    Article: Cadence, Synopsys, and Mentor on FinFETs-moscone-center-west.jpg

    Driving into DAC on Sunday afternoon was a chore since Gay Pride week was finishing with the Gay Pride Parade. Streets were closed, traffic was crazy, and people were roller skating naked which seems wrong on so many levels. This year the opening ceremonies were in the convention center hallway which ...

    The venue
    Despite of being held at the new three-story Moscone West building, this year 55th DAC in San Francisco bore many similarities as compared with last year’s. Similar booth decors and floorplan positioning of the big two, Synopsys and Cadence, which were across of each other and right next to the first ...

    Article: Fixing Double-patterning Errors at 20nm-daniel-shushana-las-vegas-2014.jpg

    This was my 35th DAC and it did not disappoint, especially when it came to the DAC Drama Department. This year DAC proved once again that it is THE place for semiconductor professionals and academics to learn and network. The big news is that Synopsys did not reserve a booth for 56DAC in Las Vegas ...

    Biggest Challenge of Adoption of 3D IC Technology-michelin-movin-autonomous-driving.jpg

    When it comes to autonomous mobility – things are changing awfully fast. A "deep dive" workshop at Michelin's Movin' On 2018 event in Montreal (concluding today) dug into the issue revealing hopes and anxieties shared by executives culled from a wide range of industry constituencies. The overall sense of the room was that autonomous technology is coming - perhaps sooner than some think ...

    It was 1976 when distinguished scholars Whitfield Diffie and Martin Hellman published the first practical method of establishing a shared secret-key over an authenticated communications channel without using a prior shared secret. The Diffie-Hellman methodology became known as Public Key Infrastructure or PKI.

    That was a long time ago. Do you ...
