Intel Foundry All Hat No Cattle?

Intel Foundry All Hat No Cattle?
by Daniel Nenni on 05-12-2012 at 12:19 am

Image RemovedIf you look real close at the #49 DAC floor plan you will see the tiny Intel booth dwarfed by those of TSMC, GlobalFoundries, Samsung, and ARM. The number one semiconductor company in the world does not have the budget for the cornerstone conference of the semiconductor ecosystem? Oh my…… Intel has a big foundry… Read More

Al Speier will be talking about a teardown that they did at Munro Associates where he is a senior associate. Unfortunately they won’t actually be tearing… Read More

If you are visiting DAC and want a drink in the evening then you are in an interesting city and you don’t have to go to a bar just like the ones in the city where you live. Here are a few unique places but take note, most of these places don’t serve any food, they are all about the drinks:

Where to eat lunch or get a beer at DAC
by Paul McLellan on 05-04-2012 at 11:17 pm

Image RemovedYou are going to DAC. And you don’t want to eat a Moscone Center rubber chicken Caesar salad for lunch. But you lack local knowledge. So here are some places within a 10 minute walk. These are just places I like. Nobody is paying me to recommend them.

Fast buses at DAC

Fast buses at DAC
by Paul McLellan on 04-24-2012 at 10:05 pm

Image RemovedUPDATE: there is free WiFi on all buses.

OK, these are not the 128 bit 1GHz buses we have to hear about every day. They go roughly 40 miles in roughly an hour. But they take you from Silicon Valley to DAC and back, and they are cheaper than BART or Caltrain.

For the first time this year, DAC has buses from Silicon Valley to Moscone… Read More

"Mechanics of Creativity" at DAC 2012: Oxymoron?

"Mechanics of Creativity" at DAC 2012: Oxymoron?
by Holly Stump on 04-19-2012 at 8:13 pm

A perennial DAC highlight for me is the panel session sponsored by Women in Electronic Design. This year, it is called “The Mechanics of Creativity: What does it take to be an idea machine?”

Is this an oxymoron?

I interviewed panelist Dee McCrorey , Chief Risk Guru and Innovation Catalyst at Risktaking for Success LLC, to find out.Read More

by Paul McLellan on 04-18-2012 at 2:14 pm

I went to part of the Linley Tech Mobile Conference. This is the current incarnation of what started life as Michael Slater’s Microprocessor Report, and the twice-yearly Microprocessor Forum. These very technical analysis organizations seem to work well when they are a small group of analysts working together to cover… Read More
