FPGA Prototyping for AI Product Development

FPGA Prototyping for AI Product Development
by Randy Smith on 06-21-2019 at 8:00 am

I recently wrote about The Implications of the Rise of AI/ML in the Cloud. In that article, I wrote about my expectation that the rapidly growing AI market will lead to the accelerated use of high-level synthesis (HLS), prototyping, and emulation. In this article, I will focus on the prototyping portion of that – specifically FPGA… Read More


ARM Spins New IP for Client Applications

ARM Spins New IP for Client Applications
by Bernard Murphy on 06-20-2019 at 5:00 am

Arm is a machine. They crank out new products in a wide range of categories, Project Trillium for AI, Neoverse for infrastructure, their Automotive Enhanced line and the Pelion IoT platform. And in each they have a regular beat of new product introductions following roadmaps they have already laid out. Not that you’d expect any … Read More


Synopsys Low Power Workshop Offers Breadth and Depth

Synopsys Low Power Workshop Offers Breadth and Depth
by Bernard Murphy on 06-18-2019 at 5:00 am

Synopsys seems to particularly excel at these events, whether in half-day tutorials at conferences or, as in this case, in a full-day on-site workshop. You might think there’s not much that can be added in this domain, other than to bring low-power newbies up to speed, but you’d be wrong. This event set the stage with surveys on needs… Read More

The Implications of the Rise of AI/ML in the Cloud
by Randy Smith on 06-14-2019 at 10:00 am

Recently, Daniel Nenni blogged on the presentation Wally Rhines gave at #56th DAC. Daniel provided a great summary, but I want to dive into a portion of the presentation in more detail. I love Wally’s presentations, but sometimes you cannot absorb the wealth of information he provides when you initially see it. It’s… Read More


Intelligence in the Fog

Intelligence in the Fog
by Bernard Murphy on 06-12-2019 at 5:00 am

By now, you should know about AI in the cloud for natural language processing, image ID, recommendation, etc, etc (thanks to Google, Facebook, AWS, Baidu and several others) and AI on the edge for collision avoidance, lane-keeping, voice recognition and many other applications. But did you know about AI in the fog? First, a credit… Read More


Wally Rhines Keynote @ #56thDAC!

Wally Rhines Keynote @ #56thDAC!
by Daniel Nenni on 06-11-2019 at 5:00 am

One of the perks of blogging on SemiWiki is the events you get to attend for FREE and the amazing people you get to meet and Wally Rhines is certainly one of those people. You will not find a more intelligent, innovative, and genuinely nice group of people in my experience. Having traveled the world meeting thousands of people I can tell… Read More


Cadence on 5G Intelligent System Design #56thDAC

Cadence on 5G Intelligent System Design #56thDAC
by Daniel Nenni on 06-10-2019 at 10:00 am

As much as I love all EDA vendors I must say Cadence did the best DAC this year. Great booth, great location, excellent content, and of course a great party. The 5G presentation in the Cadence booth by Ian Dennison was of great interest to me as I am still trying to wrap my head around this whole 5G thing. I was able to meet with Ian privately… Read More


Visual SLAM at the Edge

Visual SLAM at the Edge
by Bernard Murphy on 06-06-2019 at 5:00 am

SLAM – simultaneous localization and mapping – is critical for mobile robotics and VR/AR headsets among other applications, all of which typically operate indoors where GPS or inertial measurement units are either ineffective or insufficiently accurate. SLAM is a chicken and egg problem in which the system needs to map its environment… Read More


#56DAC – Machine Learning and it’s impact on the Digital Design Engineer

#56DAC – Machine Learning and it’s impact on the Digital Design Engineer
by Daniel Payne on 06-05-2019 at 12:05 am

Tuesday for lunch at #56DAC I caught up to the AI/ML experts at the panel discussion hosted by Cadence. Our moderator was the affable and knowledgable Prof.  Andrew Kahng from UC San Diego. Attendance was good, and interest was quite high as measured by the number of audience questions. I learned that EDA tools that use heuristics… Read More


Will a Lack of Ethics Doom Artificial Intelligence

Will a Lack of Ethics Doom Artificial Intelligence
by Matthew Rosenquist on 05-31-2019 at 5:00 am

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 of a moral backbone, powerful tools often become… Read More
