    Article: Apple Will NOT Manufacture SoCs at Intel-auro-robotics-jpg

    Some days it seems like the world is obsessed with autonomous vehicles. No one really understands why. Surveys tell us that consumers are both interested in and repelled by self-driving cars. What’s missing is the business model – the commercial ...

    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 ...

    Article: Intel Taps The Debt Market: Should They Go Private?-facebook-equifax-jpg

    The theft of an estimated 143 million Americans' personal details in a data breach of consumer-credit reporting agency Equifax and the Russian hack of the U.S. elections through Facebook had one thing in common: they were facilitated by the absence of legal protection for personal data. Though the U.S. Constitution ...

    Article: Variation-Aware Design: A Hands-on Field Guide-calma-demo-room-1980-jpg

    One of the important changes that happen between 1984 and 1988 is the hardware platforms development. Calma evolved, mainframe S140 with 2 combined monitors per terminal in S280 with 2 individual monitors per terminal. This meant that from noisy and darker rooms we move to more quiet and lighted rooms. We ...

    Plus args in System Verilog is Plus point !!-oski-technology-decoding-formal-club-enabling-formal-sign-off_2-e1387508556106-min-jpg

    Last week I sat in on Oski’s latest in a series of “Decoding Formal” sessions. Judging by my first experience, they plan and manage these events very well. Not too long (~3 hours of talks), good food (DishDash), good customer content, a good forward-looking topic and a very entertaining wrap-up talk.

    It really is an exciting time in semiconductors. The benchmarks on the new Apple A11 SoC and the Nvidia GPU are simply amazing. Even though Moore’s Law is slowing, the resulting chips are improving well above and beyond expectations, absolutely.

    Article: How Apple Plans to Leverage Intel's Foundry-atoptech-logo-png

    One of the biggest surprises at the TSMC OIP Forum last week was the reappearance of bankrupt EDA vendor ATopTech. I spoke with former ATopTech CEO and now Avatar IS President Jue-Hsien Chern at OIP. As a survivor of several EDA legal battles myself, I understand what ATopTech went through and I am thoroughly ...

    Article: How Apple Plans to Leverage Intel's Foundry-brcair-min-jpg

    I often use this space to report on industry events I have attended and what I have learned at them. So, this article will be a slight, but not complete, departure from this. I am reporting on my experiences at Burning Man this year. For the unacquainted, Burning Man is a temporary city of around 70,000 people in a remote desert-like dry lake bed in Northern Nevada. The Black ...
