    Code scavenging in chip design-real-lesson-aws-outage-jpg

    The embarrassing outage of Amazon Web Services this week should open our eyes to a growing problem. Complex systems are difficult to manage, but if they are connected in dependent ways, a fragile result emerges. Such structures are subject to unexpected ...

    Article: Chip On Wafer On Substrate (CoWoS)-5g-emperor-new-clothes-jpg

    A very odd phenomenon is sweeping the automotive and wireless industries and was in full flower at MWC 2017. The onset of 5G connectivity has wireless carriers excited over the high bandwidth, low latency and high availability applications inherent in this new network technology – to say nothing of network slicing for targeted applications. But the application segments ...

    Apparently this event is now being postponed until sometime later in the year. Stay tuned

    We spend a lot of our time with our heads down in the technical details and when we look up at what we think is the big picture, it’s usually just a little bit bigger, often no more than a justification for immediate ...

    Article: ARM and a LEG-oems-lead-way-self-driving-tech-jpg

    It's never a good sign when car makers are called before Congress. It's almost as bad as being asked to visit the President. But last week the meeting didn't involve allegations or investigations. It was just an occasion for a friendly chat regarding "Self-Driving Cars: Road to Deployment."

    IEEE Spectrum was kind enough to excerpt notable moments from the Q&A which inadvertently highlighted the confusion

    Article: IBM Tapes Out 14nm ARM Processor on Cadence Flow-coin-cell-battery-min-jpeg

    We’ve become pretty good at reducing power in IoT edge devices, to the point that some are expected to run for up to 10 years on a single battery charge. But what if you wanted to go lower still or ...
