The "Missing Link" of SoC DesignPlatform and Structured ASICs Design How-To 6/3/2004 Post a comment Are ASIC designs too expensive? Does FPGA performance fall short of specifications? Consider a structured or platform ASIC implementation for your next mid-performance, mid-volume chip. Over the past year, a different type of chip implementation has been garnering a lot of attention from IC vendors and designers alike. Jim Lipman introduces this new chip implementation known as Structured ASICs or Platform ASICs (SA/PA).
Opinion: Your logic analyzer can probe those forgotten signals! Blog 6/2/2004 Post a comment Logic analysis is a powerful tool. However, the most powerful logic analyzer is useless without a sound probing connection to a system under test. If you approach the problem carefully, you'll find that you can even probe those "forgotten" signals. From eeProductCenter's Test and Measurement section, Agilent Technologies' engineers offer these pointers.
April's global chip sales up 36.7% News & Analysis 6/2/2004 Post a comment The three-month average of global semiconductor sales rose to $16.94 billion in April, a sequential increase of 4.1 percent from the $16.275 billion reported in March and a 36.7 percent increase from April 2003. From London, Peter Clarke filed this report.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
