By bringing together the right process management, design entry, simulation and synthesis tools, engineers now can build a methodology that supports mixed schematic and language-based design for field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).
Productized IP: more than pipe dream
News & Analysis  
3/21/2000   Post a comment
The economic and engineering justifications for leveraging an intellectual-property (IP) business model have not changed in the last five years-the point at which the concept came to the forefront of electronics design.
Hierarchical design flows recognized
News & Analysis  
3/21/2000   Post a comment
The move to system-on-chip (SoC) designs is expected to dramatically increase chip sizes from the already complex 10 million to 20 million transistors to more than 100 million transistors in fewer than five years.
Multiple processors vie for tight space

Where does analog live in a mixed-signal world?
News & Analysis  
3/12/2000   Post a comment
The term "mixed-signal," brandished like a brand name, often refers to a range of products that have little to do with analog signal-processing technology or skills. Conversely, the target market for an analog tool set can seem larger if its developers call it a mixed-signal tool. In this installment of the Scarlet A, Steve Ohr defines some differences among mixed-signal, mixed analog-digital and mixed-technology ICs. More than splitting hairs, these differences can often predict how quickly a n
