The auto industry isn’t for the faint of heart in late 2022. As Deloitte recently explained, chip shortages, supply chain bottlenecks, unpredictable consumer demand and the industry overhaul mandated by the rise of EVs are all creating unprecedented turmoil in this key sector. One particularly pressing challenge is the ongoing… Read More
Using the right tool for the job can be extremely important. Well, maybe not in the case of the famed chef Martin Yan who is notorious for using just one knife—a razor sharp wide blade cleaver that doubles as a spatula—for preparing anything and everything he cooks. For the rest of us, though, the right tools can make all the difference.… Read More
mmWave design has traditionally been a boutique technology used in satellite and defense applications. Lately that’s changing. It turns out the complex, high frequency capabilities of mmWave technology are a key enabler for the 5G wireless networks being deployed today. I discussed some of this backstory in a recent post about… Read More
Back in September 2019 semiengineering.com published an article called “The Hidden Potential of Test Engineers”. This article was of particular interest to me having previously worked as a mixed signal test development engineer.
Within the article Carl Moore explained that test engineers have the potential to increase revenue.… Read More

Embedded non-volatile memory (eNVM) plays an essential role in most systems and SoCs. eFLASH has found its way into a wide range of devices, including automotive, industrial, IoT and those in a mixture of other markets. NAND Flash has proven to be a workhorse in all of these areas. For instance, MCUs use them for code and data storage… Read More
Whether it’s the solid-state disk in your laptop, IoT/automotive hardware or edge-based AI, embedded non-volatile memory (eNVM) is a critical building block for these and many other applications. The workhorse technology for this capability has typically been NOR flash (eFlash), but a problem looms as eFlash presents challenges… Read More
