Eta Compute Receives Two Awards from ARM at TechCon

Eta Compute Receives Two Awards from ARM at TechCon
by Tom Simon on 11-19-2018 at 7:00 am

Many startups set out with the goal of accomplishing a technical feat that was previously considered impossible. Quite frankly most do not succeed. Yet, occasionally a company comes along that succeeds with a game changing breakthrough. ETA Compute has done just this. Yet, even more impressively, this 3-year-old company has… Read More


Why Apple failed in India and how it can recover

Why Apple failed in India and how it can recover
by Vivek Wadhwa on 11-18-2018 at 12:00 pm

Image RemovedApple iPhone sales in India are expected to have fallen dramatically this year to two million, from three million phones last year. Reuters reports that at the peak shopping season, in Diwali, Apple stores were deserted. This occurred in the world’s fastest-growing market, in which smartphone sales are increasing… Read More

Wi-Fi Standards Simplified
by Bernard Murphy on 11-01-2018 at 7:00 am

In the world of communications, the industry fairly quickly got a handle on a naming convention for cellular technology generations that us non-communication geeks could understand – 2G, 3G, 4G and now 5G, (though some of us could never quite understand the difference between 4G and LTE, at least as those terms are widely and no … Read More


ARM Turns up the Heat in Infrastructure

ARM Turns up the Heat in Infrastructure
by Bernard Murphy on 10-18-2018 at 7:00 am

I don’t know if it was just me but I left TechCon 2017 feeling, well, uninspired. Not that they didn’t put on a good show with lots of announcements, but it felt workman-like. From anyone else it would have been a great show, but this is TechCon. I expect to leave with my mind blown in some manner and it wasn’t. I wondered if the SoftBank … Read More


Synopsys Seeds Significant SIM Segue

Synopsys Seeds Significant SIM Segue
by Tom Simon on 10-02-2018 at 12:00 pm

It turns out that consumers are not alone in their love-hate relationship with SIM cards. SIM cards save us from increasingly widespread cellphone cloning. However, if your experience is anything like mine, it seemed that with every new phone, a new SIM card format was needed. Furthermore, people travelling overseas who wanted… Read More


Mesh Networks, Redux

Mesh Networks, Redux
by Bernard Murphy on 09-27-2018 at 7:00 am

It isn’t hard to understand the advantage of mesh networking (in wireless networks). Unlike star/tree configurations in which end-points connect to a nearby hub (such as phones connecting to a conventional wireless access point), in a mesh nodes can connect to nearest neighbors, which can connect to their nearest neighbors… Read More


Highly Modular, AI Specialized, DNA 100 IP Core Target IoT to ADAS

Highly Modular, AI Specialized, DNA 100 IP Core Target IoT to ADAS
by Eric Esteve on 09-24-2018 at 7:00 am

The Cadence Tensilica DNA100 DSP IP core is not a one-size-fits-all device. But it’s highly modular in order to support AI processing at the edge, delivering from 0.5 TMAC for on-device IoT up to 10s or 100 TMACs to support autonomous vehicle (ADAS). If you remember the first talks about IoT and Cloud, a couple of years ago, the IoT … Read More


A Fresh Idea in Differential Energy Analysis

A Fresh Idea in Differential Energy Analysis
by Bernard Murphy on 09-06-2018 at 7:00 am

When I posted earlier on Qualcomm presenting with ANSYS on differential energy analysis, I assumed this was just the usual story on RTL power estimation being more accurate for relative estimation between different implementations. I sold them short. This turned out to be a much more interesting methodology for optimizing total… Read More


Webinar: Differential Energy Analysis for Improved Performance/Watt in Mobile GPU

Webinar: Differential Energy Analysis for Improved Performance/Watt in Mobile GPU
by Bernard Murphy on 07-31-2018 at 7:00 am

May want to listen up; Qualcomm are going to be sharing how they do this. There is a constant battle in designing for low power; you don’t accurately know what the power consumption is going to be until you build it, but by the time you’ve built it, it’s too late to change the design. So you have to find methods to estimate power early on,… Read More


Know what 5G is? You’re probably wrong

Know what 5G is? You’re probably wrong
by Tom Simon on 07-12-2018 at 12:00 pm

If you think the transition to 5G will be anything like the transitions before it to 3G or 4G, you are in for a big surprise. Not only will the transition take longer than either of the previous transitions, its ramifications will spread far beyond cell phones and into other areas such as automobiles, AI, healthcare, and commerce. … Read More
