    Want to learn 20 nm layout techniques!-synopsys-emxd-dsp.jpg

    IoT is more a concept than a market segment, covering many different type of applications. Writing about IoT quickly require to be specific, and the wording “Massive IoT” indicates that we are addressing IoT edge device, or more precisely end node device. In fact, Synopsys DesignWare ARC EMxD DSP IP core is architecture to target the billions of connected devices for which the driving factors are low cost and ultra-low power, like sampling or monitoring devices. Massive IoT doesn’t include latency ...

    Which way the semiconductor industry is going?-india-traffic-min.jpeg

    While at DVCon I talked to Apurva Kalia (VP R&D in the System and Verification group at Cadence). He introduced me to the ultimate benchmark test for self-driving – an autonomous 3-wheeler driving in Delhi traffic. If you’ve never visited India, the traffic there is quite an experience. ...

    Most of us continue to drive cars and for me there's always been a fascination with all things electrical that go into the actual design of a car. I've done typical maintenance tasks on my cars over the years like changing the battery, installing a new radio, replacing bulbs, changing a fuse, swapping out dashboard lights, and even putting in new power window assemblies. The automotive engineers that get to do the actual design work face a ...

    It has taken the U.S. 16 years to enact Data Breach laws in each state. California led the way, with the first, in 2002 to protect its citizens. Last in line was Alabama, which just signed their law in March 2018. There is no overarching consistent data breach law at the federal level. It is all handled ...

    What Keeps the executives of Semiconductor awake at night?-caption.jpg

    In a post-silicon bringup, it is customary to bring the design into a known state prior to applying further testing sequences. This is achieved through a Power-on-Reset (POR) or similar reset strategy which translates to initializing all the storage elements to a known state.

    During design implementation, varying ...
