Because of the ever-increasing power density in today's electronics thanks to the miniaturization of semiconductor packages and electronic systems and trends for thin-form consumer products, today’s electronics often have heat dissipation challenges that need to be resolved during design.
Las Vegas, Nevada. “We envision the industrial metaverse as a virtual world that is nearly indistinguishable from reality, enabling people — along with AI — to collaborate in real time to address real-world challenges,” stated Siemens CEO Roland Busch.
Alps Alpine used Siemens’ Symphony™ platform for mixed-signal applications when developing and verifying its new functionally safe capacitance detection integrated circuit (IC), which enables proximity, touch, and spatial gesture detection across a range of human-machine interface systems in applications like automotive and smart devices. The Symphony platform allowed Alps Alpine to achieve silicon accurate simulation for the new IC, increasing functional verification productivity by 5x.

Despite the uncertainties in the current economic and geopolitical landscape, 2022 was a stellar year for electronic innovation, and I am sure in 2023 we’ll see continued innovation in the IC and electronic systems design industry. Here are some megatrends in the industry that I think are worth monitoring in the year ahead.
RISC-V Summit, San Jose. Siemens Digital Industries Software announced that its security and cloud enabled Sokol Flex OS software, centered around the open-source Yocto Project industry standard, supports RISC-V embedded advancement with its customizable Linux platforms for the RISC-V architecture. “Siemens continues to show leadership within the RISC-V ecosystem with the launch of Sokol Flex OS for RISC-V,” said Krishnakumar Ramamoorthi, senior product marketing manager of Microchip Technology's FPGA business unit.
The third article in our metaverse series focuses on conceptual and metadata models that enable interoperability among connected digital twins in an industrial metaverse.
The concept of digital twins, taken to its ultimate potential, can create digital representations of nearly everything. Yet, much of the value of digital twins depends on the ability of distributed, heterogeneous systems to interoperate.
