DVCon 2014: Standards on Display

Posted by Dennis Brophy

Dennis Brophy One of the nice things about DVCon is the update one can get from the developers of IEEE and Accellera standards.  And this year’s DVCon is no exception.  The four days of DVCon begin and end with tutorials that cover updates to popular standards like UVM, UPF, SystemC and more.  For our part, Mentor Graphics is participating in the development and delivery of these updates with our peers. I have written … Read More

Harry Foster Clocking and Power Trends In Part 2 of this series of blogs, I continued the discussion focused on design trends (click here) as identified by the 2012 Wilson Research Group Functional Verification Study (click here). In this blog, I continue presenting the study findings related to design trends, with a focus on clocking and power trends. Independent Asynchronous Clock Domains Figure 1 shows the percentage … Read More

Dennis Brophy Power Aware Verification Course Modules Released I guess I could continue the puns on the low-power theme as a few readers may get a charge out of it.  And there is a reason I seem to gravitate to puns from the start.  The first chair of the IEEE 1801 committee and I exchanged puns one time that resulted in him shipping me a Pun DVD that recorded a pun contest in which one person and another tried to … Read More

IEEE Approves New Low Power Standard

Posted by Dennis Brophy

Dennis Brophy IEEE 1801™-2013 Enters Pre-Publish Phase The completion and approval of electronic design automation standards has seemed to be the order of the day for several months now.  Added to this list is the IEEE Standards Association (SA) approval of their newly revised low power standard (IEEE 1801™-2013).  The IEEE SA’s Review Committee (RevCom) unanimously recommended approval and that was confirmed by … Read More
