    Article: Novocell Semiconductor Update 2012!-eva-air-first-class-jpg

    Rarely do I fly first class but I did on my recent trip to Asia. It was one of the new planes with pod-like seats that transforms into a bed. The flight left SFO at 1 A.M. so I fell asleep almost immediately missing the first ...

    Article: Piper Jaffray Chip Analyst Spanks Intel!-double-fin-finfet-jpg

    Have you ever had a peanut butter and bacon sandwich? Everything goes better with bacon! Which brings me to one of my favorite sayings: “(insert two complimentary things) go together like peanut butter and jelly”. How about this: “low power and IoT”, “IoT and OTP”, and ...

    Article: Only slight growth in 2012 semiconductor market-fortune-unicorn-jpg

    As birthday #55 rapidly approaches I say to myself: Self, if I were dying what would be my regrets? The first thing I did was ask The Google because I’m not coming up with anything really interesting myself. Also, it really isn’t ...

    Article: ♫ If you are going to San Francisco, be sure to....-nothing-burger-jpg

    The latest Intel rumor that the pro Intel media are flogging is that Intel modems will be in some of the new iPhones. The deal is estimated at around $1B. An “estimated” value of a “rumor” deal is quite funny in itself but let’s take a deeper look ...

    2016 will be a banner year for the System on Chip (SoC) industry. For the first time we will have leading edge SoCs (Apple, Qualcomm, Samsung) on the same manufacturing process enabling a true Apples to Apples comparison. Unfortunately, how we got there is being misrepresented by ...

    Verification claims 70% of the chip design schedule!-top-20-semiconductor-sales-leaders-1h-2015-jpg

    As I watched the GOP debate between the top 10 candidates last week I asked myself which one of those men would I pick to help the United States stay competitive in the semiconductor industry. I’m saddened to say that the only candidate even remotely ...

    Who will Apple partner with at 20nm: TSMC, Intel, Both, or Neither?-tsmc-oip-2015-jpg

    This is the 5th TSMC Open Innovation Platform Ecosystem Forum and it is not to be missed. Please note that the location has moved from the San Jose Convention Center to the Santa Clara Convention Center which is literally right across the street from the new Levi’s Stadium. If you haven’t been to the new stadium you really should take ...

    Article: TSMC absolutely did NOT halt 28nm production!-eda-tool-reviews-jpg

    One of the things I enjoy reading is a product review by an actual user of the product. I’m not talking about a review written by a stealthy PR person and put through an approval cycle then posted under the user’s name. I’m taking ...

    Article: 20nm IC Design at IBM using Cadence Tools-ceva-infographic-2015-png

    One of the IP companies that I track is CEVA, the largest licensor of DSP cores. CEVA is the fifth largest IP company behind ARM, Synopsys, Imagination Technologies, and Cadence (Lattice acquired Silicon Image). CEVA is actually a combination of companies ...
