Atrenta, Forte and Jasper LOVE DAC

Atrenta, Forte and Jasper LOVE DAC
by Paul McLellan on 04-16-2013 at 8:20 pm

I LOVE DAC is back. This year the sponsors are Atrenta, Jasper and Forte (hey, all semiwiki subscribers). The way it works is that you register on the DAC website here and you get a free three-day exhibit pass. In addition to everything going on in the exhibit hall, including the pavilion panels held there, the pass also gives access… Read More

I have spent the last couple of days at the GlobalPress Electronics Summit at the Chaminade Resort in Santa Cruz. Hey, it’s tough, but someone has to do it. One interesting presentation was from Cavendish Kinetics. It is especially interesting because many years ago Cavendish was founded by Mike Beunder, who I know well since… Read More

3D IC: Are We There Yet?

3D IC: Are We There Yet?
by Paul McLellan on 04-13-2013 at 4:42 pm

For the last few years, thru silicon via (TSV) based ICs have been looming in the mist of the future. Just how far ahead are they? Xiliinx famously has a high-end gate-array in production on a 2.5D interposer, Micron has a memory cube, TSMC has done various things in 3D that it calls CoWoS (chip on wafer on substrate), Qualcomm have been… Read More

Phil Kaufman Award Recipient 2013: Chenming Hu
by Paul McLellan on 04-03-2013 at 2:15 am

This year’s recipient of the Kaufman Award is Dr Chenming Hu. I can’t think of a more deserving recipient. He is the father of the FinFET transistor which is clearly the most revolutionary thing to come along in semiconductor for a long time. Of course he wasn’t working alone but he was the leader of the team at UC… Read More

The conference program for DAC is now live here including the conference itself, keynotes, some other special tracks, the pavilion panels and more. And the must-see panel is on emulation at 4pm on Tuesday afternoon moderated by…well, that would be me so I’m a bit biased.

Registration is now open here for both attendees… Read More

EDAC CEOs: consolidation, clouds, and whether Intel will buy Synopsys
by Paul McLellan on 03-15-2013 at 5:12 pm

Yesterday evening was the annual EDAC CEO forecast meeting. Actually it is not really a forecast meeting any more, more a sort of CEO response to some survey questions asked of EDAC members. Rich Valera of Needham moderated with Lip-Bu, Aart and Wally, along with Simon Segars representing the IP arm(!) of the business and Raul Camposano… Read More
