    No, not the news network though I confess I am curious to see how many initial hits that title attracts. Then I clarify that I’m talking about convolutional neural nets, and my would-be social media fame evaporates. Oh well – for those few of you still with me, CNNs ...

    I recently read a new white paper release by Mentor, a Siemens Business, that delved into the intricacies of Chemical Mechanical Polishing (CMP) and I got a sense of Déjà vu. My professional career in the IC industry started at Texas instruments and the white paper made ...

    What Keeps the executives of Semiconductor awake at night?-1-aaasil-fmeda-min.jpg

    According with McKinsey, “analysts predict revenue growth for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) to be up to 29 percent, giving the segment one of the highest growth rates in the automotive and related industries.” Design cycle in automotive segment is much longer than in segments like mobile, PC or consumer. If you expect to see ADAS powered or ...

    Article: Cadence 3D Methodology-standards-min.jpeg

    It’s near-impossible to read anything today about electronic design for cars without running into the ISO 26262 standard. If you design airborne electronic hardware, you’re likely very familiar with the DO-254 standard. But what do you do if you want to design a product ...

    I'm an avid road bike enthusiast having just completed my 2017 goal of 13,000 miles, so follow me on Strava if you want to see the routes and photo adventures I have in Oregon. In the photo below I'm the guy in the middle with the Portland Velo jersey on and we're in a parking lot just 2 blocks away from Intel's Ronler Acres site in Hillsboro.

    SVA : System Verilog Assertion is for Designer too!!-french-tech-night-ces-2016.jpg

    France exposure will be very strong at Las Vegas CES this year, the 3rd country with 365 companies, behind USA and China. If you just take the start-up number into account, 274 French start-ups will be present, just behind the USA with 280 start-ups! If you look back, it’s a great jump compared with 2017 (178 start-up) and even greater with 2015 when only 66 French start-ups ...
