Solution enables successful ASIC tapeout

Solution enables successful ASIC tapeout
In order to complete a successful ASIC design tapeout, Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage used the Cadence Genus Synthesis Solution. The solution, used with the CPF-based low-power flow, enabled Toshiba to reduce logic synthesis runtime by two times versus its previous logic synthesis solution. Toshiba also experienced a 5.7% leakage power reduction for a standard cell portion during a trial evaluation of the Genus Synthesis Solution’s physical optimisation flow, which reduced low Vth cell usage while maintaining timing and area.

IoT OS now available on Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3

IoT OS now available on Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3
The company behind Ubuntu, Canonical, has announced that its IoT OS, Ubuntu Core, is available on the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 - the general-purpose-compute product from the Raspberry Pi Foundation. The Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 (CM3), announced in January 2017, is a micro-version of the Raspberry Pi 3 intended to provide a simple, cost optimised single board computer. As the CM3 can be easily slotted in and out of any device with a standard, low-cost DDR2 SODIMM connector it provides an easy path for device creation, upgrading, or maintenance.
