    Unique device identities are at the core of all computer security systems. Just as important is that each unique identity cannot be copied, because once copied they can be used illegitimately. Unique device IDs are used to ensure ...

    Article: Building Energy-Efficient ICs from the Ground Up-intel-diversity-2018.jpg

    Growing up in a military family, mostly in California, I would consider my cultural diversity life experience to be more than most. I remember in the 1960s some older folks were chattering about a colored family moving into our neighborhood and they had a son my age. ...

    Google says it wants to charge fees to handset makers in Europe for Android apps such as Googlemaps and Gmail, according to the New York Times. The move is clearly a reaction to the $5.1B fine imposed by the European Commission (and under appeal by Google) in ...

    Article: Improving Methodology the NVIDIA Way-ford-dc-refining-autonomous.jpg

    When cities put on a press event to announce they are welcoming a company to town to test autonomous vehicles within the city limits the news is greeted with polite interest and some trepidation - as it was yesterday in Washington, D.C. There is an “oo-ah awesome” high-tech buzz immediately tempered by a ...

    Why I stopped "writing" RTL-semiwiki-banner-ad-1-min.jpg

    There’s a familiar saying that you can’t improve what you can’t measure. Taking that one step further, the more improvement you want, the more accurately you have to measure. This become pretty important when you’re building huge designs in advanced technologies. ...

    Article: Startups: the Biggest Challenge-gary-patton-gf-keynote-min.jpg

    China has always been an intriguing semiconductor puzzle that very few companies have solved and now it is much more puzzling with the current political meandering. The GlobalFoundries vision of having foundries all over the world was very appealing to me back in 2009 and even more so today. Remember, ...

    Power device designers know that when they see a deceptively simple pair of PowerMOS device symbols in the output stage of a power converter circuit schematic, they are actually looking at a massively complex network of silicon ...

    Why I stopped "writing" RTL-emulation_virtual-ice-min.jpg

    At a superficial level, emulation in the hardware design world is just a way to run a simulation faster. The design to be tested runs on the emulator, connected to whatever test mechanisms you desire, and the whole setup can run many orders of magnitude faster than it could if the design was running inside a software simulator. And this is indeed how emulators are often used—to speed up big simulations—whether you are putting the whole design in the emulator or using the emulator to speed up some part of the design, while the rest continues to run in the software simulator (generally known as simulation acceleration). ...

    Article: A Brief History of ClioSoft-president-xi-jinping.jpg

    I read with interest the US Chamber of Commerce’s assessment of the Made in China (MIC) 2025 plan to transform the world’s most populous nation into an Advanced Manufacturing leader. MIC 2025 covers 10 strategic industries that China identifies as critical to economic growth in the 21st century, including next-gen information ...

    A quality standard that stays static and is not itself targeted for continuous improvement, is a standard that is breaking one of the first tenets of quality. This is why the ISO 9001 specification has been updated several ...
