    Xiaomi, an aspirant to top the Smartphone market through its disruptive entry into the maturing mobile phone market with its high quality Smartphones at rock bottom prices is getting roadblocks in its second largest market, India. It surreptitiously entered into today’s top mobile phone market in its home ground, China and in just ~3 years it’s already #3 in worldwide mobile market.

    Article: What Just Changed On My Transistor-Level Schematic?-3d-1-jpg

    I have been at the 3D ASIP conference that is held every year in Burlingame. It is far and away the best place to get a snapshot on what is going on in 3D (and 2.5D) IC design each year. One of the presentations was by the guys from Yole on where the industry is right now. Other presentations were on pathfinding, power ...

    The Internet of Things (IoT) is apparently the next big thing, but it tends to appear in different ways to different people. To some it’s all about connectivity of the web of devices and to other it’s synonymous with sensors and wearable devices. And the scope of IoT is expanding by the day—to smart lighting, smart thermostats, smart homes, and smart buildings. Even cameras and cars are increasingly being seen under the IoT fold.

    To understand the larger ...
