    Tackling large-scale SoC and FPGA prototyping debug challenges-gm-stop-downsizing.jpg

    General Motors CEO Mary Barra is known for a number of quotes one of which is: “My father was a die maker for 39 years, so I had a basic understanding of the automobile industry and what the manufacturing world was like, just from the opportunity to spend time with him, just talking, because he was a car buff.” One has to wonder what Mary’s dad would have so say about the latest news out of GM.

    Article: No EUV before 7nm?-auto-cyber-security.jpg

    Auto makers have long relied on security by obscurity to get away with not defining or adhering to proper cyber security hygiene. This rationalization had been embraced in the context of low levels of automotive hacking mainly carried out by enthusiasts or so-called “white hat” or ethical hackers.

    Succeeding at managing cybersecurity risks is tremendously difficult even for seasoned professionals. To make situations worse, poorly suited people are often chosen to lead security organizations, bringing about disastrous results. This has contributed to weaker risk postures for organizations and the rapid turnover in cybersecurity leadership.

    I am unhappy to report that the industry has a pervasive problem that few want to discuss: a propensity to enlist inexperienced or unsuitable professionals to lead ...

    Article: Sanjiv Kaul is New CEO of Calypto-you-cruise-you-lose.jpg

    General Motors has two media magnets in CEO Mary Barra and Cruise Automation founder Kyle Vogt. Barra is praised for boosting GM profitability while streamlining operations and making strategic investments. Vogt, the beneficiary of one of those investments – in his autonomous vehicle technology company – embodies GM’s aspirations for tech leadership even as he burns cash at upwards of $200M/quarter.

    Article: Going to DAC 2013 in Austin? The Country's Best Barbecue is a 20 Minute Walk-you-can-t-get-there-here.jpg

    One of the companies I met at ARM TechCon was Dover Microsystems who offer a product in embedded security. You might ask why we need yet another security solution. Surely we’re overloaded with security options from ARM and many others in the forms of TEEs, secure ...
