    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 ...

    Article: ASIC Prototyping: Dini Group and Tektronix-nvidia-handles-data-senate-care.jpg

    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. The reality is that the power of the legislators and the microphones and the cameras must be respected and, consequently, words must be chosen carefully.

    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 ...
