    Article: Variation at 28-nm with Solido and GLOBALFOUNDRIES-creating-vdks-jpg

    Virtual prototyping has, inexplicably, been largely a DIY thing so far. Tools and models have come from different sources with different approaches, and it has been up to the software development team to do the integration step and cobble together a toolchain and methodology that fits with their development ...

    Article: Over-under: Apple, 52M iPhones in 4Q-bulk-vs-fdsoi-min-jpg

    I recently took a look at the current status and future direction of FinFET based logic processes in my Leading Edge Logic Landscape blog. I thought it would be interesting to take a similar look at FDSOI and to compare and contrast the two processes. My Leading Edge Logic Landscape blog is available here.

    Article: iPhone 5: Boost to semiconductor market?-highlight_2016oip_papers-gif

    Recently, TSMC conducted their annual Open Innovation Platform forum meeting in San Jose. Although TSMC typically eschews a theme for the forum, David Keller, EVT TSMC North America, used a phrase in his opening remarks that served as a foundation for the rest of the meeting – “celebrate the way we collaborate”.

    The forum begins with a technology overview session from TSMC. Jack Sun, VP and CTO TSMC R&D, provided the keynote, entitled: ”Technology Leadership for Collaborative Innovation”. Cliff Hou, VP R&D Design Technology Platform, provided an ...

    Article: iPhone 5: Boost to semiconductor market?-windows-10-anniversary-update-min-jpg

    Ever since Microsoft launched Windows 10, they have primarily been focused on getting people to upgrade their existing machines from Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10, in addition to promoting their Surface line. The upgrade program allowed users of both operating systems to upgrade their systems to Windows 10 for free for a year. That all ended ...

    Article: Cadence Mixed Signal Technology Summit-network-vs-platform-min-jpg

    So, how do we define these terms? What is the core difference? Why does it matter – what is the implication on business models? And finally, which firms today embody these models?

    First, the basics. Digital business models are inherently exponential in terms of value generation. ...

    There are a lot of clever techniques to automatically find and even implement methods for register gating and memory gating, but the bulk of power-saving still depends on designer and architect insight based on expected range of use of a device, complemented by practical use-case simulations. Of course this team needs to be able to see ...

    Article: iPhone 5: Boost to semiconductor market?-car-virus-alert-min-jpg

    What if we all looked at driving as less of a right and more of an addiction, a disability, or a disease to be avoided, cured or overcome? What if driving were seen as a menace to society draining lives, money and time from the economy? What would our public policy priorities ...

    Article: A Brief History of Atrenta and RTL Design-pokemon-go-cia-png

    So it's finally out, the truth about Pokemon Go (and probably the rest of the app based mobile gaming world) and it's a shocking, painful truth that will pretty much destroy the industry and force people back to their ...

    Article: SemiWiki on Android-15-key-building-blocks-iot-solution-jpg

    IoT solution development is complex. In many cases, development entails combining expertise from a number of different areas such as embedded system engineering, connectivity solution design, big data handling, application development, and data encryption techniques. Each area demands a specific array of competences and proficiency to function within its own realm. Furthermore, a varied skillset with diverse knowledge is required to develop a complete solution that blends offerings across all of these areas. But within these areas ...
