Freescale demonstrates first-pass Kinetis L silicon at Design West (The conference formerly known as the Embedded Systems Conference)
Two weeks ago, ARM introduced its new low-end Cortex-M0+ 32-bit processor core. At the same time, Freescale announced that it was planning on introducing a new line of Kinetis “L” low-power microcontrollers based on the ARM Cortex-M0+ processor. (See “How … Continue reading
ISQED: Why does a trailing-edge digital IC process = a leading-edge analog IC process? TI’s Dr. Venu Menon lays bare the secrets of the analog IC business
“What can you do with bits?” asked Dr. Venu Menon, VP of Analog Technology Development at Texas Instruments at the beginning of his keynote talk at last week’s ISQED. Then he answered his own question: “Nothing without analog,” because analog … Continue reading
As the size and complexity of mixed-signal designs have grown, so has the verification task. Designers face the challenging task of verifying complex power, performance, and functionality specifications as well as validating analog and digital interactions over a broad range … Continue reading
Cadence collaboration produces TSMC Reference Flow 12.0 and Analog-Mixed-Signal (AMS) Reference Flow v2.0 for 28nm including ESL and 3D TSV DFT support
