    Which is better for a fresh graduate, academia or industry?-deconstructing-deep-learning.jpg

    There’s been a lot of discussion of late about deep learning technology and its impact on many markets and products. A lot of the technology under discussion is basically hardware implementations of neural networks, a concept that’s been around for a while.

    how to "Formally" verify arithmetic blocks such as 16 bit+ adders and multipliers-supply-voltage-variation-min.jpg

    At Intel back in the late 1970's we wanted to know what process corner each DRAM chip and wafer was trending at so we included a handful of test transistors in the scribe lines between the active die. Having test transistors meant that we could do a quick electrical test at wafer probe time to measure the P and N channel transistor characteristics, providing valuable insight for the specific ...

    Article: Intel 22nm SoC Process Exposed!-flash-enabled-products-min.jpg

    When I started dabbling in hardware again for fun using Arduinos about five years ago, it had been a long time since I had played with microprocessor chips. The epiphany for me was seeing how easy it was to load programs onto the onboard flash on something ...

    Article: The Semiconductor Landscape - II-soc-performance-verification-automation-min.jpg

    Performance verification is among the most challenging of objectives in any SoC verification plan. It’s difficult to start effectively until quite late in the development cycle, at which point you don’t have a lot of time left to develop extensive performance-oriented testbenches. So many teams adapt functional tests to this purpose, typically a less than ...

    Article: An FPGA Design Flow with Aldec Tools-broadcom-qualcomm.jpg

    The war of words continues between Broadcom and Qualcomm and the stock analysts still seem to be split on the merger. Please note that Broadcom is proposing to merge with Qualcomm instead of a tender offer which is what Qualcomm has proposed for the acquisition on NXP. Same result but two very different approaches. Another ...

    Article: Phablet, e-reader, Nexus-quantum-computers-may-more-imminent-threat-than-ai.jpg

    Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking and others have been warning about runway artificial intelligence, but there may be a more imminent threat: quantum computing. It could pose a greater burden on businesses than the Y2K computer bug did toward the end of the ’90s.

    Quantum computers are straight ...

    Article: A Comparison of SemiWiki and DeepChip-55dac-silicon-art-show.jpg

    This year the 55th annual Design Automation Conference is in San Francisco and the Silicon and Technology Art Show, one of my favorite DAC events, is back! Favorite because it's something my beautiful wife and I can share. She is very artistic and has an eye for colors and I actually know what the art is so we make a ...

    Article: The Semiconductor Landscape - II-compaction.jpg

    I am very sorry but I have to break the flow of sharing initiatives, to reiterate the reason for these articles and maybe amplify the message these articles should promote.

    I got a few inquiries from LinkedIn connections, who read the previous articles, with a very interesting point of view. This proves that after 5 articles ...

    Which way the semiconductor industry is going?-figure-1.jpg

    I enjoyed reading Eric Esteve’s article “French Tech at CES, 2nd country after USA with 274 Start-Up at Eureka Park!” It brought back happy memories of my time at EVE until Synopsys purchased it in 2012. Here is another intriguing story by a French startup named VSORA and ...

    Article: Intel's New Tablet Strategy Brings Ivy Bridge to the Forefront-future-education-virtual.jpg

    Massive open online courses (MOOCs) were supposed to bring a revolution in education. But they haven’t lived up to expectations. We have been putting educators in front of cameras and shooting video — just as the first TV shows did with radio stars, microphone in hand. This is not ...
