    Article: Want 10nm Wafers? That'll Cost You-remote-control-crazy-likes-company.jpg

    Three years ago Chris Valasek and Charlie Miller hacked an FCA Jeep to demonstrate the ability to remotely control a vehicle. The stunt was intended to make the point that the automotive industry had a problem with cybersecurity and the consequences of failing to deal with this vulnerability ...

    Article: Developing ARM v8 Code...Today-apple-tsmc.jpg

    TSMC reported an in line quarter, as expected and also reported down Q1 guidance, also as expected. The only thing some investors may have been caught off guard about is the magnitude of the expected drop, 14%, from $9.4B to $7.35B. This is the largest quarter over quarter drop for TSMC in a very ...

    Article: Extending Wintel collaboration to Nokia?-cnbc-nenni-interview.jpg

    Over the holidays I did an interview with CNBC on the subject of Qualcomm. The producer had read the History of Qualcomm chapter in our book Mobile Unleashed and wanted to base a 15 minute report on it. The interview lasted 90 minutes but of course only snippets of what I said were ...

    Article: Extending Wintel collaboration to Nokia?-robert-maire-bloomberg.jpg

    We attended the Needham Growth Conference which is one of the first conferences of the year and in the quiet period before most companies reported so even though there was no "official" comment from most companies on the quarter, the surrounding commentary spoke volumes:

    • The down cycle (and everyone admits its a cycle and no one admits to ever saying it wasn't still cyclical...) is on going and appears to be

    Article: Welcome to the Video Club!-apple-intel.jpg

    Interestingly, in some circles I’m known as an “Intel basher” but nothing could be further from the truth. I grew up with Intel and give them full credit for bringing serious compute power to our desktops. My first ...

    Article: Tubes of the Future-arm_isp-before-after-min.jpg

    In all the enthusiasm around machine learning (ML) and intelligent vision, we tend to forget the front-end of this process. The image captured on a CCD camera goes through some very sophisticated image processing before ML even gets to ...

    Article: SoC Implementation, Sometimes You Need a Plan B-generative-design-wikipedia-min.jpg

    Scanning headlines of technology news every day I was somewhat familiar with the phrase "Generative Design" and even browsed the Wikipedia page to find this informative flow-chart that shows the practice of generative design.


    Generative design is an iterative design process that involves a program that will generate a certain number of outputs that meet certain constraints, and a designer that will fine tune the feasible region by changing minimal and maximal values of ...

    As we are preparing for the "IoT Devices Can Kill and What Chip Makers Need to Do Now" webinar next week, Intrinsic-ID did a nice press release with Integrated Device Technology. IDT is one of the companies I grew up with here in Silicon Valley that pivoted ...

    Intelligence as in the term artificial intelligence (AI) involves learning or training, depending on which perspective it is viewed from –and it has many nuances. As the basis of most deep learning methods, neural network based learning algorithms have gained usage traction, when it was shown that training with deep neural network (DNN) using ...

    Life is full of convenience-security tradeoffs. Sometimes these are explicit, where you get to make an active choice about how secure or insecure you want things to be. Other times we are unaware of the choices we are making, and how risky they are for the convenience provided. If ...
