Addressing Design Complexity in System Control Architecture

Posted 05/31/2022 by Peiju Chiang

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted industries and economies across the globe, pushing a large portion of formerly office-based workforces into remote-work setups. A large segment of the workforce becoming decentralized put immense pressure on servers, datacenters, networks, and communication systems, at large. In America, for example, 71% of workers doing their jobs from home all or most of the time put a strain on connectivity and created a more reliance on services in the cloud, as well as 5G and...

Anti-Fragile Security and Post Quantum Crypto Readiness

Posted 03/08/2022 by Eric Sivertson

The world has become in many ways more fragile, and a quick look into recent Supply Chain issues highlights this very well. The global growth of interdependencies and complexities of enterprises has introduced fragility into many cyber-systems. Cybersecurity has been top of mind for years across all markets and industries, but we’ve reached an inflection point. Cyberattacks have continued to grow in velocity and veracity as bad actors find new invasive ways to penetrate systems and take ad...

FPGA Design Constraints – Performance and Analysis to Achieve Design and Timing Closure

FPGA design constraints - performance and analysis to achieve design and timing closure

Posted 12/15/2021 by Roger Do, Senior Product Manager, Design Tools, Lattice Semiconductor

Traditionally, FPGA design was simple. Designers set a basic clock constraint that was propagated across the chip. But now, FPGA designs have become much more complex. There are multiple clocks, and relationships between those clocks. There may be clock domain crossings that need to be accounted for. So, FPGA design tools today must feature much greater analysis capabilities to show the designer, for example, where those clock domain crossings are, to be able to constrain for multiple clocks, an...
