    Reducing PCI Express 3.0 “fuzz” with multi-tap filters
    Published. November 12, 2012

    Modern PHYs include transmitters which implement multi-tap FIR filters (e.g. three taps for PCIe3) and receivers which typically implement both linear equalizers and DFEs. The purpose of all of this equalization capability is to compensate for the frequency dependent attenuation of the channel.  An example of a channel is shown in the figure above.  A [...]...

    What Does it Take to Migrate from e to UVMe?
    Published. September 5, 2012

    So you are developing your verification environment in e, and like everyone else, you've been hearing a lot of buzz surrounding UVM (Universal Verification Methodology). Maybe you would also like to give it a try. The first question that pops in your mind is, "What would it take to migrate from e to UVM e?"Well, this is a bit of a trick question. The short answer is that if you've adopted eRM in the past, migration to UVM e will only take a few minutes. If your environment is not...

    Cadence Video Demonstrates PCIe Gen3 IP Silicon Performance
    Published. August 6, 2012

    It is not often that an IP provider gets to showcase their IP performance in a real product demo. Those laurels usually end up going to the end product that uses the IP. But a recent Cadence video features our PCI Express (PCIe) Gen 3 core running flawlessly in silicon in a real system. We thought we would raise some eyebrows since, as of today, there are very few products in the market that utilize the full power of the PCIe Gen3 protocol, let alone those that have been designed using a commercial...

    Published. June 1, 2012

    As the EDA industry and its customers are preparing for the yearly show down at the Design Automation Conference (DAC), it is good to review what I said in the past. Well, two years ago I wrote a blog called "Maybe This Time" (inspired by the Sally Bowles song in Cabaret, I am a Musical Geek after all), in which I outlined the top five reasons why DAC 2012 will be the DAC of System-Level Design. Being in system-level design and verification is truly like being the Energizer Bunny....
