    The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) is holding the first meeting today of a new advisory committee focused, in its own words: "on automation across a number of modes." The committee, made up of an array of experts from a variety of fields, is "to immediately begin work on some of the most pressing and relevant matters facing transportation today, including the development and deployment of automated vehicles, and determining the needs of the Department as it continues with its relevant ...

    Mixed Phone Marriages End in Divorce?-california-rules-road-jpg

    California's influence on the global automotive industry remains intact at the start of 2017 in spite of the state's strict licensing for autonomous vehicle testing on public roads. California managed to chase Uber away with that licensing requirement, but in the process the state has established a benchmark for data collection from autonomous vehicles that has provided a glimpse into the performance ...

    The world-renowned statistician, Professor George Box, said, "Essentially, all models are wrong, but some are useful." -- that quote was the theme for one of the technical talks at the recent MOS-AK Workshop, held at UC-Berkeley.

    Just how reliant are we on computing infrastructure? Sometimes it takes just a little outage to get a taste of the interwoven dependency we don’t readily see.

    It can be small. The international travelers landing in U.S. airports on January 3rd, one of the busiest travel days of the year, found themselves stuck in long lines due to a temporary ...

    Article: The Auto Industry Speaks @ Renesas DevCon-ocean_medallion-jpg

    When one thinks of CES, one typically thinks of the latest in virtual reality or huge super high resolution televisions, sophisticated drones and robots. However, what caught my eye this year came from a company you don’t typically associate with high tech gadgets ...

    Article: Power and Reliability Challenges-geforce-min-jpg

    Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO of NVIDIA, gave the opening keynote at CES this year. That’s hardly surprising. From a company that operated on the fringes of mainstream awareness (those guys that do gamer graphics), they finished 2016 as the top-performing company in the S&P ...

    HANUMAN of verification team!-tesla-uber-teflon-tested-jpg

    For the past two years the impression has been spreading that Tesla Motors can do no wrong. (I can't really say the same for Uber after the recent San Francisco licensing debacle.) There is no question that Tesla's legal department is growing by the month as fights persist over opening stores and forestalling ...

    Article: Cooley on Synopsys-EVE-leeco-road-bike-min-jpg

    It's back, that giant consumer electronics trade show CES 2017, held every January in Las Vegas with too many new product introductions to mention in one blog, so I'll take a more focused look at what's new for cycling.

    Smart Bike
    We all know what a smart phone is, but what could a smart bike be? The Chinese company LeEco has managed to integrate several pieces of separate technology into a single bicycle dubbed the LeEco Smart Road Bike:

    • Carbon frame road bike
    • 4" touchscreen (Android 6.0 BikeOS, Snapdragon 410 processor,

    Article: TSMC OIP Forum 2012 Trip Report!-dead-pool-jpg

    In 2015 we saw $85B in semiconductor acquisition activity and in 2016 there was more than $110B. Given 2015 and 2016 were relatively flat years for the $335B semiconductor industry and 2017 looks like more of the same we should expect consolidation to continue, absolutely.
