    Article: Apple and Samsung Do It Again-ces-2019-robotaxis-vs.-micro-transit.jpg

    Attendees of CES 2019 arriving at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport next week will have four options for getting to their hotels: a shuttle offering two rides for the price of one (out and back for about $15); a taxi offering one ride for the price of two (about $30), a Lyft or Uber offering one ride for the price of one ride (about $15), or a rental car. ...

    Article: Navigating the new patent landscape-let-ai-benchmark-wars-begin.jpg

    Why benchmark competition enables breakthrough innovation in AI. Two years ago I inadvertently started a war. And I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. While wars fought on the battle field of human misery and death never have winners, this “war” is different. It is a competition ...

    Article: Apple and Samsung Do It Again-2019-year-electrification.jpg

    After two years of wrestling with and at least partially resolving fraud charges over its “defeat device” to manipulate emissions testing results, Volkswagen emerged in 2018 as the flag-bearer for electrification in the U.S. The company also concluded 2018 as the largest producer of passenger cars in the world.

    Article: Cadence Sigrity, Together At Last-56dac.jpg

    As I mentioned in a previous post, the big drama at last year’s Design Automation Conference was the acquisition of the Electronic Systems Design Alliance (formerly EDAC) by SEMI, the owner of the SEMICON West Conference franchise. The plan is to add an ES Design West wing to the SEMICON West conference in San Francisco next year. DAC is in June, SEMICON West is in July, thus the conflict. ...

    Article: Cosmic Circuits acquisition by Cadence: IP battle with Synopsys has officially started!-dvcon.jpg

    As 2018 wraps up this month it's time to start thinking and planning for 2019, and if you work in the Silicon Valley then you'll want to consider adding the 31st annual DVCon event planned for February 25-28 in San Jose. Surveys have shown for some time now that verification tasks actually take up more time on ...

    Article: No EUV before 7nm?-iedm-2018.jpg

    Hello, my name is Daniel Nenni and I am a semiconductor conference addict. I just can’t seem to get enough. The semiconductor ecosystem is very wide now and moves so quickly it is nearly impossible to keep up without constant conference attendance. ...

    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.

    Research Study on Circuit Pads-volvo-car-less-better-than-clueless.jpg

    Sweden has embraced the movement toward a cashless society with banks no longer taking cash deposits and retailers, like Ikea, experimenting with cashlessness. Perhaps taking a cue from the Swedish financial sector, Volvo Cars last week revealed its plans for a car-less stand at this week’s L.A. ...

    Article: ARMs in the Clouds-9-iot-predictions-2019.jpg

    By 2020, the Internet of Things (IoT) is predicted to generate an additional $344B in revenues, as well as to drive $177B in cost reductions. IoT and smart devices are already increasing performance metrics of major US-based factories. They are in the hands of employees, covering routine management issues and boosting their productivity by 40-60% [1].

    The following list of predictions (Figure 1) explores the state of IoT in 2019 and covering IoT impact on many aspects business and technology including Digital Transformation, Blockchain, ...

    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.
