GLOBALFOUNDRIES Sets a New Bar for Advanced Non-Volatile Memory Technology

GLOBALFOUNDRIES Sets a New Bar for Advanced Non-Volatile Memory Technology
by Mike Gianfagna on 03-02-2020 at 6:00 am

eNVM applications


Whether it’s the solid-state disk in your laptop, IoT/automotive hardware or  edge-based AI, embedded non-volatile memory (eNVM) is a critical building block for these and many other applications. The workhorse technology for this capability has typically been NOR flash (eFlash), but a problem looms as eFlash presents challenges… Read More

NXP Pushes GHz Performance in Crossover MCU

NXP Pushes GHz Performance in Crossover MCU
by Bernard Murphy on 11-20-2019 at 6:00 am

RT1170 system

I first heard about NXP crossover MCUs at the 2017 TechCon. I got another update at this year’s TechCon, this time their progress on performance and capability in this family. They’ve been ramping performance – a lot – now to a gigahertz, based on a dual-core architecture, M7 and M4. They position this as between 2 and 9X faster than… Read More


Arm Reveals Custom Instructions, Mbed Partner Governance

Arm Reveals Custom Instructions, Mbed Partner Governance
by Bernard Murphy on 10-30-2019 at 6:00 am

Tipping the scale

At TechCon Arm announced two more advances against competitive threats, one arguably tactical and the other strategic, at least in this writer’s view.  The tactical move was to add support for custom instructions, the ability to collapse multiple instructions into a single instruction through customer-added logic which hooks… Read More

Synopsys and Synaptics Talk About Securing the Connected Home
by Tom Simon on 07-23-2019 at 10:00 am

Like many people, I have been adding automation to my home, and the number of connected devices I use has slowly but steadily increased. These include light bulbs, cameras, switches, a thermostat, a voice assistant, etc. Between them, they know when I am home or away, and have the ability to record images and sound. In addition to … Read More

Location Indoors: Bluetooth 5.1 Advances Accuracy
by Bernard Murphy on 07-18-2019 at 5:00 am

OK, so you’re in a giant mall, you want to find a store that sells gloves and you want to know how to get there. Or you’re in a supermarket and you need some obscure item, say capers, that doesn’t really fall under any of the main headings they post over the aisles. If you’re like most of us, certainly like me, this can be a frustrating experience.… Read More


Integrated SIMs Will Unlock IoT Growth

Integrated SIMs Will Unlock IoT Growth
by Bernard Murphy on 06-27-2019 at 5:00 am

I’m a believer that connectivity for the IoT at scale (the trillions of devices that the industry predicts) has to be cellular. This is partly based on reach, particularly outside urban areas, but is mostly based on the financial implications of that scale. Yes, you can build infrastructure for say local Wi-Fi support with backhaul… Read More


Dynamic Spectrum Allocation to Help Crowded IoT Airwaves

Dynamic Spectrum Allocation to Help Crowded IoT Airwaves
by Tom Simon on 06-26-2019 at 10:00 am

Radio frequency bandwidth has become a precious commodity, with communications companies paying top dollar for prized pieces of the spectrum. However, many radio bands are not often used efficiently. Many existing radio protocols exchange data on a fixed pair of frequencies, tying up those frequencies for other users. When… Read More
