Explore the Extended Reality Continuum with Eragon 845, based on Snapdragon™ 845 Processor

As extended reality (XR) moves past concept stage, it is not difficult to envision a scenario where real world blends perfectly with the technology-driven virtual world. Extended reality is an umbrella term that covers virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and everything in between. The power of extended reality can create user experiences where virtual reality is unrestricted and augmented reality is harmonizing virtual elements with the real world. Read More

Understanding the Importance of Exploratory Testing in an Agile Environment

When it comes to testing software products, testers follow planned and formal testing procedures. However, sometimes in order to identify defects and obtain quick feedback with minimum planning, exploratory testing is used, which allows testers to test functional aspects of a product without following a stringent test plan. Let us understand what is exploratory testing and how it is useful in an Agile environment. Read More

Usage of Multibit Flip-Flop and its Challenges in ASIC Physical Design

The continuous need for reduced size of the chip in the VLSI industry brings exciting challenges to the layout engineers for designing better and high-performing integrated circuits, which needs to consume low power even while reducing the silicon area and cost involved. In this article, get to know about the usage of multibit flops in the design to reduce the power component of the ICs and other design challenges faced while using the multibit flip-flops (MBFF) and ways to overcome them.

Understanding Electromigration and IR Drop in SoC Design

As we push through lower technology nodes in the IC and chip design, the wire width goes thinner along with transistor size. This makes the wire resistance more dominant on 16nm and below technology nodes. This increasing resistance and the decreasing width of metal wires introduce many Electromigration and IR drop issues. This paper discusses the problems of electromigration and IR drop, and techniques to prevent the occurrence of these issues in electronic devices. Read More

A Step-by-Step Overview of Product Engineering Services

Product engineering service can be defined as an engineering consulting activity, which uses various hardware, embedded, software and IT services solution for the designing and development of products. There are different phases of product engineering — from inception to the end of the lifecycle of a product. Therefore, when we talk about product engineering, it is also important to know about its different phases. This white paper helps you explore different phases of product engineering services.
