A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to 5G Cars

Prior to the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic car makers were inching toward putting their 5G connectivity plans into action.  There was a growing recognition, at the time, that no one wanted to miss the 5G car boat – and no car maker would want to be stuck selling 4G cars in a 5G world.

The onset of the pandemic was a shock to the system.

Webinar Samtec teams with Otava and Avnet to Tame mmWave Design

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 aboutRead More

Digital Design Technology Symposium!
by Daniel Nenni on 10-07-2020 at 6:00 am

Synopsys Digital Design Symposium 2020
Virtual events are coming fast and furious. Even though we are sheltering there is still the need to pick and choose carefully because time really is big money inside the semiconductor design ecosystem, absolutely.

Synopsys virtual events are high on my list for three reasons:

  1. They are very well organized and professionally done

Arm Neoverse. Central to NVIDIA Strategy?

Arm Neoverse. Central to NVIDIA Strategy?
by Bernard Murphy on 10-06-2020 at 6:00 am

Arm Neoverse

I’ve covered Arm Neoverse updates a few times already, a span of products with application from the cloud through infrastructure to the edge. Logical strategy of course but Arm has been delivering some impressive wins suggesting this is more than just a loose marketing concept. Overlap with NVIDIA in datacenters and supercomputing… Read More
