    If you are my age, you know that the most influential book in that era on VLSI design was Carver Mead and Lynn Conway's textbook, blah VLSI blah. Nobody can remember exactly what its title was, it was just referred to as Mead and Conway. In my opinion it was the most influential book on semiconductor design ever.

    I blogged seven months ago about the tremendous growth of SemiWiki compared to our friend John Cooley's site DeepChip. SemiWiki started out in January 2011 and probably caused DeepChip to start increasing their content to try and catch up. Let's look at the numbers at DeepChip to see how often publishing happens:

    Novati is a semiconductor company that you probably haven't heard of. It has its roots in Sematech back when Sematech was mainly in Austin rather than New York where it is today. The Sematech fab first became an independent company and then acquired by SVTC and operated under that name for 4 years. Finally, last the investors pulled the plug and SVTC ...

    We have entered the Summer lull, the quiet period before what is likely to be Apple’s largest volume launch of smartphones ever. While the launches are coming in like clockwork, it is the magnitude of the ramp that is likely to surprise many and it will be due not just to the features of iOS7, but also to the adoption of a well-worn Microsoft strategy. ...

    It was a nice break after my vacation, indulging into some of the pure science stuff, when an old colleague of mine, Dr. Gaurav Gandhi, founder of mLabs in Delhi came across introducing me to his new research and possible developments in this field. Gaurav was actually in my product validation team while I was at Cadence, very passionate about getting deep into technology and doing things in newer ways.

    I was delighted to know details about Memristor ...
