Cadence attacks design challenges with software updates, new DSP

In his keynote speech at CDN Live, Cadence Senior Vice President Tom Beckley compared the complexity of technology in former times and now: The spaceship Challenger that in 1986 exploded shortly after takeoff used some 500.000 lines of software code. The multitude of computers in an average vehicle of our days run more than 100 million lines of codes. This example shows how complexity has increased over the past 30 years. Nevertheless, the introduction of innovative technologies such as machine vision, deep learning and the massive deployment of sensors associated with the Internet of Things will bring electronics and software to an unseen level of complexity. “Deep learning really explodes”, Beckley said. “In my 35 years (of career as an engineer) I have never seen so many opportunities for software…
