Tis the season for transformer-centric articles apparently – this is my third within a month. Clearly this is a domain with both great opportunities and challenges: extending large language model (LLM) potential to new edge products and revenue opportunities, with unbounded applications and volumes yet challenges in meeting… Read More

When considering SoC architectures it is easy to become trapped in simple narratives. These assume the center of compute revolves around a central core or core cluster, typically Arm, more recently perhaps a RISC-V option. Throw in an accelerator or two and the rest is detail. But for today’s competitive products that view is a … Read More
Founded in 1990, Hyperstone is a fabless NAND flash memory controller company enabling safe, reliable and secure storage systems. The company designs, develops and delivers high-quality, innovative semiconductor solutions to enable its customers to produce world-class products for industrial, embedded, automotive and… Read More
Support for AI at the edge has prompted a good deal of innovation in accelerators, initially in CNNs, evolving to DNNs and RNNs (convolutional neural nets, deep neural nets, and recurrent neural nets). Most recently, the transformer technology behind the craze in large language models is proving to have important relevance at… Read More
This is the 15th anniversary of the TSMC Open Innovation Platform (OIP). The OIP Ecosystem Forum will kick off on September 27th in Santa Clara, California and continue around the world for the next two months in person and on-line in North America, Europe, China, Japan, Taiwan, and Israel. These are THE most attended semiconductor… Read More
Koen Verhaege, CEO of Sofics (“Solutions for ICs”), has developed his career first as an engineer, later as a business leader and entrepreneur, working on IP development and valorisation. Koen’s technical accomplishments, publications and patents are in the field of on-chip ESD protection design.
Today, Koen… Read More
Many modern processor performance benchmarks rely on as many as three levels of cache staying continuously fed. Yet, new data-intensive applications like multithreaded generative AI and 4K image processing often break conventional caching, leaving the expensive execution units behind them stalled. A while back, Semidynamics… Read More
In an era defined by digital transformation and data-intensive applications, the solid-state device (SSD) market has emerged as a critical player in reshaping storage solutions. While there are several types of non-volatile memories, each with its own unique characteristics and use cases, Flash memory is increasingly overtaking… Read More
This webinar will introduce Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) and unveil how TSN can provide value in aviation, aerospace and defence.
TSN is a new set of standard extensions based on the IEEE 802.1 and IEEE 802.3 Ethernet standards. It is designed to provide deterministic guarantees on Quality of Service (QoS) metrics and reliability… Read More
RISC-V presents a unique opportunity for designers to extend the microarchitecture with custom instructions. One possible application is digital signal filtering using finite impulse response (FIR) or median filters, potential algorithms for carrier demodulation schemes in communications systems like 5G. Codasip application… Read More
