    Once again there is a Heart of Technology event at DAC. It is the Love IP Party on Monday evening. Full details at the end of this entry, but first a bit of context. Heart of Technology was started by Jim Hogan who probably doesn't need much introduction to anyone who has worked in EDA for any length of time.

    Aaron Bartlett, a respected semiconductor industry executive, thinks that "Age of Mobile Data: The Wireless Journey to All Data 4G Networks" is the best book he has come across since Walter Isaacson's biography on Steve Jobs. There is no dearth of books on wireless networks and Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology ...

    There cannot be a product without a need. The need is the first essential aspect which has to be created or at least felt and then comes a slew of motivator factors including style quotient and fashion statements. It’s possible that a genuine but ill conceived need can be undermined by an overwhelming fashion statement ...

    One of the advantages of being an independent consultant is that I get to choose who I work with and what type of projects I accept. In fact, that is why I originally started blogging, to get exposure to a wide range of topics and brand myself as a strategic semiconductor business development professional. Now rather than wasting time looking for projects they come looking for me.

    A year ago many eulogized the death of Moore’s Law at 28nm due to higher prices per transistor at more advanced nodes, but now that we have celebrated the 50th anniversary let’s look ahead to technology scaling and electronic systems miniaturization for the next decade. Despite ...

    Last week was the Linley Mobile Conference. Mobile is a huge semiconductor market and, outside of Intel, is the main driver for next generation process technologies. A new generation of mobile phones comes along, fills the leading edge fabs for a year or two and then ...

    It’s true that Japan was once the center of semiconductor business and we were carrying on with that perception until recently. In 1990, six out of top10 semiconductor companies (excluding pure-play foundries) were in Japan; and 59% of worldwide semiconductor market was concentrated ...

    I like to quiz people on which country is the one where the most leading edge research on semiconductors is done. People reflexively answer USA or maybe Taiwan or Japan. Nobody who doesn't already know the answer would pick Belgium. After all the EU headquarters ...
