    Article: Intel's x86 - Foundry Breakup Comes into View-lyft-auto-industry-annihilation.jpg

    The good news is that Lyft’s initial public offering is over-subscribed, according to published reports. That also happens to be the bad news.

    Like its disruptive corporate kin – Waymo, Uber, and Tesla Motors – Lyft is out to creatively destroy the automotive industry. In the process, the company is set on a course for its own annihilation – and investors ...

    Last week I attended the first Verification 3.0 Innovation Summit held at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara along with about 90 other interested engineers and former engineers (meaning marketing and sales people, like me). There was a great ...

    Article: Intel's x86 - Foundry Breakup Comes into View-automotive-self-certification-insufficient.jpg

    The crash of Ethiopia Air Flight 961 may have a negative impact on the development of autonomous vehicle technology. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is now forced to reconsider the “self-certification” process used for the Boeing 737 Max 8 airplane involved.

    Self-driving car developers have been seeking the same self-certification for their own systems. The ...

    Article: Intel's x86 - Foundry Breakup Comes into View-daas-iot.jpg

    There is an emerging market in the world of IoT, and service providers are yet to realize the potential of it. With x-as-a-Service — x taking the shape of either software, platform, or infrastructure — already in play, it is only a matter of time before Device-as-a-Service ...

    Article: Modeling TSV, IBIS-AMI and SERDES with HSPICE-i-love-dac-min.jpg

    The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is the must-see, annual event for semiconductor professionals that design chips, use EDA software, and buy semiconductor IP. Like all conferences there's an entrance fee, but for the 11th year now you can get a free pass, courtesy of three sponsors: Avatar Integrated Systems, ClioSoft, Truechip. The free pass is part of ...

    Article: Cadence ♥ ClioSoft!-i-finally-understand-brexit.jpg

    I have gazed across the Pond in bafflement over Brexit until two days ago. I now grasp the depth and breadth of British anxiety over political and legal ties to Brussels and it boils down to regulatory over-reach.

    Yesterday, the European Commission announced that it had adopted new rules “stepping up the deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) on Europe's roads.” What the commission has actually done is to create ...

    Why I stopped "writing" RTL-cmp-min.jpg

    On SemiWiki we often talk about bleeding-edge technology like 7nm, 5nm or even 3nm, but for analog IC designs there's a low-cost alternative to getting your ideas validated and prototyped without taking out a multi-million dollar loan, and that's through the use of Multi-Project Wafers (MPW). Starting with a mature ...

    Article: Why IP Must Be Defended-lyft-ipo-paints-perilous-profitless-picture.jpg

    Lyft’s S1 filing for its IPO is a sobering read, as such documents often are, requiring, as they do, the full disclosure of current financial circumstances and, everyone’s favorite: risk factors. Lyft identifies 18 risk factors (below) which could interfere with the long-term success of the operation. I think there are more. ...
