Flex Logix Brings AI to the Masses with InferX X1

Flex Logix Brings AI to the Masses with InferX X1
by Mike Gianfagna on 10-22-2020 at 10:00 am

InferX X1 PCIe board

In April, I covered a new AI inference chip from Flex Logix. Called InferX X1, this part had some very promising performance metrics. Rather than the data center, the chip focused on accelerating AI inference at the edge, where power and form factor are key metrics for success. The initial information on the chip was presented at … Read More


Low Energy Intelligence at the Extreme Edge

Low Energy Intelligence at the Extreme Edge

Low Energy Intelligence

Intelligence at the edge is a hot topic these days. Not having to go all the way to the cloud to recognize objects, faces, speech and so on. But I find promoters can be rather fuzzy about what they mean by “the edge”. For many, intelligence at the edge means intelligence closer to the edge than the cloud. In a gateway for example. Not actually… Read More


Israel and Automotive Safety. More Active Than You May Think.

Israel and Automotive Safety. More Active Than You May Think.

autonomy min

CadenceLIVE ran a session recently in Europe which I thought would be interesting to check out, especially around automotive needs. The live sessions were too early/late for me (middle of the night) and sadly the talks I really wanted to hear weren’t recorded. Instead, I dug around for updates on automotive electronics in Europe.… Read More

Synopsys Teams with IBM to Increase AI Compute Performance 1000X by 2029

Anyone who frequents SemiWiki will likely know Moore’s Law. The prediction made by Gordon Moore over 50 years ago regarding the relentless increase in transistor density and reduction in cost has tracked well for a very, very long time. In recent years, there has been spirited discussion about the end of Moore’s Law. This is a discussion… Read More

Tempus Delivering Faster Timing Signoff with Optimal PPA

In July, I explored the benefits of the new Cadence Tempus™ Power Integrity Solution. In that piece, I explored some of the unique capabilities of this new tool with Brandon Bautz, senior product management group director and Hitendra Divecha, product management director in the Digital & Signoff Group at Cadence. I recently… Read More


Digital Design Technology Symposium!

Digital Design Technology Symposium!

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


Veriest Meetup Provides Insights on Safety, Deadlocks

Veriest Meetup Provides Insights on Safety, Deadlocks

Veriest Logo min

I wasn’t familiar with Veriest, I’m guessing you may not be either. They are a design and verification services company based in the Tel Aviv area (Israel). The CEO, Moshe Zalcberg, was earlier GM for Cadence in Israel. Echoes for me of the early days working with Ajoy Bose in Interra. Veriest have a big emphasis in verification, for… Read More


Siemens PAVE360 Stepping Up to Digital Twins

Siemens PAVE360 Stepping Up to Digital Twins
by Bernard Murphy on 09-29-2020 at 6:00 am

Siemens PAVE360

The idea of a digital twin is simple enough. You use a digital model of a car, aircraft, whatever to test design ideas and prove your design will be robust across a wide range of scenarios before you commit millions of dollars and lives to proving out the real thing. As Siemens have accomplished in their PAVE360 platform. There are a … Read More
