    Tackling large-scale SoC and FPGA prototyping debug challenges-ip-security-min.jpeg

    I recently learned that Accellera has formed an IP security working group. My first reaction was “Great, we really need that!”. My second reaction was “But I have so many questions.” Security in the systems world is ...

    Article: How GLOBALFOUNDRIES is Differentiating in 2013-how-technology-hacking-love.jpg

    Go into any bar in New York City or San Francisco (or increasingly Mumbai and Sydney) popular with the younger crowd and you will find a curious transformation. The majority of the patrons spend at least as much time checking their phones as they do checking out potential mates or talking to people they are ...

    Article: Double Patterning for IC Design, Extraction and Signoff-wally-rhines-ai.jpg

    Last month I attended the 2018 U.S. Executive Forum where Wally Rhines was one of the keynotes. I was also lucky enough to have lunch with Wally afterwards and talk about his presentation in more detail and he sent me his slides which are attached to the end of this blog.

    The nice thing about Wally’s presentations is that they are not company specific while a lot of keynotes are company pitches in ...

    I'm a long time reader of SemiWiki; almost from the start. I've sometimes been a passionate commenter but as some of you may have noticed my activity lately on the forum was lower. One of the reasons is a project I am working on and I ...

    Article: Apple Makes More on iPhone Than Samsung on Everything-globalfoundries-umc.jpg

    One of the interesting rumors in Taiwan last week was the possibility that UMC and GF will do a deal to merge or UMC will buy some GF fabs. I have talked to quite a few industry experts about it and will talk to more this week at the GSA US Executive Forum (more at the end). The US Executive Forum is what they call a C Level event which means it is invitation only and expensive.

    This year’s program looks very good. Notice the heavy AI emphasis, as I have said many times before AI ...

    Facebook’s woes are spreading globally, first from the U.S., then to Europe and now in Asia. A study by researchers at the University of Warwick in the U.K. has conclusively established that Facebook has been fanning the flames of hatred in Germany. The study found that the rich and the poor, the educated and the uneducated, and those living ...

    Here we go again. A hurricane is closing in on the U.S. East Coast and General Motors' OnStar connected car team - now part of something called Global Connected Consumer Experience - is AWOL.

    While mandatory evacuations ...

    This is an ongoing conversation inside the semiconductor ecosystem, especially when I am traveling. Everyone wants to know what is going on here or there and since I just returned from Taiwan I will post my thoughts. Last week was also ...

    Article: Battling SoCs: QCOM vs NVDA vs Samsung-what-world-shouldnt-learn-silicon-valley.jpg

    Learn all you can from the entrepreneurs of Silicon Valley but don’t become like them. This was my advice to a group of 91 Indian students who are visiting here on a program sponsored by Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. In a talk I gave this weekend, I encouraged them to take ...
