Lip-Bu Keynote at CDNLive 2019

Lip-Bu Keynote at CDNLive 2019
by Bernard Murphy on 04-10-2019 at 7:00 am

Cadence CEO Lip-Bu Tan is always an interesting guy to listen to for his broader technology industry overview and his insight into emerging tech through his Walden International investments. Though we’re usually heads-down in challenging technical problems, it’s good to look up from time to time to check whether what … Read More


Device-as-a-Service – a Market for the Future

Device-as-a-Service – a Market for the Future
by Krishna Betai on 03-25-2019 at 5:00 am

There is an emerging market in the world of IoT, and service providers are yet to realize the potential of it. With x-as-a-Service — x taking the shape of either software, platform, or infrastructure — already in play, it is only a matter of time before Device-as-a-Service becomes a cash cow for these providers.

Like its predecessors,… Read More


Narrow-Band IoT Adoption Grows as IP Options Narrow

Narrow-Band IoT Adoption Grows as IP Options Narrow
by Bernard Murphy on 03-22-2019 at 12:00 am

Cellular as a method to communicate with the IoT is on a tear for obvious reasons. It’s long-range with no concerns about the lesser reach of Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, it needs no added infrastructure since it already works with 2G/3G/4G (and ultimately 5G I presume) and it’s designed for ultra-low power, supporting those devices expecting… Read More


Segmenting the Machine-Learning Hardware Market

Segmenting the Machine-Learning Hardware Market
by Bernard Murphy on 03-13-2019 at 12:00 pm

One of the great pleasures in what I do is to work with people who are working with people in some of the hottest design areas today. A second-level indirect to be sure but that gives me the luxury of taking a broad view. A recent discussion I had with Kurt Shuler (VP Marketing at Arteris IP) is in this class. As a conscientious marketing… Read More


Arm Deliver Their Next Step in Infrastructure

Arm Deliver Their Next Step in Infrastructure
by Bernard Murphy on 03-08-2019 at 7:00 am

Arm announced their Neoverse plans not long ago at TechCon 2018. Neoverse is a brand, launched by Arm, to provide the foundations for cloud to edge infrastructure in support of their vision of a trillion edge devices. To a cynic this might sound like marketing hype. Sure, they’re widely used in communications infrastructure and… Read More


Low Power SRAM Complier and Characterization Enable IoT Applications

Low Power SRAM Complier and Characterization Enable IoT Applications
by Tom Simon on 02-22-2019 at 7:00 am

If you are designing an SOC for an IoT application and looking to minimize power consumption, there are a lot of choices. However, more often than not, looking at reducing SRAM power is a good place to start. SRAMs can consume up to 70% of an IC’s power. SureCore, a leading memory IP supplier, offers highly optimized SRAM instances … Read More


The Best Way to Keep a Secret

The Best Way to Keep a Secret
by Bernard Murphy on 02-20-2019 at 7:00 am

Anyone knows that the best way to keep a secret is never to share it with anyone. Which works fine for your own most personal secrets, but it’s not very useful when you have to share with at least one other, such as in cyber-security. One such need, of enormous importance in the IoT, is authentication; are you who you claim to be? Seas of… Read More


Accuracy of In-Chip Monitoring for Thermal Guard-banding

Accuracy of In-Chip Monitoring for Thermal Guard-banding
by Daniel Payne on 01-28-2019 at 12:00 pm

I remember working at Intel and viewing my first SPICE netlist for a DRAM chip, because there was this temperature statement with a number after it, so being a new college graduate I asked lots of questions, like, “What is that temperature value?”

My co-worker answered, “Oh, that’s the estimated junction… Read More


A Sharper Front-End to Intelligent Vision

A Sharper Front-End to Intelligent Vision
by Bernard Murphy on 01-16-2019 at 7:00 am

In all the enthusiasm around machine learning (ML) and intelligent vision, we tend to forget the front-end of this process. The image captured on a CCD camera goes through some very sophisticated image processing before ML even gets to work on it. The devices/IPs that do this are called image signal processors (ISPs). You might … Read More


SOC security is not a job for general purpose CPUs

SOC security is not a job for general purpose CPUs
by Tom Simon on 01-14-2019 at 7:00 am

Life is full of convenience-security tradeoffs. Sometimes these are explicit, where you get to make an active choice about how secure or insecure you want things to be. Other times we are unaware of the choices we are making, and how risky they are for the convenience provided. If you leave your bike unlocked, you can expect it to be… Read More
