and her students in “Preserving Expertise”
J VanDomelen from Mentor continue to look at some space history and talks about “Space Shuttle Endeavour - the Phoenix”
provides some information about “Endevour” including where the name came from.
and talks about Endeavor’s last journey in “Tight Squeeze”
Mentor’s John Day talks about the problems overcome in WiFi that will enable it to displace Bluetooth in “More Wi-Fi coming to cars”
Cadence’s Richard Goering reports on a panel held at their Low Power Technology Summit in which he concludes that “Low Power Design Needs System-Level Boost”
Richard also reports on an ARM TechCon presentation titled “Inside Story of a 14nm FinFET Tapeout” that talks about Cadence’s experiences associated with fabricating an ARM Cortex-M0 processor using IBM's FinFET process technology.
Dennis Brophy asks “Ready for 100 billion “things” connected by the Internet?” and talks about an IEEE workshop on the subject.
