Most programmers can read a code snippet and spot errors, given enough hours in the day, sufficient caffeine, and the right lens prescription. As lines of code have run rampant, with more unfamiliar third-party code in the mix, interprocedural and data flow issues become more important – and harder to spot. Verification IP particularly resembles that third-party code remark: vendors supplying UVM for test is now widely-accepted practice. Debugging a large testbench environment with a lot of third-party UVM can become a rather hilatious effort if the only view available is a text error message, likely launched somewhere in the middle of potentially foreign code not being fed something it expects. Tracking down dependencies in the midst of the model from just the source code view is possible, but slow going. The latest release of Aldec Riviera-PRO 2014.02 (http://www.aldec.com/en/company/news/2014-03-05/215) brings a powerful new feature to testbench debugging: UVM Graph.

Wearables are clearly one of the hot areas of the Internet of Things (IoT). A big part of that market is sensors of one sort or another. Andes low power microprocessors are a good fit for this market which requires both 32 bit performance and ultra low power. Performance is needed since IoT by definition has internet access in some way (perhaps piggy backing on your phone or wireless hub) which requires enough performance to run a network stack. Low power is required since many IoT applications need to last for a very long time and, perhaps, never have their battery replaced.Intelligent sensors are the fusion of a microprocessor, sensor, and communications interface into a single physical unit. Fueled by the automotive, wearables, medical equipment, and industrial automation markets, innovative new intelligent sensors are expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.8% from 2012-2018 with sales to reach $6.9 billion
10390My wife and I drove to Southern California last week in search of information on the wearable computing market. After stops in Irvine, San Diego, and some play time in La Jolla we returned in time for the CASPA Symposium: "The Wearable Future: Moving Beyond the Hype; the Search for the Holy Grail and Practical Use Cases". CASPA (http://www.caspa.com/home) is the Chinese American Semiconductor Professionals Association and their Spring Symposium was at the Intel HQ Auditorium in Santa Clara with a standing room only crowd.The big attraction was the keynote Dr. Reza Kazerounian, SVP & GM, Microcontroller Business Unit of Atmel. I originally ran across his name during my research for the “Brief History of STmicroelectronics” piece I did last week as he was CEO of ST Americas from 2000 to 2009. It was truly an honor to hear Dr. Reza Kazerounian speak.The Internet of Things (IoT) is opening up

The LETI and STMicro have demonstrated a DSP that can hit 500 MHz while pulling just 460mV – that’s ten times better than anything the industry’s seen so far. Implemented on a 28nm FD-SOI technology, with ultra thin forward body biasing (UTFBB) capability (used to decrease Vth), this DSP can also be exercised at higher voltage when required by the application, then hit 2.6 GHz at Vdd = 1.3 V, equivalent to a similar device implemented on a 22nm Tri-gate technology (2.5 GHz at 1.1 V). But, for any mobile application, delivering 500 Mops at 460 mV is a big achievement: according with Fabien Clermidy, head of Digital Design and Architecture at Leti, this could mean extending your battery life by about another 30% for typical usages. Leti and ST showed the FD-SOI DSP at ISSCC (http://isscc.org/) – the IEEE’s International Solid-State Circuits Conference (February 2014), which is widely considered
