    One of the other blog worthy analyst presentations at ISS 2018 was by Len Jelinek of IHS. Len is my kind of analyst, he spent 28 years in the semiconductor industry before going to the dark side so he knows what he is talking about. Len’s presentation on Global Semiconductor Market Trends is action packed so I will be doing ...

    EE Times story labeling everything solid state as quantum is questionable-what-gm-can-learn-tesla-min.jpg

    General Motors has had wireless connections to its cars for more than 21 years, thanks to Project Beacon, better known as OnStar, now operated as Global Connected Consumer Experience. OnStar has likely saved hundreds of lives, if not thousands, by summoning emergency responders to the scenes of crashes where airbags deployed.

    To this day, ...

    Article: A Brief History of Synopsys-dac55_logo_tagline_black.jpg

    DAC 2018 will take place in San Francisco in June (24 to 28) and you have a fantastic opportunity to present a paper in the IP track! In fact, the deadline has been extended to January 30th to submit your proposal.

    Let’s make it clear: you are not expected to send the completed paper by this date, just the following:

    • The title of the presentation
    • Abstract of 100 words
    • Category (a list is provided

    Spoiler alert, the answer is none!

    Let me take you back to the beginning to explain that answer.


    For the sake of this discussion, I will reduce a complex IoT solution to three fundamental blocks:


    • IoT node
    • IoT Gateway
    • IoT Server

    The IoT node is a sensor that converts analog, physical world context into digital data. The node has to have a processor to run an IoT protocol stack and a radio to connect to the network. The technology ...

    As a car enthusiast and a semiconductor professional the latest automotive trends are of great interest to me. My father raced sports cars and I remember being part of the pit crew (but not really) and impatiently waiting for my turn to drive. The years before my 16th birthday ...

    Facebook’s recent acknowledgment that social media may be making its users feel bad in some cases is a significant milestone. So far, the technology industry hardly has talked about the downsides of their products. Now a realization seems to be setting in that perhaps something has gone wrong along the way.

    No, not the news network though I confess I am curious to see how many initial hits that title attracts. Then I clarify that I’m talking about convolutional neural nets, and my would-be social media fame evaporates. Oh well – for those few of you still with me, CNNs ...
