Cadence Professorship Endowed at Stanford


Reading time ( words)

Cadence Design Systems, Inc. has announced the endowment of the Cadence Design Systems Professorship at Stanford University in the School of Engineering and the appointment of Dr. Kunle Olukotun as the first Cadence Professor. Dr. Olukotun is a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and is the director of the Pervasive Parallelism Lab at Stanford University.

Cadence established the Cadence Design Systems Professorship Fund in May 2014, and the professorship is awarded to those at the top of their academic field who have made a significant contribution to the development of computer systems. The partnership with Stanford University is part of Cadence's overall commitment to advancing education and fostering innovation in the field of computer system design.

"Dr. Olukotun's long history of leading pioneering technology advancements, such as the Stanford Hydra single-chip multiprocessor research project, made him the logical choice for this professorship," said Lip-Bu Tan, president and CEO of Cadence. "We applaud him on his selection and look forward to the results of his continued research in the areas of simulation, estimation and verification techniques for system-level design."

"Dr. Olukotun's accomplishments in the area of computer systems to date have been significant," said Persis Drell, dean of the School of Engineering at Stanford. "We applaud Cadence for endowing this new professorship and enabling Dr. Olukotun to continue his research, which promises to have far-reaching, positive effects in the future."

PCB Cooling Strategies, Part 1

01/19/2018 | Bin Zhou, EDADOC
With the development of communication and IT industries and the ever-increasing demand for information analysis, many chip makers have racked their brains trying to provide customers with better technology, such as increased computing power and storage capacity of chips as well as diversifying their product offerings.

Streamlining Thermal Design of PCBs

01/10/2018 | Dr. John Parry, CEng, Mentor
When designing a PCB, thermal issues are often locked in at the point of selecting and laying out the chip package for the board. After that, only remedial actions are possible if the components are running too hot. Assumptions made about the uniformity of the airflow in these early design stages can mean a disaster for the commercial viability of a PCB if those assumptions are incorrect. A different approach is needed to improve reliability and to optimize board performance. Dr. John Parry of Mentor explains.

Mike Jouppi Discusses his Drive for Better Thermal Data

01/12/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCB Design007
If you mention thermal management in a group of PCB designers and design engineers, Mike Jouppi’s name usually pops up. Mike is an engineer and founder of the Thermal Management LLC consulting firm. He spent years updating IPC’s charts on current-carrying capacity, which had been unchanged since the 1950s. I recently caught up with Mike and asked him to give us his views on the state of thermal management, as well as the tools and standards related to thermal design.
