Welcome to Electronic Design's destination for test and measurement technology trends, products, industry news, new applications, articles and commentary from our contributing technical experts and the community.
A unified verification flow like Synopsys' Verification Continuum will be essential for realizing the next generation of designs, which will require verification of yet more complex logic and software in the same or even less time as allocated for today’s designs.
The 1-Wire interface is low-cost and effective, but useful only for a very short distance; by using a standard bus-buffer IC, this distance can be extended while creating a convenient interface to a microcontroller....More
In an effort to shrink the time-consuming process involved with the visual inspection and debugging of electronic schematics, Altium and Valydate joined forces to create a new solution: ValydateVERA, a design analysis and verification tool, will now be integrated seamlessly with Altium Designer....More

The HyperLynx Alliance virtual lab series, formed by Mentor Graphics and industry partners,helps reduce engineering time and costs associated with evaluation design tool requests and design case setup....More
The 1149.1-2013 and P1687 standards provide the means to describe the structure and procedures needed to integrate and automatically use intellectual property (IP), and will ultimately change what customers can expect from IP suppliers as well as how chip design and integration teams buy and use IP....More
One would think it would be easy to come up with a novel idea and bring it to market. But how do you know that your design really works? Perhaps more importantly, how do you know that it meets government regulations?...More
In our generation of microcontroller-enhanced everything, it has been frustrating at best to see how often the capability of smart hardware has been foiled by the design of poorly purposed software....More
Borrowing a stanza from The Who’s hit song seemed like a good way to bring attention to a critical topic often ignored by engineers. When finding information on a company that has an interesting product, what do we do? Of course, we look at its Web page to learn more....More
Understanding technical concepts in different languages can sometimes prove to be difficult, particularly when you have to communicate it. In this article, I discuss the challenges and possible courses of action....More
