Google Trustworthy Response to Product Vulnerabilities Demonstrates Leadership
by Matthew Rosenquist on 06-16-2019 at 10:00 am

I applaud Google for taking extraordinary steps to protect and service their customers by offering free replacements for the Titan Bluetooth Security Keys. Such product recalls can be expensive, time consuming, and prolong negative stories in the news cycles, yet it is the right thing to do.

Tortuga Crosses a Chasm

Tortuga Crosses a Chasm
by Bernard Murphy on 05-29-2019 at 7:00 am

I assume you know the Geoffrey Moore “crossing the chasm” concept, jumping from early stage enthusiasts trying your product because they’ll try anything new, to expanding to a mainstream and intrinsically more critical audience – a much tougher proposition. I’d argue there may be more than one of these transitions in the… Read More


Semiconductor IP Security Issues

Semiconductor IP Security Issues
by Daniel Payne on 05-26-2019 at 4:46 pm

Every morning I read the headlines from SemiWiki, CNN, LinkedIn and my Twitter feed, and it seems like every week that I read about another security breach that makes me wonder if anything online is secure. Companies try to harden their web sites, IT infrastructure and even their electronic products from being exploited or tampered… Read More

Anirudh Devgan (President of Cadence), gave the third keynote at CDNLive Silicon Valley this year. He has clearly become adept in this role. He has a big, but supportable vision for Cadence across markets and technologies and he’s become a master of the annual tech reveals that I usually associate with keynotes.

Compute at the Edge

Compute at the Edge
by Bernard Murphy on 05-01-2019 at 7:00 am

At first glance, this seems like a ho-hum topic- just use whatever Arm or RISC-V solution you need – but think again. We’re now expecting to push an awful lot of functionality into these edge devices. Our imaginations don’t care about power, performance and cost; everything should be possible so let’s keep adding cool features.… Read More


Auto Shows No Connection

Auto Shows No Connection
by Roger C. Lanctot on 04-21-2019 at 12:00 pm

The Washington Auto Show, one of the largest auto shows in the U.S., has a problem and it is a problem shared by other auto shows in the U.S. and around the world. It is a problem that plagues the entire industry and it may spell trouble for connecting with car customers.

I visited the Washington Auto Show last week. The event closed on … Read More

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

The euphoria of NCAA March Madness seems to spill over into the tech world. The epicenter of many tech talks this month spanning from GPU conference, OCP, SNUG to CASPA has evolved around an increased AI endorsement by many companies and its integration into many silicon driven applications.

Can I Trust my Hardware Root of Trust?

Can I Trust my Hardware Root of Trust?
by Bernard Murphy on 02-28-2019 at 7:00 am

Hardware Roots of Trust (HRoTs) have become a popular mechanism to provide a foundational level of security in a cell-phone or IoT device or indeed any device that might appear to a hacker to be a juicy target. The concept is simple. In order to offer credible levels of security, any level in the stack has to be able to trust that levels… Read More
