Delivering 3D IC Innovations Faster

Delivering 3D IC Innovations Faster
by Kalar Rajendiran on 08-16-2022 at 6:00 am

System Technology Co Optimization STCO

3D IC technology development started many years ago well before the slowing down of Moore’s law benefits became a topic of discussion. The technology was originally leveraged for stacking functional blocks with high-bandwidth buses between them. Memory manufacturers and other IDMs were the ones to typically leverage this … Read More

SoC Block Diagram with EFLX and QuiddiKey

While the ASIC market has always had its advantages over alternate solutions, it has faced boom and bust cycles typically driven by high NRE development costs and time to market lead times. During the same time, the FPGA market has been consistently bringing out more and more advanced products with each new generation. With very… Read More


DSP IP for High Performance Sensor Fusion on an Embedded Budget

DSP IP for High Performance Sensor Fusion on an Embedded Budget

VPX Vector DSP Core Data Types

Whether we realize it or not, everyday applications we use depend on data gathered by sensors. We can bet that pretty much every application uses at least a couple of different types of sensors, if not more. That is because different types of sensors are better suited to collect data depending on the application, the environment … Read More


Chiplets at the Design Automation Conference with OpenFive

OpenFive Chiplet 59DAC

SemiWiki has been tracking the popularity of chiplets for two years now so it was not surprising to see that they played a key role at DAC. The other trend we foresaw was that the ASIC companies would be early chiplet adopters and that has proven true. One of the more vocal proponents of chiplets at DAC#59 was OpenFive, a 17+ year spec-to-silicon… Read More

ARM gaming min

Clearly unfazed by the collapse of the proposed merger with Nvidia, Arm just announced products in support of, what else, mobile gaming. Nvidia turf. Of course Nvidia’s gaming strength is in tethered platforms or laptops. However, understand that 50% of video gaming revenue in 2020 came from smartphone games and that growth is… Read More

A recent SemiWiki post covered the topic of protecting high-speed interfaces in data centers using security IP. That post was based on a presentation made by Dana Neustadter at IP-Soc Silicon Valley 2022 conference. Dana’s talk was an overview of various interfaces and Synopsys’ security IP for protecting those interfaces. … Read More


Interface IP in 2021: $1.3B, 22% growth and $3B in 2026

Interface IP in 2021: $1.3B, 22% growth and $3B in 2026
by Eric Esteve on 07-10-2022 at 10:00 am

IP 2017 2026

If you want to remember the key points for Interface IP in 2021, just consider $1.3B, 22%, $3B. Interface IP category has generated $1 billion 300 million in 2021, or 22.7% year to year growth, thanks to high runner protocols PCIe, DDR memory controller and Ethernet/SerDes. Even more impressive is the forecast, as IPnest predict… Read More
