    Article: Is The Fabless Semiconductor Ecosystem at Risk?-dsrc-road-ridiculous.jpg

    Stupid has a home and that home is in Macomb County, Michigan. It is here, we learn from The Detroit News, that General Motors Co. has decided to test the use of wireless technology in conjunction with roadside QR code signs to transmit vital traffic information to passing cars. Those messages will only be communicated ...

    This was my 34th DAC, yes 34. It is a shame blogging did not exist back then because I would have liked to have read thoughts from my eager young mind, or maybe not. The first thing that struck me this year is the great content. Before DAC I review the ...

    Article: Dear Santa, please bring technology that brings us together-ransomware-crushes-company.jpg

    A South Korean web hosting company struggles for survival after agreeing to pay a ransomware extortion of $1 million to hackers.

    New Record for Ransomware
    Nayana, the South Korean web hosting firm, suffered a ransomware attack that resulted in 153 infected Linux servers. The resulting data that was encrypted by ...

    Article: How much SRAM proportion could be integrated in SoC at 20 nm and below?-austemper-tool-suite-min.jpg

    It takes courage and perhaps even a little insanity to start a new EDA venture these days – unless you have a decently differentiated value proposition in a hot market. One company that caught my eye, Austemper, seems to measure ...

    Article: Introduction to FinFET technology Part I-amazon-eating-whole-foods.jpg

    I doubt that Google and Microsoft ever worried about the prospect that a book retailer, Amazon, would come to lead one of their highest-growth markets: cloud services. And I doubt that Apple ever feared that Amazon’s Alexa would eat Apple’s Siri for lunch.

    For that matter, the taxi industry couldn’t have ...

    Article: Designing with FinFETs-matrix-min.jpeg

    A little self-indulgence for the season, to lighten the relentless diet of DAC updates. I found a recent Wired article based on a TED talk on consciousness. The speaker drew a conclusion that consciousness was not something that could ever be captured in a machine and was a unique ...

    Article: "Death of Equities" = A Silicon Valley Revival-ai-end-jobs.jpg

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) is advancing so rapidly that even its developers are being caught off guard. Google co-founder Sergey Brin said in Davos, Switzerland, in January that it “touches every single one of our main projects, ranging from search to photos to ads … everything we do … it definitely surprised me, even ...

    I thought to share with you a tangible view on how IoT is transforming all industries as opposed to discussing yet again the familiar IoT use case:

    Article: Andy Bryant Will Now Lead Intel Into The Foundry Era-design-ip-2016-min.jpg

    Despite the strong consolidation in the semiconductor industry, the Design IP market is still growing: from $3 billion in 2015 to $3.4 billion in 2016. That’s why the DAC IP Committee has organized this panel, titled “The IP Paradox: Growing Business Despite Consolidations” (you can see more on the events page:

    Isn't a wire just interconnect?-54dac_logo_square_medium-min.png

    DAC is coming, next week, in beautiful downtown Austin at the Convention Center. I’ll be there Monday and Tuesday, running around the exhibit area. If you haven’t yet got your plane and hotel tickets, drop everything and start looking. I’m guessing this will be as popular as it always ...
