    Article: A Brief History of GLOBALFOUNDRIES-intel-apple-rumor-jpg

    The media already has Apple and Intel in talks to make the A11 SoC in 2018 as a result of the recent Intel/ARM IP licensing deal. This is probably one of the funnier media bumbles I have read in a while so let’s talk about it in a little more detail.

    “According to Nikkei Asian Review, Intel is now perfectly poised to give TSMC ...

    Teams buy HDL simulation for best bang for the buck. Teams buy hardware emulation for the speed. We’ve talked previously about SCE-MI transactors as a standardized vehicle to connect the two approaches to get the benefits of both in an accelerated testbench – what else should be accounted for? ...

    Article: Mixed-Signal Methodology Guide-what-virtualization-min-jpg

    Virtualization is software that separates physical infrastructures to create various dedicated resources. It is the fundamental technology that powers cloud computing.

    "Virtualization software makes it possible to run multiple operating systems and multiple applications on the same server at the same time," said Mike Adams, director ...

    I strongly recommend giving a listen to John McElroy’s panel discussion podcast featuring Julia Steyn (pictured on the right, above), vice president of urban mobility and Maven for General Motors along with John Voelcker of Green Car Reports and Rebecca Lindland of Kelley Blue Book. Steyn offered up a mountain of substance regarding GM’s plans and GM’s thinking about the new, emerging ...

    Article: Mixed-Signal Methodology Guide-what-deep-learning-jpg

    Deep learning is an emerging topic in artificial intelligence (AI). A subcategory of machine learning, deep learning deals with the use of neural networks to improve things like speech recognition, computer vision, and natural language processing. It's quickly becoming one of the most sought-after fields in computer science. In the last few years, deep learning ...

    The IEEE S3S Conference (10-13 October 2016 at the San Francisco Airport Hyatt Regency) brings together 3 key technologies that will play a major role in tomorrow’s industry: SOI, 3D integration, and Subthreshold Microelectronics. The numerous degrees of freedom they allow enable the ultra-low power operation and adjustable performance ...

    Article: Power, Signal, Thermal and EMI signoff-bacteria-min-jpeg

    I recently found a couple of articles which caught my interest, both on roles bacteria can play in electronics. The first has to do with a method to form semiconductor-like structures on a sheet of graphene. Graphene ...

    Article: Intel Finally Comes Clean on 22nm SoCs!-pmic-article-figure-1-jpg

    Power. Every device needs it. Managing it properly can make all the difference between a device people enjoy using and one that is more hassle than it is worth. What happens between the battery and the processor is the job of the power management integrated circuit (PMIC). ...

    Article: Intel Finally Comes Clean on 22nm SoCs!-tesla-after-crash-jpg

    The funny thing about pitching new cars to the general public these days is that no one really wants to think about ever getting into a crash. There was a time when General Motors counted on OnStar as a deciding factor in selling cars because of its post-crash prophylaxis of automatically summoning assistance.

    A couple decades ...
