Today's IC designers face a rapidly changing landscape as technology evolves and infrastructure grows more complex. Steve discusses these challenges and what’s being done to alleviated them. Topics include: The rapid growth of IP vendors. Silicon predictability issues as foundries see a greater number of unverified IP blocks. How the unilateral direction of PDKs from Foundry to Designer is broken as designers seek bilateral PDKs where they can include their own learnings without giving it away to their competitors. IoT presents new challenges to design, as scaling is not a cost optimal solution. Multi-die solutions lower silicon cost, but adds cost challenges with 2.5D and 3D packaging.
