Just three decades ago, DRAM memory production was still at its infancy. The price for a single component was a double-digit dollar value. The package, assembly and testing costs accounted only for a very little portion of the total price of the components. Parts that did not pass all the quality expectations during testing were simply scrapped. Since these early times, the scale of economy has forced the memory manufacturers to dramatically reduce the sales-prices and margins by exponentially increasing the output. One key-factor to keep the profitability was to avoid scrapping marginal quality parts. Each and every produced component regardless of the quality level should find a customer that can use it.

Including Mathematical Models in Emulation
When we talk about emulation, we usually talk about digital logic that is expressed in RTL form and then populates the gates in the emulator.
Emulation for Automotive Functional Safety
As designers, we all want our designs to work correctly. We have pride of ownership. So we verify like crazy to make sure we did a good job.
Advanced Process Nodes Make Emulation Essential
The semiconductor industry embodies a relentless march from today’s processes, which have small features, to future process nodes, which will involve features sizes that might seem crazy today.
Why Advanced Packaging Means More Emulation
When we think of emulation as part of our verification plan, most of us are likely to think in terms of a full chip being exercised through a wide range of scenarios, including running software on the
