    Which way the semiconductor industry is going?-silicon-valley-innovation.jpg

    Silicon Valley well exemplifies the saying “The more things change, the more they stay the same”. Very little has changed over the past decade, with the Valley still mired in myth and stale stereotype. Ask any older entrepreneurs or women who have tried to get financing; they will tell you of the walls they keep hitting. Speak to VCs, and you will realize that they still consider themselves kings and kingmakers.

    With China’s innovation ...

    Article: Mobile SoCs: Two Cores are Better Than Four?-taxi-bots.jpg

    From sexual harassment, to surveilling regulators, to Uber drivers and taxi drivers committing suicide (because they can't make a living) the pervasive creepiness of Uber continues to spread while the means of corraling this societal phenomenon creeps steadily forward like ...

    Article: Mobile SoCs: Two Cores are Better Than Four?-aging-drivers-autonomous-cars.jpg

    Florida is poised to surpass California and Arizona as the leader in autonomous driving development thanks to an aggressive legislative agenda that began in 2012 and direct engagement with autonomous car developers. The state has good reasons for fostering automated driving given that it is the second largest state in the U.S. with the third highest number of highway ...

    Which way the semiconductor industry is going?-isaac-newton.jpeg

    I commented recently on limitations in deep learning (DL), one of which is the inability to incorporate prior knowledge, like basic laws of mathematics or physics. Typically, understanding in DL must be inferred from the training set, ...

    Article: Wall Street Does NOT Know Semiconductors!-saint-elon-musk.jpg

    The Reverend Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, held forth to his flock on yesterday’s earnings call. Musk described at length his efforts to lead the company out of production hell. The lengthy session highlighted the challenges facing the company, which posted its greatest quarterly loss ever, and was emblematic of the typical high-flying ...

    Which way the semiconductor industry is going?-20180624_144026-min.jpg

    Another year, another DAC, and last month it was #55DAC in SFO and the first thing that I noticed was that the event was no longer located in the traditional North or South Halls, rather we were in the smaller, Moscone West on two floors, almost like a 3D FinFET. Checkin to get my badge was highly automated and oh so fast, well done.

    Article: Mobile SoCs: Two Cores are Better Than Four?-iot-image-min.jpeg

    There is some interesting work reported this month in the Communications of the ACM, on novel sensing, multi-purpose uses for existing sensors and new ideas in agricultural IoT. The article opens on a method called Hitch-hike to use back-scatter methods for communication; ...

    Article: Cadence, Synopsys, and Mentor on FinFETs-deep-learning-jul-2018-min.jpeg

    Deep learning (DL) has become the oracle of our age – the universal technology we turn to for answers to almost any hard problem. This is not surprising; its strength in image and speech recognition, language processing and multiple other domains amaze and shock us, to the point that we’re now debating AI singularities. ...

    Article: Buying DDRn Controller IP AND Memory Model to the same IP vendor gives real TTM advantage-morris-chang-me.jpg

    Legend has it that in 1984, Morris Chang was approached by a friend who was looking for money to buy equipment for manufacturing his electronic chip designs. Morris told him to do more homework. When his friend did not return, Morris reached out to him. His friend, it turned out, did not need ...

    Article: Cadence, Synopsys, and Mentor on FinFETs-moscone-center-west.jpg

    Driving into DAC on Sunday afternoon was a chore since Gay Pride week was finishing with the Gay Pride Parade. Streets were closed, traffic was crazy, and people were roller skating naked which seems wrong on so many levels. This year the opening ceremonies were in the convention center hallway which ...
