    When I read the news that NXP was buying Freescale, it felt like a part of me – and a big part of the history of high tech industry in Arizona – died. There was a time not that long ago where Motorola was the biggest employer in this state, way before Freescale and ON Semi separated from the mothership. Somehow, even with moving headquarters to Austin and downsizing and changes in leadership, Freescale still felt like an old friend who lived just down the street. ...

    I had a meeting with Harn Hua Ng, the CEO of Plunify, a couple of weeks ago. They are an EDA company that I'd never heard of. Partially that is because they only play in the FPGA space, a country I visit less frequently than SoC land. Plus, they are based in Singapore, a country I have only been to a couple of times in my life.

    There is quite a debate raging on whether Samsung Foundry is truly in production at 14nm. The word amongst the fabless semiconductor ecosystem is yes and this comes from two very large fabless companies that are reportedly using Samsung for 14nm and have even started looking at Samsung 10nm. Of course you can Google for stories by the foreign press about ...

    • ASML making progress - but is it fast enough?
    • ASML has missed 10nm , can it catch 7nm? An economic question
    • Day one at SPIE- Better tone than last year but still cautious

    1000 simulated wafers versus 700 simulated
    At the opening of the SPIE conference ASML announced that TSMC had reached 1000 wafers a day "exposed" (not printed or produced) by TSMC.
