Design software is easier to use, delivers data faster

Designers of monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), radio-frequency printed circuit boards (RF PCBs) and modules will be the target audience for the V12 NI AWR Design Environment. V12 was previewed for the first time at International Microwave Symposium 2015 (IMS2015) in May 2015, creating significant interest. Feedback from early-access customers has been positive.

Cadence & Applied Materials to optimise the planarization process

Cadence Design Systems and Applied Materials have announced that they are collaborating on a development programme to optimise the Chemical-Mechanical Planarization (CMP) process through silicon characterisation and modelling for advanced-node designs at 14nm and below. The programme allows design teams to predict the impact of CMP on both functional yield and parametric yield, and for manufacturing teams to boost planarization performance, which is increasingly critical for advanced FinFET architectures.

IP solution supports RAS features for cloud computing SoCs

Synopsys has announced that it has extended its DesignWare IP solution for PCIe 4.0 to support RAS features to help designers ensure data integrity and increase data protection in cloud computing SoCs. The new RAS features increase system reliability by using parity and ECC data protection in conjunction with protocol-defined mechanisms to detect and correct errors in the datapath and RAMs. Event counters and statistics monitor system availability, while error injection and silicon debug capabilities help diagnose issues and validate system recovery.
