    One Method to Improve Verification Efforts-your-car-sucks-datae.jpg

    "Cars Suck up Data about You. Where Does It All Go?" This was the ill-informed headline in the NYTimes last month. The headline echoes the thoughts of Intel's CEO Brian Krzanich ("Just one autonomous car will use 4,000 GB of data/day" - NetworkWorld) and Barclay's Brian Johnson ("An 'ocean of auto big data' is coming, says Barclays" - CNBC) who asserted that a single autonomous car will be gathering 100 GB of data ...

    Save 15% on EDA tools for AMS design by December 31st-connected-car-data-access-battleground.jpg

    The big news over the weekend was accusations flying in Europe over German car company anti-competitive collusion. While it’s true that European companies of all sorts are able and inclined to legally share information in a manner that is foreign to U.S.-based companies, proving anti-competitive activity will be a high bar for German authorities to clear. One also has to wonder at the motivation for German regulators to blow ...

    When speaking before the U.S. Senate or Congress one has to choose one’s words carefully. The temptation, when one is speaking before legislators and microphones and cameras, is to tell it like it is and speak truth to power.
