This paper talks about some debugging techniques for FPGAs that can be adopted to speed up the validation process while at the same time highlighting some of their constraints.
Meeting IR drop requirements on an SoC can often be a challenging task. This paper discusses a new hook-up methodology for memories on SoCs that can significantly reduce the worst IR drop on SoCs and also lead to improved performance.
Moore’s Law may not be running out of steam, but it may be running out of money, as scaling to smaller geometries becomes more cost prohibitive.

To prevent seemingly Lilliputian processor disparities from hatching a swarm of
bugs, application developers working in C must keep native processor size and
endianness in mind and write their code with an eye toward portability.
