    The paper considers how software products for data acquisition, analysis, and visualization are starting to get their acts together in their latest releases. Such coordination was just a dream a few years ago. One reason for the change is that software developers no longer look at what they create as isolated products intended for a specific mission, but as components within larger enterprises.

    Engineering math may have changed little since slide rules were traded in for computers, but math software continues to evolve, driven by the rapid progress of computers and by competition among software vendors. Perhaps the most interesting developments have been the emergence of new ways to publish documents containing math on the World Wide Web and the changes in math programs that have resulte...

    The era of the system on a chip is well under way, bringing in its train new headaches for the IC design engineer. One reason for the difficulties is that such systems are increasingly being built up from an assembly of pre-designed components-so-called intellectual property (IP) or virtual components-which sometimes come from diverse sources. Further, a decision is often demanded very early in th... View full abstract»

    With the advent of the so-called system on a chip, or superchip, telling whether a complex integrated circuit is free of manufacturing flaws has become more difficult than ever before. Few believe that any automatic test equipment (ATE) machine of known architecture will be able to test tomorrow's chips as accurately or as thoroughly as yield and reliability considerations demand. It is for this t... View full abstract»

  • Embedded DRAM technology: opportunities and challenges

    Embedding dynamic RAMs will give system designers large amounts of high-bandwidth, high-performance memory to apply to completely new functions. Although embedding DRAM allows for a new dimension in large-scale integration, the path to success is not smooth. Redesigning at the system level is a must for exploiting the wide memory widths to obtain the performance available-merely mapping existing d... View full abstract»
