    Article: Is debugging a task, or a continuous process?-atom-min.jpeg

    If you have checked out any of my previous blogs on quantum computing (QC), you may think I am not a fan. That isn’t entirely correct. I’m not a fan of hyperbolic extrapolations of the potential, but there are some applications ...

    Article: Intel's x86 - Foundry Breakup Comes into View-gsa-munich-min.jpg

    I plan to attend to the GSA European Forum in Munich (April 15-16), so I first looked at the event description and at the impressive speakers list. In such event, the goal is at 50% to listen, and 50% to network with the speakers and the other attendant. The center of gravity is clearly semiconductor, but the event involved speakers from ...

    Article: TSMC ♥ Cadence-fpga-landscape-update-2019.jpg

    In 2015 Intel acquired Altera for $16.7B changing one of the most heated rivalries (Xilinx vs Altera) the fabless semiconductor ecosystem has ever seen. Prior to the acquisition the FPGA market was fairly evenly split between ...

    It wasn't enough that Lyft and Uber introduced the world to the concept of taxi and limousine drivers committing suicide, we now have Lyft and Uber drivers committing suicide. In other words, it's not enough that the business models of these companies are suicidal, they are actually visiting suicide ...

    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 ...

    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 ...
