Metaverse Gartner 2022

Any new technology involves a certain amount of ambiguity and myths. In the case of the Metaverse, however, many of the myths have been exaggerated and facts were misrepresented, while the Metaverse vision will take years to mature fully, the building blocks to begin this process are already in place. Key hardware and software … Read More

Electronic System

We need more and more complex chips and SoCs for all new applications that use the latest technologies like AI. For example, Apple’s 5nm SoC A14 features 6-core CPU, 4 core-GPU and 16-core neural engine capable of 11 trillion operations per second, which incorporates 11.8 billion transistors, and AWS 7nm 64-bit Graviton2 custom… Read More

Polymorphism min

Rich Edelman of Siemens EDA recently released a paper on this topic. I’ve known Rich since our days together back in National Semi. And I’ve always been impressed by his ability to make a complex topic more understandable to us lesser mortals. He tackles a tough one in this paper – a complex concept (polymorphism) in a complex domain… Read More

System Technology Co Optimization STCO

3D IC technology development started many years ago well before the slowing down of Moore’s law benefits became a topic of discussion. The technology was originally leveraged for stacking functional blocks with high-bandwidth buses between them. Memory manufacturers and other IDMs were the ones to typically leverage this … Read More

Time for NHTSA to Get Serious

In the final season of “The Sopranos,” Christopher Multisanti (played by Michael Imperioli) and Anthony Soprano (James Gandolfini) lose control of their black Cadillac Escalade and go tumbling off a two-lane rural highway and down a hill. Christopher dies (spoiler alert) with an assist from Tony, before Tony calls “911” for… Read More


Spot Pairs for Measurement of Secondary Electron Blur in EUV and E-beam Resists

Spot Pairs for Measurement of Secondary Electron Blur in EUV and E-beam Resists

Spot Pairs for Measurement of Secondary Electron Blur in EUV

There is growing awareness that EUV lithography is actually an imaging technique that heavily depends on the distribution of secondary electrons in the resist layer [1-5]. The stochastic aspects should be traced not only to the discrete number of photons absorbed but also the electrons that are subsequently released. The electron… Read More

What is Your Ground Truth

When my son bought a 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV a couple of years ago, I was excited. I wanted to see what the Xevo-supplied Marketplace (contextually driven ads and offers) looked like and I was also curious as to what clever navigation integration GM was offering.

I was swiftly disappointed to discover that Xevo Marketplace was not… Read More
