    Machine learning (ML) is already making its way into EDA tools and flows, but the majority of announcements have been around implementation, especially in guiding toward improved timing and area. This is a pretty obvious place to start; ...

    If there was ever a time that ethics should be formally applied to technology, it is with the emergence of Artificial Intelligence. Yet most of the big AI companies struggle with what should seem a simple task: defining ethics for the use of their products. Without the underpinnings ...

    Two reasons to make the switch from PADS Logic to the new DxDesigner-crossing-chasm-min.jpeg

    I assume you know the Geoffrey Moore “crossing the chasm” concept, jumping from early stage enthusiasts trying your product because they’ll try anything new, to expanding to a mainstream and intrinsically more critical audience ...

    Article: Can Japan Regain Semiconductor Leadership?-fail-operational-min.jpg

    Standards committees, the military and governmental organizations are drawn to acronyms as moths are drawn to a flame, though few of them seem overly concerned with the elegance or memorability of these handles. One such example is SOTIF – Safety of the ...

    It is said that it will cost as much as $600M to develop a 5nm chip. At that price, only a few companies can afford to play, and with that amount of cash in, innovation is severely limited.

    At the same time, there is a stampede in the artificial intelligence (AI) market where around 60 startups have appeared, many of which have already raised $60M or more. $12B was raised for AI startups in 2017 and, according to International Data Corporation (IDC), is expected to grow to $57B by 2021. Most of these are going after the datacenter, which is necessary to get the required ...

    Article: FinFET Design Challenges at 14nm and 10nm-china-government-strategy-semiconductor-market.jpg

    Last week we warned of a further down leg due to China trade. We were surprised how quickly our prediction came true as it appears we are now in the midst of giving back all the upside built in to stocks based on a peaceful resolution of the trade conflict which obviously isn't happening.

    Many of the semi stocks we cover were down anywhere from 3% to 5% or more on Monday and had a partial bounce back on Tuesday. There is likely more ...

    System Verilog : Final means Final !-ic-systems-era.jpg

    One of my favorite EDA disruptions is the Siemens acquisition of Mentor, pure genius. Joe Sawicki now runs the Mentor IC EDA business for Siemens so we will be seeing him at more conferences and events than ever before. Joe did a very nice keynote at the recent U2U conference ...

    By now you have probably realized that 5G is a lot more than an incremental change from previous 3G and 4G cellular technology. For instance, 5G will be used to connect our phones in completely new ways, such as with microcells in urban areas using ...

    As the number one 56thDAC supporting portal we will publish what's happening in the conference, on the exhibit floor, and outside activities. The SemiWiki bloggers will be out in full force with live coverage and behind the scenes looks. Remember, SemiWiki bloggers are actual semiconductor professionals with hundreds of years of combined experience. There is no media team out there that loves DAC more than we do, absolutely. ...

    At the risk of highlighting my abundant lack of expertise in the domain, I had always viewed EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) compliance and testing as one of those back-end exercises that can only be done on the real device and depends ...
