    Article: ASIC Prototyping: Dini Group and Tektronix-nvidia-handles-data-senate-care-jpg

    When speaking before the U.S. Senate or Congress one has to choose one’s words carefully. The temptation, when one is speaking before legislators and microphones and cameras, is to tell it like it is and speak truth to power. The reality is that the power of the legislators and the microphones and the cameras must be respected and, consequently, words must be chosen carefully.

    Article: Designing with FinFETs-bosch-fab-2017-jpg

    There has been quite a bit of coverage on this already but Bosch building a fab in Dresden is a big deal so let me share my experience, observation, and opinion as us bloggers do. The $1.1B question of course is: Why didn't Bosch invest in ...

    Article: Is The Fabless Semiconductor Ecosystem at Risk?-dsrc-road-ridiculous-jpg

    Stupid has a home and that home is in Macomb County, Michigan. It is here, we learn from The Detroit News, that General Motors Co. has decided to test the use of wireless technology in conjunction with roadside QR code signs to transmit vital traffic information to passing cars. Those messages will only be communicated ...

    This was my 34th DAC, yes 34. It is a shame blogging did not exist back then because I would have liked to have read thoughts from my eager young mind, or maybe not. The first thing that struck me this year is the great content. Before DAC I review the ...

    Article: How much SRAM proportion could be integrated in SoC at 20 nm and below?-austemper-tool-suite-min-jpg

    It takes courage and perhaps even a little insanity to start a new EDA venture these days – unless you have a decently differentiated value proposition in a hot market. One company that caught my eye, Austemper, seems to measure ...

    Article: Introduction to FinFET technology Part I-amazon-eating-whole-foods-jpg

    I doubt that Google and Microsoft ever worried about the prospect that a book retailer, Amazon, would come to lead one of their highest-growth markets: cloud services. And I doubt that Apple ever feared that Amazon’s Alexa would eat Apple’s Siri for lunch.

    Article: Designing with FinFETs-matrix-min-jpeg

    A little self-indulgence for the season, to lighten the relentless diet of DAC updates. I found a recent Wired article based on a TED talk on consciousness. The speaker drew a conclusion that consciousness was not something that could ever be captured in a machine and was a unique ...

    Article: "Death of Equities" = A Silicon Valley Revival-ai-end-jobs-jpg

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) is advancing so rapidly that even its developers are being caught off guard.
