In this, the second part of a two-part series we delve further into defining worst case, this time focusing specifically on device performance.
In the last blog we talked about the steady increase in power density per unit silicon area and how worst case is definitely getting worse. We discussed how in each new FinFET node the dynamic… Read More
In this first part of a 2-part blog series, we look at defining worst case conditions, focusing specifically on device power.
With great power, comes great responsibility…
With each new technology node especially FinFET, the dynamic conditions within a chip are changing and becoming more complex in terms of process speeds, thermal… Read More
In the first of this blog trilogy, Talking Sense with Moortec…’Are you listening’, I looked at not waiting for hindsight to be wise after the event, instead make use of what’s available and act ahead of time. In the second, Talking Sense with Moortec…’See no evil’, we bizarrely saw how Sir Francis Drake, Admiral Nelson and Clint… Read More
Moortec is known for its innovative in-chip monitoring and sensing products. They’re based in the UK and have been delivering this kind of embedded technology since 2010. Dan Nenni covered an overview of the company recently. SemiWiki also hosted a webinar about optimizing power and increasing data throughput in AI from Moortec… Read More

There’s a Japanese maxim, depicting three ‘wise’ monkeys… Kikazaru, Mizaru, and Iwazaru, better known as ‘hear no evil, … Read More
During the COVID-19 pandemic I’m using Zoom and attending more webinars to keep updated on semiconductor industry trends, and one huge trend is the importance of AI applied to SoCs. Using more cores to handle ML and DL makes sense, but then how do you keep the chips within their power and reliability limits while at the same … Read More
One of the side benefits of working with SemiWiki is that you get to meet a broad range of people and in the semiconductor industry that means a broad range of very smart people, absolutely.
Recently I had the pleasure to meet Richard McPartland of Moortec. Richard and I started in the semiconductor industry at the same time but from… Read More
It is predicted that by 2030 energy consumption attributable to data centers will make up a staggering 8% of the world’s total usage!
As we move in to 2020 it’s clear that every sector of industry, including the semiconductor industry, will have a responsibility to address growing environmental concerns. We should be aware that… Read More
The rate of product development is facing very real challenges as the pace of silicon technology evolution begins to slow. Today, we are squeezing the most out of transistor physics, which is essentially derived from 60-year-old CMOS technology. To maintain the pace of Moore’s law, it is predicted that in 2030 we will need transistors… Read More
Shall I compare thee to a…Rolls Royce jet engine?
‘There is a new era dawning whereby deeply embedded sensing within all technology will bring about great benefit for the reliability and performance of semiconductor-based products.’ These were my words during a presentation to an industry audience in China back in September… Read More
