    Article: A Comparison of SemiWiki and DeepChip-challenges-blockchain-iot.jpg

    The Internet of Things (IoT) is an ecosystem of ever-increasing complexity; it’s the next wave of innovation that will humanize every object in our life, and it is the next level of automation for every object we use. IoT is bringing more and more things into the digital fold every day, which will likely make IoT a multi-trillion dollar industry in the near future. To understand the scale of interest in the internet of things (#IoT) just check how many conferences, articles, and studies ...

    Verification engineers are hearing a lot about the Portable Stimulus Standard (PSS), and for good reason because it could potentially save them time and effort in doing their jobs much better. In order to get the big picture on what PSS is all about I contacted Adnan Hamid, founder and CEO of Breker Verification Systems, because he's been involved with the formation of PSS since its inception.

    Article: Apple Will NOT Manufacture SoCs at Intel-why-cars-arent-safe-planes.jpg

    People are often confused and amazed that airline travel is so much safer than travel by bus, rail or car. The safety of air travel is truly miraculous, particularly in comparison to the disastrous history of terrestrial travel.

    This reality was highlighted by the latest fatality data released by the U.S. Department of Transportation revealing that annual highway fatalities ...
